Sandwiches are great for taming those hunger pangs, and there are some pretty awesome sandwiches in Yakima to eat before you die. I'm tired of boring sandwiches. I want a sandwich that is so good, it makes me act crazy in a restaurant!


What I'm looking for in a sandwich is something like the yummiest of tortas, wraps (yes, they count as a sandwich), and gourmet eats. It is my aim to have your mouth salivating before you read the end of this article.

P.S. There’s no Scooby Doo or Dagwood sandwiches on the menus here in Yakima.


There are, however, at least 20 delicious sandwiches in Yakima that even Gordon Ramsay would love to try, except for the Idiot ones!
