Making a sandwich requires only two slices of bread, filling, and an expensive machine that holds the slices of bread steady while the filling is shot in between them with some sort of air-powered hose. Go somewhere that has that apparatus with this Groupon.

Gilpin's Steamed Grub
Gilpin's lets their diners do the work—when it comes to thinking up and naming each of the shop's steamed sandwiches. After that, the kitchen staff gets to work creating the menu's 70+ sandwiches, burgers, pizzas, steamed salads amid a casual atmosphere. It's so casual and rustic, in fact, that it's playful: the restaurant is outfitted with old-school Nintendo system.
In the morning, chefs playfully fold buttery breakfast croissants over piles of cooked eggs, turkey bacon, and pepper jack cheese. During the afternoon and evening hours, the staff builds sandwiches on pretzel buns, French and honey wheat hoagies, and gluten-free bread. They construct grilled cheeses from dill havarti and Doritos, pair veggies with hummus, and top piles of meats—from smoked pulled pork and bacon to roast beef—with hot sauce and garlic cream cheese. But sandwiches aren't the only food steamed by the team at Gilpins. To leave exteriors soft and the cheese perfectly melted, they also steam cheeseburgers, pizzas, and salads.
We both got the #5 Doritos, their original steamed creation...Let me tell you, this combination was insanely deliciousLiz M., Yelp, 8/22/12
...they make some mean steamed sandwiches. Yes, steamed sandwiches...What the steaming does is moisten the bun and heat it up while not drying it out.Justin M., Yelp, 9/26/12
“The steamed sandwiches are delicious”
“The sandwich was very good, with plenty of meat and toppings. The steamed part of the experience made the bread very soft and meat hot and moist. Very good!”
“Get a different sandwich every time you go. Your mouth will thank you.”
