I miss the Mystery Sandwich from Chiodo's in Pittsburgh. From the description published when Sam Chiodo died:
Chiodo's Mystery Sandwich
Cook hamburger patty. Top with thin slices of kolbassi and sauerkraut (see below). Heat through. Top with "mystery cheese" (a slice of provolone and a slice of American, with three pepperoni slices between) and "mystery sauce" (see below). Heat until melted.
Sauerkraut: Drain and rinse kraut. Add red and green pepper, garlic, sugar, oregano, red-pepper seeds and tomato sauce. Bake at 350 degrees for 1-1.5 hours, "depending on your crunch factor." Add seasonal vegetables to taste.
Mystery sauce: Mix tomato sauce or puree with tomato juice to make a "not-too-thick/not-too-thin" sauce. Add red-pepper seeds, sugar, oregano, garlic, pepper and "whatever floats your boat."
"There [are] no measurements," the recipe cautions. "That's what makes it a mystery every time."


However, it's very possible that the sandwich is undistinguished without the ambiance; I can't guarantee that I'd enjoy it in a restaurant without bras hanging from the ceiling.

    Learn to make your own "corned beef" for reuben or corn beef sandwiches.    .... You could make pastrami too.   Or, Italian beef for Italian beef with peppers & onions sub.

      all good suggestions, most are GROSS, but to each his own.
      if you want to do of the wall sandwichs;
      have a menu board of any & all ingredients you have available to make sandwichs with,at 1 price to simplify it.
       good luck with this one.
       
       
      on the other hand, just make a sandwich with a lot of meat, priced reasonably would work, I've seen it.
      you'll get more regular customers with this than from those  fru fru sandwichs.

        Tuna Fish on Soft Itallian Bread Crushed Red Pepper and Soft Butter (capers and cracked fresh black pepper) 
        Only way you are successful is if the Bread is Top Notch...Russ



        That actually sounds pretty darn good. Do you mix the capers and pepper in with the butter before you spread it or do you mix everything in with the tuna fish? Do you bother with mayo for the tuna fish? I'm going to be making this on the weekend and I'll probably be toasting the bread. 

        Ditto on the bread.... has to be the best you can get for the area.

          Sardine Sammie-
          Sardines, THIN sliced Sweet Onions, Vidalia preferred, & your choice of Crystal Hot Sauce or a Cocktail Sauce made with eye watering Horseradish, fresh Lemon Juice, Ketchup and Crystal Hot Sauce or Wasabi Paste mixed with Mayo on an EXCELLENT Bread of your choice, (I prefer a good Seeded Jewish Rye). The Secret is good quality ingredients!

            1) Take two large slices of pizza.  Cheese pizza gives you the most options, but others, like pepperoni, work well also.  Trim off the crusts and save.  On one slice top with meat of choice.  Dress with lettuce, tomato, onions (or not), pickles (or not), etc.  Top with second pizza slice.  Serve cold or warm after a couple of minutes in a panini press.  Serve with crusts as breadsticks with desired dipping sauce (ranch, BBQ, cheese, etc.)

            2) The Pizza Pup which I miss having ever since Fedco in Los Angeles went out of business.  Take a cheese pizza slice.  Trim off crust if too large.  Place a cooked hot dog at the wide end and roll up.  Secure with a toothpick and serve.

                Perhaps.  But when you think about it, pizza is nothing more than flatbread with cheese, tomato sauce (usually) and other stuff.  If one is willing to accept tomato sauce as their sandwich dressing then the pizza sandwich is nothing more than a meat sandwich with cheese, tomato sauce and condiments.  The Pizza Pup.  Yeah, can't argue there.  Nuthin' but fat and calories!!! (But it tastes SOOOO good!) :)

                  Triple-decker pizza stack (1 ham, 1 sausage, 1 pepperoni) layered with boneless buffalo chicken wings, topped with a ranch and buffalo sauce, sprinkled with bacon bits.  Served with a side of ranch dressing.

                    Now, to me, that looks perfectly dreadful and I cannot believe anyone would ever eat it.

                            Just enter the address into your browser.  If you notice, when you click on it, it adds "http://www.roadfood.com/Forums/" to the beginning of the address for some reason.

                              I think that is because the actual URL is:

                                  The Capers can go into the butter but the cracked pepper must go into the tuna. I think it is important that the pepper pieces are coarse ground so you actually bite into the pieces. I use mayo but lightly. With soft bread a wet tuna salad would sog out the bread. I would not toast the Itallian bread. Sour Dough or Rye toasts better. Soft Butter and Itallian bread go perfectly together. Hard Cold Butter, Hard Salami and Mustard also go together perfectly.IMO...Russ

                                    Vienna Sausage Salad Sammie---
                                    Very Finely chop up a can of RINSED OFF Original Vienna Sausages and add what ever other ingredients you would use to make, egg salad, tuna salad or ham salad. Also add a chopped up hard boiled egg. Serve on your favorite Bread or "Hawaiian Rolls" or those little soft dinner rolls used to make Sliders along with Lettuce & Tomato and some Mayo. Add a slice of Swiss Cheese if you like

                                            Triple-decker pizza stack (1 ham, 1 sausage, 1 pepperoni) layered with boneless buffalo chicken wings, topped with a ranch and buffalo sauce, sprinkled with bacon bits.  Served with a side of ranch dressing.

                                             
                                            I cant help it, but this sounds good to me.

                                                Your new sandwich shop, I can only hope that it will keep alive the noble Monte Cristo, served with a side cup of strawberry preserves. This was the staple of my sainted Mum and other ladies who lunch in the fifties and early sixties, and maybe even the forties.

                                                I make a meatloaf sand that seems to be popular. One inch slabs are sliced off a cold meatloaf, then fried crisp and brown in lard. Sourdough slices are brushed with garlic infused clarified butter, then flat-grilled with grated Parmesan or Romano. The sandwich is served with a choice of grilled or raw onion, as well as the usual lettuce and tomato for those who like that kind of stuff to ruin a perfectly good sandwich. Ketchup and marinara sauce are also offered.

                                                Another variation on the previous sandwich has split and flat-grilled hot Polish sausage from Farmer John in place of the meatloaf.

                                                Another favorite of mine is a grilled turkey, ham, Ortega chile and jack or cheddar cheese served on sourdough with raw or grilled onion.

                                                  An at home favourite of mine is turkey, ham and stuffing with cranberry sauce...I know a little Christmassy but I could eat those all the time!


                                                  There's a place in Las Vegas that's famous for the sub you describe - Capriottis.

                                                  Sounds horrible to me but to each his own!

                                                    When really good fresh tomatoes are not available---BLT with thick cut bacon.baby greens and fried green tomatoes on toasted Hawiian or Portugese bread or rolls and a dallop of mayo and a spread of pesto is AWESOME!!!


                                                    At home I use roasted red peppers when good tomatos are not available.

                                                      Some sandwiches sound delicious and will make it on the menu, while other...well, thank you for all the comments.

                                                      You're welcome, just remember not everyone likes a hot sandwich all the time. (Your first post has you grilling everything.) Also grilled peanut butter makes a HUGE MESS, so use a smaller amount than you would for a regular sandwich or grill the bread halfway ahead of time.



                                                      Noted.  Thank you very much!

                                                      Again, I want to thank everyone for their posts and sandwich ideas.  I AM referring to the "wish list" when designing my menu, keeping in mind that there is something for everyone, hot and cold and what's gross to one is gourmet to another.  Thank you!
