Richman's top three included the roast pork from DiNic's; the Yardbird from Slow’s in Detroit, which has smoked chicken breast drenched in mustard sauce, tossed with sauteed mushrooms and slathered with cheddar cheese, piled with bacon; and a chicken conquistador sandwich at Zunzi's in Savannah, Ga., which is basically chicken, Italian dressing, and "secret sauce" along with tomatoes and lettuce on a baguette.I don't believe he considered the Denny's ("Now Serving Black People, Because The Courts Say We Have To") offering where they stuffed mozzarella sticks inside a grilled cheese sandwich, however.
Other finalists looked good, too: a shrimp po’ boy from Domilise's in New Orleans; Al’s Beef in Chicago; the CSS Virginia sandwich at the Black Sheep diner in Richmond, Va.; a roast beef sandwich piled with fries and homemade bechamel sauce from the Big-Ass Sandwiches food truck in Portland, Ore.; an El Toro BBQ sandwich from Phil’s BBQ in San Diego; the seared beef tongue sandwich from the Noble Pig in Austin, Texas; and the lobster roll at the Galley Restaurant & Pub in Naples, Maine.
