What You'll Get
The scientific innovation of bread has exponentially popularized the sandwich, which used to squeeze its contents between baseball mitts or two hardcover copies of Atlas Shrugged. Indulge in a sandwich without inedible plot elements with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of food and drink at The Phat Sammich, located in Birmingham.
The Phat Sammich overrides the objections of sandwich super-egos with enormous heaps of unorthodox ingredients piled between two slices of bread. Tongue-tango with your choice from more than 50 sandwiches, such as the shop's titular Phat Sammich ($8.99), topped with coleslaw, french fries, Swiss cheese, Russian dressing, and your choice from an Orwell novel's worth of meats. The Mexican chicken sandwich ($7.99) piles pulled chicken with chipotle mayo, pepper-jack cheese, and Doritos, and the Pulled Sammich ($7.99), crammed with your choice of pulled pork or pulled chicken on an onion roll, melds a mouthwatering marriage between toppings of barbecue sauce and Funyuns. Vegetarians also have several sandwich-scrapers to peruse, such as the Tomato and Mozzarella ($6.99), with tomato, buffalo mozzarella, pesto, and garlic aioli on grilled Italian. If your inner Andre the Giant keeps you from being totally stuffed, side orders include tater tots ($2.99) and beer-battered onion rings ($3.79).
Conceived by Jeffrey McArthur of Farmington Hills' Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup, The Phat Sammich features more psychedelic décor than its country-themed sister restaurant, with peace signs and stylized flowers on its walls and the spirit of Abbie Hoffman haunting the restaurant's napkins. Saddle up on one of the restaurant's counter stools, or enjoy a warm day on the outdoor patio while devouring super-sized sandwiches at The Phat Sammich.
