Sandwiches in Modesto, CA

Pretty basic chow, sandwiches. Modesto has many places
you can go to get a sandwich, but my easy favorite is
The Brighter Side, 13th & K Streets in downtown.

It's a funky place, run by folks who never got over
being hippies. A converted service station (Flying A,
if memory serves me), it has a peculiar flow--you enter
from a side door into the sanwich prep area. Here you
find squares of paper & pencils, with which you write
your order & leave it on the end of the counter, then
exit the other side, walk along the building, and enter
the front door, then stand in line in the main room to
pay and receive your good, collect your food, get
drinks, etc. The sandwiches are just great and named
after people who work there--my fave is the Genorra, a
roast beef & veg on roll, heated enough to melt the
cheese on it.

Besides the usual fountain, there is excellent sun tea
and freshly made lemonade--not too sweet, really
lemony.

Seating...in the winter, inside is best, and there is a
potbellied stove in the middle of the room making it
delightfully warm. When the weather is good (which is
most of the time in this part of the world), there is
outside seating, both booths and picnic tables, all in
a feced, vine-covered area.

Hey--just thinking about it, I'm going there for lunch
tomorrow!
