alright gentlemen.....time to lay it on the line. what kind of sandwich is the best sandwich? Cheese steak?...Reuben?...BBQ?...BLT?

list your favorite sandwich and preferred way of having it fixed. Cheese steak with provolone or cheddar for example. any guy who lists monte cristo sandwiches though needs to turn his man card in at the door.

Down around the Tampa area, they have a sandwich called the Cuban.

I'm not sure what is in it, but it's awesome.

cubans are good...roast pork, ham, mustard, pickle...but what makes a cuban is the bread

a lot of sandwich shops in Ybor City makes good cubans, my personal favorite is The Silver Ring Cafe on 7th Av

MMMMMMM!!! CUBANS!!!!

A spicy italian from a little deli here: Cappiocola(?) Homemade pepperoni, Proscuitto(?) sliced mozerrela and provolone with a light marina sauce. Killer!

As for BBQ: Carolina pork sandwich: Pulled Pork, lot's a sauce and cole slaw (garlic coleslaw-even better!)

Being from the midwest, ours is a tomato/brown sugar base, minimal vinegar and it still melds well with the whole pork sandwich theme. Not that there's anything wrong with the Carolina style, but I prefer a local place "Hog Wild Pit BBQ" Dont be late, they close at 8:00!

Not necessarily a sandwich...but for a damned good burger in Dallas go the Twisted Root Burger Company...most excellent!
Twisted Root Burger Co. / 2615 Commerce St. / Dallas, TX / 214.741.ROOT (7668) (http://www.twistedrootburgerco.com/)

And don't forget to try the Chocolate Shake or Homemade Rootbeer Float!

Never been there. I used to get my Poboys from Salvos when I lived on the Westbank, but haven't eaten there since Katrina. Deanies (in Bucktown) used to have pretty good poboys as well, as did the other resteraunt just up the street(toward the lake, can't remember the name of it). I haven't eaten at those places in years and really do miss the good food.

Here are a couple of homemades.

1. Fry a burger, dress it up with a little ketchup, fresh spinach, and brie cheese.

2. Toast a bagel. Add a little cream cheese, a little lox, a thin slice of tomato, and a thin slice of onion.

Deanies is good. I'm not too familliar with places on the West Bank, since I live Uptown and don't get over that way too much, all I really know there is the Dry Dock on Algiers Point by the ferry landing. Only lived here 5 1/2 years so I'm still eating my way through the city :). Mother's is OK, but way overrated for the price and time you spend waiting in line with all the tourists just to get in the darn door.

Big giant hamburger, with tons of cheddar cheese, bacon, and about half a gallon of bbq sauce.

Deli sandwiches? Normally, roast beef with spicy mustard, american cheese, on rye. In New York City? Pastrami on rye with spicy mustard.

Hard to beat a good Cuban sandwich for sure!

I'm a big fan of the Schlotzsky's Texas Special... Basically a hot ham & cheese with jalapeņos, lettuce , tom's, on jalapeņo/cheese bread..... I usually add a little Louisiana hot sauce too...

For a diving related sandwich, try a lobster rueben. We found this place (http://www.keysfisheries.com/restaurant.html) on Marathon in the Keys. They have a lobster rueben big enough for 2 people. Now it's a must place to eat whenever we go to the keys. And I'm not a huge rueben fan, but I love this sandwich. Maybe it's because the only time I can have 1 is when I go to the keys.

I haven't tried to make one. Mainly it's just to much trouble to get fresh lobster, then turn it into a sandwich.

I wasn't joking about those sandwiches. I found out about the burger because I was trying to make something out of stuff that I had laying around. Seriously, the homemade burger with brie and fresh spinach is AWESOME. You cannot stand up and eat it. It tastes so good that it interferes with your motor skills.

