The only things better than sliced bread are sliced bread slices and sliced bread dipped in gold. Enjoy a slice-based meal with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of sandwiches and drinks at Fat Sandwich's Railroad Avenue, South Bronough Street, or Blair Stone Road locations.
Diners choose their own bread-based adventure or sup on one of many specialty sandwiches that fill Fat Sandwich's menu, packed with freshly baked bread, meat, cheese, condiments, and a rabbit king's worth of vegetables. Protein-heavy options include the Caveman Club—a stack of turkey, ham, and bacon toasted to crispy perfection—and the Absurd Bird, a chicken salad concoction made with juicy chicken, diced red onions, and celery ($6.49–$7.49). The chicken, cheese, and veggie quesadilla packages diced chicken breast, provolone and cheddar cheese, black olives, onions, and banana and green peppers ($6.99). Up to 12 vegetables form a medley inside each sandwich, with banana peppers, black olives, and carrots being but a few of the scrumptious choices; in addition, diners can replace meat entirely with an herbivore-friendly palette of grub, including Artie's Tempeh, a soy-based protein substitute. The specialty sandwich menu makes way for the cuban's roasted pork, ham, and pickles, which sizzle under a melted layer of swiss cheese and includes a homemade side ($5.99–$7.99, six inch or 12 inch). Thanks to an oven and a lightning rod, Fat Sandwich's sandwich artists finally achieved the fusion of pizza and sandwich with the pizza sub—pepperoni wallowing in pizza sauce with melted parmesan, provolone, and oregano spritzes ($5.99–$7.99).
Walls lined with street art, pastel colors, and signs stamped with the eye-catching marks of legal graffiti complete the décor at Fat Sandwich, whose original Railroad Avenue diner was formerly a 1950s service station. Inside, simple tabletops give patrons a casual place to fuel up as they're dreamily transported to the good old days, long before Canada had declared its independence from New York.
