Voget Meats serving up sandwiches
I stopped in at Voget Meats in Hubbard recently to try the new lunchtime sandwich menu.
It was my first visit to the venerable market, an award-winning fixture of Hubbard that has been family-owned and operated for more than 60 years.
Voget started serving takeout just before Easter this year, offering a small selection of hot sandwiches for the lunchtime crowd. The menu is available from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
It's been busy behind the deli counter since the sandwich service started, said Voget employee Natalie Stutzman-Henderson.
The crowd favorites so far are the smoked turkey and bacon panini, and the smoked turkey and bacon wrap, Stutzman-Henderson said.
The Oktoberfest sausage has its fans too, but the sandwiches draw the most attention.
"The panini," Stutzman-Henderson said.
I'm more of Reuben fan, so when I went by Wednesday I was set on getting my sauerkraut fix. I was not disappointed.
The rye bread was warm, crunchy and a little chewy, having been pressed on a grill. The sauerkraut was crisp, sour and not too watery. Voget's signature Summer Sausage was layered on thick and the provolone cheese and sauce combination was rich and savory.
It hit the spot.
