But regardless of how the ubiquitous sandwiches on this list came to be,
there is one thing that is true for each and every one of them: they are incredibly tasty, they are one of a kind, and they are worth looking for.
When compared to the origins of many other sandwiches, the cheesesteak, which is a staple in Philadelphia,
has a history that is well documented and generally uncontested.
Pat Olivieri, who ran a hot dog stand, is credited with inventing the sandwich during the year 1930.
He did so by placing some shaved beef on the grill in order to make a sandwich.
Pat changed the name of his hot dog shop to Pat's King of Steaks after a cab driver noticed the delectable dish and asked for one.
