After getting shafted by RFT not making their lunch location, I found myself by the LA River. I was about to stumble into Dune, but then remembered this thread and Wax Paper Co.
My friends, this is the $12 sandwich you've been looking for. The following picture is what I rec'ed upon opening the box. It is the glory of a Jersey Mike's italian, but with waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay higher quality ingredients. This utterly smashes the sandwich, godmother, godfather, san carlo, and any of the east coast style delis I've tried (ie Monte Carlo, Mario's). The only other sandwich I've had with equally high ingredients has been from Prime Pizza, but that sandwich was just too much flavor (the hardcore grain mustard really threw that one over the top).
This plus a bottle of hipster coke was $15.xx after tax. I found it amusing that the POS register defaulted to an 18% tip, on what is essentially a glorified take out window with outdoor seating.
And what the hell am I supposed to do with this lonely slice of pepper in vinegar?
