With soccer season in full swing, we are an on-the-go family looking for beyond-the-burger options that are quick, healthy and tasty. Which Wich easily met all of our requirements.
What’s on the menu: What isn’t? Which Wich really is the home of superior sandwiches – there are well over 50 items you can select to build your ’wich. Of special note is the “Comforts” section with the Elvis Wich (peanut butter, honey, bacon and banana) and the BBQ Pork & Slaw Wich. Breakfast options are available all day and include huevos rancheros.
Why kids will like it: Many sandwich restaurants offer only the usual grilled cheese or PB&J on the kids’ menu. At Which Wich, my boys could choose among several “Kidswich” options, including roast beef and a cheese pizzawich. And they were especially happy to circle “no crust” on their wheat bread selections. Each kid’s meal also includes milk, chocolate milk, juice or soda and a Wich Krispie snack.
Why parents will like it: I don’t know of any other place that features such a vast range of toppings, including hummus, pesto, sauerkraut, salsa, mushrooms, coleslaw, hot pepper mix and even Cheez Whiz. The vegetarian options include a tasty black bean patty, and when topped with fresh avocado, salsa and an amazing olive salad, it easily merits a top spot on my personal favorite list. A Georgia dad made headlines after unsuccessfully attempting to eat “The Wicked” sandwich (five meats and three cheeses). My husband was tempted to try it, but decided to go with the Italian Grinder instead.
