Local sandwich love runs wide and deep, judging by the impassioned responses we received when we asked Free Press readers to help us find metro Detroit's best-tasting meals between sliced bread.
Our hunt began after Esquire went in search of the best sandwiches in America and found two in our own backyard: a boisterous barbecued brisket at Zingerman's Deli in Ann Arbor and a wonderful grilled-three-cheese at Café Muse in Royal Oak.
They were indeed delicious, but what about all the others?
We knew scores had been overlooked. And besides, the real experts -- metro Detroit sandwich lovers -- hadn't been heard.
We followed your leads and our own experiences and ate and ate ... and ATE until we couldn't eat another bite. Enough, already!
Here are our picks for the best in metro Detroit -- with a few on the side. It's proudly unscientific, unranked and incomplete.
