Making a sandwich requires only two slices of bread, filling, and an expensive machine that holds the slices of bread steady while the filling is shot in between them with some sort of air-powered hose. Go somewhere that has that apparatus with this Groupon.
$6 for $12 Worth of Café Fare
The menu includes toasted sandwiches such as the asiago chicken club—topped with grilled chicken, bacon, provolone, and asiago caesar dressing ($6.29)—and the Italian beef sub, dipped in au jus and served with or without peppers ($5.99). The ovens churn out thin-crust pizzas decorated with toppings that include buffalo sauce and giardiniera peppers ($7.99–$13.99). Chopped salads ($3.39–$7.69) and soups ($3.89–$4.99) sate lighter appetites.
Pickleman's Gourmet Cafe
In October 2005, Doug Stritzel tested his 16 years of restaurant experience by opening Pickleman's, a sandwich shop focused on fresh ingredients and hot subs. Judging by the eatery's success—the initial shop spawned 11 additional locations across the Midwest—Stritzel's experiment worked. Each day, the ovens churn out a lineup of hot subs and pizzas topped with steaming ingredients. Toasted sandwiches meld zesty flavors, such as salami, capicola, and giardiniera peppers, in a torpedo-shaped package that spins in an edible spiral when thrown. Chefs also man the ovens to craft thin-crust pizzas bedecked with chicken, blue cheese, and buffalo sauce, but spare the menu's soups and chopped salads from the flames.
