Hoboken is the land of Italian delis that specialize in sandwiches and housemade mozzarella. Two in particular stand out from the pack, the first being Fiore’s Deli - it’s famous for its incredible mozzarella, but even more famous for its hot roast beef hero with mutz and gravy (take note: it’s only available on Thursday and Saturday). Our vote for best sandwich in Hoboken.
