3rd & Eats

Freshly carved sandwiches.

From April 2006 Dirt Cheap Eats

A huge slab of roast beef, its exterior crisply charred, sits gleaming on a cutting board. Close by, steam rises from a freshly roasted turkey breast. Between them, a server with a sharp knife and a smile--sometimes a song--waits to slice abundant portions for made-to-order sandwiches such as the roast beef, known as the District ($5.10) and the turkey, or VIP ($5.10). In a world of chain sandwich shops, 3rd & Eats is a small nonprofit restaurant run in partnership with Community Family Life Services for the poor and homeless. It not only competes with the big boys, it thrives.
