Snarf’s. That a funny word, isn’t it? That’s the nickname of the creator of Snarf’s Sandwiches who opened the first one in 1996 in Boulder, Colorado. Now, the family-owned business has grown to nearly 20 restaurants in Colorado, Chicago, St. Louis, and Austin, Texas. There are currently three here in St. Louis with another one opening soon. I had an awesome opportunity to check our Snarf’s a couple of weeks ago prior to hosting a playoff football game party.
I had never been to Snarf’s before, so I told Louie, the manager at the MX location, how many people would be in attendance and he put together an AMAZING spread! Snarf’s makes catering crazy easy. Not only is all their food delicious, but it appeals to everybody, the portions are humongous, and they provide all the serving supplies you need. Here was our spread from the playoffs:
We got two HUGE cases of an assortment of sandwiches, sauces, salad, cole slaw, potato salad, macaroni salad, pickle spears, and hot peppers and onions. Literally, everything was awesome. You know a place is good when people are talking about the pickles; yes, the pickles were even talked about! The sandwiches are cut in half which is perfect because you don’t have to totally commit to just one kind.
I was glad I left the ordering up to Louie because after looking at the menu, I knew I couldn’t decide what to get with all the options Snarf’s has. Louie gave us something of everything, and from the moment I opened the box, everyone’s eyes were wide and mouths were drooling! I mean you gotta get a close up:
Of the sandwiches I tasted that night, I think the Prime Rib & Provolone was my favorite, but it was not an easy decision. I tasted at least six different sandwiches. There were even a couple left over, and they were great toasted the next day. (No, they did not get soggy!)
Another HUGE reason why I love love love Snarf’s is that the produce is sourced locally from Long Acres Farms and the bread is baked fresh daily from Fazio’s Bakery. Local, fresh ingredients always taste better!
They even have dessert. Brownies and chocolate chip cookies were eaten during half time by all, but the little ones were the only ones we made pose with their treats before we allowed them to eat it!
So through my partnership, I got to create a “Super Bowl Special” sandwich for the big game on Sunday! Last weekend, I went back to Snarf’s to meet with Louie and discuss and try out my creation. It was a fun challenge as I literally put all my favorite ingredients on one sandwich and Louie made suggestions based on his expertise. We came up with….
Snarf’s Touchdown Turkey – Smoked turkey breast, low fat herb cream cheese, sautéed hot peppers and onions, mushrooms, topped with tomatoes, baby spinach, and fresh sliced avocado. THIS IS MY NEW FAVORITE!!! GO GET IT WHILE THEY HAVE IT!!!
Other mouth-watering, ridiculously delicious specials that Snarf’s will be running through the weekend include:
Snarf’s Half Time Buffalo Chicken – Rotisserie chicken smothered in red hot ranch, aged swiss cheese, smoked bacon, and caramelized onions served on Snarf’s signature baguette.
Snarf’s Super Bowl NY Deli – Hot pastrami and corned beef, aged swiss cheese, onions, and mushrooms, then finished with a creamy garlic aioli on Snarf’s signature baguette; served with a side of au jus.
I think I’ve officially tried everything on and off their menu. I got to try each of these three Super Bowl special sandwiches (I may or may not have shared), and literally they’re all winners. I know “classic” Super Bowl food includes pizza and wings; I have nothing against that, but something a bit different (and dare I say maybe a tad healthier?) would be Snarf’s sandwiches. Go check out their menu, place your order, and impress your guests. I’m going back for my Super Bowl order on Sunday which will be the third weekend in a row that I’ve been at Snarf’s. I like this pattern, and I must say, it’ll probably continue…
What are you doing for the Super Bowl?
