Can't Miss Meals

Unforgettable from Baggin’s Gourmet Sandwiches

The name says it all: you won’t forget this stacked sandwich any time soon. Sliced turkey breast, tangy cream cheese, mayo, sprouts, tomatoes, avocado, and bacon, are layered between two slices of 12-grain bread. $8.25. bagginsgourmet.com

Corned Beef Sandwich on Rye from Eli’s Deli on 5th Street

A corned beef sandwich so good, you’ll be transported to New York City after just one bite. The sandwich might sound simple, but when it comes down to it, you can’t beat good corned beef on good rye bread. And that’s exactly what the Jewish deli and market serves. $10.95. 5071 E 5th St.

Bumblebee from Welcome Diner

A classic fried chicken sandwich with a twist. One piece of fried chicken topped with house-made mustard, bread and butter pickles, drizzled with local honey, and stuffed between two halves of a fresh and fluffy biscuit. $10. 902 E Broadway Blvd.

Cheesesteak from Frankie’s Cheesesteaks

The sandwich that will get you to Philly faster than any plane ever could. A sturdy roll is filled to the brim with grilled prime beef, caramelized onions, and—of course—cheese. It’s classic, it’s satisfying, and it’s sure to be messy.

Tuna Salad Sandwich from The B Line

A tuna salad sandwich with all the comforts of home, but with toothsome levain instead of Wonder Bread. Order a whole sandwich, or opt for 1/2 of a sandwich with a side of The B Line’s soup of the day. Oh, and don’t forget to visit the pastry case for dessert!
