This massively popular sandwich spot gets crowded with Arlingtonians who come for some of the best Italian subs in the area. The pizza is good too, and there's a nice selection of Italian groceries and wine to stock your pantry or round out your meal. But don't be tempted to skip the wait at this carryout-only grocery store — the pre-made stuff isn't as good (you can call ahead if you don't want to take a number and wait). The Lyon Village original recently opened a larger second location in Westover.

"A sandwich for dinner? The hefty Philly-style subs at this sprawling takeout/specialty grocery aren’t just for lunch—and they’re the best reason to stop by. Our favorites, the Capri and the Milano, are made with such fixings as delicately flavored prosciutto and zesty salami. Most subs are $6.99 for a small—which will satisfy all but hungry-man appetites—and $7.99 for a large. Call ahead to avoid the line. …" See Full Review…»

"Wildly popular sandwich spot, pizza and sandwiches are only great when fresh-made, Italian market, off-premise wines."

This unassuming neighborhood restaurant in the same strip as Lost Dog Café is a reliable source for Thai favorites.
