Unlike a sand witch, a sandwich doesn't have the power to turn men into sand and sand into poisonous glass. Let a sandwich cast a devastating spell on hunger pains with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of specialty and custom-made sandwiches from Salvador Deli. This NoDa arts-district hotspot also has live music on the weekends.
Salvador Deli offers a menu decorated with signature sandwiches and a "paint your own portrait" option that allows you to create your own masterpiece. Sink your hunger fangs into the fan-flavorite Cubano ($5.99), a medley of ham, baby swiss, tangy mustard, and pickles pressed between two hearty slices of focaccia bread. The star-crossed veggie lover ($5.99) is a layered concoction of pesto mayo, muenster, avocado, red-pepper hummus, sprouts, red onion, lettuce, tomato, and cukes on multi-grain bread. If the eclectic art sprinkled throughout the deli inspires you to explore your inner creative weirdness, you can customize your own sandwich ($4.99 to $6.99). Start by choosing a bread base, then decide on the proper protein source, and top it off with veggies and sauces.
Nearly every weekend, Salvador Deli summons local six-stringers, master crooners, and kazoo krews for live music shows on the indoor or outdoor stages. The bright interior offers plenty of seating, but if the weather is having a good hair day, locals often take advantage of the outdoor patio, tippling libations that range from Miller Lite to niche microbrews.

- I like to eat-in, as the deli itself is pretty cute, combining kitsch with down-home in a way that seems peculiarly Charlottean to me. – Joy S., Yelp
