1. Luke's Inside Out 1109 S Lamar Blvd, Austin, TX 78704 (Austin)

Though this purveyor of giant sandwiches is in fact a trailer, don't underestimate the life-size flavor of its sandwiches. Serving up sammies like "The Cow" prepared with Brisket Banh Mi smoked brisket, cucumbers, carrots, cilantro, jalapeños & siracha aioli, Luke's individual portions pack enough flavor and caloric heft for your entire day's meals.

2. Dang Bahn Mi 9070 Research Blvd , Austin, TX 78758 (Allandale)

This street-food-inspired Vietnamese sandwich shop aims to bring authentic Southeast Asian fare to Allandale. There are a variety of bánh mì options (oxtail is the most popular) and all sandwiches are served in baskets on newspaper. Other delicacies worth trying are the pho, bún noodle bowls, Spring rolls, and Thai papaya salad.

3. Mettle 507 Calles St, Austin, TX 78702 (Central East)

From Bridget "Make It Rainey" Dunlap and a chef who did time at Olivia and Napa's French Laundry, Mettle's got a metal-heavy interior and and delicious eats like a flat iron steak sided with freshly fried potato chips with cheesy Mornay sauce.

4. El Sapo 1900 Manor Rd, Austin, TX 78722 (Cherrywood)

This roadside haunt in Cherrywood serves Tex-Mex inspired diner bites (there's a lot of queso involved). Between a sunny patio, delicious and creative burgers, and whole bunch of cocktails, there's almost too much to like about El Sapo. The generous 3-7pm daily happy hour deal on margaritas and brews is just the cherry on top.

5. Noble Sandwich Co. 4805 Burnet Rd, Austin, TX 78756 (Rosedale)

This is the popular sandwich shop's second location, accessible to central Austin fans of the between-the-bread innovators. Try out breakfast in the form of their Oxtail Waffle (a potato and leek waffle topped with braised oxtail and an over-easy egg), and come back later for the Pecan Smoked Beef Brisket.
