Earl of Sandwich’s The Earl’s Club

We’re continuing our 2013 Eat Each Sandwich Challenge that Nora & Nick of Extra WDW Magic thought up (#2013eateachsandwich)! Today, we’re having The Earl’s Club.


The Earl’s Club is classic club sandwich: turkey, bacon, lettuce and tomato, with the addition of Swiss cheese and Earl’s sandwich sauce in place of mayonnaise. It doesn’t sound like anything spectacular, but Earl’s execution really makes this sandwich.


On top of their delicious bread  you will find turkey layered on both the top and bottom of the slices, which have been given a light layer of sandwich sauce, creating a much meatier feel to the sandwich. In between those two sandwich layers are their addictive bacon, lettuce, tomato (which was a bit on the green side this visit), and perfectly melted Swiss.


I will say the sandwich was a tad on the salty side, possibly from the sandwich sauce; more so than the other sandwiches I’ve had, but it was far from being unpleasant. Otherwise the filling-to-bread ratio on this sandwich was perfect. Each bite was balanced with some of each ingredient.


It’s no surprise that a classic sandwich is done so well here. Typically every club sandwich I’ve had in the past isn’t too far off from, for example, the one I had at The Plaza Restaurant. Nothing wrong with it, and a perfectly good sandwich. At Earl of Sandwich, however, it’s one I look forward to ordering again.

  1. I’m glad you had a better experience with the Earl’s club than I did! (My was overdressed – soggy). Alas, I have moved offices so I am no longer near the NYC Earl. I miss their sandwiches greatly!

  2. Overdressed sandwiches are no fun. 😦

  3. As I’ve said before, this is Nick’s favorite (especially with scrambled egg in the morning)…

  4. Aside from the Holiday Turkey sandwich, almost every sandwich I have gotten from Earl of Sandwich has been super salty :/ And I am the type of person to put salt on everything!

  5. Oh no! Were they all from the WDW location?
