A quick perusal of their menu showed the steak sandwich on the menu, and even though I’d had two other steak sandwiches that week, I thought a third was in order! I’d been there in the past to have their slinger, but that had been quite some time ago and I really didn’t look at their menu all that closely, so it was a happy surprise.
