Which Wich

If you've read this blog for any length of time at all, you know how much I love to head out for a great bite to eat with the family.  As we already know, Durham is a fabulous town for food, and it's so much fun to take the kiddos out and explore it with them.  In that vein, here's a report from our latest food adventure at a new sandwich place, Which Wich, that has just opened up in S. Durham in Hope Valley Commons Shopping Center (the one with Harris Teeter and Dunkin' Donuts at Garrett and 751 and 54).

What it is:  Which Wich is a sandwich restaurant with a twist.  I was really interested to take the kids there because my boys are notoriously picky eaters, and to make it harder, they don't like lunchmeat sandwiches.  That means, we sometimes have trouble going to some of the local sandwich restaurants.  I was interested to see exactly how kid-friendly this place was for my kids.

When you walk in Which Wich you see a menu on the wall with a bunch of bags under it.  What you do is you select your type of sandwich (turkey, Italian, ham, etc.) and grab a bag labeled with that category.  Then, you fill out all of the specifics of your sandwich-type of cheese, veggies, extra meat, etc.  You go up to the register, hand them your bags, and pay.  They then make your sandwich, bag it, and call your name to pick it up.  It was a fun, novel way to order.

They had specific kids' bags, and the kids enjoyed filling out their bags with my help.  For my picky sandwich eaters they could choose from grilled cheese, PB&J, a pizza wich, or several lunch meat options.  The meal comes with chips, your choice of drinks, and a mini Rice Krispie Treat for dessert.  Oh, and they also had the option to cut the crusts off which was a really nice touch.

The food came pretty quickly, and we had the chips to snack immediately after we paid, so the kids were content.  The sandwiches were pretty good, fairly equivalent to other sandwich places in the area.  However, they had a few more creative choices that we haven't seen elsewhere.  Overall, it was a great lunch spot for our family.

What we liked: We liked the bag process, and the choices for kids were varied and fun.  Plus, the whole cutting the crusts off idea was awesome!

What we would change: We thought the prices for the adults sandwiches were a bit high for a sandwich place.  The small wasn't bad at $8 for a combo, but the large was a bit pricey at $11.  Kids meals were very reasonable though.
