The 25 Greatest Sandwiches In America

One of the sandwiches below will be named the Best Sandwich in America by food expert Adam Richman. The title of Best Sandwich in America is so broad and with literally tens of thousands of options I feel like there is no way you could ever accurately name the best sandwich. BUT… Richman is the man and travels the country eating food for a living so if anyone were ever to undertake this monumental task I think he could do the best job. His show premiere Wednesday 6/6 at 9|8c on Travel Channel so make sure you set your DVR’s. In the mean time check out the contenders… only one will be crowned Best Sandwich in America!
