National Sandwich Day is November 3rd, and there’s no better time to pay our respects to the most quintessential meal of all time. 

White bread slathered with PB&J was one of the first meals many of us ever learned to make. And even still, well into adulthood, Americans haven’t lost their love for a simple, delicious, well-made sandwich.

Half of Americans say they eat a sandwich every single day, and honestly, it’s not the least bit surprising. They’re a lunchtime go-to, either made with leftovers from the night before or piled high with fixings from our favorite local deli. Throw some eggs on there, and a sandwich makes a hearty breakfast that’s a perfect way to start the day. Heck - we’ve even opened up the fridge after midnight to throw together a sandwich for a late-night snack. 

There are hundreds of types of sandwiches out there to appease every palate under the sun, no matter what time of day or what you’re craving. 


To celebrate National Sandwich Day, the company Lawn Love put together a list of the Best Cities for Sandwich Lovers in the United States. To make their determinations, Lawn Love looked at each city’s number of high-quality sandwich shops and the number of google searches for all things sandwich-related. 

Of course, Buffalo, New York was obviously included in Lawn Love’s list. We sure do love our sandwiches here in the Queen City, but anyone from Western New York knows that there’s one iconic sandwich that makes our city stand out above the rest.

Famous Dish Makes Buffalo One Of The US's Best Cities For Sandwiches

Plenty of cities in the US have famous sandwiches they’re known for. When you’re in Philadelphia, you’ve gotta grab a cheesesteak. In Chicago, an Italian beef sammie is a must-try. Nashville is known for its hot chicken, and New Jersey has their pork rolls. 

But when you think of sandwiches in Buffalo, New York, your mind immediately goes to the famous beef on weck


Invented and perfected in Buffalo, that iconic carved roast beef on a kimmelweck roll with a side of drippy aus jus was enough to propel Buffalo into one of the top cities for sandwiches in the entire country. 

Even Anthony Bourdain sang the praises of the delicious beef on weck, calling it a "tasty little masterpiece."

We, of course, wholeheartedly agree.

This National Sandwich Day, celebrate by stopping by one of these popular Western New York spots to enjoy one of Buffalo’s most famous cuisines - the legendary beef on weck.
