|The Front Door No One Uses|
|Packed until we got there, must have just missed the lunch crowd.|
A large opening in led into pretty much brand new tables bolted to the ground and a long legged stools to sit on. We walked up to the cash register in the back, made our order, and then ambled on down to a recently vacated seat near the front, the perfect spot for people watching. About 20 minutes later our sandwhich came out. Now this is where it gets good and decadent.
|How can something so small looking be so bad for you?|
I had decided to go with the Fat Sal. It was an "extra wide" garlic bun filled with roast beef, mozzarella sticks, onion rings, fries, brown gravy, and mayo. Wow that's a mouth full. It was stuffed, literally with everything that was bad for you. I took a big bite and managed to get a piece of roast beef, mozzarella stick, and onion ring. I got to admit when I list of ingredients online I wondered if they could really make it work, but after the first bite I realized they had. It was actually pretty good. The only thing I didn't like about it was the lack of roast beef. It was like they sacrificed a delicious cut of meat in order to put the cheaper fried food into the sandwich.

Outside of the sandwiches being good but not great, I really liked Fat Sal's. It had a nice open PB atmosphere, the tables were clean, and the people were nice. I'll probably head back there the next time I feel the need to eat something that I have no question is horrible for me. I can't wait to try the Fat Juanita. ... ouch... I just hope my heart can handle another round. It hurts a bit just thinking about it, but hey no one lives forever.