My Mom makes these for her girl friends with stuff she has laying around the house. Hope it helps.:smiley2:

Cucumber Slices (for Garnish)
Parsleys Sprigs (for Garnish)
1 lb. wheat bread
A few tablespoons mayonnaise
1 small onions - grated
12 oz. softened cream cheeses
2 medium cucumbers - peeled, seeded, and grated


Step 1.1
Combine the cucumbers and cream cheese (http://www.ehow.com/how_2732_make-cucumber-cream.html#), then blend in the onion.
Step 2.2
Add in a tablespoon or two of mayonnaise and blend until the mixture is soft and spreadable. Add a little more mayonnaise to soften further.
Step 3.3
Cut the crusts off the bread, then either cut each piece into fourths or cut into diamonds.
Step 4.4
Spread mixture over half the bread pieces, then top with another piece of bread.
Step 5.5
Garnish with parsley or cucumber.

If we're going to talk burgers, theres a local place that does ala cart burgers. You get your base 1/2 pound burger, then add your choice(s):

Sauteed onions, sauteed pepers, chili, bacon, jalapenos, chipolte's, slaw, 5 different cheeses, onion rings, fries, lettuce, tomato, onion, sprouts, pickles. I think I hit them all.

Used to be, if you could do a double with all of the above, you ate free. :)

Nice looking scooter though.

I always wanted an FLH. (What model is that? Classic?) Now that I can afford one I am living with a teenaged girl who takes up alot of my time. (my daughter you animals)

I did rebuild a 57 Pan with my bro when I was in high school though. Have owned 2 Sporties and a Super Glide (actually Low Rider). Also had a 125 Rapido :smiley36:.

Like the cage driver tells Michael Parks in Then Came Bronson, "Man, I wish I was you." Another couple years I'll have my knees back in the breeze.

It's a 2000 Roadking. It was purchased at a police auction (the best way to purchase a Roadking in my opinion). They take pretty good care of them, used one year on the freeway, regular maintenance, and you can usually get them for around 10K to 13K. Put around 2K into paint and chrome, voila; you end up with a Roadking like mine. I got 14K in mine and it has been running trouble free. It's a 1400cc, fuel injected, and runs like a scalded dog. Hell, I got a 1200 Sportster custom also, but I had to give the dealership 12k for it! :smiley29:

provolone cheese.
lettuce
(i used to miss class to go there before the rush)

Is it possible to just rub that mixture in to your chest to guarantee a coronary?:smiley36:
Sounds groovy.

hearts skip beats as you walk in the door. and yes... that mix on your chest will give you the coronary... but it tastes better if eaten.
it's delicious!! im going there tomorrow for sure... cause my mouth is watering right now!!

If you are ever in Brazil, try a Bauru.

(Sandwich)

bauru is good... but i preffer pastel de bauru.

there is a little strip in Ubatuba (beach town in brasil.) Silvios... a small kart, thats just a grill with like 6 plastic chairs in front of it.
i wish i had a picture... cause you will not believe me.
and they have a sandwich called a X-Tudao (cheese everything... like cheese burger... but cheese everything.)
its pretttttyyyy BIG... and cheap... like 8 bux (usd)
here is the list...
-Burger Bun
-Cheese (2 types)
-Burger patty
-Chicken
-Sausage (like bbq sausage... not hot dog)
-ham
-letuce
-onion
-mashed potatoes
-onion
-mayo
-ketchup
-corn
and im sure im missing at least 4-5 things that are in there...
one of those is good for at least 2 regular size people...
and yes... ate one alone...

I'm sorry, but I can only stand by quietly for so long. I keep hearing people say that franchises like Arby's, Schlotsky's, and now Firehouse Subs have the best sandwiches. That is like saying that Domino's makes the best pizza. People, people. Live a little. There is no way that any of these places compare to the REAL thing. Now go forth and find a real deli, or sandwich shop. Live damn it, Live.

Plus if you can get it anywhere, then it's just not special by definition. Give me the "One of a Kind" place anyday.

