[DC Metro Area] Sloppy Joe's?

ipsedixit Jun 16, 2010 04:00 PM

Any place to find a good quality sloppy joe sandwich in the metro area?

    I'm guessing that the Weenie Beenie may have them? Makes me long for the loose meat in the Midwest.

      Not a sloppy joe, but flavors reminiscent to it: Eventide's bison sliders. They really reminded me of a good sloppy joe.

        G Street Food in Foggy Bottom does one. Having never had it myself, I cannot vouche for it, but my friend really liked his. The menu changes a lot but the sloppy joe seems to be a staple. http://www.gstreetfood.com/

        I second ktmoomau's post about the bison sliders at Eventide- delicious!! Another messy, insane sandwich that may bring back the same food memories as a sloppy joe (and also in Arlington) is the buffalo meatloaf sandwich at ScrewTop. It is amazing- gooey and cheesy and even a little spicey. I highly recommend it.

          What kind of sloppy joe are we talking about?

          The ground beef-tomato sauce sandwich (a la Manwich).

          Or the triple-decker deli sandwich with turkey, corned beef, roast beef, Russian dressing, swiss cheese and cole slaw? At least, that's what those of us from New Jersey call a sloppy joe.

              Definitely the ground beef variety (and hopefully better than the Manwich iteration).
