Adore them, fantasize about them, can't stop till we get enough of them. (Oh... the way they make us feel...) And can you blame us? Infinitely customizable, the sandwich can be anything you dream it to be. Pesto, fried mozzarella sticks and sundried tomatoes on a croissant? Why not? Anchovy-fontina-garlic-artichoke grilled cheese? Don't expect to get any action after that bad boy, but go ahead!
Legend has it that the 4th Earl of Sandwich created the modern iteration of the sandwich as a quick snack to eat while he played cards. We say... really? It sounds a little too much like "white man discovers already existing thing and claims it as his own invention." We think the sandwich in some form or another has been around much longer. If the snacks in Vacation Bible School were really as authentic as they seemed, probably back to the time of the ancient Israelites.
But all this hypothesizing begs the question: Was that lengthy introduction necessary to review a sandwich shop? Probably not, but let's continue, shall we?
You've already heard at length about the orgasmic sammiches over at Masterpiece Deli. Now here's some place you might not have heard of.
Coming back from the mountains? This is the place to stop for fuel of the most delicious kind. Open for breakfast and lunch seven days a week, and dinner Thursday through Saturday, Choice City offers full, sit-down breakfasts and traditional entrees – but the real draw here, the thing you absolutely must order, are the sandwiches. Traditional in name, yet miles above the rest in taste, Choice City has your BLT, your Philly Cheesesteak, your Reuben (but this one has buffalo pastrami!), your Grilled Cheese – all the classics, but with hand cut house meats and cheeses and a full beer list that's been named 9th best IN THE WORLD.
That means it's good. But how are those sandwiches? Well, take a look...
You show that stomach of yours.
So let's recap.
- Crazy cool location in downtown Fort Collins
- All three meals
- Buffalo Pastrami
- Lots of beer
- Ooey, gooey cheese
- Juicy, flavorful, overstuffed mammoth sandwiches (mammwiches?)
- Duck sausage
Why are you not there yet? This place, according to our super advanced algorithm (i.e. If smells/looks good, eat it), is a serious contender for best Colorado sandwich shop.
If it were in Denver, it'd give Masterpiece Deli a run for it's money. As it is, the two sandwich gangs can occupy their own territories, both providing the denizens of their town with the absolute, unrivaled best.
