Best Sandwich in Dallas

I've got to admit, I love a good sandwich. And that Cuban sandwich at Jimmy's might just be my favorite right now. But, there are so many varities of sandwiches that it's really hard to pick the best. Aside from BBQ and hamburgers, what is your favorite sandwich and where do you get it?

  1. I love love love the ham and poblano melt at Central Market.

    1. Tops - My own BBQ sandwich about 10 mins after it has gotten off the smoker (brisket or pulled pork with a burbon BBQ sauce).....jealous aren't you!!

      Second - Bahn Mi Thit Nuong (Grilled pork)at La Me' in Dallas (Walnut @ Audelia)

      Third - Any sandwich at Corner Market in Dallas (Greenville Ave)

      Fourth (tie) - Deluxe Po-Boy at Antone's on Harry Hines or Jimmy's Cuban

      Fifth - La Hechizera on Montfort for a Torta....any meat...they are all great!

        Banh Mi (I like #1) at La Me in Dallas
        Pan Bagnat at Voila in Allen

          I will admit for a chain Jason's has a good muffaletta

            it really is very good....who'd have thought it......

          2. re: LewisvilleHounder

            I second(??) The po-boy at Antones. I was amazed to find them. I remember eating at the original (I think) near the Astrodome in Houston. They started franchising about ten years ago and they have never been the same. The one on Harry Hines reminds me of those days when the sandwich was made ahead and sat in a bin while the flavors "married".
            I intentionally took Harry Hines instead of Stemmons to get somewhere today so that I could have a "super" for lunch...

              1. re: kindofabigdeal

                A,
                It's east of Wycliffe, at Douglas I think. About the 4200 block. There is a Binzwanger Glass store across the street. I think they close at 15:00. Try the original or the super (same as original but with more meat and cheese.) They have other po-boys like roast beef, pastrami and tuna but I can't tell you anything about them. For nearly 30 years (did I just say 30 years?) I have had nothing but originals or supers with a bag of fritos...

                  the hours are a bummer for those of us that's work 1900-0700, but I'm sure I can make it on an off day.

                    Antone's tuna 'po boy with their incredible chow chow relish is, just delish!

              2. re: LewisvilleHounder

                Update on Central Market sandwiches. I just stopped in with a co-worker today and they have changed the counter around to the end of the olives/pickles/dips/condiment counter. I believe someone told me they were implementing a fresh sushi bar where the old sandwich counter was. The sandwich counter is no longer right by the deli meats and cheeses. Also gone are the menu of sandwiches and no substitutes are made (no pastrasmi, corned beef or roast beef). You have a selection of about 10 meats (more or less) that is predetermined by the counter. I bummed at the no pastrami so I hurried to Jersey Mikes down the street.

              3. I love Jimmy's too...if you are talking about the Italian market Jimmy's. That place has some great sandwiches for great prices. The meat is fresh, because they slice it in front of you, along with all the other ingredients. You can't beat a sandwich from Jimmy's food store during your weekly lunch break. They have a prosciutto panini that's one of my favorites.

                1. The King (or Count?) of Sandwiches, the Monte Cristo, is my favorite. Unfortunately, the only place I know to get it is Bennigan's (locations abound), so I rarely get one. Anyone know where else you can get one? What about a good Po Boy? That Philly Cheesesteak place downtown makes a serviceable sandwich.

                    imo the crawfish poboy @ the Big Easy in Plano is a fine sandwich. Poboys aren't really to my preference though.

                    1. re: sike101

                      Alligator Cafe on Gaston near Baylor in East Dallas has great Po Boys.

                      1. re: sike101

                        Yeah the Dream Cafe has a Monte Cristo. I have yet to eat it but I have eaten the Cloud Cakes and they are delicious. I just mentioned them at my Dallas food blog. [ thelittledish.com ] When I go back I am definitely going to try the Monte Cristo.

                        1. re: theLittleDish

                          Finally went to Dream Cafe. Had the Monte Cristo, wife had the Cloud Cakes. Both very good. Not exactly the kind of Monte Cristo I've had before where the entire sandwich was deep fried. But my LDL may be a few points the better for it. The place is under construction right now, but it definitely feels like an Austin spot. Certainly out of character for the neighborhood.

                      2. I heartily agree with the Cuban or any sandwich from Jimmy's and the sandwiches from Corner Market as well. I'll add the Palm Beach (pimento cheese) sandwich at Highland Park Pharmacy as another fave.