Now I like Firehouse sandwiches for what they are, but they don't hold a candle to the Lobster rueben I mentioned earlier. And I didn't even mention the best place to get a grouper sandwich. Partly because I don't remember the name of the place (but I know how to get there), and as good as it was, it wasn't "THE BEST" sandwich.

Quote from Firehouse Website:
" Our New York Steamer Sub was inspired by New York's Best Delis"

Ergo, a copy at best. You can almost guarantee that when you have something called a New York Style Pizza, Chicago Hot Dog, Philly Cheese Steak, Texas barbecue, etc., it is never as good as the original.

Fla has a deli called Too Jays, that's not bad, but still not great.

I do think going somewhere local and/or new is better, but I can also understand wanting to be able to go to a place where you know exactly what you're going to get. Sometimes you just want to eat something without taking a chance (though you never know what kind of cook you're going to get a chain for that matter). :)

Since we moved to Tampa, we've been looking for good Indian and Thai places and keep having bad experiences, so we're starting to get weary of trying local places and just waiting till we go to St.Louis again this Summer. :smiley36:

We've got a couple here in Plano...my wife likes them, but I just think they're so-so. Maybe it's because they steam their meat. I either it like it cold, or I like it toasted (e.g. quizno's).

In New Orleans:

A toasted Muffaletta from DiMartino's. The ones from Serio's have the best olive salad, but they're not toasted. What are they thinking?

A Media Noche from Liborio. Sadly, they can't find the bread anymore since the storm. Ham, cheese, pickles pressed into Midnight bread...

New York:

A real ruben from a real deli, not a tourist trap. Wrapped in butcher paper and 5" thick

Florida - Grilled Grouper sandwich eaten in view of the water from whence the fish came. Light mayo and Tomato... Dewey's in Destin comes to mind.

Isola di Capri, Italy. In Anacapri, a small butcher shop's owner made us a Prosciutto, Buffalo Mozzarella, and Local Tomato Salad on crispy italian bread. My mouth waters just thinking about it. Ate it looking out over the blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea.

OK. Another one of my faves..substitute turkey and bacon for the corned beef. Serve on rye. Cooky's Deli on Long Island used to make the best. Too Jays will make you one in SoFla, but you need to ask for it. Turkey and bacon with a shmear of chopped liver. Russian and slaw on the side.

This is a tough topic, because it is all based on where one has been. If the quesion is which TYPE of sandwich is best, then it is tough. To tell the truth, I think that some of the best sandwiches are made at home, if you know what to do. Great paninis, fresh ingredients. If I had to choose my most memorable sandwich, I guess my favorite would be:

BBW Oyster Po Boy at Redfish Grill, in New Orleans. I'm from New York, but I don't think I've had much better food than in New Orleans. This is a GREAT sandwich. Not a typical Po Boy, as the Oysters are flash fried, and not cornmeal crusted. Try one. Real good.

Also love Cheesesteaks, Paninis on country bread with Pesto, buffalo Moz, confit tomatoes, cubans, amongst many others.

Gouda & proscuitto panini sandwich:

Brush both sides of the slices of bread with olive oil or butter. Assemble the sandwich layers as follows: prepared bread, smoked gouda, prosciutto, onions, tomato, fontina, and bread. Place in a panini press (or in a heated grill pan or saute pan pressed with another heavy pan) and cook until crisp and golden. Serve immediately.

You can substitute proscuitto by sopressata and/or mortadella (slice very thin but put a load) and brie cheese...

I was told today that the BBQ beef brisket sandwich I made was better than that of a much more expensive restaurant that a friend went to yesterday. So, IMO that is the best sandwich I know of and I can make them at home. It takes a long time to do it though, BBQ is very long in the making if you do it right. Well worth it and better than most places I've eaten BBQ at.

I am defending my man card and the Monte Cristo! The monte cristos I've had were awesome! Meat, cheese, dressing on french toast. What's more manly than making a sandwich, and saying, you know what would rock? Dipping the bread in eggs and FRYING it before completing this bad boy. I know that some may balk at the sweet addition of maple, but I see nothing wrong with sweet. Doughnuts are sweet. Homer Simpson isn't less manly because he eats doughnuts, is he?

