Stuff yourself at Tummy Stuffer

Tummy Stuffer

  I have been going to Tummy Stuffer 101 Sandwiches for more years then I can count. I discovered this location because I used to work around the corner and would go here for lunch. The sandwiches have consistently stayed  the same through out all these years so I knew it was an easy choice when looking for a place to eat lunch on a Saturday afternoon. The wife was working so the kids and I packed in the car and headed over there. My daughter got the kids meal ham and cheese, my son got the meat ball and Italian sausage and I got the monster. My son also got the combo meal which adds chips and drink, all together this cost be about $23.

  I am always worried when my daughter gets a sandwich from a place like this because she tends to not eat the sandwich and only eat the chips and fill up on soda. Today she managed to eat almost half the sandwich before she said she did not like the bread, so she proceed to finish just the ham and cheese. I was happy with that because she ate. The kids meal sandwich is about four inches long.

  My son being the bottomless pit that a thirteen year old can be ordered the regular meatball, sausage and cheese but that still was not enough for him. He said the sandwich was good, the meatballs were average sized and the sausage was mild. He said the sauce was also good and the cheese was melted well. It's hard to get an idea of what this sandwich was like when he is shoving it down his throat so fast I am not even sure he was chewing. It had to be a good sandwich because half it was gone before I even took the first bite of my own sandwich.

  The monster sandwich is my go to favorite when I come Tummy Stuffer. I ordered the large and it contains ham, turkey, roast beef, bacon and avocado. You can then have them add lettuce, tomatoes, pickles and/or onions. I got mine sans avocado and onions. One of favorites things about this sandwich shop is the bread they use. The bread is soft and chewy but still has good flavor to it. The roast beef they use is tender, the turkey is juicy, the ham is salty but not too salty and the bacon is crisp. I also really enjoy the large pieces of chopped tomatoes and pickles which add a touch of sweet and sour to each bite. Tummy Stuffer has many sandwiches that I have not tried because the monster is simply the best of them all in one large sandwich. But I would also recommend the tuna fish, that is one other sandwich I have tried and it is simply put, delicious.

  Tummy Stuffer 101 Sandwiches has so many different choices to choose from even vegetarians will be able to find something here. The small seating area can get crowded quickly during a weekday lunch rush so get there early or wait until after the lunch crowd dissipates. This Tummy Stuffer has been around since 1979 and that tells you they must be doing something right, no? I am glad I stumbled across this Tummy Stuffer ten plus years ago because whenever I am in the area a sandwich is in my future. Next time you are in the area do not waste your money at the large chain sandwich shop two doors down, resist the urge for that five dollar foot long and spend the extra cash for a sandwich that is well worth every penny.
