After months of drooling over photos of The Meat Hook crew testing out potential sandwiches, they finally opened their sandwich shop to the public.
Their menu is short and simple, consisting of 6 different sandwiches. Gyro, Italian, roast pork, roast beef, ham and cheese, and a chicken sandwich. I sort had my heart set on the roast beef sandwich, until I got to see the more detailed menu at the counter. The chicken sandwich wasn’t just a chicken sandwich but a hot fried chicken sandwich ($12). Ding! You know I can’t say no to a fried chicken sandwich. This sandwich was massive and I loved every bite of it. Spicy, crunchy, flavorful, sauce dripping, and everything held together nicely by a very nice bun.
Though just heads up, when Robert Sietsema of Eater went, I noticed the cannibal sandwich had replaced the chicken sandwich. What da what?! On Instagram, Brent Young told me that the menu will rotate like crazy. I’m glad I was able to try the chicken sandwich and can now move onto try the other sandwiches.
Their hours are 11 – 4p everyday.
