15 fantastic sandwiches in Dallas

The average American eats nearly 200 sandwiches each year. As one of the most popular breakfast dishes in America, National Sandwich Day on November 3 gives us a great reason to celebrate some of this city’s delicious sandwiches. While it’s virtually impossible to list all types of sandwiches and all the great places to find them in Dallas, here are a few worthy of note.

Bánh mì at Sandwich Hag

Beth rankin

Sandwich Hag offers legitimate bánh mì sandwich options ($ 10.75 – $ 12.75) made with pork, sausage, tofu, chicken, and vegetables. Their Nem Nướng Bánh Mì is a bestseller with their homemade pork sausage a little sweet with lots of garlic and a little sticky. A savory sausage comes with homemade pickles, vegetables, a garlic aioli spread, all on a freshly baked Vietnamese baguette. And we love their “no asshole rule” and believe everyone should strive to be nice, cool, and kind. So check it out the next time you’re at Deep Ellum.

While there are plenty of places that serve a great cheesesteak sandwich in Dallas, the cheesesteaks at Big Tony’s West Philly Cheesesteaks are pretty darn good. Big Tony’s commitment to quality includes purchasing his bread from Amoroso’s in Philadelphia, which is considered the hallmark of a true Philadelphia cheesesteak. The Broadstreet Cheese Steak comes with steak, mushrooms, banana peppers, sautéed onions, jalapeños and cheese. Banana peppers add an unexpected and delicious flavor to the sandwich that could easily send it to the Cheesesteak Hall of Fame (if there is such a thing).

For those who don’t regularly travel to downtown Dallas, do yourself a favor and take the trip especially for the french dip ($ 13) at the Economat. The fresh French bun is loaded with minced beef, caramelized onions and Dijon mustard. But what makes this version fantastic and unique is that their steeping “juice” is actually Phở broth, which is earthy, aromatic and flavorful.

Most of you already know how great the pizza crust is at Pie Tap and their new spin-off, PT Neighborhood Pizzeria. So it’s no surprise that they also make their own sourdough bread for these sandwiches, and they managed to stuff their Classic Italian Combination Sandwich ($ 12) with prosciutto, salami, pepperoni, ham, fontina, hot peppers, Calabrian chili aioli, tomato, lettuce and Italian dressing. And we can confirm that it is great, indeed.

The muffuletta ($ 12.95) at Free Man Cajun Café & Lounge is something special. Just make sure you are hungry when you order it. A whole, once assembled, is the size of a human head. The bread is solid enough to stay crisp, despite the moist olive salad. And the sandwich is believed to improve as the flavors blend together, so do yourself a favor and consider ordering an extra one for the next day.

Brown Bag Provisions was voted on by the Observer as the Best Sandwich Place for 2021. And we can say that Charles Pastrami ($ 13) is food porn on Instagram. The good news is, it tastes as good as it looks. They brine the meat for seven days with brown sugar, mustard, salt, juniper, cumin, fennel, garlic and pepper. It is then rubbed with spices, smoked, and then vacuum-cooked for two days. They glaze it with miso and serve it in a traditional Ruben style over marbled rye, topped with horseradish pickles, Swiss cheese and old-fashioned mustard.

Top Round has taken the Dallas roast beef sandwich market by storm since it opened a few years ago. Their sandwiches are served daily with USDA Choice Top Round slowly roasted and the juice is homemade. They have five options on their menu, but because we’re gluttonous for punishment and love the nose hair buckling effect of horseradish, we’re leaning towards the Horse and hole or the Beef on Weck.
