This white brick Bridgeport deli, located only a Jermaine Dye dinger or two away from U.S. Cellular, is an old school corner grocery that just happens to make a few sandwiches. Sort your way down the aisles, past the glinting jars of pickled veggies and crinkly bags of potato chips, and you'll find a small deli case and an even smaller prep counter where you order up your beef. Uncle Johnny's roasts its own meat on site, and as a result, serves some of the freshest tasting beef on the block. Served on a French loaf, the meat is spicy, substantial and entirely underrated…it's the Steve Buscemi of Italian beef.
Average cost: $10-$20
