Sandwiches are modeled after Victorian-era architecture, a style known for its sesame-seed-dusted roofs, flowing lettuce curtains, and meat everywhere. Feast ornately upon a well-formed feeding frenzy with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get a meal for two at Lickadee Splits in Owings Mills (a $25.40 value). The meal includes:
- Two sandwiches (a $6.95 value each)
- Two fries and drink combos (a $1.50 value each)
- Two specialty sundaes (a $4.25 value each)<p>
Lickadee Splits ignites appetites through a menu of quick bites and specialty sundaes. At the restaurant’s outdoor counter, patrons sink teeth into savory hot or cold sandwiches that include options such as pastrami, corned beef, and turkey. Side orders of fries and drinks complete the edible trifecta, adding a salty and sweet accent that is vastly superior to the alternative: ocean-water popsicles. Nineteen sundaes such as the marshmallow-topped Lavender Lady shamelessly flirt with sweet teeth, and the chocolate and vanilla Twist & Shout liberates wisdom teeth through in-mouth dance-offs. Each treat is painstakingly assembled within Lickadee Splits’s offbeat premises, which is lavished with old-timey signs and an outdoor-seating section replete with rainbow umbrellas to deflect the freshwater trout that commonly fall from the sky.
Like gingerbread houses and the gingerbread cooks who inhabit them, Lickadee Splits’s desserts are made from premium ingredients and recipes. The ice cream, made with 14% butterfat (a telltale sign of high-quality dairy), is used in each scoop-based sweet and the Sno-Balls are built with concentrates exclusively manufactured in New Orleans, where the icy treat was first conceived.
