Delicious Sandwiches at Upper Crust

If you get tired of all the festive food at home, be sure to visit Upper Crust for something a bit different. We love their pizza but sometimes their delicious sandwiches just speak to our soul. Try the Smoked Pastrami Sandwich with pickled red onion, coleslaw, pepper jack cheese and spicy mustard on marble rye, or for something especially decadent, go for their Parmesan Chicken Sandwich with fried eggplant, cheese blend, pie sauce and basil on sourdough. They even offer Grilled Cheese with House-Made Tomato Soup! Follow @uppercrust_pizza on Instagram.
