Ultimate BLT

Where do you all go for your favorite BLT-- or other bacon-centric sandwiches? I found an old thread on this board about "Bacon" but the only BLT places mentioned were Freddie's Place and Sandy's (and some now-defunct place with a havarti/sriracha/bacon sandwich which will soon be duplicated in my home, I am certain). The description of the Sandy's BLT didn't sound too hot, and my dining companion (who was seriously craving a BLT yesterday) vetoed Freddie's-- said he'd been there and the food was not good. I pride myself on being able to help when food cravings hit my loved ones, and yet, yesterday, I was at a loss. The ideal sandwich has CRISP bacon. I cannot stress enough that this is the most important component. Nitrite-free bacon is a plus, but I realize that probably ain't happening. Artisanal bread, unmealy tomatoes, maybe even the addition of some creative cheese, flavored mayo, avocado or other interesting tweaks would be welcome.

I searched google yesterday and came up with Ave B Grocer/Deli and the Little Deli, but both of those places are closed Sundays. We wound up at Woodland, as I discovered they have a BLT+avocado+herbed mayo on Texas Toast. Bacon was ordered extra crispy, but came out limp. The entire sandwich was a disappointment and so, the craving may be over, but the search for the perfect BLT (for next time!) continues...
