Iconic Sandwich Shop Earns Well Deserved Street Dedication in Poughkeepsie, NY
The family behind one of the most popular sandwich shops in the Hudson Valley just received a huge honor.
Who Has The Best Sandwich in the Hudson Valley?
The Hudson Valley has its hand in every pot when it comes to food. You could call the mid-Hudson region a foodies paradise. But I think it's safe to say when you think of sandwiches, one local business comes to mind.
If you ask anyone for a sandwich recommendation around town, the likely first answer will be Rossi's in Poughkeepsie, and rightfully so. Rossi's has been named the "best" sandwich on so many lists it's hard to keep count.
In 2019, BuzzFeed named Rossis the Best Sandwich Spot in New York State. Then, in 2023, Yelp named Rossis one of the best 100 restaurants in the US. They came in at #79 (personally, I'd put them in the #1 spot). We also cant keep track of how many influencers visit the shop to try the #4.
With that being said, it should come as no surprise that the Rossi family earned a "well-deserved" honor this week.
