Schlotzsky's Deli Muffaletta Sandwich

Making the Schlotzsky's Connection

When it comes to quality sandwiches, how does Texas-based chain Schlotzsky's fare? Sandwich maven Between the Bread weighs in.

For years, I've been connecting through Houston airport and longingly passing by a Schlotzsky's counter, but I never seem to end up there at meal time. This year, our stop en route to Pensacola fell around lunch hour, so we finally got to enjoy one of the muffuletta-inspired sandwiches.

It's judgment day for this deli sandwich! See its deli board score when you keep reading.


We ordered the Turkey, Original-style; the Original is the sandwich that launched Schlotzsky's in Austin, TX. Featuring turkey, salami, three cheeses, onions, lettuce, tomato, mustard, and black olives inspired by muffulettas' olive salad, this Schlotzsky's sammie came on the usual giant round bread, which was just as tasty as I remembered. Overall, the sandwich wasn't as great as my previously experiences with Schlotzsky's, but for airport food, it was outstanding.

We had a few Schlotzky's in the Minneapolis area several years ago. The two in my neck of the woods closed shop within that time. I just never had the love for this chain. But, as with anything culinary, it's all about whatever makes your peanut butter Skippy! :D

I LOVE Schlotzsky's. I'm a 5th generation Texan from Dallas, and any chance I get a craving for a sandwich, I go to Schlotzsky's.. not to mention they have the best chips ever.
