To subvert grumpy monarchs, angry medieval youths scrawled condiment graffiti such as "Fran Tanner has plague" or "the king is a jerk" inside their sandwiches. Dig beneath lettuce to bring history to light with today's Groupon: for $5, you get two sandwiches at Koppas Fulbeli Deli (up to a $12 value), a family-owned business located on North Farwell Avenue.
Selected by sated citizenry as one of Milwaukee's best sandwich shops three years running, Koppas Fulbeli fashions lavish layers of fresh fillings into hearty handheld fare. Hot off the grill sandwiches include the Lunklunk, with shaved ham, mozzarella, pepperoncini, and horseradish couched cozily between two slices of marble rye ($4.79). Submarine-style eats also scintillate palates, such as the Baron Rodgers, which comes crowned with shaved smoked turkey, swiss cheese, and avocado ($5.79). An enticing list of meat-free sandwiches ensures that herbivores feel as welcome as an engagement ring in a box of popcorn. Koppas Fulbeli sandwiches streamline the dining process, returning dining to days before fork lobbyists forced forks into nearly every restaurant, construction site, and spoon band.
CityVoters named Koppa’s Fulbeli Deli the #2 Best Sandwich Shop in 2009, #3 Best Sandwich Shop in 2008, and #1 Best Sandwich Shop in 2007. OnMilwaukee.com featured the shop. One hundred percent of Urbanspooners like it, and 26 Yelpers give it an average of four stars.
