The best sandwiches in San Antonio between planes and trains!

The Brown Bag Sandwich Shop is a unique hole-in-the-wall Mom & Pop sandwich shop located in San Antonio, Texas. The legendary lunch spot has been serving the Community since 1985, maintaining the first original recipes it was founded on; the same recipes that led Brown Bag to be known today as the BEST sandwich shop in San Antonio.

Brown Bag Sandwich Shop is located right by the San Antonio International Airport, next to the Train Museum and the North East School District. This unique spot allows customers to come in and watch the airplanes and trains go by while enjoying incredible fresh food.
For 36 years, Brown Bag has served delicious sandwiches, always prepared with high-quality ingredients and a never-ending variety of bread and cheeses. Chicken Salad and Pimento Cheese Sandwiches, Italian Subs, Club Pita Sandwiches, Charlotte’s Meatloaf Sandwiches… and the list goes on and on. The tricky part is deciding which one to try first!

Taste the famous BLT -Bacon, Lettuce, and Tomato Sandwich- or the house special TAS Sandwich, with Turkey, Avocado, and Sprouts. And if you’re a classic sandwich fan, then Brown Bag’s Homemade Egg Salad Sandwich and the Tuna Salad Sandwich are perfect for you!

Hot Subs are also a must. From Philly Cheesesteak to the Reuben Sandwich (specially made for Pastrami lovers) or the local favorite Southwest Turkey Melt, Brown Bag has it all! You can also come by the shop and delight yourself with our homemade Soups. Try our Soup of the Day; there is always a different seasonally inspired flavor, prepared with the freshest local ingredients.

But wait, it doesn’t end there. Brown Bag’s Desserts are a highlight for all the sweet tooths out there. Taste OG’s favorite Bread Pudding, made with fresh local bread and Homemade Rum Sauce, or treat yourself with a perfect Chocolate Chips Cookie.
