Best Sandwich (not burger)

1st Place: Acoustic Café
2nd Place: Mancino’s
3rd Place: Nelson Cheese Factory

For the fifth year in a row, Acoustic Café (505 S. Barstow St., Eau Claire) served its three sizes of hot hoagies and pita sandwiches right into our hearts. That warm, melted cheese and special sauce get us drooling for more. Second-place Mancino’s (two Eau Claire locations, 809 W. Clairemont Ave. and 4056 Commonwealth Ave.) offers 30 different kinds of grinders in three sizes so you’re sure to find the perfect sandwich to satisfy your craving. And in third place, Eau Claire staple Nelson Cheese Factory (1636 Harding Ave., Eau Claire) serves more than a dozen hot and cold sandwiches, all made to order with fresh veggies. — Amanda Foxcroft
