Today October 9th is Submarine, Grinder, Hoagie, Hero Day or should we just call it Big Sandwich Day? Below are the top five places to eat a great sandwich today.

Submarine, Grinder, Hoagie & Hero: Top 5 Spots in the U.S.

A) Aaron’s DeliCharleston, South Carolina – This place serves a wide variety of seafood Po’boys on baked Hoagie Buns.  If seafood is not your thing, go for the “Blackbeard” 12 oz Homemade Meatloaf on a Hoagie Roll with gravy and onions.

B)  Paseo: Seattle, Washington – This small establishment has no sign and takes no credit.  They will give you Caribbean Roast Pork Shoulder on a Baguette with Spicy Aioli, fresh Cilantro, caramelized onions and pickled jalapenos. So good will make you forget about Little Havana.

C)  Soda & SwineSan Diego, California – This shrine to the meatball and unique carbonated drinks is a must next time you’re headed towards Tijuana.  Your best bets are the Swine with Smoked Pork, Chipotle, and Pepperjack or the Hen with Chicken, Pesto, and Provolone.

D)  Mangialardo & SonsWashington, D.C. – One day back in the 70’s two FBI Agents came into this Mom & Pop Shop and demanded something special.  Antonio Mangialardo whipped up an Italian Sub piled high with ham, salami, mortadella, pepperoni, provolone, and fontina. When word of this sandwich spread throughout the Justice Department requests for it ran rampant. With all these Feds around it was easy to come up with a name for this sandwich – “The G-Man.”

E) Nardelli’s Grinder ShoppeWaterbury, Connecticut – With multiple locations in Connecticut, they have been serving Grinder’s since 1922.  Try the Prosciutto Hot Pepper Chicken Grinder with the works.  Good luck finishing it.
