Long Live the Republic of Sandwich

Most summer days in Austin are full of adventure and activity, which makes quick and casual meals essential. Republic of Sandwich is a cozy neighborhood joint that serves gourmet sandwiches made with artisan meats cured in-house. It's the best taste for a quick bite. The team behind the endeavor cut their teeth working in luxury restaurants and brought those experiences to the art of the sandwich.

The Big Bad Wolf makes for a hearty meal.

The menu features hearty and delicious craft sandwiches, breakfast tacos, and bagels. We stopped into the deli for a quick lunch and noshed on the colorful Big Bad Wolf (roast pork, ham, bacon, celery seed coleslaw, and provolone). Some other sandwich options include the roasted pork based (215), the roasted beef Unruly Roast, and the Jive Turkey. They even offer some interesting creations like the Summer Swine, which pairs ham and watermelon, and the vegetarian Pharoahe Munch.

The sweet and spicy Kimchi Brussels are an obvious choice.

The counter fridge is full of daily side specials and you’d be a fool not to round out your meal with the Kimchi Brussels. If for some reason brussels aren’t your thing, you’ll also find pickled seasonal vegetables, Curried Cauliflower, Broccoli Slaw (which includes carrots and jicama in celery seed dressing), and Potato Salad. Although you should be aware, the sandwiches definitely pack some heft. It’d be a good idea for two people to split a sandwich and a side.

If you’re in the neighborhood in time for breakfast, you can choose from their creative collection of breakfast tacos like the 512 (featuring egg, broccoli rabe, provolone, and roasted pork) or bagel sandwiches like the J-Roc (with egg, pulled pork, provolone, and long hots).

An exterior view of the deli.

This tiny shop is well designed with white subway tile and wood accents throughout, but can only offer a handful of small tables along a bench that lines the wall. There are also only a few seating options outside. Large groups may feel the squeeze, but it’s a perfect choice for smaller group lunches and breakfasts. 

This weekend take a trip to the Republic of Sandwich!
