A new Northside Sandwich King has been crowned.

Young Brothers Bar captivated the taste buds and stomachs of attendees and judges last night, beating out previous Sandwich King and this years runner up Scratch Food & Beverage.

Judges scored the sandwiches on overall taste, quality of ingredients, uniqueness and creativity, and the presentation of each sandwich. This years celebrity judges were: comedian Davon Magwood, WDVE Val Porter, musician Clinton Clegg, and City Paper News Editor Charlie Deitch.
