The Very Best Sloppy Joe You'll Ever Have

I just can't understand why most people spoon some sloppy joe meat onto a bun and call it a day... what the heck?? Around here, our locally-owned shops make them just like you would a sub... lots and lots of fresh veggies and melty provolone cheese all on a fresh, home-style, Italian loaf of bread.

So, don't settle for Manwich on a soggy hamburger bun... you deserve better! Give these a try and I bet you'll never buy a can of Manwich again... I promise!
