The nation's favorite sandwiches from across the country are available now to ship to Dad's belly for Father's Day. Regional sandwich icons and dad food experts like NYC's Katz's Deli, NOLA's Central Grocery and Jim's Steaks in Philly are packing up their pastrami, Italian deli meats and steak laden with Cheez Whiz so Dads everywhere can devour one of these hometown heroes.

Father's Day is only a week away, which means now's the perfect time to get him an epic feast from one of the nation's most iconic sandwich shops (did someone say Philly cheesesteak?), butchers who serve their black angus steaks to Michelin-starred restaurants or Texas pit masters who have been featured on pretty much every top ten BBQ list imaginable.

Far beyond the quality you can find at your local store, luxurious steaks once reserved exclusively for chefs at Michelin-starred restaurants like The French Laundry and Eleven Madison Park (where Snake River Farms' and Pat LaFrieda's rib eyes are served) make the perfect gift for Dad on Father's Day. We've handpicked the nation's top butchers who expertly hand cut and trim each cut of beef—from Pat LaFrieda's dry-aged NY strip to 100% fullblood wagyu top sirloin, renowned for its INSANE levels of marbling, from Lone Mountain Wagyu's southwestern ranch.

Pit Roasted Brisket + Hickory Smoked Ribs + Dry Rubbed Pulled Pork = what Dad wants to eat on Father's Day.
"Sarge's Monster Sandwich looks terrific, but it could use a bit more meat," said no one. Ever. New York's largest sandwich features stacks on stacks on stacks of house-cured pastrami, corned beef, roast beef, turkey AND salami from a NY Jewish deli institution, Sarge's Deli. Opening in 1964, this promised land of pastrami was named after Abe “Sarge” Katz, a retired NYPD cop who gave the restaurant its signature pastrami recipe. Step inside and you'll get a true New York deli experience—complete with signed celebrity photos, Tiffany lamps and the scent of smoky pastrami wafting past the classic diner booths.
The quintessential New York slice is HERE and it is too beautiful for words... but we'll try anyway. After immigrating to the US from Naples in the mid 1950s, Pino “Joe” Pozzuoli opened a little pizza shop in the heart of the Village and the diets of New Yorkers have never been the same. Joe's Pizza's signature slice is the epitome of pizza nirvana: an ultra thin crust that’s light and crispy for maximum foldability, fresh tomato sauce and a layer of ooey, gooey cheese that'll melt your heart.
For over a year, we worked beside Joe's and their crew, testing, prodding and gaining many a pound to ensure that the pizza you dive into at home is the same as in New York, minus the subway rumbling beneath your feet.

There’s a reason cultures around the world have their own version of a dumpling. Meat and veggies tucked into a delicious blob of dough? Uhm, yes please. Poland’s version of these plump, doughy bites? Pierogi. And Baba & Pops is handcrafting ’em just like owner Jeremy’s great-grandparents (affectionately known as Baba & Pop) did over 100 years ago. When Baba & Pop emigrated from Poland, they brought their family’s tradition of making pierogi for the family. Now Jeremy and his wife serve fresh, all natural pierogi using the same recipe to serve Denver out of their tiny food truck.
Fresh handmade dough overflowing with everything from traditional creamy potatoes and cheese to pulled pork… Is this what love feels like?
After training at multi-star restaurants like Nobu, Catskill Food Company’s founder, Jonah Shaw, returned to his hometown among the Catskill Mountains to craft his unique, all natural sausages that mashup some of America’s grilling favorites like the incomparable bacon blue cheese burger sausage. This sausage alone is keeping the American dream alive. Each Food Network famous sausage at CFC is crafted in small batches to keep the artisan sausage making craft alive. Catskill’s other inventive mashups include Chinese pork dumpling and Greek gyros sausages. If this is the future of sausage making in America, we’re going to need Doc’s keys to the DeLorean quick.
The Davila family has been in Texas long before it was even, well... a state, which means they know a little something about BBQ . Adrian Davila, Davila's third generation owner, is TV's latest buzzed-about pitmaster, learning the craft from his grandfather who opened this BBQ haven in 1959. Davila's BBQ does everything in-house—whether that's breaking down beef for the famed hot links or sauces inspired by Latino flavors. It's the hot links, however, that are the favorite here—a sausage Adrian's grandfather learned to craft from his family and sold to local restaurants before opening his own.
Using the same process over 50 years later, Davila's pitmasters still know how to make their hot links bling.
