Mr. Pickle’s Sandwich Shop

29 Jan

Mr. Pickle’s Sandwich Shop is a chain with 33 different locations around California. I had heard many good things about Mr. Pickles, so after I finished applying for my passport in Daly City, I decided I would skip the usual In & Out Double Double to try something new. I had been walking around all day and I was starved! I ordered without having looked at the menu for more than a minute. I knew almost immediately that the Tony Soprano sandwich was the one for me.

Apparently, their menus slightly vary from location to location, because according to their online menu they only have a sandwich by the name of the Italian Stallion Ham, Salami, pastrami, & dressing. So I’m guessing each location makes up their own sandwich names.
I ordered everything my sandwich, with toasted Dutch Crunch bread and everything on it.
The sandwich tasted just as you might imagine, like a salad bar getting ruthlessly berated by piles of meat for “protection money”. It was awesome. I spent around $8 and watched Judge Judy on the dilapidated television they had there, but the sandwich was entirely worth it.

Mr. Pickle’s walls were adorned with various sports¬†memorabilia along with the faces of many celebrities both living and deceased. It was a good decor to check out while you were waiting for your food. However, I did not wait long for my sandwich, due to there only being one other customer who came in for the entire 20 minutes I was there. I think it was due to the foggy day, because most locals I talked to have something good to say about Mr. Pickles (The postal worker who I was talking with earlier tried to convince me to buy his favorite sandwich). I left Mr. Pickles more than satisfied, ¬†even a little too full to make the trek back to my home (comfortably). The sandwich I got rivals one of my other favorite sandwich joints in SF,¬†Gene’s Liquors. If I’m ever in the vicinity of a Mr. Pickles, I would definitely visit again.

      Glad you enjoyed the post. This was quite a long time ago and I don’t really have the pictures anymore. Sorry about that!
