Grand Rapids is jam packed with great sandwiches. In fact, there are so many that an entire competition (Grandwich) was created to highlight some of the city’s best. We couldn’t narrow it down to just one, so here is a list of our top 5 favorite spots to grab deli-cious sandwich in GR!

Noted by many to be the best deli in GR, Schnitz Deli takes the art of sandwich making very seriously. Not only do they have some of the best sandwiches in town, but when it comes to customer service, they should win some sort of medal. Speaking of medals, Schnitz Bakery (located next door) is to thank for all the mouth watering fresh bread that take these sandwiches to the next level.
