    You can ask for provolone if you want it, though.

    If you've never been there before, though, I suggest you try the #5 or #13.
    They're traditional Jersey Shore style cold italian subs. Lots of vinegar and oil is a must.
    Your best italians actually get better if you let them sit for a while, everything melds together (particularly the oil into the bread).

    Around Philly, american is the standard cheese you'll get on a cheesesteak, but in South Philly you get your choice of whiz, american or provolone. I'm partial to the whiz.

    What is a double decker? Are they available downtown? You got me curious- I might have to try on this summer.
    I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.

    Sometimes it seems like 50% of the restaurants in San Antonio serve Mexican food, but we try to consume it sparingly.

    Bill Miller's is the BBQ of choice locally, but it's nothing special. (How they managed to open 60 locations in the metro area serving that food is one of life's great mysteries.) Rudy's is my favorite of the chains. I think the closest Rudy's to you is probably the one in Lubbock.

    Aside from airport layovers, I've only been to Dallas once. At that time I was focused on getting in and out of the city as quickly as possible, so I am unenlightened about Dickey's.

    A double-decker is really two sandwiches in one (they are HUGE!). TeamMorris and I usually share one. You get to choose your bread (or combination of breads), two-four meats (all the same or combinations), and cheese). They build two sandwiches with with all the fixings and stack them up. Literally, they fill a styrofoam "doggie bag" box. Even when cut into the traditional four sections they sometimes hard to handle. The proportions of all the ingredients are huge; sometimes I can only eat one section.

    My favorite is ham and roast beef on rye and pumpernickle with provolone and swiss (and lettuce, tomato, and mayo on each layer). They always top it off with two big, big kosher pickles and chips too.

    We usually grab our on the way to the game at the Red Squirrel (Walnut between 4th and 3rd). They also make really good ones at Camp Washington Chili (I think that's on Columbia Parkway). I know other places have them, but these are the only two I'm familiar with.

    Re: Thin-sliced cheese

    My other complaint about this area, and many chain supermarkets for that matter is Italian bread.

    It should be in a paper sleeve hot out of the oven. None if this cellophane or plastic. The crust is supposed to be rustic and crusty! It's Italian bread.

    I haven't had good Italian bread since I lived in Liverpool N.Y.

    Blue Ash Chili has a good double-decker as well.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    Dickey's is pretty good, but the sauce is a little sweet for my taste. There is a mongolian BBQ in Grand Prairie called Bidi's that is awesome. pricey though, for me at least. but i go to dallas once a year for training. i always blow my meal money for one day on a dinner there.

    Man, I would kill for some good fresh out of the oven Sourdough bread right now. Scott's Seafood in San Francisco or Marin Joes up in Corte Madera.

    Yeah, baby.

    TB's favorite is sourdough. She used to bring it home with her when she had business trips to California.

    Actually, they sell this at Meijer. My problem is that I can't get it all eaten before it gets hard in the brown paper bag. But it's good!
