The restaurant was selected because Tucson Weekly readers elected the place winner for Best Sandwich in the Best of Tucson® awards for ten years running. See how important Tucson Weekly readers are!?
So send Beyond Bread some good vibes as they vie for top honors at the competition this weekend. We hear they'll be unleashing some sort of a super Reuben on the judges. Here's wishing them luck.
