There is nothing more satisfying than a huge, fresh sandwich. Whether it’s a plain grilled cheese or a sandwich loaded with an array of different ingredients, you really can’t go wrong. Portland restaurants are always trying to stay current and come up with innovative food ideas, even when it comes to sandwiches. Here is a list of some of the best sandwich shops in Portland.
1. Shut Up and Eat - SE Portland
If you are looking for the perfect sandwich, no matter what kind, this is the place to go. With its perfectly melted cheese topping and huge proportions, Shut Up and Eat makes it far too easy to live up to the name.
2. Bunk - Multiple Locations
If you live in Portland, then you're probably noticing that Bunk restaurants are popping up all over town (and actually even in other cities), but very rightfully so. There is no better place for a quick and undoubtedly satisfying sandwich, whether it's a cubano or a meatball sub.
3. Tails & Trotters - NE Portland
Portlanders come here for quality meats, but stay when they realize that this butcher shop serves some of the best food in town. Nothing is better than a perfectly-made Reuben.
4. Lardo - Multiple Locations
Lardo is the place to go for giant, succulent sandwiches that pack a lot of punch. It doesn't get better than the meatball banh mi on a nice crusty roll.
5. Devil's Dill - SE Portland
An entirely underrated sandwich spot is Devil's Dill, located in Portland's Hawthorne District. They serve high-quality sandwiches until 3AM every night. 3AM and high-quality are hardly ever in the same sentence.
6. An Xuyen Bakery - SE Portland
In deep SE Portland, is one of the city's most prized possessions, An Xuyen Bakery. Not only do they have freshly baked bread and desserts, but they make the best banh mi in town (on a freshly baked baguette).
7. Bacchi's Italian Delicatessen
A small tight-knit Italian spot that's relatively new in the Rose City neighborhood, but also a place that people cannot stop talking about. Creating the ideal, traditional Italian sub is an art, and if you're looking for just that, this is the spot.

10. Grilled Cheese Grill - Multiple Locations
You mustn't forget the grilled cheese! Where else to get it than the delicious Grilled Cheese Grill. If you go to the Alberta Street location, you can sit in an old school bus while eating the grilled cheese of your cheesy dreams.
11. Grand Central Bakery - Multiple Locations
The key to constructing the perfect sandwich really starts with the bread. There is no where else in Portland that you should be getting freshly-baked bread from if it's not from Grand Central Bakery. Okay, that's not entirely true, but seriously they have the best bread, which in turn makes some of greatest sandwiches around.
