Jo's Gather’n Place’s Pork Tenderloin

Everybody loves a local dive bar and the friendly folks at Jo’s have a hit on their hands with their pork tenderloin sandwich. It’s no frills bar food that hits the spot. A perfectly seasoned and fried pork tenderloin served on a grilled bun with lettuce, tomato, onion and mayo. Add crinkle-cut fries for a buck. 

Lindberg Tavern’s Grilled Cheese 


Grilled Cheese at Lindberg's Tavern in Springfield, Missouri.

A visit to historic Lindberg’s Tavern on Springfield’s historic C-Street is a unique experience in and of itself. Then you try the food! The owners at Lindberg’s have crafted a menu that takes bar food to the next level and their grilled cheese is out of this world. Creamy muenster cheese and sweet onion jam served on sour dough bread with tomato soup for dipping. Enough said. 

Nearly Famous Deli & Pasta House’s Egg Salad Sandwich


Egg Salad Sandwich at Nearly Famous Deli & Pasta House in Springfield, Missouri.

This sandwich has become nearly as famous as the restaurant itself, which has been serving Italian food and fresh deli items in Springfield since the late 1970s. Their homemade egg salad is tucked between two pieces of whole wheat bread and served with tomato soup or a salad for an additional charge. Plan accordingly as it’s only offered on Fridays, Saturdays and Mondays. 

Neighbor’s Mill Bakery & Café’s French Dip 


French Dip at Neighbor's Mill Bakery & Café in Springfield, Missouri.

This isn’t your traditional French Dip on French bread but Neighborhood’s Mill's version on their handcrafted bread has plenty of followers. Tender roast beef with pepper jack cheese is stacked on Crusty Asiago Cheese & Cracked Black Pepper bread. Served with au jus for dipping, chips and a pickle spear. 

Penn Station East Coast Subs’ Philadelphia Cheesesteak

You don’t have to travel to the City of Brotherly Love to taste one of its most iconic sandwiches. Head over to Penn Station in Springfield and grab a Philadelphia Cheesesteak piled high with 100% U.S.D.A Choice Steak, provolone cheese and your choice of toppings. 

Pho Kim’s BM1: Banh Mi Thit Nguoi 


BM1 at Pho Kim's in Springfield, Missouri.

When you think of Vietnamese food, a sandwich may not be the first thing that pops into your mind, but Vietnamese-style sandwiches are an exciting and unique alternative to the traditional sandwich. The BM1 is a French baguette with pate, roasted pork, Vietnamese ham, mayonnaise, daikon, pickled carrot, cucumber and cilantro. 

Pancho’s Torta
