Any restaurant that can stay in business with the same menu and location for 33 years is doing something right, and Sensuous Sandwich is doing a whole lot of things right. The only thing more welcoming than the shop’s friendly and quirky atmosphere is the delicious aroma that greets costumers.
Location and hours:
Sensuous Sandwich is located in a quaint wood-covered store at 163 W. Center Street, Provo, and is open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday–Friday, 10:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday and is closed on Sunday.
Sensuous Sandwich starts with a four-inch sandwich at just $2.99 and goes up to a 24-inch sandwich for $14.09.
The Sensuous Sandwich is the most popular item, with ham, turkey, roast beef and Monterey Jack cheese, but The Tantalizer, which has pastrami, roast beef, turkey and Monterey Jack cheese, is also highly recommended.
Sensuous Sandwich has a 24-inch challenge. If a customer can eat a 24-inch sandwich in 30 minutes or less they will have their photo put on the wall and will be awarded a t-shirt. Any time a customer who has completed the challenge brings in a shirt they are given a free medium drink.
Sensuous Sandwich’s wacky and endearing decor sets it apart from other sandwich shops. Tables tops are covered in various comics for customers to read while eating, and walls are plastered with wacky posters from various eras, contributing to the shop’s inviting atmosphere.
What the employees say:
“Atmosphere is what makes this place,” said Brittnie Leroy, long-time employee of the shop.
