One The ‘Best Sandwich Shops In America’ Is A Short Drive From Rockford
Sure you can make a sandwich at home but in order to have a truly great one, you're going to have to get in your car.
The best part is that you won't have to drive hours and hours to get a sandwich from one of the best sandwich shops in America.
Better yet, you won't even have to deal with the headache that is Chicago traffic.
All you'll need to do is drive north from Rockford, more specifically, Madison Wisconsin.
That's where the Underground Butcher resides. The Underground Butcher is getting some props too from Thrillist.
Underground Butcher is the best of the best, a place where they'll wrap raw cuts to go, but where you're advised to take a sandwich for the road. here's Texas-style brisket paired with decidedly un-Texas (but tasty!) fixin's of kimchi and whole-grain mustard. There's their house salami on a baguette with creamy Pleasant Ridge Reserve cheese, Dijon and aioli...You don't have to enter this place with a "thank you" card, but you might want to.
Yelp reviewers also share the same sentiment, saying its an "Awesome little butcher shop with a unique selection of wines, cheeses, and crude meats, etc." and "The BEST brisket that I have ever had!"
The Underground Butcher, 811 Williamson Street, is open 10 am to 7 pm Monday through Friday, 9 am to 7 pm on Saturday and 9 am to 6 pm on Sunday.
