No Fuss Deli-ciousness
Sandwiched, so to speak, in a nondescript strip mall, Goodcents Deli Fresh Subs is churning out some of the most delectable handheld creations in the area. And it takes but one bite to understand why.
If you like your bread soft, fresh, and filled with delicious fresh-cut meats, cheeses, and vegetables, you need look no further than south Tulsa’s Goodcents Deli Fresh Subs. The casual deli-style sandwich shop is ready to set you up with a tasty sub made fresh when you order.
Owner Jason Mims says it was that commitment to freshness that made him choose Goodcents. His location has been open for three years, serving up subs, pasta, soups, and cookies.
One of the first things you’ll notice when you order your sub is the lack of sandwich meats sitting out on the deli counter. Instead, the person making your sandwich pulls out a whole ham or roast beef and slices it right there in front of you. “It ensures the freshest product,” says Mims. “Pre-sliced is not as fresh, and it dries out. It’s the difference between Oscar Mayer that you buy at the store and meat cut for you at the deli counter. Besides, the preservatives they add to keep it looking fresh can interfere with taste, and a lot of people try to avoid them.”
Once you get the sub, you will immediately notice the pillow-soft bread. Like all their ingredients, the bread is made fresh. “We bake the bread a minimum of two times a day, sometimes more,” he says. “It keeps the bread soft.” Even the wheat bread is fantastically soft, which might surprise you if you’re used to coarse, dry, firm wheat bread.
Goodcents subs come in 6, 8, 12 or 16 inches, though the 8 inch is what Mims considers the standard size. The 16 inch is a great choice for sharing, or for when you’re extra hungry.
Once you choose white or wheat, you’re faced with another choice: toasted or untoasted. The toasted menu includes buffalo chicken, chicken bacon ranch, chipotle cheesesteak with chicken or steak, or meatball. The chipotle cheesesteak is a unique take on the classic cheesesteak, with fresh onion and pepper rather than grilled. The fresh veggies give this sandwich an unexpected flavor and texture, while the pepper jack cheese and spicy ranch give it a jolt of heat that will tingle your taste buds. The toasted bread adds another dimension of texture and crunch.
The cold sandwiches include the penny club, the original club, and the tasty Italian, among many other choices, all served on that tasty soft bread. The Italian is filled with capocollo, pepperoni, and salami. The flavors of Italy work together in perfect old-world harmony. The Goodcents original, made with ham, bologna, salami, and pepperoni is Goodcents’ take on a classic deli sandwich.
You can top your sandwich with American, cheddar, mozzarella, pepper jack, provolone, or Swiss cheese. Get the provolone on your Italian, as the flavor blends nicely with the meats.
Mims recommends Goodcents’ “standard dress” for every sandwich. “It’s the Goodcents flavor profile,” he says. Standard Dress is tomato, lettuce, and onion, seasoned with oregano, a sprinkle of salt and pepper, and topped with oil and vinegar. Take Mims’ advice on this one. He knows sandwiches, and the Standard Dress suits every sandwich, but you can pick and choose which toppings you prefer. You can also add toppings like cucumbers, banana peppers, black olives, pickles, and more. You can finish your sandwich with a choice of mayo, mustard, spicy mustard, Ranch, spicy ranch, or honey mustard. Your flavor combinations are nearly unlimited.
You can be confident that the array of sandwich toppings is all as fresh as possible. “The veggies are sliced that day,” says Mims. “I try to run out of everything and start over daily.”
Besides sandwiches, Goodcents offers several hearty and filling pasta dishes. Each is served with a side of freshly baked garlic bread. Pick from chicken parmesan, pasta with meatballs, pasta with Alfredo sauce, or chicken Alfredo. The chicken Alfredo is topped generously with white meat chicken, covered with creamy and flavorful Alfredo, sprinkled with cheese and nicely toasted before serving. It’s a great lunch choice for a cold day or just anytime you’re in the mood for comfort food.
Speaking of comfort food, don’t overlook the soups. Goodcents serves soup by the cup or the bowl. Their tasty broccoli cheddar is available daily, with a rotating selection of soups of the day.
Finish off your meal with a tasty, baked-fresh-that-day chocolate chip, double chocolate chip or peanut butter cookie.
To make your sandwich or pasta into a meal, tell them to make it a combo, and Goodcents will add a drink plus your choice of chips, soup, or a cookie.
If you live within 3 miles of the Goodcents location, you don’t even have to put on shoes to get your hands on one of those sandwiches. Goodcents will bring it to you. “We can deliver anything on the menu. It’s a $2 charge, and no minimum,” Mims says. “I’ll bring you a cookie, if that’s what you want.” If you order something hot, they’ll bring it to you in an insulated bag to make sure it stays warms.
If you need to feed people at an upcoming event, consider giving Goodcents a call for catering. They can set you up with a sub tray of delicious fresh-made subs, as well as napkins, plates, and utensils. You also get a pasta pan with any of Goodcents’ pastas, served up with freshly baked garlic bread, or a tray full of cookies. Goodcents’ catering can also deliver box lunches with an 8-inch sub, chips and/or a cookie.
“We do all kinds of events,” Mims says. “Office meetings, church events, schools. We can work with any budget to give a quality product to your event.”
Fresh and tasty, with tons of healthy options, Goodcents is always a great choice for lunch, dinner, or your next catered event.
