Lee's Sandwiches - yum...

Anyone else a fan of Lee's Sandwiches in the Southwest? My favorite - the #5 pork sandwich. Being Vietnamese in origin, the flavor profile is so different from typical sandwich places. I consider it a different lunch time option and not a competitor to Subway or other chains. Prices can't be beat. I work near a major university and the students flock here at all hours.

I stood in line with a woman the other day who had no idea was to order, so she ordered the same as me. Then asked if the pork had teriyaki. I told her no, answered a few other questions for her and walked away thinking she was probably going to be disappointed. The flavor profile is so different - with cilantro and jalapeno providing the heat.

My only request would be for a whole grain option. The freshly baked-on-site crusty french bread roll is mighty tasty, but I'm trying to eat healthier these days and a different bread option would be appreciated.
