A descendant of the sandwich's supposed inventor is behind this takeout chain. According to the legend, John Montagu, the fourth Earl of Sandwich, put salt beef between two pieces of bread so he didn't have to take a meal break during a 24-hour gambling stretch in 1762. At this outpost, find the chain's signature combinations, like the Original 1762 (roast beef, cheddar, horseradish sauce) and the Earl’s Club (turkey, smoked bacon, Swiss).
