pimento no-mo


got a tip from dave over at extraface via suggest-a-story that the vortex has stopped selling the southern favorite pimento cheese sandwich.

could it be true i wondered?

an email to vortex owner michael benoit confirmed that indeed the pimento cheese sandwich was dropped from the menu in november. according to benoit the pimento cheese was only being ordered by a few diehards and was the only item the vortex had to throw away.

No one was more distraught than local celebrity, and man-about-town,
Lucky Yates (Dad’s Garage Theater, Good Eats, The Lucky Yates Show,
former Dames Aflame MC). He was definitely one of the diehards. But
even he has come to love some of the new additions to the menu,
including the Elvis Burger, the Double Bypass, the Fiery Italian Sub,
and the Quesadilla with chorizo added (that one’s a secret).

so there you have it. no more pimento cheese, but if you think the elvis burger might be to your taste you can check out the new menu at www.thevortexbarandgrill.com.

    For the pimento cheese diehards out there, all is not lost. I can point you in the direction of a sandwich vending machine at the airport which serves up some of the “freshest” pimento sandwiches east of the Mississippi River.

    Yeah, I was bummed about their general menu change. They used to have this awesome breakfast burrito, and the new one I don’t find tasty at all.
