Where do they get that wonderful bread?

This is where I go when I want a really good sub sandwich. The sandwich chains do a good job at a reasonable price, but McGurkee’s sandwiches are a cut above the rest. Their bread is exactly how I like it; very fresh, with a thin, crispy crust. Soft inside like a genuine French baguette should... read more

A little hidden sandwich shop on the corner of Thomas Road and 15th Avenue in Phoenix makes the best sandwiches you have ever tasted. It's very unassuming, has a broken up concrete corner of a parking lot, but, oh, what a sandwich you can get! The place is completely jammed at lunch time and you may have a problem finding... More
