Before we went home, we went to one last destination: Chaps Pit Beef. I am always in the mood for roast beef. It's my favorite sandwich meat. So when I read that Chaps is a must stop destination, we found the stomach room immediately.
Chaps sits as a stand along establishment off a busy road. Driving by, you could easily miss it but the smell is unmistakable. You know that delicious meat was being grilled in there. In fact, that have a charcoal grill inside the restaurant that's constantly cooking meat of all kinds including turkey, chicken, pork, and beef. They cook these large cuts of meat so that the outside is well done while the inside is rare. Perfect for anyone ordering their desired doneness.
The menu is really extensive and you could get any combination of meats and toppings that you please. However, I was there for the staple sandwich: roast beef cooked medium rare with cheese sauce. The raw vegetable sandwich toppings like pickles, onions, tomatoes, etc could be found on the side bar.
Before I dove in or added anything, I wanted to take a look at it. Look at that tender, juicy beef. It's calling for me. I took one bite and it was just as it looked: delicious. However, I did think it needed the onions which gave it a nice kick. The meat was thinly sliced and stacked in beautiful mountain of awesomeness. The cheese which was actually liquid cheese was enough to make it creamy and rich. The bread is the only thing I disliked. It fell apart as I ate my way through it. I guess the roast beef was just too juicy for it.
