I can't speak to the other reviews of breakfast or a beef sandwich, but the turkey, lettuce and tomato I had was pretty good. It's not a huge sandwich, so it won't stuff you, but it satisfies.

It the Original 1762 roast beef sandwich was actually what it claims to be, I would understand why they are still around today. Instead my sandwich had tough, unchewable meat in it. Not all what I would call roast beef. Dog chew would be more...More

The quality of the roast beef was awful. I could not chew through it. I could not tear it. The entire one and only piece in the sandwich was held together by grizzle! $10 for a sandwich I could not eat. This sandwich was recommended...More

I always arrive a few minutes early so I can get one of my Earls favorites, Hot Ham and Swiss. Always hot, fresh and fast. The honey mustard sauce is awesome. If in the north terminal you will find Earls just past gate D25.

Defiantly in need of a management change. Really bad service from employees who could care less to give you the time of day.

Earl has good hot sandwiches. It would be a nice thing to have at least two different kinds of bread choices. I would prefer a healthy variety such as wheat. But overall good quality sandwich.

We invented the Sandwich® in 1762. Our secret is our famous artisan bread, baked when you order, and traditional family recipes prepared with fresh ingredients. In 1762, John Montagu, the 4th Earl of Sandwich®, invented the meal that changed dining forever. As the story goes, he was playing cards and did not want to leave the gaming table to eat. He asked for a serving of roast beef to be placed between two slices of bread so he could eat with his hands. Thus, the Sandwich was born.
