A Sandwich a Day: The Goat Cheese and Bacon from Uncle Uber's Sammich Shop

A Sandwich a Day

A different sandwich profiled every single day.

In this great country of ours, one could eat a different sandwich every day of the year—so that's what we'll do. Here's A Sandwich a Day, our daily look at sandwiches around the country. Got a sandwich we should check out? Let us know. —The Mgmt.


Uncle Uber's Sammich Shop in Dallas's Deep Ellum neighborhood hasn't been open very long, but over the last few months they've managed to make some serious, er, sammiches. Nomenclature aside, you should order Uncle Uber's Goat Cheese and Bacon ($6.29). The applewood smoked bacon and slices of cucumber and avocado give it a fresh taste, almost reminiscent of a BLT, but then you have that thick, rich layer of goat cheese that makes it far more substantial than its BLT cousin.

The sourdough bread, well toasted on their griddle, is thick enough to not get pushed around and disfigured by the plentiful crispy bacon.

Add Zapp's Voodoo Gumbo potato chips for another $1.50 and you're looking at a solid lunch under $10. It's a convenient lunch spot for those in downtown Dallas.
