10 Iconic Sandwiches From Around the Country That Will Ship Straight to Your Door
From legendary cheese steaks and muffulettas, to towering pastrami on rye and beastly chopped brisket between two buns, you can get some of the country's best sandwiches delivered fresh wherever you live.
In theory, a sandwich is a simple meal. A smattering of vegetables, cheese, and/or meat and condiments between two slices of bread. However, anyone who's slogged through a sub-par turkey club knows there is a vast spectrum when it comes to sandwich quality, and the truly mouthwatering ones are hard to come by.
And then there are a select few sandwiches that are so good that you're willing to travel far just to taste them. But what if we told you didn't have to leave your house to feast on some of the most legendary and heaping sandwiches in the country? It's true. We rounded up some of the most delicious and iconic sandwiches from restaurants around the country that you can get shipped fresh to your door via Goldbelly.
You can get a cheesesteak pretty much everywhere, but you can only get a true Philly cheesesteak in, well, Philly. Or so you'd think. You can actually easily get a true Philly cheesesteak shipped fresh from Philly's Pat's King of Steaks. This pack includes four of them (each is 9-10" long) with your choice of cheese (Whiz, provolone, or American) and "wit" or "wit-out" onions.
The muffuletta sandwich is a New Orleans staple, and there is arguably no better place to get one than Central Grocery, where it was invented. This pack includes two large muffulettas (enough to serve 6-8 people) on 10-inch round and crusty Sicilian sesame loaf bread stuffed with all the deliciously messy signature fillings: ham, salami, provolone, and briny marinated olive salad of Kalamata and green olives with other pickled veggies.
Who says you can't start your day with a piping hot sandwich? No one, because your'e an adult, dammit. And when it comes to breakfast, you really can't beat a Fried Chicken Biscuit Sandwich from North Carolina's Sunrise Biscuit Kitchen. This pack comes with enough 4-inch golden brown spice-flour biscuits and fried chicken breasts to make 8, 12, 16 sandwiches (your choice).
If this photo alone of Pastrami Queen's iconic sandwich isn't enough to convince you to order one of these kits immediately, maybe a hint at what comes in the box from the legendary New York deli will win you over. Each pack comes with two pounds sliced pastrami, 16 slices of Orwashers rye bread (seeded or unseeded), eight pickles (4 half-sour, 4 sour), and 8 ounces of New York deli mustard.
Italian beef sandwiches are as Chicago as deep dish pizza and brutally windy winters, and now you can get everything you need to make some of the best around at home.

New Jersey-style Sloppy Joes are nothing like the sauce-soaked spiced ground beef between two buns you might be picturing in your head, but they are nonetheless epically delicious, and the Milburn Deli makes the best. This pack includes four of its signature triple-decker Joes complete with choice of meat, Swiss cheese, coleslaw, and house made Russian dressing all on sourdough rye. Plus, as a bonus, you'll also get four bottles of Milburn Deli's homemade iced tea.
Piping hot, melt-in-your-mouth Texas brisket, anyone? This pack comes with everything you'll need to make eight of Louis Mueller's famous chopped brisket sandwiches at home: three pounds Louie Mueller chopped beef, eight buns, and two bottles of BBQ sauce. Just to be clear, though, this is a BYO Tums situation.
Bar Bill Tavern has been a Western New York institution for decades, and for much of that time its incredible beef on weck sandwich was the only thing on its food menu. Fast forward to 2020, and while the Bar Bill Tavern's menu has expanded significantly, the beef on weck is still what many folks stop in for. This kit comes with everything you'll need to recreate four of them right at home: 40 ounces of fresh sliced roast beef, 4 fresh baked kimmelweck rolls (round rolls coated in salt crystals and caraway seeds), 8 ounces of horseradish, and 16 ounces of au jus.

If you're looking to go to town on a sandwich bigger than your face, please direct your attention to these beastly pork tenderloin sandwiches from Nick's Kitchen in Huntington, Indiana.

This pack gets you everything you need to create Nick's signature dish (eight of them, actually), including eight pieces of 8-inch fried pork tenderloin, eight buns, pickles, onions, mayonnaise, and mustard.
