Today on the show, Charlie and Dennis try out some famous sandwiches. Voted Vegas’ Best of 2010 in the LAS VEGAS WEEKLY magazine, EDDY D’s FAMOUS ITALIAN SANDWICHES has been feeding Las Vegans’ top quality meats, cheeses and specialty items for around just about a year. Not bad to receive such an honor after opening up so soon. Eddy D’s is family owned and operated. They started the establishment after not finding what they called a “happy place” in Las Vegas. In other words, a sandwich shop with good bread, good meats and good cheeses. They believe a top-notch sandwich starts with only the best bread. They worked for over a year with local bakers in the Vegas Valley to create the ultimate Artesian bread.
Charlie and Dennis both said they felt very welcomed in the shop. Some old folks were just hangin’ out inside chit chatting as though it was part of their daily routine and it added to the very casual welcoming atmosphere.
Charlie’s sandwich choice was “The Figaro”. On it comes hot Soppressata, dry-cured Capacola, sharp provolone cheese, lettuce, Eddy D’s marinated tomatoes and provolone cheese on their signature bread previously mentioned.
As for Dennis, his sandwich was one of the main reasons the 2 choose Eddy D’s. It’s called “The Robert” and is considered by many to be direct competition to another popular sub from a well known restaurant here called CAPRIOTTI’S. Their sandwich is called “The Bobby” and is basically a casserole on a bun consisting of all your Thanksgiving faves: turkey, stuffing and cranberry sauce. Paint on some mayo and you’ve got one fine sub to be thankful for. From word of mouth, Charlie heard about “The Robert”, told us about it and consequently it was perfect subject matter for ON THE MENU.
If you listen to WHO ASKED YOU? you’re probably aware that Dennis is a huge fan of gravy (reference our 2010 Thanksgiving show). And “The Robert” delivers. That’s 1 of 2 differences that set it apart from “The Bobby”. The other is that it’s smothered in cheese. Dennis is a huge fan of “The Bobby” so “The Robert” has some pretty strict standards to live up to. Will it deliver on the restaurants promise of 100% satisfaction gauranteed? Or will it just leave Dennis thankful for “The Bobby”? Find out on this edition!
