Bill’s Special -Main Street Eatery – Brooksville, Florida

Jul 13



This delectable sandwich came to my mouth by way of the Main Street Eatery in Brooksville, Florida. We decided to “staycation” in Central Florida this year. This particular day trip’s main focus was golfing. We also knew we wanted to sample a local sandwich for lunch. We got a late start. Then we got a little lost. We ended up golfing until roughly 3:45. We were sweaty and starving when we headed down Main Street in Brooksville. We landed at the Main Street Eatery.  (Bonus points for the word “Eatery” in the title.  For whatever reason I like to add a random “ery” or “ski” to the end of words because it makes me laugh.  It makes me smile to find an “ery” in its natural setting.)  The decor is what I like to call cute Americana.  Sweet quotes, knick knacks, and framed posters mark the walls and shelves of the smallish restaurant.  The Bill’s Special sandy was incredible;  a super fresh and squishy sub roll piled high with ham, bacon, cheddar, provolone, swiss, mayo, honey mustard, tomato, and onion.  I wanted to lick my plate and hug our waitress.  It took forever to get our 2 sandwiches and soup.  We also got the wrong drink and I asked for water that never came to fruition.  None of this matters, however.  As we were leaving, I glanced back and noticed the hours of operation on the front door.  They closed….AT 4:00.  We strolled our happy asses into the place at approximately 3:55 and had been sitting there for close to an hour after closing; no one said anything.  On the contrary, it was one of the friendliest places I have been to.  So, if you are in Central Florida and would like to try an amazing sandwich with the nicest folks around……stop by the Main Street Eatery.  Just be more respectful and aware than me and do it before 4:00!!
