  1. Yea, it's pretty epic...... I have not yet been able to decide if I like theirs better or the SOaG's version.....

        Cannot handle the cold chicken on S of a G. So odd.

      2. re: Dirtywextraolives

        in complete agreement. these are my two favorites and am not sure id be able to pick.

        1. re: goldpackage

          update... went back to son of a gun the other night and... plan check is definitely my favorite of the two.

          in other news... ordered a bit differently at son of a gun this time. absolutely loved the brussels sprouts and grouper. linguine and clams were also very good.

      3. Plus 1. They also were doing a spicy version as a special last summer that was also pretty terrific.

          Both were great. Strawberry cruller is pretty fuckin tasty too.

        2. I love this sandwich and also love their fried chicken plate too.

            1. Chicken is very good, but the rest of the food there is disappointing. Oversalted and greasy.

                Every time we've gone we've ordered the sandwich and the kale caesar. Perfection every time.

                1. re: Davetannenbaum

                  I've never had anything that was oversalted & I'm a bit sensitive to that. Also, have never had a grease bomb there either. I adore the butter lettuce salad, but from the burgers, to the fried chicken & pastrami nosh sandwiches, to the fries and crullers, nothing has ever been greasy. Guess I've just been lucky. Maybe I'll go play the ponies.

                  1. re: Dirtywextraolives

                    You are lucky or I am unlucky. I went yesterday and the pastrami was nearly indelibly salty. The chicken sandwich, however was perfectly moist and crisp and pretty damn good.

                    1. re: Butter Fight

                      I guess so! Damn! Glad I didn't go by today for the pastrami nosh....I would have been heartbroken....

                2. I highly recommend hacking this sandwich by getting some smoked milk gravy on the side.

                  I don't love everything at Plan Check (That bun + pastrami = blech!!!), but that sandwich is awesome. Best thing they do there.
