To subvert grumpy monarchs, angry medieval youths scrawled condiment graffiti such as "Fran Tanner has the plague" or "the king is a jerk" inside their sandwiches. Dig beneath lettuce to bring history to light with today's Groupon: for $6, you get $12 worth of sandwiches and drinks at Dagwood's Sandwich Shoppes.
Dagwood's heaps up a towering menu of savory specialty sandwiches, wraps, and salads. 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 ($7.99). Induce melodious mastication with the classic ham and cheese, delectably drizzled with honey mustard and mayo and donning a jaunty slice of juicy tomato ($4.79 for a regular, $7.69 for a large), or the Asian chicken wrap, which holds a sliced chicken breast adorned with Asian dressing, crunchy chow-mein noodles, and crisp lettuce ($5.39). Combos pair sandwiches with emotionally compatible drinks and salads (add $1.99–$3.99), and kids explore viscous vistas with the gooey grilled cheese ($2.99). Patrons can view a selection of “Blondie” comics on the restaurant’s flat-screen TV while brainstorming creative ways to topple mail carriers while en route to work.
