United Nations of Sandwiches

Craving a sandwich you used to enjoy regularly, but having a hard time finding it in the Triangle? You might just strike sandwich gold at one of these eateries.

(Note: Burgers, which many might rightfully call the quintessential American sandwich, are not included here. They deserve, and are frequently afforded, a list of their own.)
