50 Sandwiches You Should Eat Before You Die

50 Sandwiches You Should Eat Before You Die

By: Andy Kryza and Kevin Alexander. Photo: Sebastian Davis/Thrillist

No matter what that bloke Earl tells you, sandwiches are the quintessential American food: meat, cheese, bread, and moxie are what this country was founded on. That’s why it’s your duty – nay, your destiny – to eat as many different varieties of your birthright food as humanly possible.

With sandwich-fest destiny in mind, we’ve developed this bucket list of 50 sandwiches across America that you should eat before you die (probably from eating so many sandwiches). No burgers, sausages, or gyros here. Just sandwiches that will enrich your soul while also showing you all the corners of the country and yourself. Bring napkins

Philly cheesesteak

Tony Luke’s
Philadelphia, PA
Tony’s is a legend, and everybody should eat a Philly made in actual Philly at least once. But if not Tony’s, just go to a Philly sandwich shop named after a dude – John, Geno, George – who sounds like he works in the mill.

Roast pork

John’s Roast Pork
Philadelphia, PA
And while you’re already in Philly, the roast pork sandwich – an explosion of juice-soaked pig and sharp provolone – is their other, less-nationally-touted – and arguably better – signature sandwich, and John’s just might be the original. If it’s not, it’s still the best. Oh, and they also make a hell of a cheesesteak. So maybe get both. It’s not like it’s gonna kill you. (Editor’s Note: it might kill you.)

Lobster roll

The Clam Shack
Kennebunkport, ME
It’s not served in a hot dog bun, but a round roll. But other than that small twist, the lobster roll served at The Clam Shack is a simple, delicious Maine dream: mayo, a little melted butter, and fresh lobster meat. Bonus points if you’re wearing an L.L.Bean backpack as you take it down.

Italian beef

Johnnie’s Beef
Elmwood Park, IL
The Chicago institution is our favorite source of gravy-soaked beef perfection. But you can get a great one anywhere in the city and still be pretty happy. Just be sure to eat it before the roll disintegrates, and chase it with an Old Style.

Shrimp jibarito

Joey’s Shrimp House
Chicago, IL
Much like the Italian beef, the jibarito is a Chicago-created sandwich that was inspired by a foreign land – in this case, Puerto Rico – whose residents might be heard to say “huh?!” if you ordered it. Basically, it’s a sandwich made with fried plantains, which can be filled with everything from lechon to gyro meat. Well, Joey’s does it with shrimp, and it might just be the best of all of them, especially now that the original Borinquen is no longer with us.

The Tipsy Texan

Franklin BBQ
Austin, TX
Yeah, you’ll wait in line. A long line. Yeah, it’ll be worth it. And while some people will argue that the meats at Franklin needn’t be bogged down with sandwich fixins, this sucker comes with chopped brisket, smoked sausage, and slaw. It’s big enough to feed two. But you waited in line for a long time, so you’re advised to get this as a side order with a mound of brisket.

The Bobbie

Capriotti’s
Wilmington, DE
Essentially a Thanksgiving leftover sandwich, but everything tastes better at this Delaware joint that has been expanded to 17 states. Probably because Capriotti’s cooks are better than your mom, and don’t end up drying out the turkey because they drank four mimosas for breakfast.

BLT

Tony’s I-75
Birch Run, MI
Because sometimes, when you’re in the middle of Michigan, it makes perfect sense to consume 1lb of crispy bacon in sandwich form before you get back on the freeway.

The Spuckie

Cutty’s
Brookline, MA
Say it with us now: fennel salami, hot capicola, mortadella, mozzarella, olive-carrot salad on fresh ciabatta. Even if you grew up in the North End and have an Italian flag tattoo covering your entire torso, this is still going to be the best Italian sandwich you’ve ever had in your life.

Club sandwich from an actual country club

Cut into triangles, with a little club sauce, just for Lucille II. If you can charge it to the Underhills, please do.

A fancy grilled cheese

Melt Bar & Grilled
Cleveland, OH
Cleveland’s Melt Bar and Grilled takes grilled cheese so seriously that their cultish followers get discounts for sandwich tattoos. It’s also the place that will inspire you to up your grilled-cheese game at home, though we’re never going to fault you for falling back on the simple tradition of a diagonal-cut American cheese gut-bomb.

Beef on weck

Bar Bill
East Aurora, NY
Fun fact: when your boy Chad calls Buffalo Wild Wings BW3’s, the extra “w” is for “beef on weck,” another Buffalo, NY mainstay that isn’t nearly as popular as those wings. Probably because it’s just slow-roasted beef on a special kummelweck roll, and it’s easier to say “Jamaican jerk” than “kummelweck.” But it’s still delicious, and at Bar Bill, you can get it with wings.

