There is a sandwhich shop in Golden (called D’Deli) and they try to make a sandwhich with similar ingredients to what you would find in a fancy restaurant, and their business is super laid back. They have awesome bread too. That’s the most important part.
Their website doesn’t do them justice (they are a really small shop. No public bathrooms, 2 tables inside): https://www.ddeligolden.com/menu
For some reason, there is also a jimmy johns, a subway, and a quiznos within walking distance. Why would anyone visit any of those? There is also a snarf’s, which would be my favorite if it wasn’t 1 block from D’Deli. In college, we had a class at 10am, so we went by this shop for the first time. They had the door open, but the greeted us and told us they open at 10. We told them we had class, thanks anyway. They made us a sandwhich to take to class, but their register wasn’t open, so they didn’t charge us. Customer for life.
I don’t like pickles, but I love giardiniera or pickled hot pepper mix on a sandwhich. My staple is usually turkey, pepperoni, provolone, and hot pepper mix. Sometimes lettuce.