                        1. re: michaela0416

                          Stopped in last week to Corner Market to see what was up. Have read reviews about it being an awesome place. The concept is very cool, but the sandwiches were not what I was expecting. The bread supposedly from Society Bakery was just a typical ciabatta roll for my Big Texan and some decent bread (would be good on it's own) for the Pimento. I decided on the pimento standing in line glaring at the menu and trying to make up my mind (I spotted the review in D Magazine that they had a "memorable" pimento cheese sandwich) and then asked the chef what he would get if he was eating that day. He suggested the Big Texan....roast beef, bacon, cheddar, tomatoes, onions, lettuce, and chipotle mayo. It all sounded good. So waited about 20 mins for a sandwich and there was maybe 8 people in the place and 4 of them already had their meal, so don't expect the speedy grab and go. The roast beef was bland and I believe Boar's Head brand (??). The Big Texan lacked any kind of "Texan" flavor, I guess I could count the bacon. The chipotle mayo had no taste (or at least on my sandwhich it added nothing) and I could not even detect any smokiness from a chipotle. The roast beef was much more bland than even the cheap processed kind at the local supermarket deli counter. All of this for $7.50 for the Big Texan. The pimento cheese was even worse. The cheese was definitely grated processed American cheese (I could tell by the saltiness). The sandwhich as a whole was way to salty and had to much gloppy mayo with very little hint of the pimentos. The bread was a much more hearty bread than the "Big Texan" but with the pimento cheese it was too much. The slices were too thick and it was a dry coarse grain bread which was coupled with an over salted cheese made you pucker for water. The pimento was $6.50.

                          I also got a Greek Salad...typical pitted kalamata olives, generic feta, tomatoes, celery, purple onions and a almost tastless vinagrette.

                          I would really like to see this place succeed b/c I really like the area and on the day I went (that perfect Spring day in Dallas) would be awesome to enjoy a great sandwhich on the patio/sidewalk. I would suggest by first using some cheddar, less mayo, and more pimentos for the pimento cheese sandwhich. The Big Texan either needs some quality deli meat the DaBecca brand from Clifton comes to mind or make a small house-made portion each day. The cheese could use some help also from some Texas cheddar (Veldhuizen makes a nice cheddar) as could the greek salad feta from Latte Da Dairy.

                          Some of the people in the M Streets and Lakewood area might like this place but I would travel a bit further up Greenville and go to Central Market for a sandwhich. I would even pay that money again if they used better quality ingredients. Don't mean to sound harsh on the place but for $19.25 for two sandwiches and a small serving of Greek salad I would expect better.

                          1. re: LewisvilleHounder

                            I had their cuban and thought it was pretty good, though it's a simple sandwich. What made it was that they had house roasted pork loin, and it was good. Later I had a open face lox sandwich for breakfast and it was a little dissapointing. The saltiness killed everything else and the cream cheese was almost absent. One nice touch was the sprouts, which tempered the other intense flavors. My cuban was good enough that I'd like to try another sometime, but I agree that the price point is higher than the quality warrants.

                            I like places like this for complex, metrosexual sandwiches that I'm ashamed to order in front of my ham and cheese parents. Anything simpler I would go straight to the source, like at Kuby's.

                            I don't know this for sure, but I think the bread comes from Empire.

                            1. re: LewisvilleHounder

                              ^ Everything you say is spot on. The fact that they proudly display "Board's Head" products should say enough. The last and only sandwich I ordered was bland and uninspiring as were the sides that accompanied it. Corner Market is a quiant, friendly, neighborhood concept but the food certainly underperforms.

                              On a different but related note, I had the Cuban at Jimmy's for lunch earlier today - YUMMY!

                              2. re: LewisvilleHounder

                                I must agree with you. I lived down the street from Corner Market for years and eagerly awaited its opening, I guess it was last year. I did like the morningside chicken sandwhich but have only been in a few times because every time I go i end up waiting FOREVER for my meal even when it is not busy. Then once I get it I am left wondering if it was all worth it. I wish I could comment on more of their items but am sad to say that I cannot because I avoid going due to the long wait. I am very sad to leave a bad review because the owner is such a nice man. I hope that someone sees all of this and can take the critisism and use it constructively because I would like to see them succeed.

