She's a sandwich artist. Does that mean she paints sandwiches? Maybe sculpts them from clay? Etches em in stone?

LadyJ 6 years, 9 months ago

Or she could make art using sandwiches. Now that would be interesting.

cj123 6 years, 9 months ago

Or should could be working at a sandwich shop and better to say sandwich artist! Just like saying a customer service representative instead of saying a cashier! Sounds better!

So, it's still good to me and I don't have to make it.

La Parilla: their chille rellenos are unmatched hereabout, though El Mezcal tries...

Cait McKnelly 6 years, 9 months ago

DIST beat me to it. El Mezcal - The Burrito Gigante, especially if I can get some of their white cheese queso to go on it. Chipotle is a chain owned by Mickey D's, Elizabeth. Philistine.

Chipotle left McDs with their $22 per share IPO in Jan. 2006 and McDs finally gave up their shares in Oct. of that year. CMG closed at $334 on Monday; not a bad ride. A Chipotle bowl, w/o a shell, rice or sour cream is the healthier option.

Scott Morgan 6 years, 9 months ago

cait, Chipotle left the Mickey D's family a few years ago, but boy howdy was it fun to drop that little tidbit in conversations.

Talk about silencing the food elite, the fact what some viewed as a little Mexican joint struggling to make ends meet.

Gotta agree with Jesse here! There isn't much downtown that will get me to feed the meter but Pad Thai from Zen Zero will do it.

Taxburgers....hilarious!!!! "would you like a side of Compton fries with your order?"

Compton fries: french fries known to takeover taxpayers' hamburger buns and use them as free parking garages.

Scott Morgan 6 years, 9 months ago

Johnny in Norte Lawrence does a slider about as good as it gets. Papa Kenos can make a pizza hum when everything is correct.

KSChick1 6 years, 9 months ago

Drunken Noodles at Zen Zero... extra scallions, extra garlic, medium heat... classic burger at Dempseys... steak night at Slow Ride but their chicken quesadillas are pretty good too... reuben or shrimp po'boy at Terrebonne Po'Boys... chicken marsala at Paisano's... southwest eggrolls at Chilis... pork tenderloin at Set Em Up Jack's...

Free State prepares a mighty tasty pint of Brinkley's Maibock...not exactly a dish, but it's served with perfect presentation every time.

puddleglum 6 years, 9 months ago

hard to drink anything named after goat glands...... Free state should bring back the crimson berry, instead of making it a one week a year beer. I love hearing the brewmaster complain about the berries clogging the lines....what a whiner. go to anywhere in fort collins and you will wonder why free state even exists....and I am going to free state friday night....ha ha! still love the place.

23rd Street Brewery- "The Bill Self" It's their Mac and Cheese w/ buffalo chicken tenders on top!

Kimberly Grosse 6 years, 9 months ago

The Mirth! Chicken salad pita sandwich or the granola are my favorites.

Russell Fryberger 6 years, 9 months ago

Anything cooked at Bergerfry's Grill. Located on my back porch.

lunacydetector 6 years, 9 months ago

the sandwich artist must have been upset when brownback cut funding.....but there's always final friday to display and sell her goods.

which begs the artists pay sales tax or capital gains when they sell a creation?

lunacydetector 6 years, 9 months ago

my favorite dish is the hush puppy, a tasteless deep fried ball of bread. sold only at long john slivers

MarcoPogo 6 years, 9 months ago

The pastrami baguette at Free State. Drunken noodles at Thai House. The Conroy's Favorite. The Mac and Cheese at Basil Leaf. Pizza at Johnny's North.

Terry Sexton 6 years, 9 months ago

The Happy Farmer omelet at MIrth is very good.

Deja Coffin 6 years, 9 months ago

It was an appetizer at Uno's, or the turkey and artichoke sandwich at Bambinos, then again Mass. Street deli had great sandwiches, or the chocolate ice cream with almonds in it at Baskin Robbins, ugh. All my favorite places to eat always end up leaving me. As long as I can still get the very occasional potato skins from Johnny's I'll be good.

cheese quesidillas and tacos at El Matador

schula 6 years, 9 months ago

Pad Thai from Zen Zero Penne Abruzzi from Paisano's Flaming Cheese from Mad Greek

A long time ago, it was the Blackened Snapper at Paradise Cafe (I sure miss that place)

Bill Lee 6 years, 9 months ago

An omlette at First Watch. I especially like the one with sausage gravy over it.

Crazy_Larry 6 years, 9 months ago

Paisano's used to have an awesome dish they called 'pasta crusted salmon' that I couldn't get enough of, but they quit serving it. Now my favorite is at Dempsey's Burger Pub: Smoked Stacked Burger with an egg on top, salty sweet potato fries and a house salad.

Irenaku 6 years, 9 months ago

sniff....Paradise Cafe...I miss it, too.

Ants on a tree at Jade Garden Most items at El Matador

mdrndgtl 6 years, 9 months ago

I really enjoy everything Ingredient offers. Just kidding, everything is terrible.

Shadysides 6 years, 8 months ago

Tortas Jalisco - Tacos de birria when you can get them (I'm told they will be a permanent menu item at the downtown location), any other time, anything on the menu is better than anything else in town. Adobada meat is truly a gift. Diablo fish tacos heat things up nicely.

Wa is a close runner up.

John_Tesh 6 years, 8 months ago

depends on mood.

american food is a tie between applebees/chillis

mexican tie between salty iguana/el mezcal

Catfish dinner with a Newcastle or two at Set-em Up Jack's.