I'm a big guy and rarely would I consider a sandwich a meal...its just a snack usually...however, if you are ever in Kansas, City MO. up north of the river on Antioch street is a deli named Giovanni's and they make a Reuben that qualifies as a meal. There are not a lot of "real" delis in the Midwest, but Giovanni's Reuben Sandwich would satisfy even the ardent East coast deli critics, as my friend from Jersey can atest.

Grilled cheese & bacon sandwich with tomato soup!!! I love this as much as any meal I can get, including a steak or some great italian pasta. And here is how you make it:

Bread (butter one side only of course), Kraft American Cheese slices (2), three slices of bacon (per sandwich), oregano, onion salt, paprika, and basil and grill until brown. For the soup, pour the condensed soup into bowl and fill the can with half water, half milk, stir in, heat and serve!

Must be in these proportions: 1 can (2nd can optional), and 3 sandwiches to dip EVERY BITE into the soup. There is something magical that happens when you combine the sandwich and the soup into one bite (like an Oreo and milk). Ok, now I gotta go eat. Yummmmmmmmmy!

I made that sandwich with a few variations. No olive, no green stuff.
I used turkey, bacon, turkey ham, provolone cheese and miracle whip on one side and mustard on the other it was too big!

gooooood eating.

I'm a big fan of breakfast sandwiches. A nice big bagel with 4 scrambled eggs, a heap of bacon, and melted cheddar everywhere. :)

Home grown beef steak tomatoes, Land O'Lakes White American cheese and Miracle Whip on Canadian brown bread. Thats lunch at least 3 times a week as soon as the garden starts producing. If there isn't any cheese I go with fresh basil!

When I was in college, there was a street vendor called originally enough "Street Treats." He make the best cheese steaks, gyros, and Italian beefs.

As for Chain stores... my rule when traveling is no chain stores. what a waste it is to travel someplace only to eat the exact same thin g you can have anytime when you are at home?

Oh and of course my most favorite appetizer.... to quote Doogie, "I'll take a fur burger hold the fur."

There are much better sandwiches than you'll find at Mothers - cheaper, too.

Not necessarily a sandwich...but for a damned good burger in Dallas go the Twisted Root Burger Company...most excellent!
Twisted Root Burger Co. / 2615 Commerce St. / Dallas, TX / 214.741.ROOT (7668) (http://www.twistedrootburgerco.com/)

And don't forget to try the Chocolate Shake or Homemade Rootbeer Float!


I go there frequently, Wonderful burgers. They use angus beef for all their burgers, and you can get buffalo burgers too. Also they have chipotle flavored ketchup that is awesome.

"Hot and Sweet, but uses your bread and very cheesy,"

two slices of bread (duh) spread with spicy mango chutney
sliced cheicken breast
Nori (seaweed)
your favorite kind of cheese and lots of it.

Heat it in micorwave, pie irons, or George Foreman

I can just feel the asskicking coming, how about you guys?

Hamburgers from Louis Lunch in New Haven, CT....the birth place of the hamburger. You will NOT find a better burger and they do not allow ketchup on the premises.

For a make at home sandwich, try some hearty bread like a true country white, brown it on a griddle with some butter, a bit of mayo some slick sliced bacon, lettuce, tomatoes and an over easy/medium egg.

Have to post my breakfast favorite ...

One egg plus an extra egg white in the pan, fried with salt, pepper, and some Mrs. Dash seasoning ... white cheddar or Jarlsberg Swiss melted on top. Toast a couple pieces of good wheat bread, smear them with coarse German mustard and mayo, slap on the egg and a half, add a layer of dill pickle relish, maybe a handful of sprouts, and go for it. Change of pace ... fry the egg with a real thin slice of ham.
