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 breakfast and lunch at Lynnally's, located downtown near the corner of Broad Street and Third Street. Lynnally's is open Monday through Friday, 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Armed with the belief that quick-service eats should not come at the expense of taste or freshness, the sandwich engineers at Lynnally's slow-roast their own turkey, beef top round, and pork shoulder, synthesizing dishes that restore the soul and mollycoddle the mind in a timely fashion. Lynnally's lunch menu lumbers with generous portions. Nosh a signature salad such as the salsa-tinged, Southwestern-inspired Adobo ($6.45), or synthesize your own ($6.95) with high-end ingredients such as beet curls, avocado, pine nuts, and pickled diamonds. Lynnally's soups, such as the savory chicken noodle ($2.95), are cooked from scratch each day and—like all Lynnally's dishes—fashioned from ingredients produced without hormones or pesticides whenever possible. Early birds can opt to wrench a juicy offering from the hearty breakfast menu, which includes stuffed sensations such as the Morning Fiesta burrito, a hunger-pummeling piñata of sausage, egg, green peppers, spicy salsa, and cheddar ($3.95).
Spawned from the cranial computers of the same passionate owners as winsome whiskey bar Barrel 44, Lynnally's is tucked away in a downtown alley, rendering the eatery a fine environment in which to fuel up for a long day of copying Muppet 'zines at work.
