It can be simple or elaborate, but anyway you slice it, nothing beats a good sandwich. This week we're spreading it thick and piling it high, servin' you up a delicious stack of some of the best sandwiches this bread-lovin' town of ours has to offer.

Sandwiches go well with everything, but it takes a hefty hoagie to stand against the bubbly. Cristina O was pleasantly surprised when she Whisk-ed up lunch: "We opened a bottle of Moët Chandon Nectar Imperiale and let me tell you, when a sandwich can hold its own to Moët, you know you found a winner!" Cheers to that! Just down the street is 1909, easily one of Nydia G's favorite sub shops: "They have a pretty big selection (40+) of freshly-made sandwiches – everything from pork to vegetarian."

Eve C's dinner at Jimmy'z consisted of roast beef, brie cheese, and caramelized onions on toasted bread. It also turned out to possibly be the best 'wich she has ever eaten in her life: "Every bite was better than the last." Across the beach, La Sandwicherie is très adored for its sauce, cornichons, and late-night hours. Jorge R sums it up: "The formula is very simple: use fresh meats, fresh veggies, and combine with a delicious homemade house dressing and you have a killer sandwich." Nearby Sandolab keeps the midnight oil burning, staying open until 6am (on weekends), and customers are encouraged to experiment and create their own sandos. Brandon B's a believer after his roast beef with blue cheese, fried onions, and jalepeños "beat the crap out of anything you would get in one of the big national chains."

When craving a cubano, Dan B bites into a fantastic media noche at Islas Canarias – "crispy and buttery Cuban bread, hot and delicious pork/ham/cheese, and the perfect amount of pickles and mustard." That said, Adrian P opts for a Sarussi original: "What makes Sarussi's version so unique is their secret sauce... don't bother asking them about it, they'll just laugh at you." Meanwhile, Armando L pulls into Liberty Gas Station for their masterpiece, the pan con bistec: "Huge, tasty, always freshly made with Cuban bread and string fries. Did I say huge? A feast for one, plenty for two people, even enough for three, on a diet." A pan con bistec diet? We'll steak a claim to that!

Picks of the Week
Reviews we liked this week.
Jordan N. on S&S Diner
"Very unpretentious diner - they'll give you the ends of the loaf of bread since it still constitutes as a slice of bread in their book. It's that old fashion, old school, unpretentious vibe that shows off in the food as well - however, without compromising the quality of their cooking.

The eggs were…"
Andres S. on Hungry Bear Sub Shop
"WIN. if you're sick of those candy-ass subs from quizno's, you need to get yourself here. The subs are packed with meat and are seasoned just right, so they actually have flavor (I'm looking at you, subway).

The honey mustard chicken and philly cheese steak are some classic staples from this place…"
Martin O. on Woody's Famous Steak Sandwich
"The best Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich in Miami! The sweetpotato fries with marshmellow sauce is very original and the regular fries are almost as good as it gets.

I understand Woody's has been in this location for many years, so you can expect to see some typical Florida natives who have been eating…"
Fresh Lists
The newest of our users' favorites. Sandwich Musts!
"Sometimes a sandwich is little more than two pieces of bread with a lil'somethin' in the middle, but other times it's a compact creation of culinary goodness! When a dinner plate is too much but a salad just won't cut it, I head to one of these places for something I can really get my hands on and…"
