It isn't (at any point in my life), but in theory I could deal.  As long as there isn't a significant chance for it to be confused for an apple pie, don't care.  Call your shit what you like.
I basically agree, call it what you like unless its going to cause confusion. 

If its got corned beef or pastrami, swiss cheese, saurkraut, thousand island or russian dressing and comes on rye, sure call it a reuben.  If its all that but on white bread, not a reuben.

Reuben-inspired sandwich.

I have visited coastal Maine at least a dozen times over the last 20 years and this was the first time I ever ordered a Lobster roll.
Pretty satisfying.


(typically, when I eat lobster, I buy them live and steam them)

The best sandwich in town IMO is from a place called Star Provisions. They have their own farm and cows.

Its prosciutto di parma, parmigiano reggiano shavings and fresh churned butter on a baguette.

I have never been to France but my ex claims its the closest thing to a real french baguette she has ever had. Its crispy and floury and airy and OH MY GOD! If I wasn't such a skeptic it would be proof that god does exist.  Its the best bread I have ever had.

Its not the best ham I have ever had but it is a higher end prosciutto thats extremely good. (I personally think the Spanish Serrano and Iberico hams are better)

I hesitate to call a Sub, it has no vegetables not that vegetables define a sub. Calling it a sub would feel like I am lowering the status of this masterpiece.

LOL

There are two versions of this and other regional variations of those.  A hot with butter on the baguette and a cold with mayo,

The cold is served on a buttered toasted "split"sweet roll (and sometimes a hotdog bun) Its my favorite but expensive.


Here in ATL they have a "clam roll" that is made with fried clam strips (ala Howard Johnsons) on a small split dinner roll with mayo

Often  he lobster roll has lettuce and tomato as well.

The cold can sometimes be pretty much a lobster salad.

A common sandwich I only became familiar with about 10 years ago is a "Balboa".

I thought it was just a nickname a this particular pub used for a steak and cheese sandwich (on a garlic bread sub) that was some offhand approximation to a Philly Cheese steak.
Now I found that the name for this is fairly common, but originated somewhere in this county.

A sub, but only because of Subway. Prior to subway, it was just a roll or a bun - there wasn't any particular word that was used to refer to it. When filled with salad, it was a salad roll. Putting other stuff on it wasn't really a thing.

I can't answer the poll because, as Captain Video said, it depends on the sandwich. If it's on a long, submarine-shaped bread roll, it's a sub. If it's square sliced bread piled so high you cannot eat it unless your jaws unhinge like those of a python, then it's a Dagwood, after the comic character. Anything else is just a sandwich.

Where and when I grew up, a sandwich on a long roll was grinder. Now around here in CT it's either a grinder or a sub.  I've encountered heroes in NY state. I've never heard of a wedge, though I suppose I've never tried to buy a sandwich in Fairfield County.

Sub, but I'm abstaining because its never a "submarine".   

I've removed the offensive "submarine" for you so you can participate


My mother was rather formal in this - she always called it a "submarine sandwich." Everyone else in the family just called it a "sub."

In the Philadelphia area, a NON-cheesesteak sandwich on a long roll is a hoagie. A warm/toasted hoagie becomes a grinder.
