Eastcut Sandwich Bar

Whether you just finished a morning run through Duke Forest or are about to start an afternoon of finding out how bad your seasonal allergies can be at the Duke Gardens, head to nearby Eastcut Sandwich Bar. The place is huge, with plenty of parking and an outdoor garden that’s open all year, with heat lamps for colder months. The seasonally-changing menu always includes at least two vegetarian options alongside things like the Lomo Saltado Cheesesteak, a cheesesteak with curly fries inside of the bun. And don’t skip the giant mozzarella sticks, because what’s better after some exercise than large pieces of fried cheese?

Parker and Otis

Parker and Otis is in a kitschy gift shop in City Center, so after spending $20 on candy and things you don’t need, get some of our favorite sandwiches.
