To subvert grumpy monarchs, angry medieval youths scrawled condiment graffiti such as "Fran Tanner has plague" or "the king is a jerk" inside their sandwiches. Dig beneath lettuce to bring history to light with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of sandwiches and drinks at Dagwood's Sandwich Shoppes.
Dagwood's Sandwich Shoppes keeps mobs of hungering tongue buds at bay with its menu of savory specialty sandwiches, wraps, and more. Diners can test the jaw's structural supports with gargantuan chews of The Dagwood, a monolithic meatscape piled high with genoa salami, ham, pepperoni, and turkey and topped with cheddar and provolone cheeses and a landslide of condiments ($8.99). Customers with less flexible mandibles can nibble on the classic ham and swiss cheese, delectably drizzled with honey-dijon dressing and mayo and donning a jaunty slice of juicy tomato ($4.99), while those wishing to rebel against dough-based regimes can opt for the tasty governance of the oriental chicken wrap, a sliced chicken breast adorned with Asian-style dressing, crunchy chow mein noodles, and crisp lettuce folded into a wrap ($6.99). Combos pair sandwiches with emotionally compatible drinks and salads (add $2.19–$3.49), and kids can munch on tailor-made items such as the gooey grilled cheese ($3.99).

Dagwood’s Sandwich Shoppes
The iconic comic-strip character and namesake of Dagwood’s Sandwich Shoppes peeps out from the first “o” in the deli’s logo, embracing not his wife, Blondie, but the signature Dagwood sandwich. With its four meats and pair of cheeses, the delicious (if slightly intimidating) sandwich represents the more than 20 signature subs and clubs that grace Dagwood’s menu. Meats ranging from premium roast beef to tender pork loin share slices of bread with cheeses, crisp pickles, and all the condiments one might expect of an old-fashioned deli. Those too young to appreciate the shop’s Sunday-paper references will at least enjoy kids’ meals such as the classic grilled-cheese sandwich. Aside from their in-store selections, the deli caters events with colorful trays of meats and sack lunches served by a curiously cartoonish wait staff.
