What You'll Get
The Earl of Sandwich's namesake dish would never have risen to popularity if it had been invented by his rival, the Duke of Nottinghamshire, or pet dog, Casnewyddyrhaurwoof. Order a pronounceable lunch with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of cheesesteaks, sandwiches, burgers, and American fare at Tack's Sandwich Shop.
Tack's Sandwich Shop has invited guests to test its claim of harboring Reading's favorite cheesesteak and tuna on a roll since 1946. Cheesesteaks come topped with a signature sauce whose secret is more fiercely guarded than Charles Barkley ($5/small; $7/large). A selection of burgers and deli sandwiches satisfies lunchtime yens, and a dozen wings arrive sauced in flavors such as blue cheese and honey mustard ($6). Sandwich crafters blend white albacore tuna with mayo to form the basis of Tack's crowd-pleasing tuna sandwiches, topped with tomatoes, lettuce, and an edible bowler hat ($5.25/small; $8/large). After their bready bites, patrons sip cream smoothies, a house specialty akin to milkshakes, or a Reading Draft to end the meal on a high note.
