Phat Sammich, Birmingham, MI

Saw a write-up on this and checked out the menu...looks really good. Anybody been there yet?

  1. I saw this restaurant as I was driving down Woodward and thought to myself: "That is the most irritating name for a restaurant that there every was!" Blatant, cutesy, overly-endearing, misspelled cliches. Ughhhh!

    Anyway - I haven't been there, and I don't think I will go, despite reviews -- just because of the name of the restaurant.

    1. re: MaxSeven

      They share menus with the Tomato Soup & Cheese Sandwich restaurant on NW Hwy,
      south of 14 Miles ... PHAT = Pretty Hot and Tempting.

      The soups and sandwiches at the NW Hwy location are good. The several soups have
      been above average.

    2. Ugh, not good! Really sloppy workmanship on the sandwiches. Some of the ingredient combinations are interesting/unique, but the way they're made is completely off-putting. Everything is slathered in grease, which hides the actual flavors of the ingredients. Service is terribly slow. Unless they've gotten their act together since October/November, I would NOT recommend.
