I’ve been driving past Chick-N-Coops around the city for years and I’ve never got myself to try it until recently. I have to say, it was really fun! My dad comes all the time for lunch, so he took K and I to introduce us. Walking into the hoffbrau was like walking into a time warp. The customers, the employees, the decor – it felt like nothing in the restaurant has changed in the last 40 years.
I got the corned beef sandwich “wet” on a roll. Wet means au jus on the bread, nothing else. So simple but so very tasty. The roll is so soft and chewy, a perfect match for the briny corned beef. This also passed the day after test.
My dad had his usual wet turkey sandwich. Mm, juicy turkey.
And, K got the wet pastrami sandwich. We all agreed the corned beef and the turkey were the winners of lunch.
We got the cole slaw as a side, but I wasn’t a fan. Too watery and too much mustard.
Chick-N-Coop was a fun adventure and I’d definitely come back again for the wet corned beef sandwich.
