A good sandwich is blessedly easy to come by, considering that most of us are completely satisfied by a little peanut butter spread between slices of cheap white bread. But a great sandwich? That's another thing altogether. Luckily, we're currently in a sandwich renaissance, with greatness increasingly popping up between buns (or Texas toast or kaiser rolls or other carb creations) across the country.
Every state has stand-out sandwich shops. But there can be only one best -- and, for our money, here they are. You won't find any big chains on this list -- though you should totally still be eating Primanti Bros., Capriotti's, and Big John's whenever you find one -- nor will you find restaurants that make a couple solid sandwiches to complement their main focus (lookin' at you, Joe's!). But there's a diverse selection here: full-animal butchers, Vietnamese bakeries, delis as old as the cities they serve, and more. Grab a napkin -- things are about to get deliciously messy.
Meltz Extreme Grilled Cheese
Fact: There is no such thing as too much cheese. That’s an ethos taken to the limits at this restaurant and its accompanying food truck, a place of cheese extremes so extreme that it’s got the word “extreme” in its name... and a “z” instead of an “s” for added extremity. Consider the mainstay Ultimate Meltz special, which manages to squeeze white Cheddar, mozzarella, fontina, provolone, goat, and gorgonzola between two slices of bread, with the extra cheese getting crispy and crunchy as it seeps out onto the grill. But Meltz takes things to the next level with its rotating selection of mad-scientist grilled-cheese innovations that constantly change with the seasons and the chef's whims, including a juicy pork belly banh mi and a fan-favorite loaded with braised short rib and huckleberry BBQ sauce sourced from the surrounding wilderness. -- AK
