Ethnic Sandwich Shop

When cruising along Omaha’s south 13th street, the bright red barn tempts passersby with the smell of fresh bread, bubbling tomato sauce, and melting mozzarella. Affectionately referred to as a “hole-in-the-wall,” Ethnic Sandwich Shop is an Omaha staple serving hearty Italian fast food since 1977. Yes… these Italian comfort classics are only available to eaters on the go. Incidentally, the world’s best zoo is less than two miles away, so how about picnic next to the world’s largest indoor desert?

The meatball sub is a top menu item, with flavorful house tomato sauce made from an old family recipe. The Slammer is a massive club sandwich adorned with house Italian and ranch dressings. The hot sandwiches are craveable, but every Omahan knows you gotta go to the Ethnic Sandwich Shop on Friday to get a hefty serving of the mac ‘n’ cheese.
