Out and About: #SandwichEatUp at Hot Krust in Dr. Phillips

#SandwichEatUp, Hot Krust

One of my favorite monthly meet-ups is the #SandwichEatUp, where people get together to enjoy a sandwich at an area restaurant, and make new friends. Last week, the meet-up returned to Hot Krust in Dr. Phillips, and it was a fun time for all.

Hot Krust is located in Phillips Crossing, where Sand Lake Rd and Turkey Lake Rd meet. It’ll be celebrating its second anniversary in business this month, and it’s a popular place because its ingredients are fresh and the meat is nitrate-free, roasted in house.

I chose the side special of the day, spicy mac & cheese, which was like mac & cheese with pico de gallo in it.
