I have a few friends that talk a big game about Snarf’s. They’re constantly telling me that Snarf’s is the shit and how I need to go there more often. I tried Snarf’s when they opened up a location here in Denver about a year and a half ago. I wasn’t all that impressed back then, but I’m even less impressed now.
First, let’s get straight on the sizes of sandwiches that Snarf’s offers. They offer three sizes:
- Novice (5″) for $5.75
- Snarf’s (7″) for $6.50
- And their Pro (12″) for $9.75
Being that I am a Professional Turkey Sandwich eater, I accepted the Snarf’s challenge and ordered the Pro. I wasn’t super hungry, but I always like to plan a few meals in advance, so I thought I could eat half now and save half for later.
When I got home, I started inspect the sandwich. I don’t want to be cocky or anything, but I know a footlong when I see it, and this sandwich felt like it was a couple inches short. I wanted to know if the Pro is actually an amateur – So I measured it:
This photo actually made it look longer than it really was, so I took a closer shot:
This Looks like about 10 3/8″ sandwich to me. We’ll give Snarf’s the benefit of the doubt and call it 10 1/2″, but not any longer than that. If my math is correct, that’s a full 1 1/2″ short of what they advertise on their menu. If a Snarf’s “Pro” costs $9.75, that’s $.81/inch, which means that Snarf’s just ripped me off to the tune of $1.20.
So here’s the deal. I will be contacting Snarf’s to address this issue. I may even file a class-action lawsuit against Snarf’s on behalf of all the people that have received a 10 1/2″ sandwich when they actually bought 12 inches. Stay tuned, folks. The Turkey Sandwich Report is going to get to the bottom of this.
