    Note: This is a Food Network list, so expect it to be horribly bias toward places it's featured on it's shows and very poorly researched.

    http://blog.foodnetwork.com/fn-dish/2012/08/50-states-50-sandwiches/

    For myself, cheddar, Ham (though this is very variable), Rye and 4+ times a week.

    So Louisiana's sammich is something called an Oyster Loaf.....

    I've never heard of it, or that restaurant.

    In their defense however, I've only lived here for 34 years and only been to New Orleans several hundred times....

    How the fuck is Jack... specifically Pepper Jack... not an option? That said, American and Chedder cheeses are exponentially better than swiss and provolone.

    Otherwise, I agree with the results... minus the fact that my go-to bread is a nice dutch crunch.

    I live in California but my favorite sandwiches are all back-east specialties. Love me a good Reuben.

    I know it's a French sandwich, but I always think of a Monte Cristo as being a good California sandwich and I'll order it if I see it on a menu because it's so rare to find.

    On a side note, has anyone else seen Adam Richman's Best Sandwich In America series on the Travel Channel?

    No way a cheese steak lost to a Keilbasi and cheese in PA., an Italian sub beat the Sligo from Kelly's Tavern in Belmar or a "Fat _______" from the grease trucks at Rutgers in NJ., or the pork chop sandwich or Bison steak sandwich from Butte MT. Fucking Flawed.

    For me, its cheddar, ham, (sometimes with salami), country white or honey heat 2x a week.

    I like provolone, but I don't see how it beat out cheddar and American either.

    PA's a kielbasa and cheese sandwich? Bullshit.

    At least they got NJ right.

    Can't beat a hoagie from the White House in A/C.

    Delaware is a crab cake? The Bobbie from Caprioti's is the reason Wawa sells those turkey sandwiches. This list is shit.

    Never heard of it. If I had to guess, maybe the plain bologna and cheese on white bread for Kansas. Nothing fancy here, it's against the law.

    The Rueben sammich; originated in Omaha and won a national sammich contest in the 50's. Some hacks try to claim they invented it in NYC, but nobody ever heard of the sammich until it won.

    For California in terms of fame, goodness and locality-identification I say an In-N-Out double-double.

    They couldn't make that list more wrong if they tried. I'm not sure they didn't try.

    Never even heard of the Yardbird Sandwich. In Michigan, my favorite is a steak sandwich from Big Johns Steak and Onion.

    Current favorite from a National chain is Arby's Bacon Sandwich. It's amazing how much bacon is in it.

    Before that it was Wendy's Pretzel Burger.
