Eating Around Georgia Tech: Crazy Cuban
Crazy Cuban opened a few weeks ago on 14th Street, just a block or so from the Silver Skillet. It's a very dedicated shop: all sandwiches and for the moment only lunch. The owner did tell me that they plan to expand hours as the students start to flow in.
A cuban sandwich, in case you haven't had the pleasure of a formal introduction, is a sandwich with ham, pork, and cheese as the main attractions, along with a special type of sandwich roll. The Crazy Cuban's version is pretty good---warm and succulent. As an accompaniment, they serve Zapp's potato chips, which I really like because they actually taste like potatoes, unlike too many of today's extruded chips. This neighborhood has needed more straightforward lunch places and Crazy Cuban fits the bill.
