"I was fortunate enough to have the chicken salad sandwich and the Bamh Mi sandwich at the Roctoberfest. The flavor profile on these two was incredible. Karl Pfleider is the Executive Chef, and he definitely has a flare for gourmet. There are few chefs that I recommend for their standard of excellence, and Karl is definitely one of them."
