The Indiana Office of Tourism Development, in partnership with the Indianapolis Super Bowl Host Committee and Indianapolis Monthly, produced Super 46 Sandwiches, a special section of the Indiana Travel Guide commemorating Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis. A mobile-ready website,, has also been launched. Super 46 Sandwiches is designed to highlight local restaurants, recommend places to eat to Super Bowl visitors and assist Indianapolis Super Bowl Host Committee efforts to market quality dining options in Indianapolis and across Indiana.

To engage Hoosiers and visitors, an online playoff has been created to select a Super 46 Sandwiches champion. Votes cast from now through January 5 will determine the top 16 sandwiches. Roughly following the NFL playoff schedule, the field will then be narrowed each week as sandwiches go head to head based on public input. A winner will be announced prior to the big game in early February. Only one vote can be submitted per round. Local food fans can log on to to help their favorite sandwich take the title.

This year, one of Evansville's favorite restaurants, The Gerst Bavarian Haus  was chosen to submit probably the most radical-sounding sandwich on the list - the Schweinefilet Sandwich. (It basically means filet of pork.)

“Indiana will welcome tens of thousands of fans during Super Bowl XLVI,” said Amy Vaughan, director, Indiana Office of Tourism Development. “This is a unique opportunity to showcase some of the many local businesses that serve up great food and trademark Hoosier Hospitality while helping to increase visitor spending statewide.”
