Philadelphia is a city that loves great food. We have Iron Chefs and Top Chefs; we have incredible BYOBs; our Food Truck scene has exploded; our neighborhoods are bursting with incredible flavors and cuisines from all around the world; our craft beer scene is as strong as any city in the county, we’ve been called one of the best cities in the U.S. for pizza and burgers, while also being declared the country’s very best city for late-night eats.

All of these edible assets and accolades are part of what makes Philadelphia great, but perhaps nothing speaks to Philadelphia’s love of great food more than our appreciation of an amazing sandwich.

From the world-famous Philly cheesesteak to its less famous, but equally delicious brother, the hoagie, to the third juggernaut in Philly’s sandwich triumvirate, the roast pork sandwich, Philadelphia loves genuinely incredible sandwiches. We know them. We love them. We eat them. It’s what we do.


So it’s no surprise that SAVEUR Magazine recently declared Philadelphia “America’s Best Sandwich City.”

It was actually a nice reminder for Philadelphians not to take for granted the incredible bounty of sandwich awesomeness that we are presented with each and every day. So with that in mind, we put together a quick homage to some of Philly’s best sandwiches in the form of a visual Philadelphia Sandwich Hall of Fame.


So without any further ado, scroll down to check out the initial 12 entries — just be forewarned: doing so will make you hungry. And that’s a good thing. You should probably be making plans to enjoy your next authentic Philly cheesesteak/hoagie/roast pork/etc. as we speak.
