- Good Meal
Full Review of Everything from the diner to the food! VERY VERY GOOD! A MUST READ IF YOU WANT THE SCOOP!
Service- Connie and Wayne are amazing family friendly people (they are the owners), I met them In July08, when I returned in August (separate vacations) they remarkably remembered me. Where I was from and how many people I had with me the first visit. They made the food promptly, and catered to us as customers!
First Impressions- When I walked in I thought to my self "man I really hope this place is good, because my friend wont like me dragging them to a deli, when all they care about is drinking. When I first walked in, we were the only guest, their daughter was watching Cartoons, (I thought to myself you got to be kidding I really don't want to watch this & im sure my friends will complain).I was with 3 party guys who love sports. So I ordered and once I sat down to eat, My friends were discussing sports on the TV. the owners changed the channels to sports. That is some un-spoken service. So I gave them a plus real quick for noticing attention to their customers, Who they know absolutely nothing about, Very nice touch!
Thats a lot to me for a owner to recognize that and act without hesitating.
Personalty- When I ordered my food @ the counter, Connie introduce her self along with her husband as the owner and operator of the company. I felt really welcome since I drove out from SF, and don't have any friends out in Vegas. I felt as if i knew these people my whole life, and they were welcoming me into their home as if i was a family friend.
Environment- The Place is amazingly clean. The floors, the counters, the outside, the kitchen from what you can see when ordering.
CLEANLINESS is a must and so many companies miss that. If you go to a restaurant and walk in the bathroom and its a mess; they have no soap, old counter/toilets, what does that say about the people who work their? Well the bathroom (and, yes I am goin there!) Was spotless too. They had febreeze, lotion & tissues, available after you wash your hands. Those are the little things that make your experience feel as if your in good hands. I trust and feel confident that the owners really care about serving you to the best of their ability!
AND NOW THE FOOD!!!
So I ordered the Cajun Chicken Sandwich (ORDER THAT), I can tell you right now I hate when you get a deli sandwich and all you can taste is the bread. Well finding out after talking to Connie(owner). They get their bread fresh daily and even mid-day if they must. The Chicken was so tender & perfectly cooked, the mixture of mayo, spices and that secret kick was Amazing, the veggies were so fresh, crispy, flavorful, and full of their natural juices along with outstanding bread that is so soft, its almost like dough. Its the perfect combination! I cant remember ever & I mean ever having a sandwich that good in my 25 years of living! If So its definitely in my top 3! My friend also order the bacon sandwich and I tried a little piece of his bacon. (95% of restaurant I go cant cook bacon. At least to the point where its crispy, but not over cooked) and I must say Eat Em Sandwiches is amongst that 5%!
Now I did get the French dip, and the penne roast beef and have to say they are good for what they are but not the best. The other thing upon my 3rd visit, a guest I brought bought something like a Phillie melt but with a lot of fresh vegetables and that was amazing. big'ol chunks of grilled bell peppers, covered in stringy melted cheese in an almost hotdog style bun all toasted and with more amazing flavor from their spices!
ohh my mouth is watering thinking about it. MAN was it Good!!! ohh and last when you order all you get is a sandwich, but believe me 3 really big twenty year growing boys, walked away stuffed.
So for a out of towner who wants a solid sandwich, whether your bring family, go on a date, bring your drunk irresponsible friend, or just want a nice little quiet place for great food by yourself. Eat Em Sandwiches is the place to go!!! SO my hat is off to you, WAYNE & CONNIE for an amazing lil restaurant. I will tell all I know to go to Eat Em Sandwiches.
Only complaint there is not one in Northern California! Forget the gambling I cant wait to come back to Vegas For Eat Em!
