All that said, I dig the St. Pauls, but I wouldn't put any version on my list of "great" sandwiches.

I gotta go with you stiller, Primanti's is knocked by locals but is such a good sandwich it merits consideration anywhere, as well as the Roethlisburger, so both of those would be in my top 5. I'll round out the other three with (again, going to catch a lot of flak here, but...) Pat's in Philly for a steak, the White House Special in Atlantic City, and the Tony's Screamer in Girardville, PA which is technically a hamburger but generically a sandwich.

I love a reuben as well but that's a dozen threads in itself.

Personally I'm more into eating than ranking...Oh, and by God nothing beats a cold leftover meat loaf sandwich at 11:30 pm or past.

Wow!! This was fun and interesting!!

I tried to construct my list from memorable sandwich experiences, from places that are "known" as THE place (sometimes debatable) to go for such a sandwich. Places that many people say "Oh...if you are visiting this place you have to have this sandwich" because it is an experience that you might never forget. So, I decided on my most memorable "famous" sandwich experiences.

Cheesesteak at Pat's in Philly

Muffaletta at Central Grocery in New Orleans

Corned beef or Pastrami on rye at Katz Deli in NYC (in my neighborhood so I get to enjoy the experience more often)

Pulled pork sandwich at Corky's in Memphis

Beef on Weck from Charlie the Butcher in Buffalo

This is a tough question because I love sandwiches so I'll break it down into categories, not order.

1. Favorite Sub: Italian
2. Favorite Hot Sandwich: Cheese steak (preferably a philly or south jersey steak)
3. Favorite Deli Sandwich: A good tuna sandwich with cheese on a hard roll
4. Favorite Club Sandwich: Ham and Cheese
5. Favorite Breakfast Sandwich: Pork roll, Egg and Cheese with salt, pepper, and ketchup

There are many many more sandwiches that I enjoy, but in these situations these are usually what I go for.

I hate these surveys that they have on TV...similar to those that are posted on AOL. I dont know where they get the information but it always seems that they try to be sure they cover as much as the country as possible & everything gets "yuppified". When I hear "a new take on the traditional....." I turn the station, because what follows usually angers me & is B.S.
They really should have left their studio in NY and just drive to Harolds in Edison, NJ (maybe at White House in AC as well) to do the show...pick 5 from the menu then shut up & report the news.

Lobster Roll in California????......Please.

WM Ceaton I think most of us agree with you---the polls are phony, but
the lists made by Roadfooders are the real thing-------RFs are experts
so the poll is just a way to get RF's to express themselvs. Most RFs
are very shy and would never say anything without intense urging.
Honest, I kid you not. (Stole that from Jack Paar.)

Hey Pancho, how come you have duck breast laying around waiting to be turned
into a sam-itch. When (and it ain't often) I have duck I have a guest or two
and the duck breast is long gone after one go-round. And the rest of el duck
goes in round two. A clean knock out in the second round.

Never cooked beets al dente----even though I make pickled beets and harvard
beets quite often. What is the purpose ????

Hey Mariner Man...You BUY the duck breasts...for the sambich. Get 'em here for like $1.89 a pound. You only use like a 4 oz. portion. Beets al dente...not mushy and just a touch real on the tongue. Don't you just love beets? Try this....slice a few fresh ones thin...wrap in foil after applying some fresh chopped dill, lemon juice and a wad of butter. Throw it on with your grilled meat product for about 15 min. Memorable....

Yo Pancho this is Don Quixote ---took a day off from fighting wind mills-----I will
try your beetnik beet recipe---can't beat beets.

We used to grow our own and used the greens as a spinach substitute. Throw a little
cider vinegar on them and they aren't bad tasting and are full of what's good for ya !!!

My Mother made great pickeled beets, don't know whose recipe it was, but back then
every mom and grandmom had her own. They also look great on the plate. She learned
the Harvard Beet recipe while a chef for some very rich people on Park Ave.

My lovely Mary has a thing for beets, can you beat that ??????

When we were kids my Mom put up a lot of vegetables for the winter.
After a day of making a batch of pickled beets our hands were stained red and they
stayed that way until a new batch of skin got rid of it----soap was a waste of
time and lye.

Never saw duck breast on sale anywhere------I grew up right in the middle of
Long Island Duck country so you can't say anything bad about duck to me !!! The duck
farms are gone now, replaced by houses and roads and people who don't know from duck.

And teaching them ain't Duck Soup you know !!!!!!

We all seem to have a place which we'd nominate for "best sandwich place". While the breadth of types, fillings, styles etc is enormous, If we're talking roast beef, I'll still drive 3 hours from NH to go to Shieks in Torrington CT.

http://roadfood.com/Reviews/Overview.aspx?RefID=2092

Ask Michael noted in his review, yes I can go to kelly's or any number of other "legendary" places in the metro boston area (and yes I LOVE NY deli [tongue please on rye with mustard]), but i have yet to find anything that satisfies me quite like a hot roast beef sandwich or grinder from Shieks. I'll admit to going on saturdays and having a dog or 2 with mustard and kraut or mustard and hot relish (similar to Blackies in Cheshire) and THEN a hot roast beef sandwich. It's kind of like having your cake and eating it too ;)

For me it's perfection!

Where is the pesky wabbit---out in the garden eatin' my carrots ?

I love that sam-itch of yours---nothing like a beefsteak just
picked from your very own garden. As a kid I couldn't wait --
when that first one got red it was a great day---and then
within minutes you were inundated with ripe tomatoes. All at once--
Batta-boom !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
