Sandwich Watch: Oby’s Muffuletta

From-scratch olive salad part of savory sandwich success

Oby’s menu describes its muffuletta as “the New Orleans original only better,” and you’ll be hard-pressed to top it. It’s packed with salami, pepperoni, smoked ham, Swiss cheese, topped with mayo and Oby’s Italian olive salad, served on six-inch French muffuletta bread.

“We make our own olive salad—from scratch, with celery, green olives, vinegar and oregano—and that makes a difference,” says co-owner Ayers Spencer.

Oby’s is at 1931 University Avenue and is open seven days a week from 10:30 a.m. until 10 p.m. — Tad Wilkes
