Good Luck Finishing This Sandwich

A sandwich is that one food that no one can hate on. There has got to be that one certain sandwich in everybody’s life that just hits home. I believe Lucky’s sandwiches is my one certain sandwich. It should come as no surprise that I first saw this place on TV on Man vs Food. So, what makes Lucky’s so noteworthy? You could mention the size of the sandwich, you could mention the portion of meat you’ll receive, or that the coleslaw is thrown onto the sandwich, or that the fries are shoved between the buns as well. You could mention all those components, but at the end of the day, the sandwich just tastes so good.
Located in the heart of Wrigley, be sure to visit the small restaurant on a day when there is no Cubs game. I have been here about three times and for each visit, I ordered the same sandwich, the Two Bagger. This is corned beef and pastrami with the standard toppings of tomatoes, fries, and coleslaw. There is actually a DePaul-inspired sandwich called the Blue Demon that tops buffalo chicken with blue cheese and bacon. 
In all honesty, finishing just one sandwich in itself is a chore, but for those with a serious appetite - or desperate need for notoriety - there is the challenge that landed Lucky’s a spot on Man vs Food . If you can eat three sandwiches in less than an hour, you will receive that meal for free and earn a picture on the wall. Personally, the temptation of free food is so enticing I just might put myself through the delicious pain of such a challenge.
