The #1 sandwich in Washington, according to Guy Fieri, is an unusual panini that's found in Chehalis.

The special turkey sandwich (see gallery below) has a tapanade and is drizzled with a dressing that's infused with fresh basil. After taking one bite of the panini, Guy Fieri said it gave him flashbacks of nostalgia that reminded him of being a 10-year-old growing up in Ferndale, California, and eating yummy sandwiches.

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery.
