It seems as though there are always new lunch spots popping up around the Valley, so sometimes I don’t even notice the grand opening flags and full parking lots that accompany a restaurant opening. Lucky for me, I was stopped at a ridiculously long red light when I caught sight of the newly opened Primo Hoagies location at 1403 N. Cedar Crest Boulevard.
I’ve been a Primo devotee for about three years now, and it’s been hard for me to find a sandwich that even competes with the lunches I’ve had there. Read on for the review.
The Dishes: American Hoagie, Turkey Breast Hoagie and a side of pasta salad.
How’s it Taste? My Turkey Breast hoagie was packed with finely chopped turkey, tomatoes, shredded lettuce and seasoned with oil and vinegar. But, most importantly, I ordered it on a primo roll. Primo newbies, heed my advice; you may be tempted to pick the smallest sandwich roll, but I can guarantee it won’t taste as good as if it was on the restaurant’s primo-style roll, a hearty bread with sesame seeds. The bread makes the sandwich, and the staff at Primo knows that.
My friend opted for the American hoagie, which was made with sausage, salami, ham and American cheese. It was her first Primo experience, and I think it’s safe to say I’ve opened her eyes. We both shared a small dish of pasta salad, one of the many side dishes offered at Primo, and a bag of kettle cooked salt and vinegar chips.
Eat this Because: I’ve already given credit to Primo for being the most delicious hoagie I’ve ever had, but what makes my visits there even more appealing is the variety. There are dozens of sandwiches to choose from, so chances are every visit, you might have a whole new experience.
Tab: $23.00, including two sodas.
Etc: Primo’s offers a variety of side dishes, including pasta and macaroni salads, and desserts, so it can be your one-stop-shop for lunch or dinner.
