5611 Maple Ave
Dallas, TX

What, you've never had a pambazo? Time to reevaluate all your life choices up to this point. This oblong-shaped torta is stuffed with chorizo, potatoes, avocado, shredded lettuce and tangy crema, and the bun is completely slathered in guajillo chile sauce. There are rolls of paper towels at each table for a reason — this sandwich is definitely a delicious mess.

Like most everything at Jonathon’s, the club sandwich is outrageous and decadent and unreasonable in the best way possible.

Call the restaurant to order takeout.

The torta is the unsung hero of the taco stand, and you can take yours to-go at Del Sur in Oak Cliff. Stuff a freshly baked sandwich roll with carnitas, barbacoa, asada, chicken, al pastor, or cochinita pibil, or go all out with the La Cubana, a hulking sandwich that combines roasted pork, al pastor, ham, Oaxaca cheese and grilled onions.

5. TJ's Seafood Market

4212 Oak Lawn Ave
Dallas, TX 75219

The best lobster roll in Dallas is a hotly debated issue, but TJ's is top-notch: A ridiculously generous portion of huge lobster chunks on an eggy, custom-baked challah bun from Addison's La Spiga bakery, drizzled with lemon thyme-infused butter. Order either for takeout or delivery via Chownow.

6. Sandwich Hag

Visit Website

Sandwich Hag serves traditional Vietnamese banh mi with ingredients made from scratch, alongside other specialties like yellow curry, fresh spring rolls and more inside its tiny kitchen. The restaurant has also adapted well during the COVID-19 era, with its completely touchless online ordering and pre-payment system and a walk-up window for pickup. Note: online orders are required.

7. East Hampton Sandwich Co.

6912 Snider Plz
Dallas, TX 75205

This Dallas-born chain of sandwich shops servess a luxe Hamptons vibe and serious sandwiches. Try the lobster grilled cheese, a melty, rich sandwich that's perfect for an indulgent lunch, or perhaps East Hampton’s take on a New York-style reuben.

8. Pecan Lodge

2702 Main St
Dallas, TX 75226

Instead of ordering brisket by the pound at this Deep Ellum staple, consider the Pitmaster sandwich. That same luscious bsmoked beef is stacked on top of a fluffy bun along with smoky pulled pork and housemade sausage, then topped with slaw, fresh sliced jalapenos and tangy house barbecue sauce. Pecan Lodge opened up their patio back in July and now that the weather’s cooled down, it’s pretty much perfect.

9. Uncle Uber's Sammich Shop

Chick-fil-A might lay claim to inventing the chicken sandwich, but Uncle Uber's has perfected it. The grilled version manages to be exponentially more delicious than grilled chicken anything has a right to be, especially when avocado is added.

10. Shug's Bagels

Dallas, TX 75205

More than just a bagel shop, Shug’s offers lox-and-cream cheese sandwiches, egg-and-bacon sandwiches and even crispy chicken cutlet sandwiches, all on their signature New York-style boiled bagels. Don’t sleep on the beet-cured lox sandwich on an egg bagel.

4901 Bryan St.
Dallas, TX 75206
(214) 823-6180
Visit Website

Everyone has their favorite sandwich at Jimmy's, but the piece de resistance is arguably the prosciutto panino: Thinly sliced prosciutto layered with thick slices of freshly pulled mozzarella, flavorful juicy tomatoes, and fresh shreds of basil on a giant crusty roll. (Bonus: This thing is easily big enough for three or four meals, depending on your appetite — and it's a mere $6.99.) NOTE: for the time being, Jimmy’s is only offering pre-made sandwiches, no made-to-order or hot sandwiches. Pre-ordering, in-store and curbside pickup is on offer Monday through Friday by emailing products@jimmysfoodstore.com at least 24 hours in advance.

Village’s Boulangerie on Lower Greenville also serves up sandwiches, and their ham-and-cheese rendition is what the French call le fantastique. Generously slathered from end to end in butter, their baked-in-house baguette would on its own be a delicacy. But with ham and cheese joining the soiree, well, suddenly it becomes ethereal.

14. The Corner Market

Copy Link
3426 Greenville Ave
Dallas, TX 75206
(214) 826-8283
Visit Website

There is a sensible, heart-healthy, guilt-free lunch choice — say, a green juice or a kale salad — and then there is the Texan: mountains of roast beef, sizable strips of just-out-of-the-grease bacon, and gobs of melted cheddar cheese, all on a hefty ciabatta roll that is basically floating in zesty chipotle mayo. The Texan — aptly named — apologizes not for its flagrant, albeit delicious, indecency. We recommend you snag one to-go and eat it in the privacy of your own home.

15. Goodfriend Package

Copy Link

Just across the street from the original Goodfriend, Goodfriend Package is serving up killer sandwiches piled high with housemade pastrami, cured hams, and other delectable meats. Should you find yourself there during breakfast hours, try the Big Boy, a truly epic sandwich topped with bacon, ham, scrapple, and a rich cheese sauce.
