Readers' Choice: Favorite Stratford Sandwich Shop

Help us crown Stratford's best sandwich-maker in this week's Readers' Choice contest.

Each of us has a favorite place to go -- and Patch's weekly Readers' Choice contest will tackle more subjects soon enough.

Your local Patch editors all feel this is going to be a great category to let our readers debate and discuss: What's your favorite deli/sandwich shop -- and why?

See the list and poll below for your options.

You have a favorite sandwich. Tell your neighbors why it's so great by posting a rating on Stratford Patch's Places directory -- just click on the link to your go-to sandwich shop below -- and cast your vote in our poll (just once please!)

If your favorite sandwich shop does not have a directory listing on Stratford Patch (and thus is not hyperlinked), please leave a rating/review in the comments section below.

The poll part isn't scientific so it's not the sole determinant of a Readers' Choice winner. The local editor will determine the winner based on a point system in which poll results and ratings are considered equally. Voting in the poll closes at 9 a.m. Friday.

See our rules for more information (attached).

Thanks! Questions? Email me at jason.bagley@patch.com

Here's your list (don't see your favorite deli here -- let us know in the comments and we'll add it):

Wow! Is Pickle Barrel really that good? I never knew!!!!!
Alex Ghajar March 27, 2012 at 01:23 AM
Hannah's Kitchen has the best food around all of town!!!

Gaetano's has no rival. Pickle Barrel workers should be working on their sandwiches instead of deleting their cookies and voting again.

Haven't seen Pickle Barrel or Hannah's Kitchen covered by various media outlets.

I believe All American Deli is closed, is that the one that was on East Main?
Maureen McLarin March 27, 2012 at 05:24 PM
Hilltop is a great deli! Great prices, great fresh sandwiches!
arkay March 27, 2012 at 06:21 PM
Gaetano's is the best in the state. It really doesn't matter what the poll says as it doesn't change that fact.

Hannah's Kitchen is the BEST! We love it!! :)
Mona March 27, 2012 at 10:29 PM
Hannah's Kitchen has the best bacon, egg and cheese sandwich around!!!!!!
Monica March 28, 2012 at 12:06 PM
Hannah's Kitchen has delicious sandwiches and food. They are now serving dinners too. Hannah is one of the nicest people I have ever met who cares about her customers. When you walk into Hannah's Kitchen you are treated like family. Hannah and her staff are amazing!

Hannah's is wonderful. Sandwiches are great. Bill's soups are fantastic, he makes some of the best I have ever had. The hummus is tremendous, home made fresh and simply the best to be had. The staff is great everyone is very friendly and Hannah is a kind warm hearted woman. I would not step into any other deli in Stratford.
Cindy Cable March 29, 2012 at 12:04 AM
Hannah's is the best!
Vinny sciuto March 29, 2012 at 01:24 PM
Gaetano's by far is the best
Jeff W. March 29, 2012 at 03:47 PM
Been going to Hannah's Kitchen since they opened. Always friendly and food is good, fair prices. Hoping they will add some all natural organic items to their menu!
Dave Donahue March 29, 2012 at 04:55 PM
Hannah's has the best steak and cheese anywhere! Prime Rib freshly sliced! It is amazing.
Ann March 29, 2012 at 05:33 PM
Everything at Hannah's is great. Fresh ingredients, friendly service, reasonable prices. They are number 1 in my book.
Brittany March 29, 2012 at 08:14 PM
Hannah's Kitchen by far! So friendly and GREAT homemade food/sandwiches/dinners love it!
Beth March 29, 2012 at 08:34 PM

Ann March 29, 2012 at 09:44 PM
Hannah's is great. Great food, great prices, great people!
Brandon March 29, 2012 at 10:42 PM
Gaetano's is a real deli...a deli that has all the good quality meats and cheeses that a good deli is supposed to have. Add to that the best service. Simply the best!!!
John March 30, 2012 at 12:48 AM
Gaetanos is by far the best. All of you must have lost your taste buds or something because none of you know what you're talking about! Gaetanos have the best service and food! You MUST go there! They're the best there. They are so friendly and they're not very pricey! Gaetanos still is and forever will be the best deli in Stratford, Connecticut!
John March 30, 2012 at 12:53 AM
100 more votes for Gaetano's Salumeria (listed in the choices).
Daniel G. March 30, 2012 at 01:07 AM
Hannah's has the best ribs and wraps around! My #1 choice any day!
LAW March 30, 2012 at 03:12 AM
Gaetanos of course!
Dave Fuller March 30, 2012 at 05:38 AM
Hannah's gets first for me with Gaetanos a close second
Jennylee Hoffman-Milano March 30, 2012 at 12:43 PM
Gotta love Gaetanos, their eggplant grinder w/ fresh mozzarella on top is to die for, along with their chef salad. Plus they're so friendly and quick. They treat you like family.
Noreen Calgreen April 17, 2012 at 11:52 AM
I have to agree with jennylee. I don't go very often to Gaetanos, but when I do they treat me as if I come there everyday! Everything I have ever eaten from Gaetanos has been the best!
Al Croteau March 25, 2014 at 09:12 AM
Gaetano's is BY FAR the best deli in Stratford, possibly the best in CT! I must say however, and I haven't seen it mentioned yet, that LUCY D's Deli on East Main St has the best porketta sandwich around. Only one I've had better was from Seymour sandwich shop.
