15 Sandwiches Everyone Should Try Once

These all look for the most part, like "Roadfood sandwiches".  With perhaps the exception of that Broccoli Classic.  As much as I love broccoli, that sandwich is unappealing to me.
 
Any thoughts?

    Agreed. The world does not need a broccoli sandwich.

    Why would anyone want to ruin a Fluffernutter by deep frying it?

    Especially the one that actually is Roadfood: the BPT from Nick's in Huntington, Indiana.
     
    Another "no" vote for the broccoli sandwich.  I prefer my broccoli steamed, sauteed, in Chinese dishes and even chopped and mixed with cheese for those bar food poppers, but not in a sandwich.

    All this resistance to a Broccoli Sandwich, but I'll bet you'd all jump on Tony Luke's Roast Pork Sandwich featuring Broccoli Rabe.

    Actually, it features rapini, even though I call it broccoli rabe. The really great thing about it is that it's not that dreaded broccoli.

    I'll take a pass on the broccoli sandwich, too. And I still don't see the fascination with fries on a sandwich. That BPT from Nick's is fantastic, though. My favourite BPT anywhere.

    Is Primanti's still considered "Roadfood"?
     
    37 locations in 8 states, ranging from Indiana to Florida.  It looks the place that started in the Strip District will soon be at a Strip Mall near you.

    I would never write off broccoli as a sandwich ingredient - because I've had the fourth sandwich in their list.  I first heard about it at Serious Eats.
     
    http://newyork.seriouseats.com/2013/06/a-sandwich-a-day-the-broccoli-at-no-7-sub.html
     

     
    Serious Eats
    The broccoli is roasted until just tender but still firm; the florets brown and caramelize in the heat, giving the vegetable a welcome meatiness. The sandwich comes with a well-proportioned amount of salty, crumbly ricotta salata, which, combined with a light spread of mayo, balances crunch with creaminess. Toasted pine nuts studded across the sandwich enhance the roasted flavor and add another layer of texture. We only wish there was a little more creaminess to go with all the crunch. To up their No. 7-esque weirdness there's also a lychee muchim, which gets lost in the mix; its lychee fruitiness only shows up as a generic sweetness.

    saps, We have one in Scranton now.  If you close your eyes and take a bite, you'd swear you were in the Strip District.
     
    Chains have a tendency of dumbing down their food for the sake of sameness.  Primanti's didn't take that route. And, the prices are really reasonable too! So, definitely a chain, but, dedicated to quality.

    That's good news about the Primanti's outside of the original one.
     
    Apparently they are not franchises, which is probably a good thing as well.
     
    I always remember the original Pizzeria Uno in Chicago (which I always thought was mediocre), that went national and produced an absolutely horrible product.

    Because they don't offer a sandwich made with goetta?

    They could put fries and cole slaw on goetta!
     
    When I was a teen, nobody outside of Pittsburgh had the slightest clue about Primanti's.  It was just another sandwich place, no big deal.  I have been to two other Primanti Bros. locations and for me, it's just not the same.  Yeah, same sandwich, same fries, same slaw, but it's the ambience that's missing and that is part of the whole Primanti experience!
     
    The sandwich that I would love to have some day is the Italian roast pork with rabe from Tony Luke's!!!!

    The "Pilgrim" (Thanksgiving Dinner sandwich) looks to be very appetizing.
     
    Anyone ever had one?
     
    Did it meet expectations?
     
    ----------------------
     
    I always remove most of the fries and slaw from my cap & provo Primanti sandwich and enjoy them separately.  As constructed, the fries overwhelm the sandwich, IMHO.
     
    ----------------------
     
    I'm surprised that Al's #1 Italian Beef didn't make the list. 
     
    (BTW: the Al's in Dallas dropped the franchise, but still serves up Al-style Italian Beef).

    You remove the fries and slaw from your Primanti sandwich?  Then it is no longer a Primanti sandwich.  I contacted Primanti Bros. and you are now banned from their restaurants.  You must now get your sandwiches at Subway where nobody cares what you add or remove. 
     
    MH always makes a Thanksgiving Dinner sandwich, but on white bread.  He loves them.  Turkey, stuffing and cranberry sauce.

    They could always make that a special for the Cincy location  but seriously, there's enough Steelers fans in the Queen City that a location makes sense.

    Nope.  You have the Pine Club.  Not sharing Primanti's with Dayton or anyone that happens to be a Bengals fan!

    I always got to Krema to get gifts for people around the holidays so I always end up there when they are not serving sandwiches.  But now I am thinking I need to go check it out.

    We have only Krema peanut butter at home and Santa put a 1 lb. bag of both salted peanuts and giant cashews in my stocking.    But I'm not sure if I'm sold on the peanut butter/strawberry sandwich.

    While I have never been to Tony Luke's (but look forward to it), the best sandwich I've ever had was a roast pork with sharp provolone and rabe at Tommy DiNic's.
    While I enjoyed the BPT at Nick's, I've had 5 or 6 that I thought were better.

    You will not be disappointed......................Tony Luke's roast pork with rabe and sharp provolone is my favorite sandwich in the world.   I had one last week when we went to Philly.  That sandwich for an early luch and dinner at Ralph's makes for a perfect day.

    It's worth a shot though!  Also try the cashew crunch.  They have it by itself or covered in dark chocolate.  Very addicting.
