Food Basket: Pick Up a Sandwich on Your Lunch Break

October 28, 2014 12:50 pm

Vallejo locals know Food Basket is a hidden gem. This mom-and-pop grocery store is most beloved for its deli counter, which serves up some of the best sandwiches in the area.

One Yelp reviewer notes that you can't go wrong at Food Basket no matter which sandwich you choose, and many other reviewers confirm that opinion. Nonetheless, the Jamaican jerk turkey sandwich with cheddar is a particular favorite among regular customers, as is the pastrami with Swiss on toasted French bread. Many sandwiches are made with double meat, but the price is never doubled so you're likely to get a generous serving for a very low price. Plus, since Food Basket is also a grocery store, you can pick up a few things you need for dinner while you're waiting for your sandwich to be made.

Food Basket
