Delicious Deli Fare at Fricanos

With some perfect fall weather upon us, we thought it would be a great time to stroll around campus, pop into some shops along the Drag, and dine al fresco for lunch. Fricano’s Deli was the perfect spot to grab a sandwich to enjoy on their shaded patio.

Fricano's is the perfect sandwich dive for grabbing a bite on campus

Fricano’s has been serving up tasty sandwiches in the campus area since 2006. With weekday specials from Curry Chicken Salad to “Flyin’ Hawaiian,” it’s no wonder patrons keep coming back for more. It was hard enough to narrow down choices on the everyday menu!

On our visit we knew we had to try the Italian Club, made with Genoa salami, pastrami, pepperoni, mozzarella, lettuce, tomato, olives and homemade Italian dressing on sourdough. We almost went for the “Pizza (no it’s a sandwich),” made with pepperoni, salami, onions, tomato, basil and mozzarella with marinara sauce, but decided that will be for next time!

Our other selection was the Chicken Salad, tossed with pesto mayo, diced poblano peppers, and purple onions. You have the option to order a full size sandwich for $8.25, or half a sandwich plus a side for $8.75. We chose the combo so we could sample the pasta salad and soup of the day - tomato basil. The full sandwiches looked pretty huge, so I’m definitely glad we opted for the Fricano’s combo. And don't worry, if you're watching the carbs - Fricano's also offers a selection of tasty salads.

Campus is a great spot to stroll around and people watch, and Fricano’s is perfect for re-energizing mid-day. Grab a table on their patio and enjoy one of their delicious sandwiches today!
