Isaac's Famous Grilled Sandwiches

After drinking lots of wine in the Hershey, PA area on our journey home from Bedford Springs, I was in need of a bite to eat, so my traveling/dining companion agreed to stop at Issac's Famous Grilled Sandwiches. It was not a regrettable stop. What a great place for a quick and inexpensive bite, especially if traveling.

We strolled into the Issac's in Litiz and were surprised to find that we would be seated, I thought it would be an order at the counter and find your own seat kind of joint. The place looks like a typical sandwich/fast food restaurant, booth seating, very colorful decor. With their pink flamingo logo, they have a sort of island flair to the design of the place.

But you really want to know about the food, right? A nice touch in the service area is that they also bring you a dish of pickles, kind of how a sit down place would give you a bread basket, I prefer the pickles :)

So, the sandwiches! I had something called the Salty Eagle (btw- I love all the sandwich names) which is grilled ham, swiss cheese, mustard, fresh tomatoes and lettuce. My companion had the Whopping Crane, that is sliced turkey, onions, fresh spinach, grilled with swiss cheese and honey dijon dressing. My sandwich was great, the meat was fresh and very tasty, the cheese was a nice complement, it didn't take over the sandwich, the cold tomato and lettuce was a nice contrast. My companion enjoyed his sandwich as well, he was impressed that it was indeed fresh spinach and not frozen or canned spinach. By far, we both agree the highlight of both sandwiches was the pretzel roll. Both of our sandwiches came on the pretzel roll, which is probably one of the reasons we gravitated to those choices. The rolls were soft and chewy and had that unique soft pretzel flavor that really went well with both the ham and the turkey.

This was a quick stop on our road trip and satisfied me for the ride home. I would definitely stop in again and recommend that you try it too!
