Eat this: Try Quinton’s T.A.C., a fan favorite
Published on June 25th, 2013 | by Joe Lawler
The menu at Quinton’s boasts that the T.A.C. (turkey, avocado and cream cheese) is the restaurant’s most popular sandwich. When a lot of people gravitate toward one item on a menu, it’s usually a good sign. Like the opposite of how pop music works.
The T.A.C. starts with a sandwich staple: shaved turkey, and plenty of it. From there it’s loaded up with soft sliced of avocado that pretty much melt in your mouth and perfectly blend with the melted cream cheese. Lettuce is kind of boring, so Quinton’s adds alfalfa sprouts as the sandwich green of choice. The bread (your choice of of white, wheat, marble rye or croissant. I suggest croissant) gets a spread of mayo and then it’s ready to eat.
The sandwich comes with a bag of kettle chips (“The perfect side dish… for revenge!” – Sideshow Bob), or pretzels, or you can sub homemade fries for $1, curly fries, sweet potato fries or a salad for $2. I’m partial toward kettle chips, and there are a lot of varieties to choose from (regular, Parmesan & garlic, salt & vinegar, barbecue and spicy).
It’s a simple enough sandwich, but with some tasty twists to make it stand out.
