Top Round is a new sandwich shop that just opened in our neighborhood. Warning....there is nothing healthy offered here. HOWEVER, the sandwiches are DELICIOUS. Uh oh. I can definitely see this becoming an addiction.
The beef is thinly sliced, placed, steaming hot on a toasted bun with various sauces, and accoutrements. I ordered the Beef and Cheese, accompanied by BBQ sauce. Larry ordered the Horse and Hole, which consists of beef with Provolone cheese, horseradish cream and roasted mushrooms. You can get horse radish cream and BBQ sauce which they call "round" sauce on the side. The horse radish cream is the best I've ever tasted....better than Lawry's! Larry ordered a small chocolate shake and said it was yummy. We did not order any of the French fry selections, nor did we try their "custard" which is really soft-serve vanilla ice cream with various toppings. Ack! There is nothing green served at this restaurant.
Top Round is a former doughnut shop, so it's not huge, however there is seating inside and a few tables on the patio. The place is very slick and art-directed in a Googie style. They have one of those fancy multi-drink machines.
The sandwiches are wrapped to go, so this is a perfect stop for a take-home dinner. Prepare a nice, fresh green salad at home to go along with your sandwich and it's almost a healthy meal!
