Brown Dog Deli
Located in Charleston, Brown Dog Deli serves up the best deli sandwich in South Carolina. Though there is no shortage of delicious options, like the Pig n' Fig or the Knuckle Sandwich, the best of the best is the Apple Butter Jeans. The refreshingly delicious combination of crisp apples, creamy cheese and smoky meats makes this the sandwich to beat.
Brown Dog Deli has two location around Charleston: 40 Broad Street and 225 Calhoun Street.
Here's what Cheapism had to say:
"This friendly deli with two locations puts a strong emphasis on high-quality, local ingredients for its sandwiches. While you'll find several excellent classic deli options, many served fresh off the grill (and several with sautéed peppers), it also offers lots of vegan and vegetarian choices, with an extensive list of specialty sandwiches. The top dog among them is the Apple 'Butter' Jeans, with melted brie, sliced Granny Smith apples, local apple butter, fresh arugula, honey ham, mesquite-smoked turkey, and applewood-smoked bacon on a panini-pressed local French baguette."
