Ends Meat makes some seriously good sandwiches. Sure, Hometown does too - but sometimes you don’t feel like eating a huge mound of brisket or pastrami. And that’s when you should go to Ends Meat. Their beef neck sandwich has caramelized onions, thin slices of beef layered on top of one another, and just enough Thousand Island dressing to make its presence known. The first time we ate it, we immediately walked back over and asked where they get their (charred, crispy, fluffy) bread. “We make it,” they said. And that’s another reason why you should eat here.
