I had my first Maid Rite Sandwich yesterday but it was not from a Maid Rite outlet. It was made at an Independent Restaurant in Phoenix AZ, The Phoenix City Grille
. Apparently the owner or the Chef is familiar with what a Maid Rite Sandwich is: http://www.phoenixcitygrille.com/
It's not a regular menu item yet but they put it on the chalkboard as a Daily Lunch Special several days a week. They're thinking about putting it on the Menu due to customer response. Never having had one before, I had no point of reference other than what I've read described on Roadfood threads.
I thought their version was TERRIFIC! Good quality beef, good onion flavor and held together with a good quality cheese. did I mention Quality?
Served with a fantastic, delicious bun from a local Bakery,
Simply Bread. http://www.simplybread.com/
The only way I can describe it is that it was a cross between an an English Muffin and a Ciabatta roll, buttered & lightly grilled. The Chef from Simply Bread lead a team that won the World-wide Bread Making Olympics, They beat all the European Teams!
If you're a Snowbird from the Midwest or a local, I suggest you check it out! I think it's usually on the Chalkboard for Saturday Lunch & one other day