                            2. I love sandwiches especially those found in Main Street Sandwich Shoppe in 220 Main St. I also keep visiting Subway on 240 Paulding Plz.

                              1. I love every sandwich I've had at Mr. G's in Plano on Coit and 15th. It's in the back of a beer/wine store but don't let that stop you.

                                    Plus one for Mr. G's. It's packed at lunch and closes around eight at night. They are pretty proud of their Zagat's mention as well.

                                  3. Of course, the best sandwich in the world is a huge pastrami from Katz Deli in NYC!

                                      Speaking of which, I recently had a pastrami on rye at Ed's Deli (Preston at LBJ) and it was very mediocre. The bread was good but there was just not enough meat! The last time I was there, before the name change, it was fairly good.

                                        Do you guys think a pastrami sandwich should be one you have to eat with a knife and fork? I've never cared for that style of serving, I want something I can fit in my mouth!

                                        1. re: Chile Pepper

                                          Ordinarily, I don't like over stuffed sandwiches especially with fillings like turkey, salami, tuna fish, cheese, ham, BLT, etc. I just don't enjoy it. HOWEVER, if I feel like I need to take a shower after eating a pastrami sandwich, then it was a good one! I want the pastrami, slathered with mustard, falling out all over the place. It is the ONLY sandwich that I enjoy eating that way.

                                      2. re: margiehubbard

                                        I believe it goes without saying that the supreme deli sandwich (an encomium which contains within it the corollary of greatest sandwich of all time) is Katz's pastrami. The only serious challenger, to my mind, is a bagel sandwich from Russ & Daughters, just down the block -- I love the smoked sturgeon, but their smoked wild salmon is also a knockout (with their home-made cream cheese, plus red onions, lettuce, tomatoes, etc.). I say this as a fervent fan of Jimmy's -- Jimmy's is the best in Dallas (in Texas, so far as I can tell), but honesty requires recognizing Katz's and Russ &Ds.

                                        1. My favorite is the sandwich I get at Central Market. Ciabatta with roast turkey, cranberry, walnuts, brie, arugula. Served hot. I love CM sandwiches becuase the people making them are flat out awesome - they'll put anything you want on it and they don't skimp on ingredients like Subway.

                                          My second favorite, if it qualifies as a sandwich, is the grouper burger at Fish Bone at NW Hwy and Abrams.

                                          2. My favorite is the lamb and beef gyros sandwich at Food From Galilee in Snider Plaza. Juicy, flavorful gyros meat wrapped in a soft pita (just a little greasy-- with perfect fried bits around the edges) and brushed with a sour cream-like sauce. Order it with a side of cucumber yogurt-- delicious!

                                            1. Any sandwich from Kuby's in Highland Park is good. Very good deli fare.

                                              1. I'm a HUGE fan of the French Dip at Houston's. Can't beat their fries either!

                                                    Also a big fan of Jimmy's. I go there at least once a week. My favorite is the Hot Italian Sausage with Peppers & Onions. It don' get much betta den dat!

                                                    And I want to recommend the BLT at Keller's Hamburger's. A very good summer sandwich, totally loaded with bacon, and available in the drive-through for like $2.95. Tator tots are extra.......

It's $6.50, so not as good of a deal, but it's good bacon and the L and T are always good as well as opposed to the limp lettuce and watery tomato you get at some places.

                                                    2. I absolutely love the Chicken salad sandwich at the Mermaid Cafe in the Northpark Neimans. The chicken is nice and chunky and not pastey. Hate pastey chicken salad...I can't remember everything in it but there is chopped celery I know and it is topped with crispy bacon. 5 Stars! It is harty too. My husband even still feels like a man ordering it! Ha!

                                                      1. Tio's Tortas on Lemmon, try the Cuban: not authentic 'cuban' but delicious. All their other sandwiches are good (only gone through half the menu so far LOL).

                                                          as dfwdean alluded to, Tio's "Cubana" has nothing to do with a typical cuban sandwich.

                                                          Tio's: Milanese (pounded, breaded, fried steak), Ham and "Smoked Sausage" - it's not bad, but a little too meaty for my preference.

                                                          The standard cuban sandwich is some variation on roast pork, ham, mustard, pickles and some kind of cheese. The two sandwiches really have very little to do with each other.

