At City Pork during lunchtime, the line is out the door most days. Word has gotten out about their sandwiches. City Pork is not only a sandwich shop, it is also a deli and charcuterie, meaning that their sandwiches are made with their house-made slow-roasted, smoked or braised meats, along with condiments, pickles, and various sides.
They also make tasso, boudin, and andouille sausage, pâtés, confits, and several kinds of dry-cured meats. The results are heavenly. One of the best sellers is the Big Pig, a sandwich made of a pork shoulder smoked for 17 hours, loaded with BBQ sauce Carolina-style on a brioche bun, and served with coleslaw. Be sure to get some truffle chips with that.
City Pork also has a Brasserie & Bar on Jefferson Hwy. Check their 4-7pm happy hour specials on wine, beer, and cheese and charcuterie boards.
