The best part about being famous has to be having a sandwich named after you. Sure, there’s the money and the adulation, but what you really want are the sandwiches. The real sign of a person “making it” and starring as a bonafide celeb — whether it's as a star in movies, sports, or entertainment — is when a restaurant reaches down from on high and knights him or her with its very own invention of meat and bread (or for our vegan friends, bread and sprouts). It doesn’t get much better than having an eponymous sandwich. Grab the napkins, and check out this celeb-inspired menu of sandwiches (and yes, we're including burgers and hot dogs!).
We’ve torn apart menus from across the U.S. and found mouth-watering descriptions for you to fantasize about. Which celebrity concoction sounds the best? Vote up the tastiest meal here.
