I was told this is "THE PLACE" to get Beef on a Weck, well, the bread was soggy, perhaps frozen and microwaved to warm it up. I do not reccommend this place for "B on a W"
Ate at swistons last night on way to Riviera theatre. What an awful experience. Should have made our getaway when the server/bartender/cook said " no menus, there's two choices: chili or beef on weck." The food station was behind bar with microwave to reheat .

We were a little skeptical when we walked in and asked to see the menu and were told all they serve is chili & roast beef sandwiches. Being very hungry we decided to give a bowl of chili and roast beef on kimmelwick a try. Both were delicious! The chili was hot and spicy but not too spicey. The roast... More
