pigtails and I out and about in albukkake.
It was a Sunday afternoon, I had already eaten so I just ordered some soup. My little pigtails was salivating over the menu like an overweight saint benard left outside in the mid-day Albuquerque Summer Sun.
My dainty lil' angel started with a #47 Hunters Club French Dip... Though I know pigtails_32 has an appetite, I was surprised to see how quickly my little guineabee polished off a 1/2 pound of medium rare roast beef. With the sandwich now consumed, my tails then picked up the bowl of the remaining au jus and titled it up over her open mouth and guzzled it down as if it were some delicious sweet tea.
Then my little pigtails_32 stood up and bellowed out to the staff, "FETCH ME THE CHAIRMAN OF THE BOARD AND MAKE IT SNAPPY!!!
Ten minutes later ...a lovely #51, The Frank Sinatra, was placed in front of her.
Her eyes grew wide, her broadening smile was horribly marred due to the extensive amount of beef caught up in between her hideously yellowed and sharpened baby teeth. Her chin was still glistening under the poor Jersey Jack's lighting from all the au jus, even after she made several half hearted attempts to remove it with her sleeve.
Pigtails did not miss a beat as she dove into the piles of lean corned beef, coleslaw and melted swiss cheese. Gobs of thousand island dressing dripped out of the corners of her mouth and she violently dabbed at it with the slice of the beautifully grilled rye bread that made up the top of her sandwich.
Two minutes thirty three seconds and eight bucks later...The sandwich was gone. .
At this point I had caught the attention of our waitress and was giving her "the signal" that I would like the bill, when pigtails saw what I was doing...She violently slapped at my hands with her short chubby little arms and screamed out at the top of her lungs,.... "NO! WHAT ARE YOU TRYING TO PULL HERE? I AM NOT DONE!!!"
a fork dropped and somewhere a child began to cry.
At this point, pigtails_32 leapt up out of her seat and snatched the bill right out from our waitress' hand...She jumped up on a chair and grabbed the waitress by the collar and demanded for her to retrieve two 53's immediately. One for now and one for later. She told her not to dawdle or there would be repercussions!!!
Twelve minutes later a Jersey Jack's plastic bag and a tray were set down on the floor and pushed over towards pigtails_32 with a broom...The waitress was taking no further chances with my little hungry fireball.
On the tray was one of the most delicious looking sandwiches I have ever laid eyes on..The pride and joy of Albuquerque...The magnificent #53, itself, the Monte Cristo!
Pigtails spied me ogling her sandwich, she leaned out over her sandwich, peeled back her upper lip and snarled, "YOU SAID YOU ONLY WANTED SOUP!! BACK OFF, LOSER!"
She then grabbed the pickle off of the tray and whipped it at my head.
I have never heard such hideous noises, as my beloved pigtails tore into her sandwich. the protective layer of delicious egg battered and grilled breading was no match for my little pig. Bite after endless bite the war raged on...With her greasy paws, pigtails would beckon for my beer to wash down whatever she was choking down. She would then grab a handful of potato salad and shove it into her pie hole to grease her throat for the next impending chunk of Monte Cristo.
Soon the plate and tray was spotless...Cracked, lifeless and empty like my pigtails' barren womb.
She said something about ordering something called the "Chocolate Tower" for dessert, but the staff informed us by writing on our bill that the waitress had called the authorities and intended on pressing charges against my loveliness.
I quickly paid our bill while pigtails made sure to gather up her doggy bag. As we walked out the door I am sure I heard pigtails_32 complaining about that she ordered fries and not the potato salad.
Overall, it was a splendid meal and we shall return. It was fun.
Sorry to be so harsh. This needs to be said.. The Muffaletta and other sandwich's are still good, but what the heck happened to this place. Ordered a pizza to go, it was the worst pizza I have ever had. Crust, sauce and sausage topping were all manufactured. I have had much better from the frozen aisle. The chilie unmemorable,the pickles soggy. The tables and condiments were sticky, the bathroom in need of a good cleaning. This is the second time in 3 months I have dined here, only because I had a gift cert. to burn. I used to look forward to going here and hate to say this, but if they do not get their stuff together, it's curtains. Good luck JJ.
BEST PLACE IN ALBUQUERQUE.
very very friendly people. The SERVICE was AWSOME and couldnt be any FASTER. Been there a few times and gets better evry time. CHICKEN AVACADO CLUB best sandwich ever!!
Terrible. This place was over priced with terrible food dirty bathrooms and dirty tables and to top it off slow service do not eat here
The windy city. It was such a great sandwich that I came back and treated my boss to lunch the next day. One thing I really like is that they use the boreshead meats. I will be back againd and highly recomend Jersey Jacks Eatery.
