For anyone who craves a great Taylor Ham Egg and Cheese on a roll, there's a little breakfast/lunch place in downtown Waxhaw!!!

I was so happy to have found this place. It reminds me of all those tiny little sandwich shops that you can find in most towns in NJ.
It's called "Main Street Grill" and it's right on West South Main street, parallel to the train tracks in Waxhaw. The owner tells me that they've only been open for four months. I wanted to jump over the counter and give her a big hug, but that would have been inappropriate.

It's really not a fancy place, Ani, but the food, at least the roll I had, was delicious.

stmaarten - I may give that place a try real soon. I used the last of my carefully hoarded supply of the Shop-Rite version of Taylor Ham that my sister and BIL brought down. The bad part was it was the "mild" and not the "tangy" variety which tastes closer to the "real thing". BTW, I've got a complaint about rolls in general which may apply to both North and South. Whatever happened to real "hard rolls" like the kind you could get from any delicatessen in years past? Ever since most stores and supermarkets have on-site bakeries, the quality of rolls has gone down the tubes. This happened about 15 or 20 years ago in NJ. I suspect that there are baked goods here that have experienced a similar decline in quality compared to years past. What I wouldn't do for some good hard rolls with poppy seeds on them that actually had some "body" to them, instead of their mushy counterparts that seem to be ubiquitous.

There are some web sites that sell the six pound rolls of Taylor Ham and since I may go back to my Atkins Diet again, I may spring for one.

You may want to try Lowe's Food Stores (Ballantyne - Promenade) they sell the Talor Ham (Pork Roll) in the 2 lb casing, check near the deli section with the Boars Head provisions, I picked one up the other day.....

Thanks uncgdad! - stmaarten clued me last year, about Lowe's having Taylor Ham. I just like having the large size roll that is the diameter of a slice of bread, although if I do Atkins, bread may become a distant memory for a long time!

Sadly, Emissary, the Taylor Ham sandwiches I found are NOT made with those wonderful, crunchy rolls that you (and I) crave, but I don't know if they even have access to them.
I saw some rolls labeled "Chicago rolls" in HT the other day. I gave them a squeeze and they were, in fact, crunchy. I brought them home and was pleasantly surprised at how delicious (and crunchy!) they were.

That'll be a very expensive THEC on a roll, with the high gas prices we're dealing with.
