    Sprouts Farmers Market

    Kingsgate Center, 8201 Quaker Ave (806) 794-4900

    For just under $4 you can get a made-to-order sandwich. Just think about how good a ham sandwich with lettuce, tomato, honey mustard and a spicy horseradish sauce on a honey wheat bun sounds.

    Potbelly Sandwich Shop

    Another toasty sandwich option here in the Hub City, Potbelly offers several sub standbys, plus a specialty sandwich called "A Wreck." It's not a reference to Texas Tech's motto "wreck 'em," but it's still a solid choice and rings up at under $5.

    Schlotzsky's

    5204 Slide Road (806) 793-1233

    Whether you're craving soup or a sandwich, Schlotzsky's has plenty to choose from on its massive menu. Many of their sandwiches do cost a little bit more ($5+), so weigh your wallet before you drive down.
