Baker Bros American Deli, Sandwiches, Fort Worth-TX

Last visit: January 2014

Rating: Buy

Other DFW locations: Dallas (3); Fort Worth; Irving; Plano (2)


Other Texas locations: Amarillo (2); Lubbock; Texarkana

January 2014 update: On this visit, I had the Kentucky Club and tried their Ale Cheese Soup. The soup is super cheesy, and comes with chives and bacon bits. Mrs. RJG had a go for their Chicken Salad sub. All received strong marks from us. We still don't visit here much due to the longer drive, but it's definitely worth visiting if in the Alliance area.

Original review

We've covered Baker Bros prior with their Southlake location, that we predicted would close due to the cost of the surroundings. And indeed it came to pass. It also seems that their plans to go national have been derailed, and they shuttered all their stores outside of Texas. However, they now seem to have regained their footing with new openings coming up in both DFW and in West Texas (Lubbock, Amarillo). And that would include this relatively new location in far north Ft. Worth, which is now the closest store to the RJG. And we recently made our first visit there.

As for their sandwiches, Mrs. RJG and I think they are some of the best in town. We love their variety of breads, and meat/veggie selections. They also have excellent soups, salads, and chili. My favorite three sandwiches are the Siciliano, Kentucky Club, and South Beach. Mrs. RJG really likes their Tuna. As I said in the original review 4 years ago, the biggest issue is I don't go here enough. And while they aren't around the corner to us, it's still close enough for me to sneak in an extended lunch once in a while.
