We are down to the two best sandwiches in Atlanta! We are truly doing gods work here at The Dry Rub. It is Easter Weekend after all! And of course Passover to my Jewish brethren.
First I will tell you it was a difficult decision. I am a little concerned about what may happen to me after leaving the Original Cuban from the Havana in the Final Four. Let's hope my Cuban experience ends a little better than Fredo's.
The toughest decision was the Lobster Roll at The Big Ketch. I LOVE this sandwich. You combine this sandwich with their hush puppies and you will feel like you have died and gone to heaven. I couldn't recommend the sandwich anymore than I already have.
Yesterday we went to the Highland Tap and everytime I walk into here, I feel like I'm going into a true Man Cave. It's where the men are men and the women berate them for it.
My friend Jason asked me how long I've been coming here and I was surprised to say 16 years. And you know what's changed? NOTHING. That's what I love. Hell they were even playing Kansas, REO Speedwagon and Styx. And they meant it dammit.
If you have NEVER been here, you must make it a point and stop by. The Highland Tap is a true Atlanta Institution. Also, the service is always top notch. Donna did a wonderful job behind the bar. I'll see you Tuesday for 1/2 Steakburgers! Also, get your sandwich with 1/2 fries and 1/2 onion rings, you won't be disappointed.
And of course that leaves the Fox Bros Burger. Fox Bros is actually going under a renovation now, but are STILL OPEN with limited seating and of course a full to go menu.
I'm still a little surprised how much I like this sandwich. When it comes to BBQ, I'm a pork guy all they way. But this is some DAMN good brisket they put in this thing. It is well deserving of it's shot for the title.
