Before bread, sandwiches were haphazardly supported by two hands high-fiving. Enjoy better constructed eats with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of colossal sandwiches and other pub fare at The Labb in Denton.
The Labb, deemed a laid-back haven for sports enthusiasts by the Denton Record-Chronicle, stifles celebratory cheers with a menu of behemoth pub sandwiches piled high with daily-cut meats and artisan breads. Obscure mouth shears or incriminating diaries in the Reuben sammy ($6.75 for medium; $10.99 for large), which traps german sauerkraut, corned beef, and swiss cheese between two rye slabs slathered in house-made thousand island dressing. Lloyd's Texas club corrals smoked ham, turkey, and bacon between avocado and thick-cut toast ($7 for medium; $11.99 for large). An avalanche of queso, refried beans, pico de gallo, and jalapeños cascades across the Ballpark nachos' tortilla peaks ($8.99; add beef, chicken, or avocado for $1 each) or poorly placed family heirlooms.
NFL games and UFC showdowns unfold on HD TV screens while clusters amiably compete at pool tables or dartboards. A sprawling patio offers a fresh-air alternative to imbibing indoors or under a parked car.
Athletes dunk, dart from first to second base, and dribble down soccer fields at The Labb, yet the eatery has no sporting equipment. Instead, athletes can be seen competing on the bar’s high-definition TVs, and onlookers nosh on hearty sandwiches, hot dogs, and helpings of Frito pie. The Labb’s sandwiches range from the Cuban—stuffed to the brim with pork loin, ham, and Swiss cheese—to a reinterpretation of the BLT with turkey and avocado. Meanwhile, hot dogs come with eclectic toppings, such as chili, pico de gallo, avocado, blue cheese, and sprinkles.
