Readers' Choice: Best Sandwich in East Providence

What's your favorite place to grab one in East Providence?

A sandwich is a quick-and-easy meal, and on most menus, it's the most reliable pick when you're not sure about the other food. It's also usually the cheapest thing you can order.

But as easy as it is to make a great sandwich, only a few places offer a truly awe-inspiring sandwich. You know, the one that you can't help but order even when you know there are more sophisticated dishes on the menu.

This week, we want to know: Which restaurant or deli serves up the best sandwich in East Providence?

Is it , , , , Oxford Tavern or Johnny's Subs & More? Or how about the , , Riccotti Sandwich Shops or ?

Vote in our poll below, then share your thoughts in the comments section. If we left your favorite sandwich shop off the list, note that in the comments as well.

We'll leave the poll up all week then close voting at 9 a.m. Friday. At noon that day, we'll share your top local pick. Then be sure to watch the site over the weekend when we tally up the top votes and announce the sandwich shop that got the most rave reviews across all of our Rhode Island sites.

Because this poll is not scientific, it is not the sole consideration in choosing a winner. The winner will be determined by the Patch editor, based on poll results and reviews on Patch Places. Please vote only once per survey, per Patch.

I haven't been since Jim sold it, but Ricotti's used to make the grandest of them all

Miller's roast beef sandwiches are years and years of consistent, lean good quality, feel good and very tasty....a sure to satisfy quick sandwich fairly priced! Good ff's too and the clam strips are another favorite of mine!

Ricotti's in Rumford is by far the best. It has a new name (don't know it) but it's still the same.

I've been twice since Jim sold it and it's not the same. Okay but nowhere near as good as it used to be.

Vic's Sandwich Shop, formally Ricotti's, has excellent sandwichs at affordable prices and has outstanding fish & chips!

Vic's Sandwich Shop (formerly Ricotti's) is a hidden gem, on Newport Avenue, they make the best italian grinders around.

I go to Zoe's on South Broadway at least twice a week. Best sandwiches and calzones I have ever had. Hamburger and grilled chicken are my favorites. Get the french fries as well, they're fantastic.
