I'd lived down the street from Underground Deli for four years before stepping inside for a sandwich. The place has a hipster/college vibe (not surprising, given its close proximity to Central Connecticut State U.), but what really makes it stand out is the sandwiches... almost 50 different ones, many of them with creative names like "The Oinker" and "The Ball...

Sandwiches are fresh and a mouth full. Potato salad awesome! U have to look for it down the stairs next to "Froyo" frozen yogurt, but well worth the effort.

I love stopping by the underground deli for a treat after class. They offer free wifi and comfy places to sit and study. The staff are always polite and remember your usual order. I recommend the Hot Potato wrap, It is amazing!

The Underground has over fifty sandwiches for you to choose from....Also, you can create your own. My personal favorite sandwich is the Whiskey's, which is roast beef, tomato, swiss cheese, and russian dressing. I come to the Underground usually once a week, and it is always such a treat. All of their sandwiches are around 5-6 dollars, and include a... More

This is a college sandwich shop with a line out the door at lunch time. Sandwiches & wraps are made up as you request. Everything is very fresh. Plus they make their own mac salad, potato salad with balsamic vinegar -- very good! They have tables and free wifi. They are downstairs in the back of the plaza next to... More

When you walk into the Underground Deli, the menu seems mind boggling. Over 50 different sandwiches, all customizable to your individual taste.Don't find something you like? Make your own. Popular with CCSU faculty and staff alike, the meats are freshly cut and the dressings & condiments are fresh. The potato salad side has a pleasurable spicy kick, and the asian... More

I went in here for a chicken wrap since the blimpy's I usually went to was closed. The outside is in a hole and I witnessed a drug deal outside the door. I would not go here by yourself! It is out of view from the parking lot and any road. There was 1 person ahead of me and one... More

The Underground is one of New Britain's best-kept secrets. It's tucked away on the basement floor of a shopping plaza near the CCSU campus, and if you don't know it's there it's easy to miss. They use top-quality fresh ingredients, and they put TONS of meat in their sandwiches. Be sure to try the "whiskey" (rare roast beef with swiss,... More