                                                          by all means, check out Tio's because they have a number of tasty sandwich options (Cubana isn't my favorite, but I like almost everything they have to a greater or lesser extent). But don't go there expecting a typical Cuban, because there's nothing like that.

                                                            The cubano you get from any torta place is always different from the pressed cuban. They're as different as Spanish vs Mexican Chorizo.

                                                        2. Has anyone tried the Cuban sandwiches at La Cubanita on McKinney Ave yet? I've been meaning to try them.

                                                            I finally stopped in La Cubanita the other week and had the cuban. It's the traditional style and very good. What's with the side of italian dressing though? I've never had Jimmy's (yet) so I can't compare. The fries on the other hand were awful. I guess they were yucca, but were way undercooked, is that the way they are supposed to be? The mojitos were excellent and the place itself is like a tidy version of something you'd find in Little Havana, Miami. No dominos being played though. Oh, and the sliders were good too.

                                                          2. La Duni on Oaklawn has an excellent selection of sandwiches. My favorite is the Torta Cubana.

                                                            1. a new sandwich on my list is the steak sandwich at the libertine bar. its a sliced hangar steak (possibly marinated?) with gruyere and sautéed shallots on grilled bread. it is an excellent sandwich, the meat is tender and not chewy with no gristle, and came with a side of jus. big but not too big and reasonably priced. my friend had the cuban which, while not exactly authentic, was very good as well.

                                                                what's the price? it sounds promising.

                                                                1. re: kindofabigdeal

                                                                  A very reasonable $8, with fries. I was also tempted by a $12 steak (which normally I'd run from). Really good prices on food (a nice little cheese tray with some good selections to choose from, $12), the beer is a little high, but the selection is as good as just about anywhere. I believe they do occasional chef's tasting/beer pairing meals. Friendly service, w/o too many scenesters.

                                                                  1. re: sike101

                                                                    I know this is a late response, but I just found a fabulous and unique sandwich that deems mention. The Fried PB&J at Barcadia on Henderson. You can get the sandwich with or without strawberries or bananas. I know it sounds weird but the sandwich is seriously yummy. It comes with an ice cold milk box and fruit or fries. The fries are pretty good themselves (thick cut wedges).

                                                                    1. re: Mustangsally216

The crunchy natural peanut butter is the way to go with lingonberry preserves. Do you know if the Barcadia version uses all natural peanut butter and if it is crunchy vs smooth??

                                                                      1. re: LewisvilleHounder

Sounds weird I know but the combination was AMAZING! Perfect mix of sweet and salty. He said it was a common sandwich in Rio.

                                                                        1. re: missylee

                                                                          1. re: iluvtennis

                                                                            http://www.chow.com/recipes/11103

                                                                            The cheese on the sandwich can be either Requeijao or Queijo Minas (most noteably from the Minas Gerais region). Requeijao can be the consistancy of crema to cream cheese but a bit saltier. Queijo Minas can be either fresh cheese to slightly aged cheese.

                                                                            With the recipes I found I would probably use some queso fresco (La Vaquita is a great brand made in Houston) which is a slight bit salty and would contrast nice with the sweetness of the banana.

                                                                            The chow recipe calls for fromage blanc (i.e. cream cheese). If you want to use cream cheese I would suggest a more upscale version using the fresh chevres from La Cuesta (from Clifton, TX) or Pure Luck (Dripping Springs) dairies both available at CM or WF.

                                                                              1. re: LewisvilleHounder

                                                                                I did a little looking and found that the combo is also a pizza topping. Missylee makes it sound like it's fresh sweet banana but I can imagnine fried plantain being great, especially with how you describe the requeijao.

                                                                              2. re: iluvtennis

                                                                                Just saw this and realized I never replied. The cheese tasted similar to a gouda so maybe it was Queijo Minas that Lewisvillehounder mentions. He did actually use a ripe sweet banana not a plantain but that might of been because we didn't have a plantain. Thinking about it now they probably use fried ripe plantains in Brazil.

                                                                  2. Well, here goes...The Palm Beach at Highland Park Cafeteria, the Chicken Salad at Mermaid Bar, the Club at Houston's, any sandwich on the menu at La Duni's, the tuna melt at Jason's, and my own peanut butter and strawberry preserves on dense whole wheat at home!

                                                                    1. I found another keeper... the Rueben at Capitol Pub. The cornbeef is housemade. The sandwich has just the right ratio of meat to kraut. The bread doesn't sog out and disintegrate like some do. I hate a sandwhich that falls apart in your hands. The Capitol has great fries, too.

