Eat Street Deli
Tucked away in the medical district of Lufkin, this little gem does sandwiches right, offering six bread choices (among them multigrain, marble rye, and country French). Our French dip sandwich came with a lovely horseradish cream sauce along with the requisite jus, and a friend shared bites of Reuben on Jewish rye with Russian dressing and sauerkraut. (They’ll give you a “pile of pickles” on top if you ask nicely.) Though we felt a bit piggish, we sampled the Southern pecan bread pudding and then took the entire dish home. Also heading home for dinner, a gyro loaded with shaved lamb, tzatziki sauce, and thinly sliced cucumbers and purple onions (both reportedly locally sourced).
