It's hard to beat a sandwich. They're easy to eat on the go and can be made to match any craving — from sweet and gooey Nutella and banana to a full-on Italian-style sammie with all the fixins. And while we're all about a BYO sammie, it's way more fun to take your tastebuds on the road and let the country's sandwich masters feed you. Wherever you go in the U.S., you'll find delicious offerings just waiting to be eaten. From melty, cheesy creations to sandwiches stacked high with deli meat or veggies on top of veggies — it's hard to go wrong. 

Luckily for sandwich lovers everywhere, our friends at Yelp were able to identify the best sandwich spots in every state in 2021. To determine the best of the best, they identified businesses in the sandwiches category that had lots of reviews mentioning "sandwich," then ranked those spots using several factors — including the total volume and ratings of reviews mentioning "sandwich." 

"This is an all-time list of the best sandwich spots in every state, according to Yelp. The list includes everything from Italian subs like the Lucky Luciano at Tony's Italian Delicatessen in Texas to the Thai chicken meatball sandwich on a bao bun at Ekiben in Maryland," Tara Lewis, Yelp's trend expert, told Travel + Leisure by e-mail.
