If you're stuck trying to figure out what to eat for lunch, just remember you can never go wrong with a good deli sandwich. Fortunately, there are plenty of delis around the state serving up incredible sandwiches, soups, salads and more.

Eat This, Not That! searched around the country to find the best deli restaurants, compiling a list of the top choice for each state. According to the site:

"Although the East Coast and Mid-Atlantic regions, especially cities like New York City and Philadelphia, are known for having incredible delis, don't count out the options all across the country. You'll find everything from classic, no-frills delis to spots that make good use of their regional ingredients to create fun twists on classic sandwiches, like a green chile chicken club in New Mexico."
