Big-Ass Sandwiches Goes Brick and Mortar!

(Original Review -- August 2011)
(Second Review -- March 2012)
(Third Review -- December 2012)
(Fourth Review -- February 2015)

It's been mentioned many a time in Portland, but yes, Big-Ass Sandwiches has finally gone brick-and-mortar! I received a special invite from the owners to attend a soft opening on Sunday, June 14! Due to the overwhelming response at the soft open, Big-Ass Sandwiches opened their brick-and-mortar spot to the general public on June 16!

+1 to the photobombing kid!

Stacy's 65 (Part 2)

(Chili Love Review -- April 2014)
(Stacy's 65 Breakfast Sandwiches Review -- September 2014)

Stacy's 65 recently reopened with a new vision: Hawaiian shave ice. While the breakfast sandwiches could be back on the menu in the future, this was a great way to take advantage of the hot summer months.
