21 Best Sandwiches in America

Merriam Webster defines a sandwich as ‘two or more slices of bread or a split roll having a filling in between’.

The Earl of Sandwich, otherwise known as John Montagu, gets credit for popularizing the sandwich concept in England during the late 18th century.

But, despite centuries of history in England and beyond, the sandwich has become an American phenomenon.

1. Fried Chicken Sandwich


Simultaneously crispy and juicy, the Fried Chicken Sandwich may be the best sandwich in America based on its satisfyingly savory flavor and crunchy texture.

Po Boy

Typically prepared on a Leidenheimer baguette and topped with either crispy seafood or slow cooked roast beef, this New Orleans creation is a king among sandwiches.



Famous around the world, the Cheesesteak originated in Philadelphia – hence the Philly Cheesesteak nickname and its popularity in the city of brotherly love.



A classic Cubano piles roast pork, ham, swiss cheese, pickles and mustard on Cuban bread (a flatter, wider French baguette). The sandwich is then pressed to melty goodness.


Grilled Cheese

This is a classic sandwich that tastes best when cheese and butter (and occasionally mayonnaise) are added without concern about calories or cholesterol.
