Best Sandwiches on Hilton Head Island

We explored all the sandwich shops on Hilton Head to find not only the best, but who serves some of the most famous sandwiches in the area!

Really, is there any better option for lunch than a great sandwich? We don’t think so either!  Recently, we were exploring the most iconic sandwiches ever, from coast to coast, and it inspired us to dive deep into the litany of our favorite restaurants here on Hilton Head. So, below you will find our picks for the best sandwiches on Hilton Head Island.

How We Picked: First, these are the best sandwiches on Hilton Head, not restaurants.  Like all places to grab a bite to eat, some of them have rude college kids working, lazy servers or a lackluster decor, but that is not what we’re judging here. We looked solely at how good the sandwich was. 

So, we took our list of The Most Iconic Sandwiches of all Time and tried to see if we could find a great example right here in our own backyard. This is what we came up with!

Gruby’s New York Deli – The Broadway: beef tongue (remember the mayor), turkey, coleslaw, Russian dressing on rye. Now, if they would only cut it into squares. But, I’ll give them some slack as they made the list twice.
