THE SANDWICH KING IN LONG ISLAND CITY HAS FINALLY OPENED

Step right up

Where dreams come true

The Sandwich King on Vernon Boulevard has finally opened, 2019 will be a good year.  In an about-face of the current fast-casual trend, it’s cash only for the time being.  Long Live The King!

Update: spoke w/ the owner Nick Giovanniello this evening, who’s thrilled at the reception the restaurant received since it opened this past Thursday,  It’s been a little overwhelming but they should be running smoothly by the end of the week and plan on serving breakfast and doing delivery in the next week or two, or maybe three.  Oh, by mid-week they’ll also be taking credit cards – at which time you’ll be welcome to order the whole left side of the menu.

    Accidentally left this comment on the months old link to Sandwich King…
    Looking at the menu…how is there not a classic Italian? Salami, capicola, mortadella, provolone, lettuce, tomato, onion, oil, vinegar, salt and pepper….repeat
    C’mon Sandwich “King”

    The menu looks like anything you could order at any one of the delis on Vernon… Probably for cheaper too.

    Also, a $17 sandwich? I could grab a steak for that price…

      That’s standard in NYC, it’s $22 for a hot pastrami sandwich at Sarge’s Deli in Murray Hill and Katz’s on the LES

      • j rashnee says:

        Yep, and if the legendary Katz deli opens up on Vernon blvd then I’ll pay $22…

        Regardless, looking forward to trying this spot as a high quality sandwich spot is needed

    Fun Fact: Virtually all (all?) of the soft drink inventory is expired. My girlfriend and I got sandwiches, sides and drinks today and our sodas apparently went bad in July and August of 2018. And while soda doesn’t really spoil, it sure does go flat.

    The sandwiches were okay but pretty overpriced considering they weren’t all that special.

    I went in last night and didn’t find it that expensive $7 for tuna salad on a hero that’s probably 12+ inches. They’re definitely still working the kinks out, but hopefully get a flow shortly.

    I am excited to try. We need more “neighborhood” joints. Too many restaurants try to be “artisanal” or foodiegramable…..we live in a residential neighborhood that should be focused on keeping residents local for meals and entertainment. If we can establish a good “home” culture, the insta-crowd will follow. I hope this place sticks

    Update: Went and tried the ‘home made roast beef’ this weekend. Overall I liked it, but a few comments for the owner:

    – Create a little more organization around the ordering process
    – Play up your breads a bit more (that is a major part of the sandwich)
    – Make sure everyone can try a slice of the meat
    – Roast beef could be a bit juicier.

    But great place, good value, and I’ll be back
