History: Since 2010 the Noble Pig has been feeding Austin -- the fastest-growing city in the US -- a mouthwatering lineup of gourmet sandwiches baked in-house and topped with homemade condiments. The Noble Pig has a cozy, welcoming interior, dark wood benches and a simple, clean-cut décor. The sandwiches arrive one-by-one on cafeteria-like trays covered with brown wax paper, accompanied by fresh pickles and ruffled chips.
