10. The Pitts-Burger at Primanti Bros.

This Pittsburgh-based chain of sandwich and pizza joints is treated like a temple of all things greasy and delicious. Here in Florida, the Primanti Brothers chain of restaurants serves the same great Italian-American specialties late into the night. The place is most famous for its pizza, followed by their "almost famous sandwiches," monstrous slices of Italian bread stuffed with meat, cheese, cole slaw, and salty hand-cut French fries. We're referring to the second-most-popular menu item, the Pitts-burger sandwich: a beef patty, sweet and sour cole slaw, tomato, provolone cheese, and fries all nestled together under two big hunks of sliced Italian bread.

9. The Wall Street Grindr at New York Grilled Cheese Co.

Smack in the middle of Wilton Drive in Wilton Manors, you'll find the New York Grilled Cheese Co., what is no doubt a lactose intolerant individual's worst nightmare. Why? Because everything on the menu has melted dairy. Situated inside an old frozen yogurt shop, it's a whimsical space to order up a delicious array of gourmet takes on the childhood snack favorite. Even side items include a good mix of late-night favorites, like poutine-style fries with cheese curds and gravy, or jalapeno poppers with sweet chili aioli. The Wall Street Grinder is the most outrageous sandwich here, however, with American-cheddar cheese, french fries, bacon, caramelized onions, garlic butter, and scrambled egg on thick-cut, sourdough country bread.
