Elsie's Pickle Sandwich

A small deli off the beaten path, Elsie’s Down the Shore had to make a lot of noise just to get noticed. From the start, they intended to do things differently — which came in the form of Elsie’s pickle sandwich. It’s all the meat, cheese and dressing you want with a pickle as the roll, instead of bread. It became an Internet sensation. Pictures of Elsie’s pickle sandwich have been shared thousands of times. But they didn’t stop there. Now they also have cucumber roll-ups, lettuce wraps, cheesesteak-stuffed peppers and tomato sliders.

“You’ll be hooked, I’m telling you, their food is addicting,” says Donna Broughton of Mullica Township.
Broughton and her husband drive 40 minutes just to pick up food from Elsie’s on a regular basis.
“We’re retired and we’re foodies, so we enjoy discovering great places like Elsie’s and don’t mind driving,” says Broughton, who learned about Elsie’s through a friend’s Facebook post of the pickle sandwich. That friend just happens to live in Tennessee.
“The pickle sandwich is definitely messy to eat,” Broughton beams, “but from that first bite, the crunch in your mouth and the popping of flavors, you’re hooked.”
