11 Gooey Sandwiches that Will Warm Your Soul with the Pictures to Prove it

Eleven is a skinny list. There are actually about 20 great hot sandwiches in Dallas ... well, maybe 100. Thing is, you can't really screw up rich butter smeared over fresh bread, then grilled with gooey cheese. Here are some to use as inspiration on this chilly day.

Grilled Cheese with Roasted Pork at The Common Table (photo above)
We can think of any number of beers that could be properly paired with this hearty sandwich. The most popular dish at this spot starts with toasted crunchiness then slowly moves into a soft bite where roasted pork coalesces with cheddar, provolone and Parmesan. Followed by a swill from any number of local beers, this is a lunch for champions.

The Cubano at International Bakery Cuban Dulceria Carrollton needs hot sandwiches. Thankfully, Cuba has some. Owners Rita and Sara Vasquez are the purveyors of one of the best Cubanos on the city, per Scott Rietz's Best of list: "...they bake the bread right there. It's soft as a cloud, and the hot press toasts the exterior into a thin eggshell of crisp crust that snaps when you bite it."

Grilled Pimento Cheese at Highland Park Pharmacy
For our annual Best of list, Reitz writes: "It's a simple sandwich of soft, melted cheddar the cooks griddle on a press that looks just about as old as as the bar stools that line the counter. A small, yellow flag on the menu points out the variation of the Palm Beach as new, even though it's been there for six years now. Who knew grilled cheese could be so punk rock?"