                                                                      1. in addition to many faves already listed here....BLT at The Loon--so much good crunchy bacon, Steak and Blue Cheese at Bistro N at Nordstrom Northpark, Rueben at The Monk

                                                                              If you ever get the chance to go to NYPD Deli in Euless....try the Soprano. Great sandwich. Its just off 183 on Industrial. My 2 cents.

                                                                            2. The french dip at Houston's is my favorite, followed my the Italian chicken sandwich or Cuban sandwich at Jimmy's. Every once in a while, I crave chicken salad. I love Empire Bakery's chicken salad on nut bread. I get intense french dip cravings and Houston's is freshly roasted prime rib on a brioche like dough. However, it's completely overpriced at $17. Really hard to justify paying that much for a sandwich. Jimmy's is the best bang for your buck.

                                                                              1. Sandwiches are all about the bread...and the best bread in DFW (at least...that I've found so far) is Eatzi's.

                                                                                2. Chocolate Angel Too has an amazing, tricked-up grilled cheese sandwich. Here's the description from their menu:

                                                                                  "Some like it Hot

                                                                                  It's served warm so the cheese is gooey and melty. So good, so good!

                                                                                  1. Scardello is making great sandwiches with cheeses as the focus, naturally. They put them on Empire bread, who does a very respectable job. I have found a bakery doing as good of a job across the board. They are well balanced sandwiches, assembled and pressed to order. They take a little bit of time, but that's because they allow them plenty of time on the press for quality browning, rather than just a toasting.

                                                                                    1. Recently tried out M Cafe (Arapaho/Coit in Richardson)...

I would love to tell you about all of their sandwiches but for the past 7 years I have only been able to order the Blackjack #21. I won't tell you whats on it. Go try it. Worth the drive!

I grew up in Arlington, and Dino's, the original one near Six Flags Mall (now closed) was a frequent date-night place for my now-ex-husband and me. Best sub sandwiches I've ever had. I live in Carrollton now (as my screen name reflects) and the ex-husband is ancient history, but I still go to the Collins and Arkansas Dino's location when I'm in the area. There is just nothing like a fresh sub on their terrific bread, made with high quality cold cuts and cheeses that are sliced to order.

                                                                                          2. The Cuban at Jimmy's is outstanding, but so are their other sandwiches.

                                                                                              The Prosciutto Panino at Jimmy's is pretty hard to beat, with its giant shards of fresh mozzarella. But I do like an egg salad at Deli News. Comfort food for me I suppose. I like the Eatzi sandwich bar, but i feel guilty ordering a huge piled on sammich when there is a mile long line of salad eaters staring me down.

So, I went to Antoine's. Sadly, I was not very impreseed. I would choose PD Johnsons over Antoine's every time.

                                                                                              2. The "Italian Special" at the Big Easy in Plano, TX-hands down, best sandwich I've had :)

                                                                                                1. For those that haven't been able to make it to Jimmy's Food Store, because they close fairly early each day, check them out this weekend. Jimmy's will be open for one of their rare Sunday afternoons. Usually reserved for Thanksgiving and Christmas weekends, I guess the super bowl now joins their ranks. I am thinking prime beef that they have on special, or possibly the Italian sausage they make. Regardless, I will grab some kind of sandwich.

                                                                                                  Someone accused me of having an agenda today on another blog. I suppose I do when it comes to great food.

                                                                                                  1. I love a good grilled chicken sandwich but they seem a bit elusive. The quality’s that I admire are mostly A. not dry, B. have some flavor, C. have a good bun. Here is what I have so far in Dallas #1 Mas Mejor (ON CHEDDAR JALAPINO BUN) at Ozona’s, I’ve been eating it once a month for 10 years (I wish they would do a good BBQ version), #2 The Ranch in Las Colinas, great bun and guacamole and lastly although I’m not a fan of chains #3 Chix Po-Boy at Razzoos and #4 is the BBQ at Chix sand Fridays. Help can anyone suggest more, I NEED to branch out!

                                                                                                    1. I just had the best turkey/bacon/avocado club I've ever had at east Hampton sandwich co in snider plaza. It was expensive, 12 or 13 bucks I think, but worth every penny. I've been thinking about it for a week....
