Latest MacTaggart's Market & Deli news and reviews

JM ate the ham & cheese.
Nichole ate the reuben.
The bill was about $15, or $7ish/person, plus tip.
JM gave MacTaggart's Market & Deli a B+; Nichole gave MacTaggart's Market & Deli an A- (see our grading rubric).

In the bowels of one of those student apartment buildings tucked in along fraternity row (where Lakelawn Pl. runs twixt Langdon and Lake Mendota) sits a wee convenience mart a la Corner Store. Tiny, and crammed full of campus essentials (ramen, red Solo cups, Bud Light, toothpaste), MacTaggarts also has a full service deli counter serving Boar's Head meats. It's like the lowest-rent Artamos possible, plus free popcorn.

MacTaggart's

Our sandwiches were, in fact, really good. They were prepared exactly to spec with fantastic ingredients.  There's no place to nosh inside unless you want to sit on undercleaned stairs, overlooking everything. 

Sandwiches

So if you find yourself seeking a campus/downtown sandwich, MacTaggart's is off the beaten path and will provide you with a far better story than Subway. Also, their sandwiches taste better than Subway's.