The Reuben, in its city of origin

Crescent Moon
Omaha, NE
That’s right, we said Omaha. And Crescent Moon has the best, based on the original Blackstone Hotel recipe. Suck it, New York.

The Crab Happy Chesapeake Chicken Sammy

Miss Shirley’s
Baltimore, MD
Giant lump crab cakes are a Baltimore specialty that come on everything from Benedicts to, well, just plates. Miss Shirley’s ups the ante with chicken sausage, cheese, a fried egg, and veggies, then smashes it all between an English muffin.

A fried brain sandwich. Seriously.

Schottzie’s
St. Louis, MO
Avoid any temptation to make a Walking Dead joke and just go for it. Brain sandwiches are a tradition in St. Louis so endangered, they’re like the white rhino of lunch. Schottzie’s has the best. Unlike rhinos, you don’t have to feel bad for eating them. And fried brains (pig, usually, since mad cow disease ruined everything) taste better.

Anything that could score you a T-shirt, or a picture on the wall

Maybe it’s a Big Fat Ugly from Madison’s Fat Sandwich Co. filled with all the meats and sides, or a race to finish the 27in Big Fat Fatty at Fat Sal’s in San Diego. When there’s a T-shirt or a Polaroid on the line, no risk of diabetic shock is too high.

Loose meat sandwich

Chuck and Edna’s Maid-Rite
Cascade, IA
It’s like a Sloppy Joe. Except it’s not sloppy, because it’s basically the state food of Iowa, and in Iowa, you do a lot of driving. We like the one at Chuck and Edna’s spot in Cascade, but you can get them all over the place. Getting loose meat all over your lap sucks enough when it’s not covered in sauce.

Rocky Mountain oyster sandwich

Montana
Best experienced amid the crowds of Clinton’s annual Testicle Festival, but perfectly fine at most saloons where you can find ‘em. Yeah, they might be bull ‘nads. But they taste like – well, do you have the balls to find out? (Fun fact: they’re delicious.)

A sandwich with fries and slaw in it

Primanti Bros.
Pittsburgh, PA
Preferably in Pittsburgh proper, but if you’re lucky enough to have a Primanti’s near you in Florida or West Virginia, that’ll do. We’re partial to beef, but even if you get it was bologna, it’s a hell of a French fry- and slaw-topped thing to behold.

Chopped pork

Payne’s Bar-B-Q
Memphis, TN
Yellow, crunchy, mustardy slaw. Hot peppery sauce. Some burnt bits and some juicy bits. Lots of napkins. Eat and repeat.

A PB & J made by a mother

Any mom will do. Just make sure she cuts it diagonally.

Cuban

Enriqueta’s
Miami, FL
That combination of ham, roasted pork, Swiss, pickles, and mustard is as synonymous to Miami as body-image issues are to tourists. Score the real deal at Enriqueta’s, or from any hole-in-the-wall where great music and delicious smells waft out. Seriously. How is Miami in such good shape?

Hot beef

Wall Drug Cafe
Wall, SD
Is it good? Hell no. It’s Wall Drug. It’s cafeteria roast beef on a slice of Wonder Bread covered in mass-produced gravy and an ice-cream scoop of mashed potatoes. But then you throw in the free ice water and $.05 coffee you’ve seen signs for every 10ft for the past 600 miles, and you kind of have to. Because you’re in the middle of South Dakota’s Badlands, and there’s literally nowhere else to stop. And the animatronic T-Rex isn’t scheduled to roar again for 15 minutes, so you might as well eat something.

Burnt end

LC’s Bar-B-Q
Kansas City, MO
Once you eat the burnt ends from LC’s, you’re a changed person. You are not the same. You will consider camping out just outside the restaurant to keep coming back for that meaty, crispy, beautiful bark. This is a good thing.

Pastrami

Katz’s Delicatessen
New York, NY
Then, after you’ve gotten that out of your system – literally and figuratively – the same thing at one of New York’s myriad less-iconic, less-expensive, and possibly better Jewish delis.

The Fat Mystery

PJ’s Sandwiches
Columbus, OH
Sometimes, you just have to play Russian roulette with your arteries. At this drunchies oasis, the Fat Mystery puts your life in the cook’s hands. You’ll get a mystery meat – steak, perhaps, or maybe chicken tenders. And you’ll get four sides, which might include mozz sticks, poppers, or pierogies. They’ll all be tossed in a bun. Zoinks, Scoob.

Carnitas torta

La Torta Gorda
San Francisco, CA
Several blocks over from some of the best burritos in the world sit perhaps the best tortas. Come hungry: They don’t call it “the Fat Sandwich” for nothing.

