Just had a cold meatloaf sandie at Blue Ribbon

And now I'm feeling blue. :( Ordered a special, meatloaf sandwich with spicy mayo, got it home, and took a bite. The loaf was a square block of cold meat. Very depressing. Got a side of cheese mash, which was notably devoid of deliciousness. Green beans were good. Hmph.

    1. It's been my experience that true meatloaf sandwich devotees (I'm married to one) *want* the meat to be cold. Although I can totally see that that would be off-putting if you were expecting it to be hot.

        Absoultely cold, If was warm I'd send it back.

      2. I will cheerfully eat a cold meatloaf sandwich made from leftovers in the fridge. But a meatloaf special from Blue Ribbon had better be hot and toasty, I agree.

        1. I generally prefer cold, myself, but expectations matter.

          1. I had a decent (tasting) pastrami sandwich from the Arlington branch about a month ago. While it tasted good when eaten with a fork and knife, it wasn't a well executed sandwich. I resolved to stick to the basics there after that.

            Of course now I'm locked into to three more Groupon supported lunches, so may have to poke around the menu a little.
