Among cold sandwiches ($6.59), the signature Joe Fassi combo contains layers of italian meats, provel cheese, fresh veggies, and special dressing. Rivulets of gravy and melted provel escape hot sandwiches ($6.59+) that come in single and triple decks. The pasta menu features different noodles topped with a tomato sauce, chili, or Joe’s house-made meatballs and italian sausage ($6.95–$7.95). For dessert, cooks bake chocolate-chip, double-chocolate-chip, or butterscotch-oatmeal cookies ($1 for three). Each 3-foot party sub feeds 10–13 guests.
Joe Fassi Sausage and Sandwich Factory
The culinary masterminds at Joe Fassi Sausage and Sandwich Factory stuff their menu with homemade meatballs and sausages that caught the hungry editorial eye of Riverfront Times in 2010. Crafted with care and brimming with meat, more than 30 hot and cold sandwiches salute the Fassi forebears, who founded a grocery store in the storefront in 1926. Meatballs simmer in a tangy red sauce, and sausages speak of sweet and savory combos such as red wine with garlic and breakfast sherry with nutmeg. Instead of topping salads with handsome boutonnieres, guests can enhance their visual appeal with the café’s homemade Italian-style vinaigrette, available by the spoonful and by the bottle. The factory's friendly staffers also cater events with hearty boxed lunches and sandwiches that stretch up to 10 feet.
