There are many ways to have a sausage sandwich in America, but two of the best are made in Illinois.

Mashed examined the best-ranked sausage sandwiches in the United States, covering meats like Polish sausage, brats, kielbasa, and chorizo.

THE BEST ITALIAN SAUSAGE SANDWICHES IN ILLINOIS

For us in Illinois, much like the Italian Beef, we do the Italian sausage sandwich pretty well, too.

That's because the Italian Sausage Sandwich at Johnnie's Beef in Chicago was named one of the best in America.

Food Network has sung its praises, it's top-ranked on Tripadvisor, and the customer reviews elsewhere are consistently stellar.

Yelp reviewers like Billy M. agree, saying Johnnie's has the "fourth best beef in Chicago but the best Italian Sausage, IMHO."

BEST BREAKFAST SAUSAGE SANDWICH IN ILLINOIS

If you're not feeling like an Italian sausage sandwich, you can always do something more breakfast-like.

Mashed also says the goods are the Sausage Egg & Cheese at Loaf Lounge.

The consensus is that Loaf Lounge makes a perfectly executed sausage egg & cheese.

That might be putting it lightly, as Michael K. said the sausage, egg, and cheese breakfast sandwich at Loaf Lounge "lives up to the hype" and is a "must-try."
