NEW- The Sandwich Spot in Simi Valley

We tried this new Sandwich Spot in Simi Valley yesterday... Overall, I'd have to rate it a 4 out of 5. Why you ask!? 

Walking in, I was excited to see two fairly large tv screens with a current Football game on! Going to any restaurant that draws sports fans is usually a fun place to hang out and people watch. Except we weren't there to see the game, we were there to eat!

Looking at the menu, I couldn't decide on which sandwich to order! Almost all of them had very appealing ingredients! I then decided to post something on Facebook: asking friends to pick a number between 1 and 24 (the menu items by number). The first number called out was the number four aka "The Hulk!" Marinated chicken, avocado, bacon, all the fixings (adding their BOMB SAUCE- homemade jalapeño ranch), on a fresh sourdough roll... How could It go wrong!?  

All of the staff was very friendly! Our order was taken within five minutes of standing in line. Granted We were there a little after 1pm so they were busy! The owner was working hands on at the register while helping his staff behind the counter when needed. He seems very excited for his new restaurant to succeed, and if you know me, I'm all about promoting local businesses! 

Now getting to the 4 out of 5 rating... It took almost 20 minutes to get our sandwich! The rolls were being baked while we waited. I'm not complaining about waiting necessarily for us because we had time to hang out and wait. Going in there on a 30 minute lunch break could be a bit of a problem however! With that being said, the overall taste of the sandwich was good! I wasn't sure about the marinated chicken. It kind of reminded me of the chicken Subway uses in the microwave! I feel the sandwich would be better with a deli sliced marinated chicken instead. P.S. My hubby got "The 805" pictures below! He enjoyed it on their Dutch Crunch roll. 
 

I will definitely go back to try another sandwich (or salad). I enjoyed all of the fixings... The pickles were great! The bread was amazing and so was the sauce! Go and try something! Comment below and share your experience! Let the owner know you are excited for him and you will help spread the word! Sending 
good vibes to this new local business!!!
