Way too long since we had a good crawl!

Lunchbox recently tasted what he called the best combo outside of Chicago, which of course put my hackles on full alert. So we're going to settle this. And while we're at it, there's a new Chicago dog place in Tempe that looks very promising as well. (Natural casing Vienna + fresh cut fries? Hell yes.) So the schedule is Lunchbox's pick, then my pick, with a little Vienna Beef interlude between them.

As always, the schedule for crawls is a best estimate, though we've gotten pretty good at timing them out. Here are the stops:

11:00 AM — Not Your Typical Deli
www.nytdeli.com
1166 S Gilbert Road
Gilbert, AZ 85296
480.794.1116

12:00 PM — Messana's Chicago Hot Dogs
messanaschicagohotdogs.business.site
744 W Elliot Road
Tempe, AZ 85284
480.219.5576

12:45 PM — Luke's of Chicago
www.lukesofchicago.com
1602 E Indian School Road
Phoenix, AZ 85016
602.264-4022

The first link, the one for the deli in Gilbert, is broken. FYI just in case anyone was trying to look at the menu.

I've been back to NYTD a couple times now, and I think something was lost in chopping up the sandwiches and sharing them. The Italian beef was great, but the Cheese Steak probably tops my list. Sorry for ever doubting you Zach!
