Stachowski’s is your best bet for a meal on the go in Georgetown. The corner market/butcher shop serves huge, meat-heavy sandwiches, as well as dinner specials like roast chicken and pork schnitzel. We prefer it earlier in the day, and our go-to order is the 4 Meat Grinder - essentially the stretch Hummer limo of Italian subs (obnoxiously huge, but when you want it, there’s no substitute).
