Rachael vs. GuyOn Sunday’s episode of Rachael vs. Guy: Celebrity Cook-Off, the challenge had the celebrity contestants at Mel’s Drive-In on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood. The goal was to reinvent three classic diner sandwiches: the tuna melt, the cheeseburger and the club sandwich. Unfortunately, not everyone lived up to the challenge. The diners found Dean’s and Chilli’s dishes from Team Guy their least favorite. In the end, Chilli was eliminated.

When you think about it, a diner sandwich makes a pretty darn good lunch, especially when you want to satisfy a craving for greasy spoon cuisine. Everyone has his or her favorite sandwich — you may even order the same one every time you visit a diner. FN Dish wants to know, What’s your favorite diner sandwich? Vote in the poll after the jump.

    My most memorable diner sandwich had to be a sliced turkey with sauted onion on thick grilled white toast served with a side of hashbrowns mixed with melted montery cheese and green pepper.
    My favorite diner sandwich classic is a Rueben or Rachel on grilled marbled rye topped with melted swiss and sauted kraut and onion. Russian dressing is ok, the sandwich is perfect minus.
