The submarine sandwich is true to its namesake, mimicking the vessel's long and slender body, as well as its ability to remain undetected by whale ears. Sink incisors into aerodynamic aliments with today’s Groupon: for $6, you get $12 worth of sandwiches and more at Tucci’s SouthSide Subs, with two locations in South Austin.
David Tucci stacked his first sandwich more than 20 years ago and today follows his traditional blueprints of East Coast-Italian recipes. He and his sub squadron masterfully construct a number of scrumptious submarines stuffed with premium deli meats and cheeses. Treat a tongue to a taste of the Mediterranean by licking an atlas or chomping on the authentic italian gourmet sandwich—a best-selling hoagie showcasing prosciutto, capicola, black-pepper ham, and salami beneath an oil-soused canopy of provolone, veggies, peppers, red-wine vinegar, and spices ($7.50 regular). Those in search of zesty succulence can escalate protoplasmic thermometers with the jalapeño philly cheesesteak sub—made with steak or chicken, cheeses, flame-licked mushrooms and onions, and freshly grilled jalapeños ($6.25 regular). Garden gurus can gingerly fill stomach satchels with the cheese-topped veggie sub ($4.75).
Beyond the grainy restraints of the submarine roll, Tucci’s outputs sweet conclusions, including cookies ($0.50), gourmet brownies ($3), and Tastykakes ($1.50). Likewise, portable-pleasure consumers can complement any sandwiched satisfaction with a side of crisp chips and a tall thirst quencher for an extra $1.75.
