This tour is totally dedicated to the art of the sandwich. You will visit and devour meats that have been marinated from 24 hours – 3 days. This tour promises to include menu items that are slow cooked, sloppy, and stacked with meat. The only prerequisite is plenty of napkins, two hands and maybe a fork. Are you “Insanewich” enough to join us?
