Noble Pig Sandwiches

Gourmet sandwiches on grilled, fresh-baked bread? Unique flavor combinations like smoked-duck pastrami and crisp rye pickles, both made in-house? Are we in downtown Austin? Far from it: North 620 is the spot two young chefs have chosen to bring their fine-dining backgrounds. John and Brandon are determined to do it all: bake their own breads. Smoke their own bacon. Make their own pickles, mustards and dressings. Pictured above, the duck pastrami, with bacon, Russian dressing and rye pickles. Crunchy, smoky, creamy, it was heaven on a plate. Make that a paper-lined tray – they don’t have plates. Gotta put the money into the food!

The case holds sausages, sides and jars of pickles for sale. Next to it are loaves of fresh bread baked daily.

The Noble Pig Sandwich is another masterpiece of moist, tender pulled pork, thick slices of the house-smoked bacon and melted provolone. All sandwiches are served on grilled white or wheat, and come with chips. You can get sides like potato salad or jalapeno slaw, which of course the chefs make themselves.

The oysters in the fried-oyster sandwich were cooked perfectly, and teamed up with the house bacon and a flawless, tangy remoulade sauce. That’s hibiscus tea in the background, and they also carry Dublin Dr Pepper and Mexican Coke.

Located in a strip center, they’ve spruced up the place to be simple but cheery. They start serving breakfast at 6 am, and generally end lunch at 3 pm.

I stopped by on a whim last week. The staff was extremely cheerful and polite. I tried their signature sandwich, the Noble Pig, and was floored. I’ve been their 4 times since. Two satisfied thumbs up.

I was driving by the other day and saw the Noble Pig sign and was curious so I decided to stop by, I had the roasted tomato sandwich and added bacon to it. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The food was fantastic and he service was great! I love the vintage feel of the restaurant. I’ll definitely be going back frequently with friends! I’d highly recommend this place to anybody with an appetite for a great sandwich! DELICIOUS!

A co-worker told me about The Noble Pig and highly recommended the place, so I stopped by and had the Thai Chicken. It was fantastic! I’ll definitely be coming back for more!

The sides are better than the sandwiches. The prices are high for the sandwiches which are not that “stuffed.” We were disappointed in the oyster po-boy. Not really a po-boy at all as it is served on regular sliced bread. We were expecting more of a taste and presentation of a New Orleans po-boy. The name “po-boy” needs to be changed. My husband did like the duck pastrami sandwich. Again, the price was out of proportion for what was served. Glad we tried them however.

Noble Pig sandwich was disapointing – sauce/dressing was bland, bacon was limp, and what “pulled pork” ??? I opened the sandwich and there was noting “pulled” on the bread. Lacked flavor profile. . . Best part was the pickle relish.

I tend to agree somewhat with Sophia. I have been working my way through the menu and the only two sandwiches that stand out are the Noble Pig and the Duck Pastrami. The rest tend to lack flavor. I think they should try to amp up the flavor significantly on the Catfish and the Thai Chicken. The Italian Sausage was decent but still could be punched up a bit. I really like the potential for this place and price should not be a consideration as long as the food is truly exceptional and unique.

Just tried this place and it is phenomenal. Prices are reasonable, we really don’t need to be “stuffed” all the time.
