Turkey Sandwich Madness – Final Four

It’s been a great weekend of basketball, but it’s going to be an even better week of Turkey Sandwiches.  Today, we announce the Turkey Sandwich Madness Final Four.

In the Sliced Bread Region:

Game 1 pits #1 seed, Zoka’s against Pat’s Philly Cheesesteaks.  Wow.  This is a really tough match-up and very easily could have been a battle for the championship.  When it comes down to it, I’ve only had Zoka’s once, and although it was an incredible Turkey Sandwich, I don’t know about their consistency.  I would go back and have another one, but it’s a long drive and they change their menu pretty often.  What if I drove all the way there and it wasn’t on the menu?  I don’t have to worry about that with Pat’s – and for that reason alone, they advance…it a tight one.

Game 2 has Brick Store vs. Lori’s Boar’s Head Deli.  Geez, this is another really tough one.  Both are incredible sandwiches.  Brickstore grills their TS to perfection and has that delicious mustard.  Lori’s uses Boar’s Head Turkey and serves the sandwich hot.  Lori’s wins by the slimmest of margins.  It hurts, but someone must go home.

Game 3  has long-time juggernaut, The Gristmill against Whole Foods.  This one is pretty easy as Gristmill advances since they have a secret weapon – prime sauce.  I don’t know exactly what it is, but it’s good.

Our final match-up of the day is Mendelson’s against P’sghetti’s.  My old hometown vs. my new one.  I had P’sgetti’s last time I visited St. Louis and I have to admit – it wasn’t as good as I remembered.  Mendelson’s moves on to the Final Four.

There you have it.  Our Final Four is set and it will be:

Pat’s vs. Lori’s Boar’s Head Deli

Gristmill vs. Mendelson’s

What a battle this is going to be.

One thought on “Turkey Sandwich Madness – Final Four

  1. Psghettis was robbed, reminded me of the 1st round of the 2000 NCAA tournament witch pitted OVC upstart Southeast Missour State University vs. SEC powerhouse Louisiana State University. LSU won that game with a 3 pointer in the final seconds of the game, while SEMO had held a 3 point lead going into the final minute. In retrospect I guess that SEMO team wasn’t that great, but you have to look back at them with pride. With that said Psghettis is stronger in the pork or beef based sandwich category, which is basically like putting a team from the Atlantic 10 in the West Region of the tournament…. No chance.
