When it comes to food, I'll hop in the car and go anywhere. I'll wait in line, I'll mask up and I'll certainly ditch any kind of diet that I'm following if it means I can have the best of the best.

Luckily, we won't have to go too far from Rockford in order to eat two of the best sandwiches in America.

Cheapism put together a "definitive list of America's best sandwiches" and two of the "best" are in Chicago.

At Publican Quality Meats in Chicago, Tom's Silver Medal is supposed to be one of the best sandwiches in America. According to Uber Eats, a Tom's Silver Medal Sandwich is "Spicy capicola, Lonza cotta, ham, provolone, pickled peppers and piperade and aioli on a hoagie roll. Served with a pickle on the side."

Cheapism on the Tom's Silver Medal Sandwich:

It doesn't just aspire to be an Italian sub, it shows other subs how to be Italian.

Public Quality Meats is temporarily closed in Chicago but when they do reopen is located at 825 West Fulton Market Street.

Of the 48 sandwiches profiled by Cheapism, besides Tom's Silver Medal from Publican, there's one more, the Mr. G from J.P. Graziano Grocery Co. This delicious looking sub was named after the owner's father is called "the daddy of all Chicagoland Italian Subs."

J.P. Graziano says the Mr. G is a "house specialty, sharp imported provolone, hot soppressata, prosciutto di parma, Volpi genoa salami, JPG truffle mustard, balsamic vinaigrette, hot oil, marinated Roman-style artichokes, fresh basil, lettuce with red wine vinegar and oregano."

J.P. Graziano Grocery Co, is located at 901 West Randolph Street in Chicago.

If you could only pick one of the two which would it be? The Mr. G or Tom's Silver Medal?
