WINNER: LeGrand's Market and Catering (4414 Donovan Avenue; 314-353-4059) is your pick for St. Louis' most underrated sandwich shop.

We got some grief for featuring places that aren't exactly "underrated," but hey, this was a list compiled by the people, for the people. Second place went to Gioia's Deli, which we've named one of the best delis in the city in the past. Here's the full report:

  1. LeGrand's Market & Catering (4414 Donovan Avenue; 314-353-4059): 38.41 percent
  2. Gioia's Deli (1934 Macklind Avenue; 314-776-9410): 20.39 percent
  3. Majic Market and Convenience Store (640 West Woodbine Avenue, Kirkwood; 314-966-5056): 15.96 percent
  4. Blues City Deli (2438 McNair Avenue; 314-773-8225): 13.9 percent
  5. Other: 11.33 percent

Original poll here.

The most popular write-in was Nora's (another of our favorites) followed by Mom's Deli.

If you've never been to LeGrand's, we recommend the "Legend Club," named one of the 100 best dishes in St. Louis last year. It's made with Salsalito turkey, pastrami, pepperoni, bacon, hot peppers, Havarti cheeses, garlic cream cheese and roasted red pepper sauce. But don't stop there -- make time at your lunch break this week for one of the many St. Louis-themed sammies, like the "Fredbird," "Stan the Man" or the "Blues Special."

We'll be back next week with another edition of Underrated/Overrated -- got an opinion about which food group we should tackle next? Tell us in the comments.
