There are 741 sandwich shops in Chicago. Feeling overwhelmed? MostBest knows the Top 3.
There’s nothing better than a good sandwich. From their portability to their price, sandwiches are an easy way to fill up and knock out a few of the food groups.
Just a few years ago, J.P. Graziano’s was a small grocery store that sold imported Italian delicacies. Then the owner decided to try his hand at sandwiches—and boy are we glad he did! Stack your sandwich with meats, cheeses, and veggies to your heart’s content, because these ingredients are incredibly fresh.
They don’t just put any old lettuce on your sandwich—they chop it and dress it in vinegar for extra taste while keeping the crunch. You can’t pass up a fine creation from J.P. Graziano’s.

PUBLICAN QUALITY MEATS
Publican Quality Meats is much more than a butcher shop—it also happens to sell some of the most incredible sandwiches in the Chicago area. They source all of their meats locally and carefully, then age and cure them in their basement kitchen. On top of that, they bake their bread fresh daily.
People come to this shop multiple times a week because the menu is constantly rotating—you don’t want to miss out on PQM!

Cemitas Puebla is a family-owned establishment with an emphasis on Poblano cuisine and hefty sandwiches. This spot takes their sandwiches extremely seriously, which is why they were featured on the Food Network’s ‘Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.’ They bake their bread fresh every day and coat it with sesame seeds, just as the traditional recipe passed down from Puebla, Mexico dictates.
If you’re craving flavor and lots of it, head to Cemitas Puebla.
