Website names the 10 best sandwich spots in Maine

The website Only In Your State, which ranks out shareable content like listicles and photo galleries with local appeal, posted its list of the 10 best sandwich joints in Maine.

The site covered most every corner of the state in its search for the best sandwiches, and refreshingly, only one — Yancy’s Restaurant in Calais — was highlighted for its lobster rolls.

Here are a few of the other eateries and the signature sandwiches Only In Your State said were among Maine’s best, along with excerpts from the website’s original list:

  • The Coffee Pot in Bangor: “You’ll know it’s the original if it includes green peppers, onions, tomatoes, seasonings, and toppings that include salami, ham, turkey, roast beef, tuna or egg salad, cheese and pickles.”
  • Po’ Boy & Pickles in Portland: “Stop in and try a chicken fried pork po’ boy with sambal honey and roasted peppers & onions. Or, choose just about anything on a biscuit and you can’t go wrong.”
  • Saco Island Deli in Saco: “The specials board changes daily and ranges from ‘The Stuffed Bird Panini’ with antibiotic-free turkey breast and stuffing, on local Italian bread to the more recent ‘Vermonter,’ featuring cheese, apples and a delicious croissant.”
  • The Shed BBQ in Rangeley: “You can’t go wrong with the pulled pork or beef brisket sandwiches.”

The larger Only In Your State list of 10 includes sandwich stops in Winslow, Bar Harbor, Pownal, Brunswick and Rockland. Click here to see them all.
