The CL staff and I have unwrapped and tasted and drooled over the region’s 50 best ’wiches for our annual Food Issue — with a little help from you, our readers. So what are you waiting for? Y’all did half the work (that was a ridiculous amount of local sandwich suggestions, by the way). Start digging into what is one of our biggest Food Issues yet.


There’s nothing wrong with kickin’ it old-school.

Classics go veg

Familiar favorites made vegan-friendly, which is good news for your vegetarian friend, too.


Deli-style sandwich settings are the best kinds of sandwich settings.


Where the ultimate cut of beef makes itself at home.

Perfect combos

We’re not sure that these could get any more delicious.

Unlikely combos

Toppings, one protein and other unconventional accoutrements you gotta taste for yourself.

Sweet additions

Everything from chutney and spreads to slaw and sliced fruit.

Grilled cheese, please

Need we say more?


Whether you like it fried, grilled, diced or blackened, we got you.

Healthy... right?

OK, OK. They’re healthy-ish.
