So this was my first trip to the Outer Banks, and we did the long drive to Hatteras and were wanting a late lunch/sandwich stop before heading back to Nags Head...and we stopped by two places that turned out to be takeout only (Delta/Covid August)...but we wanted to eat in/get out of the car & we had noticed this deli on the way down so we headed back & looked for it: serious OMG we were so glad we did. The Pamlico Deli roasts some of their own meats, imports others, all superior quality...we ordered the Italian sub (proscuitto, capacolla, sopressata, fresh mozzarella, roasted red peppers, lettuce, tomato, pickled onion, & italian dressing, soft white italian loaf: all exceptional fresh quality--this is NOT your "s-chain" sub sandwich) and we ordered a Reuben (roasted/corned beef--just light salt and seasoning so you taste the meat--swiss cheese, pub mustard, and the absolute best sauerkraut I have EVER had: crunch yet soft, tangy yet not overly salty, just perfect--and on thick cut freshly baked marble rye that was incredibly light and yet somehow dense enough to support the heavy load of the meat/cheese/sauerkraut)...we split both sandwiches so we could both enjoy and we both thought these were the best sub & best ever imaginable Reuben ever. I live in Maryland and my friend lives in Austin TX but we hope to be back in the OBX in the future and when we are, we will make the trip to Frisco just for the sandwiches!!
*They also have a collection of deli salads that we didn't try--but we did take a couple of their classic "7-Layer bars" home with us and they were excellent as well
**Furnishings & wine bar (& general condition of the whole interior) looked new/fresh, like it might be a new business or in a new location, so I hope they get good buzz going...hard to start a business during COVIDMore
