There’s a reason why the crab cake sandwich at Sambo’s made Food Network Magazine’s list of 50 sandwiches from 50 states last year: eating one is as authentic an experience as eating gumbo in New Orleans or lobster in Maine. The sandwich is made from the same Delaware Bay crabs that Sambo’s so proudly serves steamed in heaps on your newspaper-covered table. Every seat in the dining room of this seasonal tavern comes with a view of the vast marsh beyond and the Leipsic River, where watermen dock their boats before unloading a catch that ends up on the tavern’s tables. In a word, Sambo’s keeps it real. 283 Front St., Leipsic, 674-9724
