Sandwiches popular with students The Daily Tar HeelThursday, September 6, 19849B By NANCY ATKINSON Staff Writer 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 delivery service. 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 Staff Writer Q: Why did the chicken cross the road? 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 your needs. 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 service. Brady's located at 1502 E. Franklin St., Brady's is a plain, simple, old-fashioned resta raunt that puts its energy into the food and not into a fancy decor. If you're looking for a chicken dinner, Brady's is one place. They offer barbequed chicken, chicken gizzards, chicken livers and a half golden brown chicken. These entrees come with hushpuppies, cole slaw, French fries and rolls. The prices are reasonable, $4.50 to $5 for chicken entrees. If you are looking for some thing other than chicken, Brady's also offers steaks, seafood and a variety of sand wiches and salads. Takeout service is available for every item on their menu, as well. Another well-known chickery is the Golden Skillet, which is found at the end of W. Franklin St. near Carrboro. The Golden Skillet deals in nothing other than fried chicken and is very similar to other fast-food chicken resta raunts. Chicken is available in a variety of portions. In addi tion to chicken pieces, chicken sandwiches and assorted dinners with liver and barbeque are also on the menu.
