Topping the list is Thanh Thanh Sandwiches. Located at 707 E. March Lane in Kentfield, the Vietnamese spot, which offers sandwiches, juices and smoothies, is the highest-rated cheap sandwich spot in Stockton, boasting 4.5 stars out of 272 reviews on Yelp. 

On the menu, look for sandwiches such as roast beef or steamed pork. Round out your meal with a watermelon smoothie or Thai iced tea.

Next up is Waterloo's Genova Bakery, situated at 749 N. Sierra Nevada St. With 4.5 stars out of 266 reviews on Yelp, the bakery and deli has proven to be a local favorite for those looking for a cheap option. 

We found this about the business's signature items: "Fresh baked bread, deli sandwiches, deli meats and cheeses, meat and cheese trays and Italian groceries," it writes on Yelp in the section explaining specialties.

3. Bigworm's Bakery & Deli

Fox Creek's Bigworm's Bakery & Deli, located at 8118 NW Lane, Suite 125, is another top choice, with Yelpers giving the inexpensive deli and bakery, which offers doughnuts and more, 4.5 stars out of 205 reviews. 

Chow down on the Wormanator — two beef patties, bacon, cheese, tomatoes, lettuce and grilled onions on two slices of buttermilk toast, topped with barbecue sauce, a house sauce and served with fries. 

Yelper Rodney B. wrote, "The quality, taste and presentation says it all. The USOMICH, wrapped in lettuce instead of the bun for low carb options was over the top. If you like Vietnamese sandwiches, this has all those flavors and more."

4. House of Shaw Espresso Cafe

House of Shaw Espresso Cafe, a spot to score coffee, tea, bagels and sandwiches in the University, is another much-loved, low-priced go-to, with 4.5 stars out of 151 Yelp reviews. Head over to 227 Dorris Place to see for yourself. 

On the menu, you'll find croissants, soups and salads, desserts, beer, wine and ice cream beverages. Traditional and specialty coffee and tea beverages include hot and iced espresso, cappuccinos, lattes, mochas and chai tea.

Yelper Dave M., who reviewed House of Shaw Espresso Cafe on May 28, wrote, "It has sandwiches, salads, coffees and teas which far exceed anything in Stockton. Definitely a must try."

Downtown, check out Louie's Market, which has earned 4.5 stars out of 108 reviews on Yelp. Dig in at the deli and meat shop by heading over to 734 E. Main St.

Established in 1966 as a meat market, this spot now serves hot dogs, ribeye steak sandwiches and pork chops. 

Jessalyn P. noted, "The Ribeye Steak Sandwich may very well be the culinary icon of America and it's what anchors the menu here. Located inside of a meat market in Downtown Stockton, this hidden gem is one of the best delis in town."
