There's a new franchise called the Earl of Sandwich. There's one at Downtown Disney in Orlando. Best damn tuna melt I've ever had. The bread is unbeatable.

      Would one of y'all enlighten me? I know about "patty melts," but surely a tuna melt is different.

      I just can't get my head around the idea of tuna sautéed with onions and cheese on rye bread!

        Guess you miss out on a little slice o' heaven, Rick.

        That's basically the idea: a grilled cheese sandwich with tuna salad in the center (should be covered by cheese on both sides, although sometimes these days open-faced). Bread and toppings can vary, but rye and onions is certainly do-able.

        Yum!

          How come this isn't in the franchise section seeing as the original poster said it was a franchise. And I agree with Rick F. A tuna melt?

            Tuna melt's like a patty melt. Tuna salad, tomato, cheese on grilled rye bread (Salami always ate them on 'The White Shadow' - where are my Depends? )

              This thread surprised me when it appeared.....back in 1977-78, there was a restaurant named "The Earl of Sandwich" on Hilton Head Island and it was a good place to eat. It was the only one I'd ever heard of so doubt very much that it was a chain way back then. It disappeared over the next few years but evidently someone, somewhere, reinvented the name for a restaurant.

              Just a bit of trivia. Maybe not very interesting but trivia nonetheless. Just another case of my living in the past.

                Not at all. Remind me to tell you about eating in Red Lobster before it became a chain.

                  That was before WWI.
