Where to Find Eater Readers' Favorite Sandwiches

View as Map

Eater's Open Thread last Friday asked readers to name their favorite sandwiches, and many obliged. Whether they're one of the many varieties available at Taylor Gourmet, a Cuban from a beloved food truck or a French Dip from a sit-down restaurant, there are plenty of options for sandwich lovers out there. Lobster rolls, Italian cold cuts and po' boys all get their due in this map of favorites (listed in no particular order).
