The 10 Best Sandwiches in Denver

The Frankie from Salt & Grinder


We know what you're thinking. How could we possibly narrow down a list to just ten epic sammies in the Mile High City? It was hard, a real test, but someone had to do it so that YOU can make sure to cross these bad boys off your buttie bucket list.

While we probably left out a couple fan-favorites (feel free to scold us in the comments below), here are our 10 favorite sandwiches, in no particular order, in Denver and where you can get 'em. Is it lunch time yet?

What did we miss? Let us know in the comments!  

Disclaimer: For this list, we did not consider Burgers, Gryos, or Arepas to be part of the 'sandwich' family. We therefore excluded them from this list but do find those things to be very, very delicious as well.


  • Checked to see if Parsley was on the list. It’s legit

  • Any sandwich from Brider, but especially their meatball or French dip!!

  • Fried chicken sandwich at Ad Hominem, 43 W 9th in Denver.

  • The Local and The Alaskan at Marczyk’s!
