Sound Sandwiches: Rollies Tavern's Clubhouse

IT'S A SANDWICH SERIES >>>

Established in 1976, Rollies Tavern anchors the north end of McChord Field. The dive tavern is known for several things. For prowling ladies, it's a good spot to catch Air Force types all suited up and sexy. But it's even a better spot to find pizza, which is something the popular establishment has built a name on. Last, there's always that one guy in the corner, hoping to hang out with The Right Stuff crowd. Dude, you have to let go.

That said, this is a sandwich column. I don't care about dreams of being Chuck Yeager. I care bread density and mayo viscosity.

Rollies has a whoppin' two sandwiches on its menu. That's how it Rollies.

Flipping a coin, the Rollies Clubhouse procedure was set in motion.

A club is a club is a club, in most cases.  Go into any deli or tavern, and you're likely to get the same sandwich. However, Rollies Clubhouse sandwich has more of a twist to it than simply adding the word "house" to its name. You can go hot or cold with it. Your call.

Layered between three pieces of crisp toasty bread, you'll find the standard fresh tomatoes and lettuce, stacked with slices of crispy bacon. At Rollies, ham replaces the standard turkey and thick, melted Swiss cheese takes the top slot. It's tasty. it's not drive from Tumwater tasty, but still a solid lunch option.

Did I mention you can go hot or cold with the Clubhouse?

ROLLIES TAVERN, 2404 112th ST. S., LAKEWOOD, 253.582.7770
