The Great American Sandwich Guide is Now Mobile!

Spot 5 sandwiches to earn the badge!The next time you’re in San Francisco, New York City, Los Angeles or Chicago you won’t have to guess where to go for a good sandwich. That’s because mobile city-specific editions of my Great American Sandwich Guide for those four cities have just launched on the Foodspotting app!

Whenever I visit a new restaurant, I love to preview the menu items on Foodspotting via photos that others have shared. Now that my Great American Sandwich Guide is loaded onto Foodspotting all you have to do is open the app on your iPhone or Android device and you’ll have easy access to the top sandwich picks in SF, NYC, LA or Chicago from Panini Happy readers and other local sandwich fans.

Read on for the simple steps to access the new mobile guides. (NOTE: You can still always find the full guide covering cities nationwide right here on Panini Happy).
