It seems as though sandwiches are the new fast food craze –> think five dollar jingles and mmm mmm mmm toasty. Joining in the fray is Dallas based Which Wich? Superior Sandwiches who provides a plethora of sandwiches that can be customized by users in a unique way.
Even though they are from Dallas, Which Wich? has embraced being in San Antonio with some cool black on yellow screen prints of city landmarks and the Spurs logo. To compliment the atmosphere is the ordering process that I think is absolute genius. At the very beginning, customers select a bag for the type of sandwich they want to order (the bags are segregated on the type of meat — e.g. turkey, beef, seafood, vegetarian, etc.). You then get a red marker and check off every vegetable, sauce, and seasoning that your little heart desires. I enjoy making epic sandwiches/burgers and truly admire the breadth and quality of ingredient that Which Wich? presents to me.
A tip for all you newbies: be sure to draw a fun picture (such as a funny face, geometric design, or college logo) on the back of your bag so that you can track the progress of your sandwich through the line.
The reason I love this setup so much is because it allows you to bypass the slow/indecisive people. By making them select everything on their sandwich at the onset, you don’t have to wait forever on that person who can’t decide if they want tomatoes or not, or if ranch or Italian is their dressing of choice. As an Industrial Engineer, I approve of this process.
Again, I like to throw everything and the bathroom sink onto my sandwiches, and I can do just that at Which Wich? without any problems. Not only that, but they include generous helpings of each ingredient. When I got my sandwich it had ripped open the bag at the bottom — no joke. I chose the buffalo shrimp and loaded it up with hot peppers and extra buffalo sauce. The sandwich was very spicy and the bread was particularly good. It came in at $5.00 and, yeah, while you can gt a foot long at Subway for that price, I truly enjoy the different types of ingredients that are offered here (e.g. there are like three types of onions alone — caramelized, red, and crispy strings).
So go to Which Wich?, draw funny pictures, cut in front of the slow people, and build a sandwich that is truly a work of art!

Service: 9/10 (very nice people that are pretty eclectic themselves)
