Capriotti’s

Capriotti’s

West Valley City residents are familiar and excited with the growth that 5600 W has experienced over the past 10 years.  New to town and opening up within a month of each other are two new quick service sandwich establishments putting down tracks in the Salt Lake City area.  Capriotti’s is one of those new places opening up in the same development shared by Target and Cinemark, and right next door to Black Bear diner.

Capriotti’s began close to 40 years ago out east in Delaware, but now has locations across the United States.  Stepping into their shop, I like the setup.  They have a few grills in the back, a salad making station in front, and multiple soup options that every good sandwich shop needs.  There is something for everyone here.  They even have some fresh-baked cookies and brownies for your sweet tooth.

I tried several items on the Capriotti’s menu and my favorite would probably be their flagship sandwich, The Bobbie.  If you like Thanksgiving, then you are probably going to like this sandwich.  Turkey, stuffing, and cranberry sauce.  It has a good amount of savory and sweet on it.

I don’t usually like cole slaw, unless of course it is in the middle of a roll and fresh turkey.  The Cole Turkey was another good choice.

Another thing I was impressed with from the menu were the salads.  Like other sandwich shops in the same market, you can get half sandwich, soup or salad combos if you would like.  Here is a picture of one of the BBQ chicken salads my wife ordered.

Overall thoughts and feelings on Capriottis?  I thought it was decent.  I didn’t love it but I didn’t hate it either.  The salads were pretty good, as was the Bobbie.  If you have a hankering for those flavors, then Capriotti’s is a good choice.  A few of the sandwiches were underwhelming like the Philly Cheesesteak, which had little meat, and paled in comparison to other sandwich shops.  Capriotti’s has a few competitors in the area with strong followings like Jimmy John’s, Cafe Zupas, and Potbelly’s and it will be interesting to see how they do at the Target location.  The service at Capriotti’s was good, the wait times were not bad, and the prices were decent.
