A bologna sandwich has no earthly reason to be this good. But at Shoals, thoughtful execution of simple things is kinda the M.O. And that's why, even if it doesn't sound enticing at first, this bologna sandwich is a must-order.
Forget the sandwiches of your youth: sad slices of cheap bologna slathered with ketchup and sandwiched between flimsy white bread. This sandwich, which comes with either a half-pound or a pound of bologna (trust me, even if you're splitting it, you only need the half-pound), is piled high with thin-sliced mortadella, peppers, mustard, mayo and several glorious cheeses between a fresh bolillo bun.
It's messy, it's juicy, it's creamy and salty — all the things a bar snack should be. If you've had one too many bloody marys at Shoals, this is the best way to soak up all that vodka.
