I missed out on 50% off on line coupon for Wrights that was being offered at Scoutmob but I figured I would share the description of the establishment since it is a Dunwoody icon worth trying if you have never been.Known for gourmet sandwiches, soups, salads and baked goods, the Wright Gourmet Sandwich Shoppe located in Dunwoody has been family-owned and operated since 1984. Using the best of Boars Head products, many of their signature sammies won’t be found on any other menu out there. Their in-house bakery whips up an assortment of yummies every day. And if Funwoody ain’t your neck of the woods? They also deliver to a major portion of the metro area - and do a good business in catering.
The Full Story: 25 years ago, the Wright family brought their grandparents’ restaurant idea from Tampa to a new spot in Dunwoody. Since then, it's been a staple in this Atlanta ‘burb. If the first sandwich-loving generation opened their shop in 1964, that means the Wright family has been holding onto a tradition of amazing sandwiches, salads, and baked goods for roughly 46 years. That's a whole lot of cold cuts and counting.
So what’s the house favorite on the sandwich front? That would be their Classic (a turkey salad-avocado-bacon-mayo-custom mustard sauce creation), the Bleu Max (made with roast beef or turkey, bleu cheese dressing, cucumber, onion and tomato on a homemade onion roll) as well as the Golden Gate (fresh-roast pork, bacon, cheese topped with a peach chutney and mustard sauce). If you’re a sucker for a solid Cuban or Muffuletta, the ones on this menu are solid choices as well. And for you dessert-lovers out there, Wright’iced Coconut Cake is pretty deadly (I sampled it in giant cupcake form and ended up licking the flecks of cakey-coconut off the empty wrapper until my dignity made me stop); their Lemonade Cake has been a number one seller since they opened. They've also got four brand new signature sandwiches they added to the menu.
There’s no shortage of lunch goodies on this menu . And with such a tradition in stellar sandwiches, it doesn’t seem like the Wrights will need to find a family business alternative for at least another century or so.
