[7 Club Sandwiches in 7 Weeks] Week 3: Shirley’s

(Someone very gently reminded me that I’ve been slacking on this. Hey, screw you, M! j/k)
For several weeks now, I’ve been on a club sandwich kick. I asked myself, who has the best club sandwich on island? I decided to find out. For the next few weeks, I’ll be reviewing club sandwiches served at various local joints. My scoring system will be based on the quality of the key ingredients & overall taste as well as presentation of the sandwich and quality of service. Now I’m no Food Guy, so take my reviews with a grain of salt. 🙂
Week 3: Shirley’s
What it says on the menu:
The Chicken Club
Grilled breast of chicken, cheese, bacon strips, sliced tomato and lettuce on toast. $7.25 with fries

The Breakdown:
Bread – nicely toasted white bread
Cheese – american cheese
Meat -crispy bacon and thin slices of chicken breast
Vegetables – crisp green romaine lettuce, green tomato
Sauce – the mayo tasted kinda sweet
Presentation:

Taste: Below Average.
The Verdict: I’d rather go without tomato instead of chowing down on a straight up green one. I mean, look at it!

Honestly, why bother at all? Green tomatoes belong at the Whistle Stop Cafe.
Also, the sweet tasting mayo annoyed me after a few bites. Fries were good, though.
Service: Prompt seating. 17 minutes between placing order & first bite.
Score: 5/10
Next time: Horse and Cow

    i can believe that shirley’s is pretty awful all around. what i can’t believe that you get green tomatoes in guam?! they’re hard to find here unless you can make the farmer’s market on sunday. (fried green tomatoes are so tasty in a salad with fresh grilled salmon/shrimp!)

    Yikes! That is one unappetizing sandwich. I think you were generous to give it a 5/10. I’m betting Horse & Cow will be better; if it isn’t you can always get one of their monster burgers!
