Tri Tip Grill’s Bacon Cheddar Buck is a Winner
Ever since I started writing here on Midtown Lunch, I have heard of Tri Tip Grill (loved by many Midtown Lunch’ers). I wanted to try them and I knew I should try them. But things kept coming up and I just never had the time to trek up to the Rockefeller Center. Then finally at the Midtown Lunch 5th Year Anniversary I was able to try their roast beef. After eating 1 (followed by 3 more), I knew what all the craze was about.
Now with their Grand Central location opened for business, I can enjoy as many roast beef sandwiches as I want. And for my 1st one I decided to try something special.
What’s more special than cheese on pork on beef?! For $8.49 I got the 4oz Bacon Cheddar Buck. Since I had never been to Tri Tip Grill, I wasn’t sure how big their sandwiches were. So I was pleasantly surprised by how big my sandwich was, and was particularly happy to see that they really pack those slices of roast beef in. If this was 4oz, I can’t imagine how much roast beef 6oz is.
The sandwich was a little messy to eat but overall the bun held everything nicely. The bacon, a little smokey and slightly crispy, was perfectly salty and added that extra salty flavor to the sandwich. The thinly sliced roast beef was tender and just fantastic.
I loved my sandwich so much that after I ate it, I made sure I told everyone in the office to get a sandwich there ASAP. Though there is one tiny thing I wasn’t too thrilled about and that was the price. Everything on the Grand Central menu is 50cents more than the Rockefeller Center menu. What the heck?!
