I’ve heard some really good things about Earl of Sandwich from my friends, so I had to go this time. Earl of Sandwich is just a sandwich shop inside Planet Hollywood in the Miracle Mile shops. It’s a very popular place to go because 1. It’s cheap, and 2. It’s open 24 hours a day. There’s a club right across the hallway from it, and it would be good place to feed your hunger before, during, or after a drunken night. While we were there a huge line did form at that rock club.
To order, you line up, order your sandwich, and along the way pick up some drinks, chips, and side salads. At the end of the line, you pay, and they give you a pager-thing. Go find a seat, and when your pager vibrates, go up and get your food.
For less than $40, I ordered 5 sandwiches, and 5 sides for me and my family. I had the Italian, while the others got The Original 1762 (Roast Beef), and I think a Ham & Swiss. I also grabbed a bunch of salads along the way too – Pasta Salad, Macaroni Salad, Potato Salad, and Coleslaw at $1.79 each.
The sandwiches are kind of small, but they are only about $5. They are really good though. Hot sandwiches with a decent amount of quality meats, cheeses, and some veg inside. The Italian comes with Salami, Capicola, Roasted Ham, and Mortadella, with a zesty Italian dressing, Mozzarella, and Tomatoes. There’s a good mix of Italian deli meats there, with a bit of heat from the Capicola. The rest of the meats were very tender, and it wasn’t too salty. The cheese was nice and melted, and the dressing added a bit of sour contrast. The bread was pretty good too, with a crunchy top, and fairly soft inside. Hard to complain for $5-ish. The pasta salads were pretty good too, and my favourite was the Pasta salad, because it had nice fresh vegetables and a lot lighter than the other mayo based salads.
If I was out in Vegas and about to end the night, I’d definitely head over here for some quick and cheap eats before passing out. We went on a Friday night and the line was quite long, but moved really quickly. There’s quite a bit of seating, but somehow it was kind of hard to get a seat that night. It’s not the best sandwich ever, but it probably the best bang for your buck.
