While waiting for the burger, I ordered the hot ham and Swiss cheese on rye. I can never pass up a good ham and cheese sandwich.

It was a perfect little ditty, and it was exactly what I was expecting—no complaints on this side of the counter.

This beauty includes slaw, chopped onions & house-made BBQ sauce. Chris suggested I make it double and add cheese, bacon & mayo, which is the move cause it was killer.

Just when you thought we were going to get out of there, Fred decides after perusing the breakfast menu that he needs to have a breakfast sandwich to complete his meal. I did sneak a bite of it.

It was perfect. I might’ve attempted a second bite, but Fred ate it so fast, it disappeared quickly. There’s always next time!
