I really love this place, Noble Sandwich Co. (formerly Noble Pig, until the inevitable trademark lawsuit).* Everything is scratch made. Two locations in Austin and one in Georgetown. I try to get here when in or near Austin, ditto for the Texas Chili Parlor, my other weakness in the weird town of Austin.
Last time I had the Noble Pig Sandwich which is their supreme reigning sandwich, IMO. This time I went with the Cuban, add bacon, because their bacon is so amazing. Fries for the side, made to order. Other sides are brussels sprouts, slaw, potato salad and more. My ever-patient side-kick had the beef tongue sandwich with brussels sprouts and loved it. They open at 10 a.m. for lunch and we were standing at the door. Open at 8 a.m. on weekends for breakfast.
This place is definitely worth a stop when in the area.
- speaking of infringement lawsuits, I saw recently that Habanera and the Gringo is now Habanera and the Guero. Apparently Gringo’s got all worried. Anyway, it’s been getting great reviews for a few years now, seems like one of our motley crew made it over there (near Hobby) some time ago.
