Ultimate Philly Sandwich Bracket: The Elite Eight

This group of sandos would basically crush any other city’s offerings — but there are still important decisions to be made.

Philadelphia, take a moment to bask in the glory that is the quarter-finals in the Ultimate Philly Sandwich Bracket. After tallying votes from our online poll combined with those cast at the Franklin’s Science After Hours event last week, we could stop right here — this Elite Eight would basically crush any other city’s offerings.

But we can’t stop yet, because there are more decisions to be made. Important decisions. Can John’s Roast Pork knock off consistently highest vote-getter DiNic’s? (Can anyone, for that matter?) What of the new-school/old-school battle between FedNuts fried chix and McNally’s Schmitter? Then there’s the question about the fans who came out in droves for both Ricci’s and Sarcone’s on the hoagie side, and the situation that pits Chickie’s veg hoagie against the always-popular Mama’s falafel.

To make sure your favorite between-bread creations make it through, cast your votes below and tell your friends to follow suit. Be sure to make your choices carefully, because you’ll determine who gets to throw down in our live Final Four tasting next week.