Muffaletta

Central Grocery
New Orleans, LA
There are better places to get New Orleans’ traditional Sicilian sandwich than the place where it was invented, the locals will tell you. Suspiciously, those locals are in line at Central Grocery.

Porchetta

Salumi
Seattle, WA
Porchetta from any Italian joint’s a thing of fatty, savory beauty. But at this Seattle institution, Mario Batali’s dad takes it to the next level, cramming the roasted pork with meatballs and spices and braising it to perfection.

Bacon, egg & cheese from a nameless NYC bodega

Extra points if the resident cat has a name, but the store doesn’t.

Pork tenderloin

Green Street Pub
Brownsburg, IN
Green Street Pub’s version is delicious, but if you really want to start a ruckus, go anywhere in Indiana and say the best you’ve ever had was at Smitty’s in Des Moines. The two states have a bit of a rivalry, and the chances of them really trying to give you the best you’ve ever had is worth the chance of you getting punched for heresy.

The Elvis

The Arcade Restaurant
Memphis, TN
If you want to be extremely morbid, you can get the sandwich that killed Elvis at the Rock & Roll Café right across from Graceland. But the fried peanut butter & banana monstrosity is way better at the Arcade. You have the option to add bacon. Say yes. Do it for the king.

The Taos Style

Palacio Cafe
Santa Fe, NM
You’d think by its name we should’ve went with a place actually in Taos, but we prefer the sandwich made at this Santa Fe spot, thanks to its mix of roast beef, provolone, chopped green chile, caramelized onion, and mayo on panini-pressed sourdough.

A gas station sandwich, out of desperation

Best consumed during a rather dangerous rainstorm, on the side of an isolated highway. Just don’t look at the expiration date on the side of the package.

Chicken-fried steak

Del Rancho
Norman, OK
It’s like the tenderloin sandwich, but with beef, because it’s in the South. And while Texan law dictates that it’s served with sausage gravy and eggs, at Norman, OK’s Sonic-esque Del Rancho, it’s just a regular ol’ oversized hunk of fried meat on a bun. And it’s perfect.

Hot BBQ roast beef

The Linden Store
Wellesley, MA
Only available on Wednesdays. Usually sells out by noon. Add American cheese so it gets nice and melty by the time you unwrap it. The LeBrun brothers (who own and run the shop) have recently expanded the space, which is a bonus, so you now have somewhere to sit while smearing BBQ sauce all over your face.

The Reggie Deluxe

Pine State Biscuits
Portland, OR
A chicken biscuit is a thing of beauty. The Reggie Deluxe at Portland’s Pine State is the sandwich’s finest hour – a biscuit loaded with fried chicken, bacon, sausage gravy, cheddar, and a runny egg. Hangovers never stood a chance.

The duck club

The Tattooed Moose
Charleston, SC
A glorious club sandwich from an inconspicuous Charleston bar. On sweet Hawaiian bread. Piled with chunks of duck, bacon, smoked cheddar, and tears of joy. Start eating it with your hands. Finish it with a fork. Repeat as needed.

Pulled pork

Scott’s Bar-B-Que
Hemingway, SC
Scott’s is famous now, like written about in The Grey Lady famous, but that doesn’t really change anything except the length of the line waiting for the pit-smoked perfection. Just make sure you get some skins on the side.

Bánh mì from a non-sandwich shop

Great Vietnamese sandwiches – packed with daikon, pate, and mystery meat – are often found in unlikely spots like jewelry stores, nail salons, or other strip-mall mainstays. If you see French bread behind a counter, pounce. Word to the wise: anything over $5 is likely hipsterized – and hipsters were run out of Saigon years ago.

“Wet” dip

Philippe the Original
Los Angeles, CA
This LA joint invented the French dip, reportedly named after a dude name French and not the bread. It gets submerged in a jus made of pork, lamb, and beef drippings that drip from the roasted, fresh-carved chunks. So no matter what’s between that bread, your meal is soaked in the flavors of everything on the menu.

The original Joe

Town Hall
East Orange, NJ
In New Jersey, you can get a pork roll anywhere. Only at Orange’s Town Hall can you get the original Sloppy Joe. And guess what: it’s not just a bunch of ground beef and ketchup. It’s actually more akin to a triple-decker Reuben, with ham, tongue, and Swiss. If tongue makes you nervous, better not look at what goes into your go-to Manwich.

