Ideal’s Sandwich Shop

$$$$(919) 724-0241
Hours:MON
12AM-3PM

Ideal's Sandwich Shop in east Durham puts broccoli rabe in basically everything. It’s smashed into the signature chicken cutlet sandwich and Philly roast pork alike, both of which make for an excellent quick lunch. Ideal's also has some grocery staples, including pasta, fresh-baked bread, and a few rotating take-and-bake dinner options, perfect for a night you’re rushing off to a show at the Durham Performing Arts Center. The space is so small there’s hardly room to wait in line, let alone sit and enjoy, so definitely plan on taking everything to go.
