    Thanks kozel, I thouroughly enjoyed that post. I have in the past during my travels eaten a few of these. I grew up with the I talian beef, had grinders and subs all over new England and even though they aren't mentioned I have consumed quite a few cheesesteaks. Can't get a decent muffaletta here in Austin though.

      Great list, not just some summary of stuff everybody has already seen on television fifty times already. Some of these are only in a few neighborhoods, the cheesesteak or muffaletta have giant footprints compared to the Egg Foo Yung of Minnesota Sandwich.

        That's "St. Paul," not "Minnesota" sandwich.  It's available in St. Louis, MO, and environs, though as a child I remember the now-defunct Jong Mea Chinese-American restaurant in Indianapolis served an egg foo young (that's how they spelled it) sandwich at lunchtime.
         
        I've never seen it in the Twin Cities of Minnesota.

          Interesting that they attributed the breaded pork tenderloin sandwich to Indiana. Actually it is very strong all around Indiana, out state Illinois, all of Iowa and quite a bit of Missouri. After that it dies out rather quickly. They mentioned Nick's Kitchen, Plump's Last Shot and the Aristocrat as examples. Guess what? I was at Nick's Kitchen Tuesday and the Aristocrat last night.

            Davydd:  That does not surprise me.  Those things are like a magnet for you.  It seems to me that you have visited any place worth visiting over the years.

              Davydd: Has the Aristocrat reopened after their fire?  I love that place.  Especially on Saturday nights when Hogeye Navvy performs!

                  I'm halfway between beef on weck and spiedie country, which is perfectly fine with me! We make our own spiedies in the summer, and I can get a good beef on weck at a few places. Love it all.

                      The Chicago entry for Italian beef needs a footnote about the beef-and-sausage combo.

                            From what I can tell it may have reopened last December. There was a review on it in the Indianapolis Star.

                              I was also looking for the Polish Boys, which certainly should have been on the list.  And have you ever heard of a Primanti's sandwich called a French fry sandwich?  That is a new one on me.
                               
                              Still, that is just quibbling.  This is one of the best lists of these kind that I have seen.  Really well done with beautiful photos.

                                          I saw it, and immediately decided that next time to heck with the ham barbeque, I'm having that. By the way, we went to Bert's Wooden Angel with lleechef's mother for Mothers Day. Great place. Great service. Really great wines. Oh, and the food's awfully good, too.

                                            I do love regional sandwiches. One they forgot, also from Fall River MA, is the hot cheese sandwich. A gob of melted sharp cheddar, coney sauce, onions and yellow mustard on a bun. i learned about it here on RF, and it is absolutely addicting

                                              I would have loved to see Fiore's on the list...especially with "American Bread" in the title...but I think NJ had 3 of 41 sandwiches on the list already.

                                                I think Davydd is probably melting (or exploding) right now, because I looked at the website for Victoria House, one of the restaurants recommended for a walleye sandwich and couldn't help noticing the "menu items  that don't exist" such as the Swedish Meatball and Tater Tot Hotdish lunch specials...

                                                  This weekend is the Pt. Clinton Walleye Festival!  We may go up there tomorrow or Sunday to get a walleye sandwich at Jolly Rodger, reviewed here on Roadfood by buffetbuster.
                                                  And yes, I too saw Bert's Wooden Indian on that list!  I never had the hot roast beef sandwich as I always get either the ham BBQ or the haddock sandwich.  Our Mother's Day dinner at the Wooden Angel was truly outstanding.  I started with lobster bisque that was loaded with big chunks of lobster and my entrĂ©e was their famous rack of lamb.  Best dining in Beaver County!

                                                    Port Clinton is one of my favorite towns on the Lake Michigan.  I have stopped there many times over the years after spending many months in Cleveland opening our business there.  Thanks to Michael, I have enjoyed the fish at Jolly Roger several times.  A very scenic area and worth the drive, dining and fish.

                                                      I didn't know Swedish meatballs and tater tots were regional sandwiches.   Those are weekly specials that aren't even on their regular menu which includes sea scallops and clams which I am sure came right out of Steiger Lake across the street.
                                                       
                                                      Victoria House is a nearby restaurant. I've walked to it since it is on a regional bike trail that runs near my house. On their regular menu they have both fried chicken and pork tenderloin medallions. So knowing they have the capability I special requested and had them make me a deep-fried breaded pork tenderloin sandwich. They sometimes have that as a weekly special now.
                                                       
                                                      They serve a wicked good hamburger in their House Burger.

                                                        Actually, I think a Swedish Meatball and Tater Tot Sandwich (perhaps on lefse or Swedish Limpa Bread would be quite tasty!) 
                                                        Even Tavern on Grand has Hotdish on their menu

                                                          WJ:  We had three locations in the Twin Cities and one in St. Paul was very close to the Tavern on Grand.  I have been there many times and it seems that I always had walleye served many different ways.  Double outstanding for me.
