What do you order at Johnnie's?

I've been asked to take an off-board question public...

On the way out to my mother's, yesterday, I stopped by Johnnie's for a sandwich. Nine times out of ten, I order a "dipped/hot beef" sandwich. Yesterday happened to be one of my rare "combo dipped/hot" days.

Personally, I think that Johnnie's sausages are quite good. However, for me, a straightforward sausage sandwich has little allure, and I feel that the combo order confuses matters too much. Its a bit "baroque," as it were. Regardless, I have no love for sweet peppers. I'm not a fry guy, either. I stick with a sandwich and an ice. How about you?

Conversation need not be limited to Johnnie's...
