Ten Favorite Metro Phoenix Sandwiches

Page 2 of 6

Bistro Steak Sandwich @ Portland's This decade-old downtown establishment makes a near-perfect steak sandwich, loaded with thin slices of cooked-to-order steak, sweet grilled onions, aged white cheddar cheese, spicy jalapeño remoulade, and fresh tomatoes and lettuce all on a lightly toasted herb focaccia. This hearty sandwich is big enough for two and available only on Portland's lunch menu, but if you can't find yourself a lunch date, you can trade in half of your sandwich for a side of their crispy Cajun fries or a side of steamed veggies.

Meatball Sandwich @ McGurkee's J P Sandwich Shop This west-side spot gets packed during the busy lunchtime hours and we're thinkin' it's because the Italian eatery churns out some of the best tasting sandwiches west of Central Ave. For almost 40 years, this homey shop has been impressing hungry sandwich lovers with their meaty subs and sesame seed-flecked bread. We love their rich meatball sub, loaded with savory handmade meatballs and covered in tomato sauce and melted mozzarella. The service is just as good as the sandwich itself and it's worth it to stick out the wait.
