The Iconic Sandwiches of San Diego

Ah, the sandwich…the possibility of greatness between two slices of bread. Though San Diego might be more defined by the fish taco or the burger, this city does have some signature sandwiches that we hold dear.

So, we present a list of The Iconic Sandwiches of San Diego. These entries were voted on by you, nominated through the tipline or championed here at Eater HQ.

If these have one thing in common, it’s that they’re all delicious, and most of them have been in our collective food memory long enough to have reached an iconic status that’s just as much about nostalgia as taste. Sure, there are a few new sandwiches sprinkled in too, but they’ve got enough fans to secure their place as hometown favorites.

The sandwich: “The Triple Threat”. A trifecta of pork stacked on a Kaiser roll from Sadie Rose Bakery: a chicken-fried pork cutlet, slow roasted pulled pork and slices of applewood-smoked bacon, topped with homemade pepperoncini and pickle relish. It could be overkill; it’s not.