Pimento cheese

The Masters Tournament
Augusta, GA
There is, perhaps, nothing more simply Southern than a pimento cheese sandwich on gooey white bread. While the sandwich started as a working man’s cheap meal and aged into a ladies-who-lunch (or have dainty tea parties) snack, it’s also a timeless and traditional snack at the Masters. And at $1.50, you can afford to buy quite a few. You just have to get into the Masters first.

The Z-Man

Joe’s Kansas City Bar-B-Que
Kansas City, KS
Some would argue that Joe’s brisket on its own is simply perfect. And they’d be right. But anyone who argues against complementing it with smoked provolone, onion rings, and a kaiser roll should be promptly shown the door. It’s the stuff of lore, and some suspect it aided the Royals in shaking off their slump. Maybe the Cubs should invest in a franchise.

Hot Leg Quarter Sandwich

Prince’s Hot Chicken
Nashville, TN
You will sweat. Your eyes will water. Your tongue will swell. It will be the most delicious thing you’ve eaten in two months.

Oyster po’ boy

Domilise’s
New Orleans, LA
Any New Orleanian – or just regular visitor – will quickly tell you their po’ boy order, which goes so far beyond just the sandwich: It’s the sandwich type, the shop, and whether it’s ordered dressed or plain. Until you decide on your own so you can proudly rattle it off, take after our associate editor and get the oyster po’ boy, dressed no mayo, at Domilise’s.

The Chivito

Fast Gourmet
Washington, DC
It has so many ingredients (10, in total, including four meats). It is a Uruguayan specialty. And it is the greatest thing to ever come out of a DC gas station.

Clam roll

The Clam Box
Ipswich, MA
There are few things better on a hot summer day in New England than driving up to Ipswich, seeing those red- & white-striped awnings, and then eating as many fried clams stuffed in a soft white bun with some tartar sauce as you possibly can. Hello, swimsuit season!

Hot Brown

The Brown Hotel
Louisville, KY
It only makes sense that this open-faced turkey and bacon sandwich that’s topped with cheesy Béchamel sauce was originally made as a late-night snack. Bonus points if you eat it after the Derby.

The House-Made Mozzarella

Pane Bianco
Phoenix, AZ
Chris Bianco is famous for basically inventing the new age of artisanal pizza. So just imagine what he can do with freshly baked focaccia from a wood-fired oven, house-made mozzarella, local tomatoes, and basil. Hint: good stuff.

Three Floyds is a family operation that has expanded with high demand. But since they can’t ship outside of their distribution area, you’ll have to make the trek for these decidedly “not normal” beers, like the Zombie Dust pale ale.

Canadian Town Might Change ‘Land Of Rape And Honey’ Motto

TISDALE, SK – A small town on the Canadian prairies is considering tweaking the motto it’s proudly carried for more than half a century: “The Land of Rape and Honey.”

It’s important, very important, to acknowledge that the slogan has nothing to do with sexual assault. It’s actually referring to rapeseed, a less-refined version of the modern canola crop. But the town’s motto has raised eyebrows over the years, since “canola precursor” isn’t exactly the first thing that springs to mind when one mentions “rape.” The second part of the slogan is pretty straightforward: Tisdale is known for producing honey as well as rapeseed.

Earlier versions of the town’s sign

The town of 3,200 has had the slogan since 1958. Town mayor Al Jellicoe told the Toronto Star that his office fields a couple of complaints over the slogan every year. He added that residents often need to clarify the meaning of the slogan to outsiders:

“Once you explain, it eases things up a bit. But when you’re trying to deal internationally or nationally – I don’t want to do that every time we entice a business to the area.”

Tisdale is holding a referendum for its residents on whether the motto should stay or go. The last time such a debate was held, back in 1992, the vote was split and the motto stayed.

A field of rapeseed

The new survey notes that rapeseed production now accounts for a tiny percentage of crops produced in the region, and that honey production has also dropped. Alternative mottos suggested in the survey include “Hub of the Northeast,” “A Place to Grow,” “A Place to Bee” (get it?) and “Land of Canola and Honey.” Jellicoe says he’d like to see the town go with the slogan “The Land of Rapeseed and Honey Bees,” which is pretty much the same as the current motto.

If Tisdale officials are looking for inspiration, there’s more to their town than just rape and honey. The town boasts the largest 7-Eleven in all of Canada (by floor space).

Wow

Not impressed? Me neither, but there’s still more. Tisdale’s slogan was borrowed by industrial metal band Ministry for their 1988 album The Land of Rape and Honey, which climbed as high as 164th on the Billboard Top 200 list. The town also boasts a roadside attraction billed as “The World’s Largest Honey Bee,” though there’s actually a bigger roadside honey bee in neighboring Alberta.

