Earl of Sandwich

Earl of Sandwich is a national chain with several spots in Las Vegas, Nevada. I went to the one located within Planet Hollywood hotel and casino on the Las Vegas Strip.

This spot on the strip has about 2,500 Yelp reviews. Good grief. Since there's no Earl of Sandwich in the Pacific NW (but happens to be in many other states), it made me that much more curious to try it.

This location inside Planet Hollywood has good ambiance. Even got all the Earls of Sandwich on one of the walls. Larger portrait for the actual guy responsible for creating the sandwich. I guess we can all thank him now for being such a gambling addict.

Earl of Sandwich makes their own artisan bread, basically amounting to a buttery sandwich roll that lightly toasts in their conveyor-belt oven. Each sandwich is made and toasted to order.

I had one of the signature sandwiches: the Full Montagu ($6.49). Juicy, tender slices of meat, mustard, lettuce, and tomato. The lettuce looked a bit wilted, not sure if that was from it going through the oven. Added some Grey Poupon just for the hell of it.

Frankly, the sandwich was small for the amount paid. Merely a snack in my eyes.

There are usually a couple different types of coffee, a Kona blend and a dark roast. Good coffee here, and you can help yourself for a couple bucks.

Ha, they gave me the soft drink cup instead
On the right is one of those vibrating pagers
Good sandwich overall, good service. At the end of the day, I liked what I saw. 7/10
