Just ONE of the sandwiches!

Just ONE of the sandwiches!

Lucky’s Sandwich Company: A few years ago a guy stumbled into Lucky’s after a few too many drinks and with a huge appetite, he then proceeded to eat 3 of their LB stuffed sandwiches. Now that is just crazy and the owner thought so as well and so he created the Overstuffed Sandwich Challenge in honor of this guys feat. Now I have written about stuffed sandwiches before (see the post for Primanti’s Brothers) and so I am really looking forward to finding a place that makes stuffed sandwiches. Lucky’s Sandwich Company was opened in 2004 and with a simple menu of sandwiches, salads, chili, chicken tenders, fries, and wings. Oh and plenty of beer.

Now I wondered why this place is called Lucky’s and I found out that it is named after a former part owner of the Cubs who was the man who got Wrigley Field built. There are 17 different sandwiches to choose from and I want to try the Fredo, which is ham, salami, capicola and swiss, just because of the name. I don’t know if it is named for Fredo Corleone but I just want to try it. If that is not enough I can even add extras such as doubling the meat, adding a fried egg, or other things. This all sounds so good to me but of course this isn’t good eats, it is crazy eats and so the crazy thing here is the overstuffed sandwich challenge. They give each person an hour to eat the 3 sandwiches of your choice and if you eat the sandwiches in under 30 minutes you don’t have to pay for them, a little incentive to eat fast.  Each sandwich is made on thick sliced french bread with your choice of meat, cheese, an egg, tomato, coleslaw, and two handfuls of fries. Finish them all in less than an hour and you get your picture on the wall.
