The best sandwich in every state

The Daily Meal Logo By Dan Myers of The Daily Meal | Slide 1 of 52: Making a sandwich is easy. You take a couple spices of bread, slap something in between them, and call it lunch. But making a truly great sandwich, one where the bread, fillings, and condiments all work in perfect harmony, is no small feat. The sandwich is one of the most versatile and far-reaching types of food in existence. For all intents and purposes, as long as it’s between two slices of bread or between two halves of a roll, you can call it a sandwich (so, yes, that does mean hamburgers and hot dogs are sandwiches, but they're earned their own lists). In order to assemble our list, we went state by state, city by city, scrolling through review sites and local news publications to learn which sandwich shops, and individual sandwiches in particular, are the most beloved. Some are iconic; some are obscure. Some are complex creations of chefs that can only be described as mad scientists. Some are world-famous “originals” that are still widely agreed upon as the absolute best. Some are flawless interpretations of classic regional specialties. Some are simple and no frills. But no matter their differences, they’re all delicious, and they prove that no matter where you travel in America, a great sandwich isn’t too far away.
