Cheap Eats: Best Sandwiches in Philadelphia

Our favorite meals between sliced bread.

It’s hard to beat the sandwich.

It’s shareable, filling, and usually less than $10 bucks. And Philly has always been a tough sandwich town to beat, with our hoagies and roast porks. But it’s more than just business-as-usual between two slices of bread these days: We’re having something of an international sandwich moment. Here are fifteen of the best sandwiches in Philadelphia, from a bangin’ Bolognese to a classic banh mi. And yes, there’s even a better cheesesteak, although this one isn’t like any you’ve tasted before.
