The results are in! It was a tight race with 586 votes and 10 reviews among our top three contestants, but beat out the competition in the kick off of our Best Of contest.
The poll was used to weed out the top three contestants from our list of places that make the best sandwich in Norton. In third place was with 166 votes. The second place runner up is with 104 votes.
The Produce Barn made a last push, but it wasn’t quite enough to make the cut, garnering 166 votes and one five-star review.
“The Produce Barn has the best meats in the area,” said Norton Patch user Rosemarie in a five star review she left for the three-in-one store.
McMahon’s has three five-star ratings, with four stars overall. In an attempt to decide the winner, I had the prime rib sandwich. The meat was tender, and the mushrooms and onions succulent. The horseradish sauce could have used more punch though, and you can’t beat the Best Sandwich Shop’s bread.
I was also told to try the Thanksgiving sandwich, sans cranberry sauce since it doesn’t agree with my taste buds. The large sandwich was filled with thick cuts of turkey, tasty stuffing and gravy. The gravy of course made the bread soggy, making it difficult to eat. But this sandwich made McMahon’s worthy as the runner up.
“Excellent food, great prices and extremely friendly staff and owners,” said Jeanine. “You have to try their Thanksgiving Sandwich....hot turkey, stuffing and gravy on a bulkie roll...best around town!”
And then there’s our winner, Best Sandwich Shop, who lives up to its name with three five-star ratings and one four-star. The shop, owned by Mike Sweny, got 36 percent of the votes.
“Some sandwiches that stuck out to me were the Chicken Caeser Sandwich, Chipotle Chicken and Thanksgiving Sandwich to name a few,” said user Bryan Caplan. “First bite: HEAVEN! Seriously, it was like biting into a cloud of juicy Buffalo Chicken. Best part, it wasn't messy. I didn't have sauce all over my hands and face. Also helped that I didn't get it on my shirt since I was on my way to a business meeting after. I planned on saving half for later, but I couldn't help it... I ate the whole thing!”
Best Sandwich Shop is located in the Great Woods plaza located near the Comcast Center. It proudly serves Boar's Head deli products by the pound or in freshly made sandwiches. It also features an ever-changing soup of the day and side dishes, such as coleslaw, macaroni salad and potato salad.
Best Sandwich Shop will be presented with a certificate at a time and date to be determined.
