Knuckle Sandwiches | Super Hero Sandwiches | Augusta, GA

Review by: Michael Stern

Super hero sandwiches are nowhere better!


Many alluring restaurants line Broad Street in downtown Augusta, Georgia. They range from dive-bar delicious (Sports Center pool hall) to deluxe (Frog Hollow Tavern). Knuckle Sandwiches practically hides itself among them. You don’t expect to find food of such high culinary standards in so modest a setting. The sandwiches made here defy expectations. Culinary panache defines this little kitchen.

The Super Hero Sandwiches:

Foremost, the PBR-B-Q: Clumps of smoky, beer-battered shoulder weigh upon the loaf that holds them. Melted Swiss cheese tops the meat. The sandwich comes with peppery barbecue sauce. BBQ parlors around the nation have gotten on the burnt-ends bandwagon. While not technically burnt ends, these ribbons of supreme succulence set a benchmark. Only Kansas City’s best burnt ends give them a run for the money.

Augusta, Georgia, is a city of excellent cheese steaks. Jackie M’s & Son Cafe and the Philly Cheese Steak Factory each has its own compelling variation of Philadelphia’s gift to sandwichery. But nothing anywhere, not even in Philly, can compare to the one they make at Knuckle Sandwiches. It’s grilled ribeye, lusciously flavorful, gobbed with cheese that is not Velveeta and piled into a sturdy-enough roll. On the side comes Thai chili ranch sauce.

Beyond The Basics:

Choose from such other always-available sandwiches as a zesty devil dog topped with jalapeno cole slaw or a beef burger. Grilled cheese, grilled chicken, and a portobello “garden burger” all rate super hero sandwich status. Wings come two ways. Have them with Thai chili glaze or southern fried. Non-sandwich daily specials include tacos, stew,  gyros, and Friday-only dessert pies.

Late-Night Hours:

Note the unusual hours of operation: Knuckle Sandwiches is closed Sunday, Monday & Tuesday. It opens for lunch Wednesday, Thursday, & Friday. Prior to the pandemic, it stayed open until after midnight Wednesday through Saturday. Those hours likely will return.
