I had recently had a French dip in Pete's presence and had told him about my French dip review hobby so I figured it would be fun to do a review over our first lunch. He doesn't seem like much of a foodie so I'm not sure just how enamored he is with my hobby, but I didn't care and I wanted a French dip.
I was impressed that when I went to order, they had an entire section on their menu for "Dip Sandwiches". They had a classic French dip, a BBQ Chicken Dip, and the Dagwood Dip, which was a burger dip with Swiss.
|The Chuckwagon Dip: 2 burgers with swiss cheese on a French roll, served with au jus, & choice of tossed salad, soup or fries|
I ordered the Chuckwagon dip because I was feeling like it and I really like burger dips with Swiss. Kidd Valley has one that is notably good. Burger dip with Swiss, really is a category unto itself. With my dip, I ordered a side salad with bleu cheese.
Plated, the dip was a true classic. The cheese was processed and a bit too creamy but overall good.
Bread: 3 - classic bread, buttered and toasted
Meat: 3 - Decent beef and a good quantity
Jus: 3 - Good enough jus
Non-meat topping: 2 - processed Swiss cheese isn't my thing and it definitely degrades the value of the sandwich
Overall: 3 of 5 - It's a hearty big sandwich that is good enough and comes with a salad, all for a price under 10. I probably won't be going back for this sandwich in particular but it's good enough in a pinch or if you are Jonesin' for beef, salty jus and creamy cheese.
Another quick note: the salad with Bleu cheese wasn't all that great. Maybe just get the fries next time.
