For those of you in Texas, Kroger started a new Panini sandwich program & the Cuban Panini & the Reuben Panini are really a big suprise for a grocery store. I will put the Reuben up agaisnt almost any other Reuben. They are also made with Boar's Head Meats & when you buy 6, your 7th one is free. A whole sandwich runs $4.99 & there is almost a 1/2 poung of meat!
The worst sandwich by far is an Antoines Po Boy. The bread & chow chow are fine but the filling is definatly the cheapest quality to be had. Sometimes, they're off temperature.

All time favorite, as others have said, A summer tomato sandwich, using fresh homegrown beefsteak tomatos on grilled beefsteak rye, dapple of miracle whip and chewy bacon, a little salt and some Old bay seasoning.

Next best, Chicken Salad sandwich on rye w/ tomato from Lenny's Deli, downtown Baltimore (or Pikesville).

Sounds great, BUT it has to be a Rutgers Jersey Beefsteak with real mayo!! None of that miracle Whip crap, otherwise I'm with you 100% PS. I will bring the clams.

fastfood does seem to have a onetrack mind, that being said, the unmentionable fastfood establishments roastbeef deli sandwich while mayhap a far cry from a NY style deli sandwich is a good alternative to the regular ff purchase especially on a hot and humid day.

Roast pork sandwich at Tony Luke's in Philadelphia - transcendent!

Cheesesteak at Captain Gus in Lancaster, PA (read that again!) - far superior to all those Philadelphia pretenders

Tomato, mozzarella, and basil on ciabatta at the Cascade Cafe Espresso Bar, National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC (also the home of the best gelato outside Italy!)

Oyster po'boy (dressed) at Mother's in New Orleans

Pork BBQ sandwich at Corky's in Memphis

Lobster roll at Abbott's in Noank, CT

Worst (by far) - the mustard sandwiches on white bread favored by my childhood friend Mitch

I love sandwiches, so it's hard to think of my favorite. There's too many possibilities. But here's some:

A slightly runny over easy egg, some good melted cheese, on toast.

Wally's roast beef sandwich (Bloomington, MN)

A paneer or chicken curry folded into a paratha bread.

Fresh mozzarella, baked tomatoes on french bread

My husband likes making spaghetti sandwiches with leftover spaghetti and sauce in a folded over piece of bread.

I could go on and on and on . . . but I'm getting hungry.

Worst: Some kind of chicken parmesan sandwich at Boston Market a few years ago. An icky sweet parmesan sauce and a piece of chicken so full of gristle it made me gag.

Tonite's supper will be Toasted BLT's using our own lettuce and tomatoes and some good bacon. Two or three of these gems should make the Mayor a happy gardener. Mrs Mayor makes a great sandwich.

It was a toss up as to where I was going to post this. It was either under the BLT topic, Tomato Sandwich Topic or here. I choose here because right now the best sandwich we've had (this week, at least) is sliced tomatoes on bacon black pepper bread that I baked at home. Lots of crispy hickory smoked bacon (didn't want sweet applewood bacon to compete with the sweet tomatoes) in the bread dough with a generous amount of coarsely ground telicherry peppercorns. Really good homemade mayonnaise. We sprinkled the tomatoes with sea salt, toasted the bread which really brought out the flavor of the bacon and used locally grown lettuce. Which we won't see for awhile because now it's very hot. Peach Iced Tea and Zapps completed the meal. It was so good....

Very well put Mr Jackson,this forum is not about fast food but regional tastes in good food. I have learned a lot from this forum and absolutly despise the obvious agenda that"fast food" has displayed on Road Food. Let's find this guy and beat him up!!! Ya with me, Rat

I'll take a poke in the eye before I take a kick in the stones, but it doesn't mean that I WANT either one!

OK Guys, We dumped one thread (steakwraps) cuz it had nothing but the advertising and the gripes about it... This thread has some good content.Lets drop both the ads and the crap about them and get back on topic. I will delete the entries that just advertise and those that attack the ads, and we can get on with business, ok?

Thanks, Al. You always get things back on track. Guess that comes from the railroader in you.

You can bring the clams here anytime---i got Hellmans--i got great bread--i got fresh made cheese and i got 3 hierloom varieties of tomatos---pre beefsteak but FULL of flavor--maybe even a "chiffonade" or fresh basil!!and a marvelous local slab bacon! When homegrown tomaters are in its really unfair to campare ANT other sandwhich to a BLT made with them!!

I got one for you all:

Boneless sardines from a can packed in olive oil spread on good toasted rye bread and covered with ripe tomato and cuke slices, plus a sprinkling of cracked pepper.

Quite tasty!

My favorite sandwich right now is a breafast panini at Delphina"s Bakery in Portland, Oregon. Cheese, tomato and avocado on a baguette. Yum. Worst sandwich was vegemite spread .

I just had a sandwich of (yup, yup) Miracle Whip on Grant's Farm oatnut bread of Underwood's Chicken spread.

Is that considered gross? I like that stuff, although I don't think it really tastes like chicken per se.

Well, I'd say that oatnut bread has to be gross. And I know for a fact that Miracle Whip is gross. I've never had the Underwood's chicken, so I can't say about that. I do like the Underwood's deviled ham, though.

I agree that the Miracle Whip is wrong but the Underwood products are OK, especially the Deviled Roast Beef. Great on thin flat bread.

Yeah, Dump the Miracle Whip and replace it with Marshmellow Fluff...at least 1/2 inch thick.
No, No peanut butter or tinned meat products Just the Fluff.
Now that's a treat!

Well, I also like the same combination of bread and MW, but with either cold Spam or cold tongue.

I have rather plebian tastes.

My current favorite sandwich is grilled, marinated (olive oil & balsamic vinegar), portabello mushrooms with fresh mozzarella and roasted pepper on basil focaccia. My all time least favorite is grilled blue cheese on any kind of bread. pb

Anyone in North Jersey remember the Kresge's 5&10? They sold prefab subs, with baloney, ham, lettuce, tomato, onion. Wrapped in plastic wrap, in a big bin, $.99 as I recall. To me ... they were great. They sat there long enough to marinate but not long enough to make you sick. And, cheap. I had seven once.
