I just want to thank everyone who recommended that I try Jake's, since I'm new in town. I walked in there a week ago, and was instantly delighted by the delicious smells in that place... all that fresh corned beef and such, cooking. I couldn't resist the reuben sandwiches I saw others ordering, so I dropped my $8+ dollars on one, and I was not disappointed!!
Then today I was driving around town with my tummy growling, thinking how wonderful a hot steaming Jake's sandwich would be, and I drove out there and they were closed. I was disappointed, but yet... I was very happy that the owner gave his employees a long Christmas weekend off. :)
Is there anyone in the Milwaukee area who hasn't tried Jake's? I also really enjoy Potbelly.... I hope you will all forgive me, I know it's a chain and all. But their toasty chicken salad sandwiches are so delicious, especially with some hot giardinara on top... :) That's what I had this afternoon, in substitution for a Jake's sandwich. ;)
Happy holidays, everyone.
