Niçoise Mountain
Let the accusations of snobbery commence! Yes, we love us a stacked tuna sandwich loosely inspired by the Niçoise salad. It's fat with gherkins and hard-boiled eggs, capers and mayo, black olives and Parm, on a crusty baguette.

$10 Can Get You Better Sandwiches Than the ‘Meat Mountain’

Arby's, the national fast food chain whose trademarked slogan is the ominous-sounding "We Have the Meats," made beefy news this week with its “Meat Mountain."

What the heck is that?

Oh, hey, glad you asked: It’s a tower of lunch meats, plus bacon, which you can order for $10, and receive, wrapped in paper, along with a bun. Need specifics? That’s two chicken tenders, 1.5 ounces of roast turkey, 1.5 ounces of ham, a slice of Swiss cheese, 1.5 ounces of corned beef, 1.5 ounces of brisket, 1.5 ounces of Angus steak, a slice of cheddar, 1.5 ounces of roast beef, and 3 bacon half-strips.

Good grief. How did this beast come into existence? It was inspired by a drool-inducing poster that dotted the walls of various Arby’s locations. People would come in, point to it, and demand all the meats.

As much as one can understand the lure of a huge stacked cold cut–dominated sandwich, one might question whether chicken, turkey, ham, corned beef, steak, roast beef, and bacon really belong. Together. In one bite. Can’t we get some gherkins up in here, at the very least, to break up all that salt and fat?

But you know what? We could get behind any of the following five stacked sandwich concoctions, hypothetically priced for $10. Eat your heart out, Arby’s.
