    Geno’s Sandwiches & Salads

    I have driven by Geno’s Sandwiches & Salads on Ashlan and Blackstone every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for the past three semesters, always wanting to stop by and try it out.

    Finally, last week I stopped by to try their food. I was intimidated and more intrigued when I saw the line stretched outside of the restaurant. I decided to stand and wait, luckily the line moved quickly.

    While waiting in line, I looked over their menu figuring out what I wanted to eat. I knew I wanted to try a sandwich, so that ruled out the salad option. They offered both cold and hot sandwiches included with a variety of meats:  roast beef, turkey and pastrami. I decided something simple; a turkey and cheddar sandwich.

    My next challenge was choosing what size sandwich I wanted. The small sandwich sounded good at $4.85, but when I saw the size of the bread I knew that it wouldn’t fill me up.  Instead, I went for the medium size at $7.25. They also offered a large sandwich for $9.70, which could be shared by two people.

    Also, I decided to purchase a drink.  Since Geno’s offered unlimited refills I decided to get a small size for $1.50—this was a mistake because the “Super Giant” size, which was at least five times bigger was only $0.30 more than the small.

    Additionally, Geno’s also offered sides to go along with sandwiches such as, macaroni salads, Italian salads, chips and cookies.

    My sandwich took about 3 minutes to be made and I was excited when it came out perfectly decorated with:  lettuce, tomato, mayonnaise, mustard, oil, vinegar and wax peppers.

    My first bite—and every other bite after that—was amazing. The bread was perfectly fluffy and fresh. The sandwich as a whole was probably the best sandwich I’ve had in my life.

    Even with the line out the door, I would definitely go back to Geno’s and wait for a sandwich. Even though I am always on a budget as a college student, paying $9.54 for my entire meal was worth every penny.

    I would recommend Geno’s to everyone that is looking for a new sandwich place that has unlimited drinks, great food, and amazing service.
