Chances are when you think about what to do for lunch, you think about Sack’s. At one time or another, with or without clients in tow, lunch-goers stop in to have one of the best sandwiches money can buy.
WM Sacks Art of Sandwicherie is just that — a virtual sandwich factory that is all about making the best combinations of breads, meats, vegetables and condiments. Original recipe soups and salads that are inventive and incredibly tasty make up this menu. Open from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., Sacks is really only about noontime fare. Wanda Morrow, the founder, believes in good, healthy food made with quality ingredients that are affordable. Since she opened her first location in 1985, this has caught on as she now has four locations in Tempe and Phoenix.
Art and artists are the inspiration of the signature sandwiches aptly named, from the Sacks Symphony (a sandwich of turkey breast, bacon, avocado, tomato, alfalfa sprouts, cream cheese and mayo on 12-grain bread) to the Sacks Van Gogh (a concoction of rare roast beef, fresh dill, Havarti cheese, alfalfa sprouts and Sacks special deli mustard on pumpernickel bread). The Picasso is a hot sandwich made with four meatballs, provolone cheese and Mama Cosenza’s Original Italian Sauce, all on an 8-inch baguette. The Tuna and Chicken Salads are made fresh and are recipes that will not be forgotten, and can be ordered as a sandwich or as a “salad” by themselves. Each order comes with one of Morrow’s famous cookies.
Not a place for that important client meeting, Sacks is all about getting in and out with a great meal. Eat-in or take-out and delivery are the options. Catering for that corporate meeting or working lunch is available, but get orders in early as each of the four locations is packed with hungry customers (all of whom are likely back for more). Crowded but well organized, this Sandwicherie is a Valley staple that is also a business success story.
