DonRocks Posted June 3, 2013 Share Posted June 3, 2013 I wouldn't bother writing this, but the Harrison Street (Arlington) Chesapeake Bagel Bakery has signs up saying that they're the "only deli in Arlington that roasts their own roast beef and turkey." (Earl's, you might want to take note of this.) I was going to order something very plain, but ended up dropping $7.80 on a roast beef and cheddar sandwich, on a plain bagel, with lettuce, tomato and light mayo. Aside from the fact that they forgot the cheddar, if this roast beef was roasted in-house, I'm the King of Siam. It was *disgusting* - that same grayish-brown, fat-streaked, garbage that you get on any cheap party platter. I haven't had Subway's roast beef, but I suspect it's precisely at this level of quality. We've all seen it, and it's nothing like freshly roasted beef. I'm not saying they *didn't* roast it because I can't prove it, but if they did ... why bother? Horrible. This is false advertising unless my palate has betrayed me ("Have you ever mistaken a Rhone for a Burgundy?" "Not since lunch.") In case anyone didn't know, Chesapeake Bagel Bakery was purchased by the same company that owns Einstein Bagels and Manhattan Bagels in 1999. However, when you go to the Einstein Noah Restaurant Group website, and click on "Our Brands," there's no mention of them. That either means they divested, or they're just too ashamed to admit they still own the brand. Either way, a smart move. There is no separate website for Chesapeake Bagel Bakery that I could find; only this. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
