Ten Favorite Metro Phoenix Sandwiches

Pork Tenderloin Banh Mi @ House of Tricks
Don't get us wrong -- we love our cheap banh mi as much as the next guy -- but we just can't turn down House of Tricks' gourmet take on the classic. A crusty French baguette is filled with Asian barbecued pork tenderloin, Napa cabbage, julienned jalapenos, pickled carrots, onion, cilantro, and a spicy Sriracha aioli. It's the most expensive sandwich on our list but the flavors and the overall lunch time experience make it worth every penny of its $12 price tag.

Porcellino @ Cibo
Okay, okay, most people don't go to an Italian joint for a pulled pork sandwich but maybe they should start. Cibo's lunch menu is teeming with amazing sandwiches, including a superb meatball sandwich and a breaded eggplant parmesan that has made us question why we even need to eat meat, but the one the keeps us coming back is the Porcellino. Tangy BBQ sauce engulfs tender shredded pork and creamy fontina cheese ties the whole thing together on Cibo's always perfect wood fired bread. If they had this sandwich on the dinner menu, we'd probably skip the pizza and go straight for this sandwich. (Or maybe they should make this sandwich into a pizza. Hint, hint.)

The Duck and Decanter's Nooner and D.A.M. sandwich!!  CANNOT BE BEAT!  D&D has probably been around a lot longer than any of these newbies mentioned - #realdealPHX #oldschoolPHX #classy

For tuna lovers, I've yet to find an Albacore Tuna Sandwich better than the Duck & Decanter! (get it on kaiser)

You forgot a few but most importantly you forgot Baratin where some of the best sandwiches come out that teeny kitchen.

There's not a single thing slider-y about the sliders at Chompie's. A slider is a small hamburger grilled over onions. They're called sliders because they're so greasy they slide down your throat. Anything else is just a dinky sandwich.

the pastrami at nocawich blows Miracle Mile out of the water.

 @misskitty324 It's the water chestnuts they add for crunch instead of celery. What a fantastic sandwich! I like it on the multi-grain with sprouts.
