Local Huntsville sandwich shop will make you fall in 'Love at First Bite'

Dipwich is serving up a signature sandwich for Huntsville Restaurant Week; a sandwich that has actually been around since the 1970s!

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — I think we can all agree that everyone loves a good sandwich.

Well, look no further for the place to grab one because today, in honor of Huntsville Restaurant Week, WZDX takes you to a local sandwich shop: Dipwich!

For restaurant week, Dipwich is serving up a special sandwich called 'Love at First Bite'.

This special 'Love at First Bite' sandwich consists of rye bread, roast beef, bacon, lettuce, tomato, Louie dressing and muenster cheese all for $6.95! (Yes... including fries!)

The executive chef at the sandwich shop says this particular sandwich has been around for as long as he has been in the business... since 1976!

He tells us why he thinks the shop is serving up something special.

"I think that the quality is clearly the difference. We do all of our work from scratch, nothing comes in already cooked, we cook everything from scratch. And that makes a difference if we take the time to train the team and manage and supervise the process all the time. It's easy to come up with superior results," said Dipwich Vice President, Partner and Executive Chef Michael Northern.

From the Huntsville Restaurant Week Press Release: 

As part of the precautions for COVID-19, the CVB is encouraging alternative ways for both residents and visitors alike to support Huntsville Restaurant Week, primarily by partnering with local delivery services Rocket City Delivered and GrubSouth, which are both waiving the standard delivery fee for participating restaurants using the code HRW2021. Patrons will be able to choose from the variety of participating Restaurant Week establishments that currently offer delivery through either or both of the two services.

Despite the pandemic, diners can expect to see several first-time participants on the list for 2021. BeeZr Gastropub, Bubby’s Diner, Oscar Moon’s, Grille on Main, and Frankie’s Crab Shack are just a few of the newcomers to Restaurant Week.

As a bonus feature of Restaurant Week, the Huntsville/Madison County CVB will be hosting ten days of giveaways through social media. Simply tweet or post to Facebook or Instagram using the official Restaurant Week hashtag #DineHsv with your best “foodie” photos, what dish you most want to try, etc. A winner will be chosen each day throughout the ten days of Restaurant Week to win restaurant gift cards and CVB prizes.

The CVB’s own #iHeartHsv blog will be featuring dedicated food and beverage content throughout the month of August.
