Best Corned Beef Sandwich

Goodman's Sandwich Inn

In a town like Cleveland, where mile-high corned beef sandwiches are considered a birthright, loyalty to a particular provider can be fierce. Blessed with no shortage of quality candidates, local CB fans take pleasure in debating the finer points of fat and meat, salt and seed, height and weight. Pound for pound, the best sandwich going is the one served at Goodman's Sandwich Inn. To pull off a sandwich built from thick, hand-sliced beef, as Goodman's has been doing for eons, one must start with ultra-tender meat. The perfect mix of lean and well-marbled slices, these gut-busters are an absolute joy to eat. (5164 Pearl Rd., 216.398.6885) — Trattner
