    I really, really like that you didn’t idolize Katz deli and criticized it from an unbiased standpoint. From what I’ve seen, their customer service is so oddly rude and snood. I don’t understand how that can appeal to anyone. If you’re paying that much for a sandwich, you should be treated so much better. Having to show your drivers license to get a sandwich is madness.

    Angelo's have been getting a lot of raves for one reason: _they make their own bread for the sandwich_ . This is unlike many other cheesesteak places in Philadelphia, which uses the Amoroso Bakery roll.
    (In fact, Angelo's have been getting a lot of traffic not only for their outstanding cheesesteak sandwich, but also (arguably) the best pizza in Philadelphia, a pizza that can compare with the best in New York City.)

    As a New Yorker, Katz deli is a tourist trap. I will not pay $26 for a damn sandwich. If it spiked up to $35, it just solidifies why I wouldn't go back. We got some Italian heroes a fraction of the price for 2x the size and quality. Chopped cheese, Jewish deli meat sandwiches are not justified. You're the first guy in any media I've seen that gives an accurate depiction of Katz Deli.

    Made reubens one time and realized we didn’t have any sauerkraut. We used kimchi instead.
    Definitely not for everyone but my wife refuses to eat them without kimchi now.

      Sauerkraut and kimchi are essentially the same. Both are fermented cabage, it's just different bactaria and spices. Of course the flavor of both are very different. It's like they had the same idea on 2 different sides of the world.

    Katz comments about the reuben are totally fair. Price and wait aside, I've always thought that their corned beef was always drier and had subpar seasoning in general, especially compared to their pastrami. There is literally no reason to get their corned beef if you can just get the pastrami.

    Urban legend has it that the Italian Beef started out as wedding food during the Great Depression. When you soak the bread in the au jus, it satisfies like meat. Wet is thus the proper way to eat this sandwich.
    The best way to enjoy this sandwich is to order it with a side salad instead of fries. Eat the sandwich (wet with peppers of your choice) directly over the salad. Whatever falls into the salad will make it taste better.
    Portillos got sold to a corporation that reduced portion sizes. Don't go there for Italian beef.
    It's normal for sweet peppers to be mushy. They are cooked in the same au jus as the beef.

    I’m from Chicago, and while I will say Al’s was much better back in the day (like prior to the pandemic), there are other spots in the city that were even better than the ones you mentioned. The best italian beef of all time was at a place called Fast Track on West Lake street. It closed during the pandemic unfortunately, but the building is still there and every true Chicagoan is heartbroken that it’s gone. There’s also D’amato’s Bakery, which is not as well known for the italian beef (I go there for their incredible italian cookies) but they have the best bread and the best quality ingredients in the city.
    Very happy to see you paying a visit to the same Al’s Beef in the parking lot of my old high school on Taylor, across the street from the iconic Mario’s Italian Ice. Brings back lots of great memories ❤

At first, I was worried you'd just go to The Columbia and I was sad, their Cuban food is really good there but it's not the spot for a to-go sandwich like that. La Segunda is the GOAT and the reason it was least voted is because it's more of a local secret than a flashy Michelin-recognized place in Miami. There are actually a bunch of other great Cuban sandwiches in Tampa, the TRUE home of the Cuban, but Segunda is the measure for sure.

    There used to be a spot in Chicago called Susie’s, they used Italian beef meat to make the Philly, and used sour cream/mayo sauce, it was so damn good. They closed down a few years ago, a north side Chicago landmark gone forever. The order was a Philly, cheese fries in a tortilla bowl, and a baboon milk shake with extra Oreos. Iykyk

    Glad to see you knew where to correctly find the best form of the Reuben. I've had New York Deli style, and it just doesn't hold up to the way Omaha does it with everything cooked fresh and well seasoned. Crescent Moon is decent and boasts the original recipe, but it probably doesn't even make the top 5 in Omaha (kind of like Katz's in NYC where the popularity and familiarity always wins with polls, but the actual sandwich is done better elsewhere)

    The restaurant is no longer open but it was called The Silver Palm in Chicago; a converted railcar. Bourdain filmed an episode of "No Reservations" there. He ordered the Three Little Pigs sandwich which he proclaimed as the greatest sandwich in America. The sandwich is now in limbo for a restaurant to put on the menu.
    Breaded pork cutlet, smoked ham, 2 strips of bacon, melted gruyere, 2 sunnyside up eggs and onion rings on a toasted bun. I had my chef make one and it was a decadent as it appeared on television.

    The thing is, the recipe and origin of the Cubano is heavily debated where are you have Miami style or Tampa style. Same thing with the Poboys, Reubens, all these sandwiches. You can’t just go to one city and say they have the best of one particular sandwich without all those variations. Best po’boy & Cubano I ever had were both in NC. Best “Chicago style” pizza I had was in NYC.
