REVIEW: The Happy Belly Deli – Clinton

The Happy Belly Deli is not only fun to say but it is also a delightful, little sandwich shop in Clinton, NC. I was in town to do a little work a few months ago and asked a local banker at the Wells Fargo for some advice on a good local place to eat. Normally, the recommendations that I receive tend to point me towards the less-than-healthy places serving cheeseburgers, cheese steaks, fried chicken and lots of other deliciousness. He did recommend one place that I was both less-than-healthy that I checked out first that was serving “the best fried chicken in the area” but it was cash-only and I didn’t have enough time to run back to the ATM at the bank that I had just left. I am going to try that place next time I am back in Clinton.

I ordered the Italian Club which comes with ham Genoa salami, capicola, provolone, cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion, oil, vinegar, salt, pepper and oregano on white bread. I saw their sun-dried tomato roll and decided to make a switch over to that for an additional flavor explosion.  The sandwich was very refreshing. The bread was freshly baked and incredibly soft. The meats were piled on and the lettuce and tomato were on point. It was one of the better sandwiches that I’ve had in the last few months. I recommend that you stop in and check it out if you are in the area and looking for a laid back, casually delicious lunch.

    Hey, I’ve eaten there before! Their food is super yummy. I’m always looking for low-fat, relatively healthy meals for my daughter and I, and this is definitely a great spot to get all that. That sandwich looks delish. Looks like I’m going to have to try to recreate this meal in my kitchen.
