Fat Cat: can i haz chezburga...sub sandwich?

When you order a cheeseburger and side of fries, you expect to get...well, a cheeseburger and a side of french fries, right?

A friend ordered this all-American well-known meal at a local pizza place in New Jersey, and what he got instead, was what we call a submarine sandwich here in NJ, with the fries INSIDE the sandwich, plus all the trimmings.

Not what he expected.

This a photo of the sandwich after he decided to taste it since he couldn't return it:

What's the story behind the sandwich? Seems like this pizza place just introduced a new line of Fat Subs. This one is called the Fat Cat, with 2 cheeseburgers, French Fries, Lettuce, Tomatoes, Onions, Ketchup and Mayo on a submarine roll. They also have on the menu a Fat Sam, Fat Darryl, Fat B****ard, and Fat B**ch which is made with Cheese Steaks, Chicken Fingers, Mozzarella Sticks, French Fries, Lettuce, Tomatoes, Onions, Mayo and Ketchup all crammed on a submarine roll (can you tell this place is near Rutgers University?)

I asked the owner if he came up with the ideas for these sub sandwiches and he said he saw it at another restaurant. Gotta give him credit for trying to come up with something new and different, rather than just plain ol' pizza.

Do you have a story to add about something new and different in your life?
...or, something old and sentimental that you've kept forever? Send in your stories to

Thanks for sharing!

P.S. If you've read this far, and can identify the name and town of this pizza place, the first person to email me with the correct information will receive $5 (almost enough to pay for one Fat Cat sub).
