If you had the opportunity to try some of the Grandwich entries this year and had a favorite you voted for, hopefully it was enough to push that restaurant into the top 10.

Almost 40 participating restaurants created some type of sandwich to be named "the best sandwich in Grand Rapids" and these are the 10 that are advancing into the next round (in alphabetical order):

  1. Black Heron Kitchen & Bar -  “Black Heron Grandwich”
  2. Dad’s Classic Grill-Woodland Mall  - “DC Over Easy”
  3. GP Sports at Amway Grand Hotel  - “GP All Day “ETR” (Every Taste Receptor) Club
  4. Grand Rapids Brewing Company -  “The Hot-Line Beef”
  5. Founders - "The Glutton"
  6. San Chez - "The Handsome Mallard"
  7. Skywalk Family Deli & Catering - “Skywalk’s Michigan Magic Sandwich”
  8. Slows Bar-BQ - "The Situation"
  9. Stella's Lounge - "The Kinsey Lane"
  10. The Bull's Head Tavern - “The Shepard’s Pie Burger”

If you didn't try any of these yet, now is the time! You can see a description of each of the sandwiches here.

A panel of six judges will now visit these 10 restaurants and vote on their favorite sandwiches. A 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winner will be announced on July 28th.
