I asked my fellow Quad Citizens for the best sandwiches available in the Quad Cities and they delivered. My mouth is literally watering as I write this and I can’t wait until my next lunch date! My advice: just start at the top of the list and work your way down. There’s not a single sandwich or establishment on this list that you will regret trying. Sooooo many tasty recommendations!
My mother loves the VandeRueben from the Belgian Village; it has always been one of her favorite sandwiches in the Quad Cities. She was, of course, heartbroken to hear of their closing a few years back.
We grew up out in Blue Grass, Iowa, where it typically took 20 minutes to get into town, and that was to the west side of Davenport. So it took a lot of dedication to drive all the way over to Moline to get one; and when we did, we would always take at least one to-go with us, so we could enjoy one again soon without the drive.
