This sandwich tour of Erie marks my one year anniversary and I am going to switch some things up a little.  The first change will be the cost.  I am going to try and spend no more than $20 for two people to eat out (not including tip).  That is saving only $3 a day…

Busy with a pretty good-sized lunch crowd, I was surprised to be seated immediately at the Summer House Cafe.  Lunchtime didn’t start well seeing as how it was snowing on our walk inside.  Our server told us about the specials, none of which were sandwiches (but all still sounded amazing), and grabbed us some drinks….

The Vermont Tavern, previously known as Nelson’s Tavern,  is located at the corner of 11th Street and State Street.  The decor inside has gone through a minor redesign, but overall, it still feels the same.  Besides the two lone gentlemen drinking at the bar, Amanda and I were the only table there for dinner.  Our…

After getting a suggestion to try the food at Bistro 26 and a quick look at the menu online, I was excited to eat some of their sandwiches.  Amanda and I headed up to 3557 West 26th St. around 6:15 Monday night.  There were a few tables, but it was far from crowded.  Some of…

Calamari’s Squid Row

I had a great response to readers signing up to eat with me next week.  I wanted it to be as fair as possible, so with all the names in a hat, one of my coworkers selected Rick P. to join me.  I will let him know where we will be eating as soon as…

Steel 12

After the long holiday weekend of delicious, but not-so-healthy picnic foods, why not top it off with a fantastic visit to Steel 12 Grub & Chug. The winner of my first “Eat with Beard” contest was Rick Plonski and I met up with him around 7 o’clock Tuesday night. The restaurant was on the quiet…

Sandwiches in Review