Miley Cyrus – Miley Cryus bares breasts in tribute to Joan Jett

Miley Cyrus – Miley Cryus bares breasts in tribute to Joan Jett
By Bang Showbiz in Lifestyle
Miley Cyrus paid tribute to singer Joan Jett as she was inducted in to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last night by baring her breasts and covering her nipples with pink hearts adorned with the star’s initials.

Miley Cyrus bared her breasts in tribute to Joan Jett as she inducted the singer in miley_cyrus_919438to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

The ‘Wrecking Ball’ hitmaker arrived at the prestigious ceremony in Cleveland, Ohio last night (18.04.15) wearing revealing black dungarees and pink heart shaped nipple covers adorned with the legendary singer’s initials to welcome her band Joan Jett & the Blackhearts into the club.

Miley – who also sported unshaved armpits – gushed over Joan as she took to the stage and recalled an encounter between herself and the 56-year-old star.

She said: ”We were in her bathroom, and we were smoking and just talking, and this was one of the moments in my life where I wanted to be as present and absorb everything that she said to me.

”I listened to her talk about her days with the Runaways. She talked about music… I was getting to have this moment with someone that, to me, is superwoman. What superwoman really should be.”

Miley, 22, also took to her Instagram account before the event where she posted a photograph of herself in the controversial attire, which she captioned: ”Joan’s cheerleader”.

The singer also performed at the 30th annual induction ceremony where Beatles drummer Ringo Starr become the last member of the iconic group to be welcomed into the club.

His former bandmate Paul McCartney, 72, was given the ”great honour” of inducting the star whom he later performed with alongside Green Day at the bash.

Paul said as he welcomed Ringo – whose real name is Richard Starkey – onto the stage: ”You don’t have to look with Ringo. He’s there. It’s a great honour for me to ‘induce’ him… oh, induct him into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame here in Cleveland tonight.”

Also honoured during the ceremony was the late singer Lou Reed, Green Day, The Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Bill Withers, guitarist Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble and The ”5” Royales.

Secret medical slang: Are doctors making fun of you behind your back?

BuddhaWhat do you think about this?

 

Do you know what chandelier syndrome is? What about Acute Dilaudid Deficiency? Doctor-speak is so complicated and technical that it’s difficult to track what they’re saying to each other. But mixed in with actual medical jargon, your healthcare workers could be sharing a joke at your expense.

 

Author and Emergency room physician Brian Goldman has released a new book called “The Secret Language of Doctors,” and it details all the slang and other jargon that doctors and nurses use.

 

Have you heard any of these terms before? Here are just a few of them, according to Goldman:

 

Chandelier syndrome: When a patient jumps after feeling a cold stethoscope.

 
Frequent fliers: These are people who show up at the emergency room again and again, even for non-emergency complaints, potentially because they have nowhere else to receive care.

 

 

The bunker: This is where medical students, residents, and attending physicians meet behind closed doors to talk.

 
Monkey jacket: A hospital gown.

 
Peek-and-shriek: An operation in which a surgeon opened a patient’s belly to find something unexpected, like cancer, and quickly it stitched up again.

 
Cowboys: Surgeons may be called “cowboys” to imply they operate first and think later.

 
Plumbers: Urologists.

 
Gas passers: Anesthesiologists.

 
Discharged Up: After stopping resuscitation efforts, a patient may be “discharged up,” “discharged to heaven.”

 
In the departure lounge: Someone who is dying but still holding onto life.
Circling the drain: A patient that can’t be saved and is near death.

 
FLK: Funny-looking kid, referring to the facial characteristics of a child.

 
Curly toes: Often referred to as homeless people because of the condition of their feet and toenails.

Colleagues of Mustaine’s latest guitarist hail “amazing achievement for Brazilian metal”

Megadeth guitarist Kiko Loureiro has the full support of his colleagues in Angra, they’ve said.

The Brazilian was confirmed as the latest addition to the thrash giants’ lineup last night, and he’ll appear on the band’s 15th album alongside Dave Mustaine, David Ellefson and guest drummer Chris Adler.

Fellow Angra guitarist Rafael Bittencourt says: “Kiko is in Megadeth – what a feeling of pride! This is an amazing achievement for Brazilian metal.

“I have known Kiko for many years. He deserves this great opportunity more than anyone else. He has been tracking a very serious and talented career.”

But Bittencourt accepts that Loureiro’s new job might mark the end of his time with Angra. “I believe he will comply with all activities he has already committed to, and he will always be part of our family,” he says.

“He will not be able to turn his back on something he helped build. I’m sure we will still do a lot together – either in or out of Angra.”

The Brazilian outfit launched eighth album Secret Garden in January and released a video for their track Final Light last week.
