1. Woody's CheeseSteaks 981 Monroe Dr NE, Atlanta, GA 30308 (Midtown)

The little wooden shack outside Piedmont Park slings slices of beef, cheese, (and beers). While turkey and veggie are on the menu, stick with the 1/3 -pound of shaved Angus beef. Go with the peppers, onions, and mushrooms, which are glued to that beef with white cheddar, provolone, or liquid orange “whiz”.

2. Victory Sandwich Bar Decatur 340 Church St, Decatur, GA 30030 (Decatur)

The Victory Sandwich Shop in Decatur is known for its small but mighty selection of tiny, affordable, and cleverly named sandwiches. The pressed squares’ flavor combinations range from the Tea Bird, with chicken, ghost pepper jack, tomato, lettuce, and sweet tea mayo, to the Okie Dokie, with Brie, confit tomato, artichoke, arugula, and pesto. If you’re looking to mix it up, salads and sides are also options. On the beverage side of things, get a brain freeze from a “world famous” Jack and Coke Slushie or sip on a spiked soda.

4. Quoc Huong Banh Mi Fast Food 5150 Buford Hwy C-170, Doraville, GA 30340

The best version of the Vietna-French ‘wich is found, of course, on our famous I-85 parallel. The pork is marinated, slow-roasted, then finished with fire. A house-spiced mayo calms the heat, and the customary daikon-carrot blend has the bitter and tart to make that layer complete.
