Call me cheap but I'm not spending 10 bucks for a sandwich.I prefer to go to Aldi for their wide selection of grapes if I'm going to stuff my face,boring but healthy
I guess $12 is out of the question then?

What constitutes a sandwich? If we are opening it up to grinders, I nominate Ted's Cheeseburg Grinder (now called the "Ultimate Burger Grinder", which I believe is also the name of the villain in Santa Claus Is Coming to Town.)

(FWIW, Connecticut also has superior grinders (Hogies, Subs etc.))
Teds is so overrated. Their cheese is fantastic though.

I'm racking my brain on anything really memorable in CT. All I can come up with are meatball and eggplant grinders from a local mom & pop pizza place long closed.

I do know the sandwich which I've had more than any other - the steak tips (Bobby Orr) sandwich at The Fours in Quincy. I lived up there for two years, must've eaten 80-100 of those.

He’d starve in Vermont.
Yeah a couple places in New Haven have bumped it up to $12. It’s a bit steep IMO, but I’m not enough to stop me from getting it. But it will make me get it less.

Same. Seriously!

Well, 215 but give me a few weeks. Or days.

Best is subjective, but I'm partial the chicken cutlet grinder at CJ's in Manchester. There's a small deli right off exit 16 on 95 in Norwalk that is banging too.

My main source of food once I moved off campus. Loved them.

Odd. Also 6'2", but I was a 34 waist when I was 185, with a standard 8" drop when measured for a suit. At 220 my waist was 38 but could squeeze into 36 jeans. 34 would be unthinkable.
Pretty much the same. I vary within a range.

I have old 34-34 Levi’s in the more generous cuts they no longer carry and could wear those.

The pants and shorts I wear most now (Kuhl) are 35 waist.

Probably 36 on the tape if measured for a suit.

Amigos Deli in Danbury for a Cuban. Minus the lettuce and tomato (no idea where that came from??). Sandwich can be a little dry, I think that's a function of the panini press, so I just ask for extra swiss and mustard, best I've found in CT. Roadfood agrees. And super bargain for $5.99

PS - The Cuban at the Fairgrounds during Jazzfest may not be top tier, but its a magnificent hangover breakfast after a sunrise set on Frenchman and a quick nap.....
not pointed at you, just a thought:
interesting times we live in where it seems more people are 'pressing' their sandwishes than are pressing their pants.
turrible.

Small world. I worked at window browns for 2 summers of college back in like 94 and 95. I made hundreds of those french dip. That kitchen was hell (like most) but pumped out not bad pub food.
