The 'wich is back at Schlotzsky's Austin Eatery

Schlotzsky's is keeping sandwiches weird by transforming every one of their locations into Schlotzsky's Austin Eatery.

The transition marks an exciting evolution of the brand and will feature handcrafted food and beverage offerings, an eclectic design, and an inviting atmosphere perfect for a unique dining experience. Select Schlotzsky’s Austin Eatery locations will also carry local craft beer and wine and feature happy hours throughout the week.

The rebrand includes a new look and feel in the stores as well as a more robust menu, featuring items like flatbreads, pizzas, gourmet mac and cheese, and sliders in addition to the sandwich staples.

At the official grand re-opening, we enjoyed a variety of new and classic menu items. The Beef Bacon Smokecheesy was everything the name promised and more—shaved Angus roast beef with smoked cheddar cheese, bacon and chipotle mayonnaise, all served on a toasted house-made jalapeno sourdough bun. The Tuscan was light and delicious, with hand-carved roasted turkey breast and bacon strips, provolone & Swiss cheeses, roasted red peppers, tomato, field greens, cilantro, chipotle pesto and avocado on Italian ciabatta roll (Schlotzsky's know how to make some bad-ass bread). Of course you can't forget the sandwich that started it all, the OG if you will (literally), the Original.

From the new menu, the oven-baked artisan flat bread was a treat, with hand-carved chicken breast with chopped bacon, mozzarella & cheddar cheeses, cream sauce, avocado, roasted red pepper, cilantro and chipotle mayonnaise. You can never go wrong with mac and cheese, and Schlotzsky's makes a great one called the smokey brisketeer full of hickory-smoked brisket, chipotle pesto, cheddar cheese, fresh jalapeños, roasted red peppers, BBQ sauce and cilantro. PLUS you get garlic breadsticks. What could be better?
