Quick Bites: Victory Sandwich Bar

For those of you who have been paying attention, the opening of Victory Sandwich Bar in Inman Park is old news.  For a couple of months now, Victory has been serving up a great mix of delicious sandwiches, quenching drinks and a smattering of hipster scenesters.  Even though we don't rock skinny jeans or ironic glasses, this place has quickly captured our fancy and I felt we couldn't go on without giving Victory its due, however late.

I'm gonna start with my favorite drink at Victory - the Jack and Coke Slushy.  I was a little skeptical at first, as Jack and Coke reminds of me the kind of drink you order from the open bar at a wedding when you're 13 and that anything in slushy form, spinning endlessly in that clear plastic dispenser, brings to mind either 7-Eleven or something in a 3-foot tall plastic cup sold on the sidewalk in New Orleans.  You can imagine my surprise when I found myself ordering a second, then a third and finally a fourth with an extra shot of Jack on top.  They are delicious, just sweet enough and oh so addictive.  

As for sandwiches, Victory's are right up there with any of my favorite lunch spots in the city.  The menu offers a small but diverse array of three-bite sandwiches.  Order two and you've got a satisfying lunch, served on H&F Bread Co. bread that is so good it almost steals the show from the meat, toppings and spreads contained within.  So far, my faves are the Castro, their take on a Cuban, and the Lamborghini, featuring Italian meats, fontina cheese and a pesto-esque spread.  

While you might not choose Victory as a dinner destination unless you're as much into drinking your dinner as you are eating it, it's a great lunch spot or the perfect place to hang out with friends and enjoy some drinks (or a game of ping pong) late into the night.
