10 Bucket List Sandwiches

It’s no secret that we love to eat. In our travels, we’ve been blessed to experience some of the best food on the planet. We’ve compiled a list of 10 sandwiches that should be a part of your culinary Bucket List! We have pictures of some of these sandwiches. Others were devoured before we took out our cameras, still they made a good enough impression to be included in this list.

1. Muffuletta

from Central Grocery in New Orleans, Louisiana. The famous Muffuletta sandwich consists of layers of meats, olive salad and cheese on a loaf of round sicilian sesame seed bread. Need w say more?

 

2. Ghetto Burger

from Ann’s Snack Bar in Atlanta, Georgia.  Miss Ann, the proprietor and sole employee of Ann’s Snack Bar, is Atlanta’s version of the Soup Nazi, She has very strict rules posted on the walls along with an article from the Wall Street Journal proclaiming her Ghetto Burger as the best burger in America! There’s always a wait but it’s always worth it.

Miss Ann assembles her famous Ghetto Burger consisting of two beef patties, cheese, caramelized onions, deep fried bacon!

3. Mallorca

from La Bombonera in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico. La Bombonera has been in operation in Old San Juan for over 100 years. As a breakfast sandwich, the mallorca is the best thing that’s ever passed our lips.

4. Ahi Burger

from Gott’s Roadside in St. Helena, California. A perfectly seared chunk of sushi grade ahi tuna with ginger wasabi mayo and Asian slaw on a toasted egg bun right in the heart of Napa county’s wine country.

5. Pitts-Burger Cheese Steak

from Primanti Brothers in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. How can you not love a sandwich topped with cole slaw and french fries! ?

6. The Ringer

from Guy’s Burger Joint aboard the Carnival, Sunshine cruise ship. We were so impressed with these cruise ship burgers that we asked them to let us shoot a video of how they are made.

7. Angels on Horseback Po-Boy

from Superior Seafood in New Orleans, Louisiana.  It’s no wonder that we always gain weight when we visit New Orleans. This bacon-wrapped fried oyster po-boy is worth every calorie.

8. Corned Beef Ruben

from Greenblatt’s Deli in Hollywood, California. We asked the locals and  they were right! This ruben ROCKS!

9. Pulled Pork BBQ Sandwich

from Payne’s Bar-B-Q in Memphis, Tennessee. There are a ton of awesome BBQ joints in Memphis, but when it comes to the BBQ sandwich, Payne’s pulled pork shoulder topped with mustard slaw is hard to beat.

10. The Hot Brown

from the historic Brown Hotel in Louisville, Kentucky. This open-faced turkey sandwich with bacon and Mornay sauce is a Louisville tradition with worldwide appeal!

The Hot Brown from the Brown Hotel in Louisville is worthy of any bucket list

  2. Good list. I like that you have Primanti Brothers on there. And you are correct about Memphis bbq. Payne’s is good. My favorite is Central BBQ.

    No Philly cheesesteak? Where’s the love?

    • Rick Griffin says:

      Briana, the only reason a Philly cheesesteak didn’t make our list was that we haven’t yet been to Philly to experience it. Where do you recommend we go to experience the best?

  5. So many sammitches, not enough time.

    I just returned from Pittsburgh but did not get a Primanti sandwich (this time). BTW, there is a Primanti in Ft. Lauderdale.

    Guys…I see this blog two ways! Some lavish weight- lifters displayed, waiting to be chosen over free will or this amazing thanks giving menu opulently squeezed between two buttered and grilled sandwich buns. I like to see it the latter way. Yumminess overloaded !!
