Perhaps this is a hot take, or perhaps a clear front runner, but I think Bennett's Sandwiches is arguably the best sandwich shop on the Seacoast (dare I say, New Hampshire... New England?).

I mean, look at this pastrami sandwich.

Regardless of where you put Bennett's in your power rankings, there is good news for sandwich lovers in or around Salem, New Hampshire.

Bennett's Sandwich Shop is now open in Salem, New Hampshire.

Bennett's started with a seasonal shop in Kennebunk, Maine. From there, they expanded to Portsmouth, New Hampshire, Boston, Massachusetts, Burlington, Massachusetts, and now Salem, New  Hampshire.

Check out the new look in the Tuscan Village:

A few weeks ago, I went over to the Portsmouth location to get my lunch usual: a large buffalo chicken cheesesteak on their incredibly soft bread, and decided to get the scoop. Owners Maggie and Brendan weren't there, so I chatted with lead manager Cassie Guy.

Excited about the Tuscan Village opening, Guy said, "We are just trying to expand in New England."

She went on to mention that there will be new items only available at the Salem location, such as smoothies. One thing that will not be taken off the menu is the all-day breakfast sandwiches Bennett's offers.

Being someone who always has to ask for an extra egg on my breakfast sandwiches, Bennett's is the only place that does them right. On their signature bread roll, a small comes with three eggs, and a large has four. That's before the meat...and they load it up with meat.

From their breakfast sandwiches to their cheesesteaks, and even their lobster rolls, this place brings a full meal to every sandwich.

Now that's the way lobster rolls should look. Well done, Bennett's. This is why I love ya.

So to those in or around Salem, New Hampshire, congrats. You have a delectable sandwich joint now open. From their staff to what's between the bread (oh, and the bread too), Bennett's is elite.

Enjoy the new menu items, like smoothies, and definitely have their classics: a buffalo chicken cheesesteak OR a backyard steak and cheese. Trust me, those two are the best.
