Ranging from traditional basics to the truly unique, we’ve found 48 of the best things to happen to the 918 since sliced bread. Are you ready to revisit that most classic of American food groups – the sandwich?
Ah, the sandwich. Ever since the Middle Ages, when John Montagu, the fourth Earl of Sandwich, supposedly invented a quick, neat way to eat without leaving the gambling table, we’ve had a love affair with this delectable, handheld meal. And though it was once only popular with aristocrats who could afford to lose money playing cards, the sandwich has since become one of the most egalitarian and middle-class lunches of all time.
In truth, the sandwich in its many forms has probably existed ever since humans could slide meat and cheese between slices of bread. It has even been taken to court, specifically a court in Boston, where it was ruled that the legal definition of “sandwich” in that jurisdiction would require slices of bread to be part of the meal. Who knew a simple lunch meal could be so complex?
The sandwich in its many forms is ever popular as a lunch option for worker bees, students, and others who are on the go. In an ever-increasing handsfree world, it’s still the go-to meal for someone with a free hand. And you can choose from all kinds of sandwiches, breads, fillings and more in just about every corner of Green Country.
That said, here’s our list of 48 fantastic places around Green Country where you can grab some meat, cheese and bread and hit the road, having conquered your royal appetite.
