Heather: The Goal Post Sandwich Shop has been on my list of places to eat at since we moved to the Avondale area. In an unassuming small shopping strip right as St Johns Ave and Herschel St splits, I’d heard it was a delicious spot for a rider. Sarah and I met for lunch, and moved to the back of the ordering line.
After scanning the menu, the vegetarian rider stood out for me and the cheese burger caught Sarah’s eye. Ordering was quick and easy (and as you can see, the prices are very reasonable), and we grabbed a booth at the back of the room to wait for our food.
We didn’t have to wait long before our two baskets of goodies were brought to the table. It only took one bite of the double cheese and tabouli (with some mayo that I didn’t really taste) to turn me into a fan. The pita was warm and not to over use the term here, but it really melted in my mouth. I think Sarah had to tell me a few times that I had sandwich on my face because I was definitely more focused on food than eating like a lady. Although I want to try other things here, this rider is undoubtedly one to come back to.
Burgers aren’t something I eat a lot of, probably due to eating too many growing up. But as soon as I saw Sarah’s, I had a craving for one. By no means was it anything fancy, but Sarah said she really enjoyed it and it would definitely be something she would order again. I think both of our empty baskets by the end of the meal are the tell all for the tastiness of the place.
At one point shop cleared out, but only for about 15 minutes before the next wave of people came in. I love the tucked away feeling of this place, and being able to support something local that has been around for a long time.
