Roast Beef sandwich withdrawal Fri, 09/22/06 11:36 AM (permalink)
I moved down to CT and can't find a decent roast beef sandwich.

I'm originally from Peabody, my favorites are:

1) Land & Sea in Peabody
2) Big Fred's in Salem
3) Bill & Bob's (many locations)
4) Kelly's (many locations)

I don't want to resort to Arby's or even worse Roy Rogers.

Does anybody know where I can get a good "North Shore style" roast beef without having to drive 3 hours??

Please post your favorites.

Thanks,

Smitty

    From a past RF post via Google:

    "North Shore beef with sauce and mayo. Rare, fresh,thin-sliced top or steamship round piled high on a butter-grilled bun, and slathered with mayo and sweet, tangy "BBQ" sauce. Some people like 'em "three way" (sauce, mayo, american cheese) and some places will offer onion, horseradish, mustard."

    Make them at home.

          I don't know where you are in Connecticut, but[url='http://www.roadfood.com/Reviews/Writeup.aspx?ReviewID=2129&RefID=2092']Shiek's[/url] in Torrington makes a great Roast Beef sandwich. It's different from what you get on the North Shore, but pretty darn wonderful.

            Thanks for the replies, I'm actually about 40 minutes southeast of Hartford on Rt 2.

            I'm going up to the North Shore tomorrow, I'm going to try and get some sauce so I can make my own...

              Golden Pizza, on rte 12 in Norwich, CT, makes the best roast beef grinder I've ever had. rare meat and cheese piled on fresh bread, I always have to get one when I go back home (i'm in east tn). Great Oaks pizza is close, they use lots of provolone and good meat

                Our little Hoosier grocery/gas station in the small town nearby has an old meat cast full of the usual deli meats and cheeses and 'salads'. A couple of little old ladies sell 'regular' (as opposed to deli-special) sandwiches and take-out cups of slaw, potato salad, and now hot chili from a couple of slow-cookers. They use regular Wonder Bread with a squirt bottle of Mustard or Mayo as the condiment of choice. A sandwich consists of the bread and dressing, 2 reasonable slices of Roast Beef, and (for me) 2 slices of red Onion and 2 Slices of tomato. Various cold-cuts and sliced cheeses are available. Each comes with a 'Trick or Treat' sized bag of Fritos or chips.

                I bother to describe this rather ordinary sandwich (looks a lot like one I would make here at home frequently) because the Ladies who make them seem so friendly and want to feed the working boys who stop for gas or a coke, and pick up a couple of sandwiches for lunch while they are in the place. The best part is the Sandwich sells for $1.50 each- no matter what flavor or filling!!. Such a deal! I love them!

                  Since you will be visiting the North Shore soon,
                  My favorite roast beef places (along with your suggestions)are Harrisons in N Andover and Nick's Famous in North Beverly
