Thanksgiving or even Christmas is coming early for devoted fans of Capriotti's. The sandwich shop chain with multiple Vegas area branches has gone all-out at their Paradise Road location and is now offering 24-hour-a-day, seven-days-a-week service.

Long hailed as a superior fast food choice for this writer and many others, it's the Thanksgiving sandwich, or the 'Bobbie,' that's the star of the show. Turkey, cranberry sauce, stuffing and a bit of mayo. It's clearly not rocket science, but that combo is easy to turn-out dry and could go tragically wrong. These guys don't have that problem, though, and the Bobbie has even been voted "America's Greatest Sandwich." That's across the whole country, people. And, from a restaurant chain.

This writer will always gravitate towards a Thanksgiving-style sandwich even if a great burger is on the menu. An open-faced turkey sandwich works for us, too. We heartily recommend KGB (Kerry’s Gourmet Burgers) and I Love Burgers who both do excellent work in this particular field of sandwich artistry. We've yet to try the Earl of Sandwich entry, but it's on our list. (Yeah, we're making a list. We like to hear recommendations, too. Please add them below.)

Located at 4480 Paradise Road (near Harmon and across from the Hard Rock, this never closing emporium will also, sensibly, introduce a breakfast menu. Do let us know if you try those new additions to their roster. And, for those wishing for a prosaic solution to the history of the name Bobbie, well the sandwich is named after a founder's aunt. The company is named after a grandfather. Capriotti's: boring origin, great stuffing and cranberries.

Earl of Sandwich

I see you've yet to try the earl of sandwich version.....this coming from the BIGGEST advocate for earl of sandwich you will ever meet...its really disappointing! At least it was for me...if you ever try it let me know if it was just someone's bad day, or if it really didn't stack up

Too much bread

Their sandwiches are mostly bread. The amount of quality meat has gone down a lot in the last few years. It is starting to approach Subway (ugh) in quality. If you like a lot of cheap lettuce and tomato and not much meat then go there.
