The Great American Sandwich Showdown of 2018

Which sandwich will be named the hero?
By Published Mar. 12, 2018

There's never a shortage of food debates: What's the best style of barbecue? Which city makes the best fried chicken? Is a calzone technically a pizza? This year, in the spirit of March Madness, we've decided to set our sights on one food category that inspires loyalty, controversy, and passion. That's right, we're talking about sandwiches.

We chose eight of our fans' most beloved sandwiches and randomly generated match-ups between them. Will voters favor the universally adored BLT? Will a regional specialty like Iowa Loose Meat Sandwich declare victory (despite its name)?

Which sandwich is your number one pick? Be sure to cast your vote—and may the best sandwich win!

How to Vote
