We stepped up one by one and ordered our sandwiches. I ordered a "Turkey Dagwood" with no onions. It was turkey, lettuce, tomato, mayo, and cheese toasted on a sub roll and dressed with their sub sauce. Tom James was next and I figured that since he was from Vermont, he would go with a vegetarian sub. But he shocked everyone and ordered a "Dagwood Special," which actually has pastrami in it. Every sandwich came with plain ruffled potato chips and that was about it for the chip selection. They also had very few beverage options and the only desserts available were some cookies. Clearly, Dagwood's is only concerned with sandwiches, not chips, drinks and cookies.
We took a seat and waited for the food. The sandwiches came and I examined mine. It looked good. The cheese was melted and the ingredients were proportioned well. I took my first bite and was very impressed. It exceeded all expectations. The clincher for me was the dressing. I would compare it to an Italian salad dressing. This sauce was an excellent touch and really brought together the sandwich's overall taste. My only complaint is that the sandwich was too small.
I definitely plan to go back to Dagwood's next time we play the Timberwolves. I wouldn't say it's the Hoagie Grail, but the "Turkey Dagwood" was one of the best sandwiches I've had in a long time. Also, it was nice to eat with such great guys. A sandwich is always better in good company.
