Beaumont's Monthly Crave: Sandwiches
Webster’s Dictionary defines a sandwich as a piece of meat between two slices of bread.
The concept of sandwiches sound so simple, yet all across Southeast Texas many varieties are offered.
What is it that makes a sandwich so delicious? First off, the convenience and the price. Second, the culture that inspires the flavors and ingredients.
Whether you crave something classic like a turkey club on wheat, or gourmet, such as a marinated pork tenderloin with curry mayo on foccacia, we have the best options for your time and budget.
