Looking for some New Orleans-style po’ boys and muffulettas in St. Louis? Then look no further than Blues City Deli, located on McNair Avenue in Benton Park. They’ve been turning out both the classics and new interpretations of Crescent City favorites since 2004, and since then they’ve racked up awards and accolades including being named the city’s best sandwich shop in 2010 by Fox 2, plenty of rankings by St. Louis Magazine, and the Sauce Magazine Readers’ Choice Award for Best Sandwich Shop from 2007 to 2010.

More than 30 sandwiches are on offer, ranging from the Benton Park (smoked ham, roast beef, turkey, and Provel) to the Veno (hot roast beef dipped in au jus with bacon and Provel); to the Valenza Special Muffuletta (Genoa salami, smoked ham, mortadella, provolone, mozzarella, and homemade olive salad); the Memphis Stax (smoked pulled pork, barbecue sauce, and Cole slaw); and Mel’s Blue and Tangy (smoked pulled chicken, bacon, tomato, onion, blue cheese dressing, and Zing sauce). Hot dogs in New York, Chicago, and chili cheese styles are also available, along with pastrami sandwiches, vegetarian sandwiches, and a handful of salads. Definitely something for everyone!
