The Best Sandwich Places in Puerto Rico

Picture of Kris Pethick
Updated: 29 January 2018
Sandwiches in Puerto Rico are not just any sandwich. They are made with fresh-baked bread, loaded with your favorite meats and cheeses and ensalada (lettuce and tomato) if you choose, then lightly grilled in a press so the crust is warm and crispy and the inside is still soft and chewy. Try some of these great sandwich places on your next trip to Puerto Rico.
El Patrón del Sandwich

Located in the lot at the intersection of 308 and 103 in Cabo Rojo, this amazing food stand has been serving superior sandwiches since 2013.  They have criollo sandwiches, wraps, burgers and more.  Their breakfast sandwiches are some of the best on the island, and if you are vacationing in the Cabo Rojo area and don’t feel like making the drive, remember they deliver.
