Best Sandwich on the Pike?

OssoBuco Jul 28, 2006 03:48 PM

I'm trolling for suggestions for great sandwiches on or near Rockville Pike.

I'm partial to pretty much any of the sandwiches at Cuban Corner in Rockville, and the Bahn Mi at Ba Le. I've had a very tasty, if somewhat pricy, oyster po'boy at Addie's.

Any suggestions for other can't miss sandwiches or sandwich places in the area?

    You should try the Cubano at Blue Mountain Cafe. Quite good. I have not tried Cuban Corner yet, however so I can't compare.

      A few more to try: the pulled pork at Urban Bar-B-Que, chopped chicken or chorizo at Crisp & Juicy, steak Milanese at El Patio, and whatever the fresh fish of the day is at Cameron's.

        I agree- El Patio has great sandwiches and is great for lunch.

        Thanks! Not sure how I forgot Crisp & Juicy, and I'll certainly try the other places -- sounds like there may be a week's worth of decent sandwiches out there after all...

          I'm ducking under my desk in anticipation of the all-but-assured slams, but Rocklin's sandwiches, especially the lamb, are pretty tasty.

            I might sound like an isolated DC lunatic that has never had a "real" jersey sub, but ...the Italian Cold Cut Sandwich on a Ciabatta Roll (sp?) with everything on it, including Giardinia (sp? marinated vegetable salad) and red hot pepper spread from Eatzi's is about the best thing you've ever tasted in your life and can easily feed two very hungry adults.

            I will further risk mentioning that a fresh bagel from Manhatten Bagel with Whitefish Salad makes a pretty fine Sunday brunch, while certainly not the finest example of said item.

              You are not an isolated lunatic. You have company.

              I love specific recs like this 'Get sandwich A with dressing B and tell them to add C.' Reminds me of the stories from Calvin Trillin. Ah, too bad you didn't ask for the extra tomatoes - That's what sets it apart!

              I wouldn't say it's the best thing out there, but I was amazed at how good the Shrimp Po'Boy was at Copeland's.

              Don't throw poo.

                Are you willing to drive north on the pike until it becomes Frederick Road into Gaithersburg? If so, try Roy's Place Restaurant, my favorite sandwich spot in the area. www.roysplacerestaurant.com
