Alvin's Sandwich Shop

  • 3

I've heard a couple of good things about this place, but what are the best things to order here. I couldn't find an online menu so does anyone have any suggestions on what to order?

  1. Didn't care for the one up on Research, but there's one in San Marcos, kinda related still I guess...called Alvin Ord's. The one to get there is the Salvation Sandwich. Basically like Scholtzsky's but the bread's far better and it doesn't suck.

    1. Is this what Alvin Ord's became? There was one in Georgetown back in the late '80s, and it reminded me of Schlotzsky's before they quit caring about the food and sold the franchise to corporate interests.

        The rumor was that "Alvin" worked at the original Schlotzsky's, got fed up, and opened his own place where he improved the bread recipe and all the sandwiches.
