While trying to think of a place to eat lunch which had a selection on lighter meals, I just happened by Earl of Sandwich at 1160 N. Loop 1604 West. I have passed by this restaurant many times on my way to Lowes and kept saying I needed to stop in and give it a try some time. Well, today was that time.
The Earl of Sandwich is owned by the 11th Earl of Sandwich, John Montagu, whose family invented the sandwich in 1762. So they claim to know a little bit about making a great sandwich.
Earl of Sandwich is set up pretty much like other sandwiches shops where you order what you want and add extras as you wish. However, here they bake the bread as you order it. I have to say this made a big difference to me. The bread made their sandwich taste very fresh and I liked the crispiness it gave the sandwich. They say they also roast their meats every morning but since I ordered the Tuna Melt with Albacore tuna and melted aged Swiss, I cannot comment on this. I can say that I loved the tuna sandwich and I think it was the bread that made the difference. I was very impressed with Earl of Sandwich. I do think they know their way around the kitchen when it comes to sandwiches.
Besides some really good selections of Signature Hot sandwiches, they also have salads, wraps, desserts and breakfast sandwiches. I’m thinking a Brownie Cream sandwich should be a must when I go back.
Earl of Sandwich also does catering and they offer ordering online. You can also join “The eClub” to receive a FREE SANDWICH on your birthday as well as other exclusive offers. They have three location in San Antonio as well as locations in a few other states and some airports.
