Keep Westword Free

Reader: Bread alert! Denver needs a Wawa

After reviewing Carbone's Italian Sausage Deli , Laura Shunk rounded up four more of the town's superlative sandwiches for "Denver's five best spots for sandwiches."

Readers served up their own favorite shops, including Snarf's (a Boulder institution now open in the Spire), Udi's, the Old-Fashioned Italian Deli, Marczyk's Fine Foods and Cook's Fresh Market.

But then there was this from Tom W:

There really are not a lot of good sandwich options in Denver. I think Lucky's on 6th makes a good sandwich, so does Famous Philly Cheese Steaks near Stapleton. What Denver needs is Wawa - nothing great, but always a good sandwich.

And C. Montgomery Burns offered his own baloney sandwich:

Has anyone been to that "McDonalds" restaurant? Their hamburger sandwich is quite excellent.

Have a favorite sandwich in town? Post it below, or add it to the comments at the end of "Denver's five best spots for sandwiches."
