This is the first in a two-part series. I have returned from the most epic, delicious, salt-infused expedition of a lifetime. It was the most glorious tour one can take of this fair city. Should you choose to take the journey yourself, I shall volunteer to steer the course. The grandest journey starts with a single step. Mine began a few weeks ago when I ran into Danger Sandwich. He is Jack Swiker, a fellow enthusiast for just about any concoction you can cram between two slabs of crust.

Attention sports fans, college students and anyone else 21 and older who loves to have fun in a bar setting: The Office Bar and Grill is the place for you. If you?re looking for a family restaurant, nix it from the list. Located in Burbank on Victory Boulevard, a stone?s throw east of Hollywood Way, the Office facade is somewhat modest and easy to miss if you?re not looking for it. Before I entered, I stood at the door and paused for a second. It seemed strangely quiet for a sports bar, especially on opening night for the NHL playoffs.

There?s something unseemly and a little gluttonous about driving from hamburger stand to hamburger stand, tasting the charbroiled sandwiches, then piling up the beefy booty and wheeling across town to do it all over again. Not to mention, each grease-splotched paper bag plopped into my front seat served as a reminder to get my lipids checked. ?Next time, I swear, it?ll be salads,? I told my burgeoning image in the visor mirror. But, in the name of journalism, I forwent worrying about triglycerides, and forged on to find the best hamburger stand from the Burbank-Glendale-La Crescenta area.

Salerno's Italian Café on Riverside Drive in Burbank specializes in satisfying the lunchtime cravings of the denizens of nearby studios and offices. But its menu extends beyond office hours, offering both breakfast and dinner. The breakfast menu is topped by a terrific breakfast combo burrito. Egg, cheese, hash browns and three meats ? ham, bacon and sausage ? are rolled up in a soft tortilla and served with salsa. Very tasty and so much meat inside that dogs began to howl when I bit into it. (I'm not kidding!

The following items were taken from Burbank Police Department reports: ? ?10 block of West Magnolia Boulevard: A 27-year-old man from Burbank was arrested on suspicion of burglary when he allegedly stole pastrami from Aries Prepared Beef. Officers noticed the man walking out of the store, which packages various meats for resale to markets, holding the hunk of beef. Knowing the store does not sell meat to walk-in customers, officers arrested the man. ?1200 block of San Fernando Boulevard: A 29-year-old man from Ontario, Canada, and a 28-year-old woman from Toronto were arrested for allegedly having methamphetamine and packaging equipment for selling the drugs.

The submarine sandwich has as many aliases as a con man on the run. Depending on where you hail from, you may know the sub -- and it's variations -- as a bomber, grinder, hero, hoagie, Italian, rocket, torpedo, Dagwood, po'boy, wedge or zeppelin. But in Burbank, you call it a sub and the real deal can be found at Santoro's Submarine Sandwiches. A Burbank institution for nearly 50 years, Santoro's hits the sweet spot for great subs. It starts, of course, with the bread -- soft, fresh-baked Italian bread with enough structure to hold up under the strain of its contents without being too chewy or dry. Urban legend has it that the shape of the loaf inspired the sandwich's name back in the 1920s.

Since 1980, Burbank residents have been getting to know Ben -- Ben Shiralian of Ben's Delicatessen that is. This family-owned and operated eatery has become a favorite for many a hungry diner. What keeps them coming back for more? Besides the extensive "deli" menu, it's the service that brings hungry eaters back again and again. It's Ben's mission to serve a "home-cooked" meal to his customers, to which most of his clientele, will happily attest. Ben's cheery wait staff know their recurring customers well, remembering favorite dishes, and just how they like their eggs prepared.

Every time I walk into Billy's Deli & Cafe, I feel like I should be wearing a Yankees' baseball cap and checking my pockets to see if I have enough change for the subway. Times Square should be right outside. The Yankees should be on the television (and winning). And the pastrami on rye should be a mile high. Well, at least, I can always count on Billy's to fulfill one wish. On my annual pilgrimage to New York City, I must do two things — catch a game at Yankee Stadium and eat at an East Coast deli, where sandwiches are packed with fresh, lean meat taller than the Empire State Building and the matzo ball soup has that light, melt-in-your-mouth texture, but is strong enough to cure the common cold.

This is the epic conclusion to Bryan's two-part sandwich tour of Burbank. Read part one here. I've heard a meat sandwich described as a lot of things. Until recently, though, never “buttery.” We sat on hard benches at McCambridge Park, barely taking time from bites of pastrami to offer our customary assessments of the food. It was late in the day, and Jack Swiker, of the Danger Sandwich blog (thedanger sandwich.blogspot.com), and yours truly had already tried several of Burbank's delis.
