Your Comprehensive Guide to Sandwiches on the Hill

Our friend Barred in DC has worked (and eaten) hard to bring you an extensive compilation of all the sandwiches you can get around Capitol Hill and environs. He has great information about bars all over DC, so make sure you bookmark him. –Maria Helena Carey

Despite sandwiches being traditionally thought of as exclusively lunch food, and despite the fact that most of the Capitol Hill-area vicinity does not have a huge office crowd, there are many spots that offer sandwiches –from great to meh. Here’s an attempt at a comprehensive directory of area spots with sandwiches (minimum 5 non-burger sandwiches, though an exception for any banh mi on the menu). How many have you tried? Which is your favorite?
