Mr. Zub's Deli at the Matinee
812 W. Market St.
Akron, OH 44303
Mr. Zub’s is located in the Highland Square area of Akron. If you're not familiar with the area, it's an eclectic neighborhood somewhat similar to Coventry (Cleaveland Hts... Not the area south of Akron), but much smaller. The decor at Mr. Zubs is nothing special, but the sure sandwiches are. They're located near the Highland Theater, all of the sandwich names are inspired by movie characters (and the Zubs logo is a stick of movie popcorn butter). There's a wide variety to choose from- chicken, turkey, deli meats, and vegetarian.

The meat was lean but still had enough fat to give it some flavor, and the capicola and mustard added a nice spice.
My girlfriend chose the Ren McCormack- chicken shawarma on pita with garlic mayo, lettuce, tomato, onion and a pickle. The chicken shawarma was moist and nicely spiced, and it made for a nice sandwich. The only complaint was that the garlic mayo was too strong. It could have easily been cut in half with more mayo, or half as much could have been used. We love garlic, and except for being too strong, the mayo was good.
As for sides, they serve french fries, onion rings, cole slaw, chips...and tator tots! I love a good tot, and a fairly large basket of them arrived hot and crispy. (The Uncle Rico comes on a bagel with roast beef, tator tots, and onion and chive cream cheese)
I've been to Mr. Zubs several times, and I have yet to be disappointed. From the gyro to the deli sandwiches, everything has been good. Their menu of diverse and imaginative sandwiches is sure to have something for everyone. And if you're out on the town, its also a good place to satisfy your late night munchies. They're open until 3am every night (2 on Sundays), and the crowd gets more unique as the hours go on.
