Amazing Italian submarine sandwiches that are huge, flavorful, and inexpensive.
There are many all over town but the one listed here, just west of Las Vegas Blvd. on Sahara, is the closest to The Strip.
Everything from turkey and ham to more unique concoctions including one that is like Thanksgiving dinner on a sandwich, all with an Italian spin to things.
Fast food bland.
Fast food efficient.
More expensive than Subway or Quizno's but bigger and a million times better.
There are locations all over Las Vegas - check their website to find one close to where you'll be staying.
The best sandwiches in the world. Seriously.
Capriotti's started more than two decades ago in Delaware but established a beachhead in Vegas in the early part of the 2000's with many locations throughout the valley and is now spreading throughout the country including locations in California. To put it simply, if one of these opens near you, go there immediately.
The most convenient ones to the Strip are located at 322 W. Sahara, about a block west of the former Sahara hotel and at 4480 Paradise, across the street from the Hard Rock Hotel. You'll also find them at several hotels including Green Valley Ranch.
Their standard subs cover all the bases including turkey, roast beef, Italian, ham & cheese, tuna, salami, meatball, and steak on which you can get your choice of cheeses and all the fixings. But before your eyes start glazing over, take a look at the prices: $6 to $8 for a small, $7 to $10 for a medium and $10 to $14 for a large.
A lot of money you may be thinking. Well, how's this for a wake up call - the small is 9", the medium is a foot long, and the large is an almost insane 20"! I got the 9" cheese steak and I wasn't able to finish it all.
As delicious and fresh as these "regular" sandwiches are, it's the so-called "Cap's Specials" that really set the place apart. You could try Thanksgiving on a roll with "The Bobbie," featuring turkey, cranberry sauce, and stuffing. Or perhaps you'd prefer the "Slaw Be Jo" with roast beef, cole slaw, provolone cheese, and Russian dressing.
These specials are totally unique, completely delicious, and priced within a few pennies of the "regular" sandwiches. I have to admit thought that it is still the simple ham and cheese that I go back to every time.
They also offer hamburgers and sausage subs, smaller regular sandwiches, vegetarian meatless soy subs (turkey, bologna, salami, etc.), and gigantic party platters.
The food tastes a lot fresher than that stuff you'll find at the national chains, the portions are larger, and the selection is much more interesting so the next time you're in Vegas, bypass the hotel food court and head off to Capriotti's for a taste of what a real sandwich is all about.
