Potbelly’s

Aug 29, 2015

As promised, here is my review on the second sandwich shop to open up along 5600 W and 2700 S this month.  Potbelly’s also has a location opening in Sugar House.  It only took one visit to Potbelly’s to really enjoy them.  They are going to be in my rotation for local quick sandwiches. The first thing that stood out to me on the menu were the...

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...

  Been waiting to come to Vito’s for a long time.  If you want to have a discussion or debate on where the best cheesesteak sandwich is in Utah, then you can’t exclude Vito’s from that discussion.  People like to toss around DP Cheesesteaks, The Philadelphian, Moochies, or East Coast Subs as having the best.  My Philly needle still...

Even Stevens

Even Stevens

Feb 9, 2015

  Even Stevens first caught my attention when reviewing an online article of Salt Lake City’s best reuben sandwiches.  3 of the top 5 I expected to see in 9th South Delicatessen, Siegfrieds, and Feldman’s Deli, but then I saw Even Stevens on the list, and I’ve never even heard of them!  When I checked out their website, I noticed that...

La Sandwicherie

One of the things I enjoyed most about Miami Beach were the bicycle rentals that could be found throughout the city.  For $10 bucks you can rent a bicycle and ride it anywhere for 2 hours.  The traffic laws on Miami Beach are very conducive to cyclists as well.  Towards the end of my 2 hour block, I came upon a rental station and this place caught my eye,...

Central Grocery

  We started day number 2 of our New Orleans trip over on Decatur St. and the French Market.  After getting some early morning beignets from Cafe Du Monde, we had a great albeit cold time walking through the French Quarter and market place.  Finally we happened upon Central Grocery and the home of the original Muffuletta that has been around since 1906 and...

John’s Pork Roast

John’s Pork Roast

Dec 6, 2014

  I definitely wanted to treat my first trip to the Mecca of the cheesesteak, Philadelphia, PA with preparation and reverence.  I had of course heard of all the stories around Pat’s and Geno’s as they are the founding fathers of the cheesesteak religion, but after doing my homework and consulting with some Philly locals, I learned that the best...

Katz’s Delicatessen

Katz’s Delicatessen

Dec 4, 2014

  The “World Famous” moniker is often over-used by restaurants.  These guys have a claim on that title, and they don’t need Buddy the Elf to anoint them either.  There are two things that you have to first accept and then get over fast if you are going to enjoy Katz’s.  First, the place is going to be crazy busy.  You receive a...

  Cheese!  Sweet glorious, fantastic gooey cheese!  Walking down the Ferry Market building I passed along dozens of artisan food vendors, but this is the one that grabbed my attention.  I witnessed a gal in the kitchen preparing a huge platter of cheese sandwiches to be grilled.  There was no measuring or portion cups she was using.  Just a gobs and gobs,...

Togo’s Sandwiches

Jun 8, 2014

New in Sandy, Utah is Togo’s Sandwiches!  Togo’s is a sandwich shop that started in San Jose, California back in 1971, and now they have opened doors just south of Scheels Sporting Goods.  In fact the area is full of restaurants that have huge followings in other states but are somewhat new to Utah.  In the same parking lot Rita’s Frozen Ice...
