Don’t be alarmed by the name—the Naked Evader is simply a grilled pastrami sandwich with Swiss cheese, vegetables and mustard. But from the first bite, you’ll see why Johnny McGuire’s has been such a hit in Town Square in addition to its 20-year success story in Aspen, Colo. Perched over the bustling entryway to Rave Motion Pictures, the deli is perfect for a quick before or after-movie meal. Made-to-order cold and hot subs, homemade soups and a variety of expertly fried chips and fries make this shop one of the best in Vegas. Skinny $6.50, regular $7.50, fatty $12.50, in Town Square, 982-0002.
