I got together with Leslie, Marie, and Grant for a good dinner at Mad Italian. It's right off 285 and I have long been curious about it but never quite made it there. I should have stopped by earlier. This is one of those relatively few places in Atlanta that can satisfy my need for a good Italian sandwich.
This is my sausage, pepper, and onion sandwich. Everything about it was great: the sausage was juicy and flavorful, the peppers and onions were done but not overcooked, the sauce was the right balance between sweet and acidic, and the roll was crusty on the outside and soft on the inside. This baby didn't last very long. Everyone else enjoyed their food, too.
