Sandwich King

Turkey and roast beef like you've never tasted

ith apologies to Dr. Seuss, Roast Beast is the little-known home to some of the city’s best roast-beef and turkey sandwiches, thanks to topnotch ingredients and homemade condiments in Seussical combinations on warm rolls—and also because that’s all they make in this tiny, out-of-the-way find. Create your own and pick a size (these sandwiches are huge). Or take the Thermonuclear Challenge by trying to finish a sandwich with the deadly Thermonuclear Sauce, with ghost chili peppers—some of the hottest in the world. Winners get a T-shirt and their photo on the wall, and the satisfaction of a completely pointless job well done. Warne



Dr. Seuss, whose real name was Theodor Geisel, was born in Springfield, and based some of his stories and characters on people and places there.
