Earl of Sandwich is a very popular quick service restaurant located in Downtown Disney. There is almost always a long line for this restaurant; however, don’t let it intimate you. The line actually moves very quickly.
Despite being crowded, the front of house was very organized. After ordering, our food was up within five minutes. Surprisingly we were able to find a table right away. It always baffles me when you wait in line for 15 minutes just to order and then can find a table immediately.
The menu at Earl of Sandwich consists of what you would expect from a sandwich shop: soups, salads, and sandwiches. Earl of Sandwich is different from other sandwich shops however in the fact that they offer sandwich combinations that you will not find anywhere else. All the food at Earl of Sandwich is also made with fresh high quality ingredients.
Food and Drink
If you think this restaurant is going to be like Subway (like I did) you are wrong. It is so much better. I had The Original 1762, my husband had The Full Montagu, my dad had the Caribbean Jerk Chicken, and my girls shared the Hawaiian BBQ. The bread is fresh and toasted just right. All the ingredients are fresh, and they have figured out how to balance all the ingredients perfectly. Even my picky eater, who asked me six times to make sure that they would not put the yucky cheese (what she calls American cheese) on her sandwich, loved hers.
Since this is a quick service restaurant, there isn’t much service here. You order your food from a cast member at a podium, then you pick up your order from a window. Seating is first come first serve. If it’s crowded, it’s a good idea to have one person find a table while another gets the food.
Now I know why everyone loves Earl of Sandwich so much. I have heard that there is also a Thanksgiving sandwich on the menu that is also amazing. I think I know what I will be trying on our next visit.
