The List: Victory Sandwich Bar
One thing about the Creative Loafing Best Dish eating adventure, you have to be quick to find the food before the menu items disappear. Unfortunately, the window has closed for the "Beast on Yeast" sandwich at the Victory Sandwich Bar which was a pot roast sandwich. Still, there are plenty of other reasons to visit this spot.
Aside from the food, which I'll get to, the place has a fun, casual vibe. You'll love the patio, particularly in the fall which is usually crowded and sports the occasional neighborhood dog.If you have to sit inside, the place is still inviting. We went in the late afternoon between crowds, so there wasn't a wait.
You can park either on the street or in their little parking lot. This is the biggest challenge of eating here, but it's worth the effort. Because the reason you go to Victory is for the food. Most sandwiches are $4.00 and are small in size. This is ideal if you want to have more than one taste or if you want a meal on the smaller side of the equation. "Porky's revenge" is a perfect bite of Texas BBQ complete with a perfectly seasoned pickle. YUM.Or perhaps you'd like a taste of Vietnamese flavors? You could do worse than ordering the Bahn Mi which is smaller and lighter than Lee's Bakery fare, but still tasty.I'll have to explore more of the sides because the watermelon salad was merely average.So while I didn't find anything particularly "list worthy" from my limited sampling, as sandwich bars go, Victory is definitely on my list of places to visit again.
