Whether rolled or sliced or pocketed, bread is just
bread until someone puts something between it. How
and what ingredients are put into a sandwich depends
on creativity, and the sandwich restuarants in Chapel
Hill each offer unique and delicious variations.
Satilack's at 203 E. Franklin S. offers yogurt, bagels
and sandwiches which range in price from $1.50
$4.50. Having specialty sandwiches named the Dr.
Frank Special, the John Hill and the Super Sprout,
the restaurant has its own following. Manager Don
McLellan said, "We just try to serve a good product.
IVe been eating here 10 years and I still enjoy it."
Open from 11 a.m.-l a.m., Sadlack's also has a
Further west on Franklin Street, Subway offers
half-foot and foot-long submarines for $2.50-$4.
Some sandwiches are filled with exotic things like
meatballs and seafood salad, but the favorites are
the sandwiches loaded with sliced deli meat.
Subway is convenient for the partier, the tailgater
and the late-night snacker too. Tailgate and fraternity
partiers often find themselves feasting on a six-foot
sub from Subway. At $40, Burke calls them a
bargain. She said, "They feed 20-25 people, plus
they're a lot of fun." Open until 2 a.m. on weeknights
and 3 a.m. on weekends, the shop also caters to those
with nocturnal munchies,
For everyone who ever loved delicatessan food,
Tripodi's II Uptown can be found downstairs in
Franklin Center. Manager Kevin Guyette said, "It's
a good location, but tucked away. A lot of people
don't know we're down here." The restaurant is open
11 a.m.-10 p.m. "on Friday and Saturday and until
9 p.m. on other nights serving a wide variety of
sandwiches, bagels, blintzes, pasta salads and pastries.
The most popular sandwich is the croissant sandwich
which is filled with a different meat salad of sliced
meat every day.
Tripodi's has also many special services. For
football Saturdays they sell prepackaged tailgate
lunches for two to four people which contain meats,
cheeses, bread and condiments. Catering and selling
sliced meat and other items by carry out is also a
part of Tripodi's. Guyette said, "We're more than
just a restaurant, we're a deli too."
Another sandwich restaurant near campus is Molly
Maguire's located in the back of the NCNB Plaza
on Rosemary Street. Serving food continuously from
11:30 a.m.-10 p.m., the restaurant has soups,
sandwiches, Mexican entrees and salads for around
$4. Specialties include shrimp gumbo, vegetarian
dishes prepared without monosodium glutamate,
. bacon cheeseburgers, and a sandwich called a grinder
(ham, turkey, salami and Italian dressing). Bartender
David Bollinger said,. "We have the best chili in town.
ItH clear out your sinuses."
Molly's also has an Irish pub atmosphere, and
Bollinger said, "What the manager has done is make
it real airy and open with a lot of glass." Offering
three imported eers on lap, the restaurant bar
attracts many people from other countries.
The Looking Glass Cafe, located in University
Square is another sandwich restaurant offering more
than sandwiches. Custom-made hamburgers, soups,
muffins, tarts and a large salad bar and its specialty,
vegetarian sandwiches, can be found here for $1.50
$3.95. Open seven days a week from 9 a.m.-midnight.
Opening this week at 416 W. Franklin St., the
Coney Express will provide Coney Island hot dogs
to Chapel Hill. The 75 cent hot dogs are similar to
the original coney dogs from New York: mustard,
onions, chili and cole slaw if desired on a hot dog
and bun. The menu is not extensive, serving the hot
dogs, sloppy joes and chili and beans, but the sauces
are made fresh daily. Pat Risk, co-owner with her
husband John Risk, said, "We want to specialize in
being fast. That's the main reason behind the 'express'
in our name." The Coney Express will be open from
10 a.m.-2 a.m. seven days a week.
A choice for chicken-lovers
By MIKE ALTIERI
Q: Why did the chicken cross
A: To get away from Chapel
Hill, where the fried fowl is
cooked as many ways as
anyone could like.
If a football Saturday picnic
of fried chicken sounds good,
or if you just plain have an
incredible craving, Chapel Hill
is more than prepared to serve
The well-known Time-Out in
University Square is a favorite
among UNC students.
Time-Out is probably best
known for its chicken biscuits,
according to manager Walter
Winfrey. However, ham, saus
age and steak biscuits are also
available. Time-Out's menu
offers chicken baskets, snack
packs and individual pieces as
well as french fries, potato
salad, coleslaw and gravy.
Time-Out also serves ice cream
and chocolate chip cookies.
"The big business is late at
night, especially after the bars
close. People will be lined out
the door," Winfrey said. Time
Out is open 24 hours a day and
this helps in making it a pop
ular late night spot. The inside
is clean and cool, and TV has
been added for the customers.
Time-Out has a delivery

was still groggy when the
alarm woke me up. My head felt
like a herd of elephants had gone
punking on it. I crawled out of
bed, got in the shower and felt the
tingle as I turned the water to full
pressure hot. After a couple of
minutes under the scalding
shower, I flicked the switch so
thatice-cold streams shocked my
stomach. I dried myself off with
a couple of quick movements and
realized what I needed: breakfast.
