“Everything’s better from scratch.” Scratch Sandwich Company stands out in Laredo thanks to its commitment to offering a completely “scratch” menu. So, what is scratch cooking? The chef at Scratch Sandwich Company takes raw, quality ingredients and creates a wholesome meal like the one you might get years ago at your grandmother’s kitchen table. That’s what Scratch Sandwich Company is all about—offering wholesome food in a modern environment.
Giving the concept of a local deli entirely new meaning, Scratch Sandwich Company uses high-quality ingredients to prepare its menu items in house. Scratch is known for its signature subs including scratch-made chips. There are four signature subs on the menu, all of which can be customized with bacon, avocado, marmalade, or a fried egg. The Red Eggs and Ham sub is dubbed “Dr. Seuss’ evil twin” with sriracha sauce, cilantro, and applewood bacon. The When Harry Met Sally Sub features New York imported pastrami, swiss cheese, and scratch-made sauerkraut topped with thousand island dressing. La Cosa Nostra is called “Don Corleone’s last meal” for good reason since it features fresh cut ham, salami, capicola, provolone, and the fixings with scratch-made pickles, jardinière, olive oil, and red wine vinegar. The last signature club is the biggest, The Mile High Club, with scratch-cut ham, day-after Thanksgiving turkey, applewood smoked bacon, and sharp, cheddar, and Monterrey jack cheeses.
The Scratch menu also features a variety of specialty subs like The Deadliest Catch and the Buffalo Chicken Sandwich. The Good Morning Vietnam is another favorite and features scratch-made Vietnamese sauce, grilled chicken, cucumber, carrots, jalapenos, and cilantro. When Pigs Fly is another great option and includes scratch-made bacon marmalade and grilled chicken. Of course, there’s also the Adult Grilled Cheese that takes the grilled cheese sandwich to an entirely new level with provolone, cheddar, and Monterey jack cheese with the option to add ham, chicken, or bacon.
If you’re feeling brave, dare to create your own sandwich by choosing your bread, proteins, vegetables, cheese, and sauces. You can also enjoy one of the restaurant’s scratch-made soups or salads.
Scratch Sandwich Company certainly has something for everyone thanks to its full menu, bar menu, and brunch menu.
