Las Vegas may be known for its many fine dining restaurants, but sometimes all you want is a good sandwich to sink your teeth into. In honor of National Sandwich Month, CBS Las Vegas has rounded up five of the best places in town to get a sandwich. From a celebrity chef restaurant best known for its pastries and Italian fare to a deli famous for its overstuffed sandwiches, these five eateries serve some of the tastiest sandwiches in town. One bite and taste buds will agree: these sandwiches aren’t anything like what mom used to make.
