Even those on tight budgets won’t feel squeezed at the new Gimme2 Sandwiches & Salads in Huntington Station.
A friend and I stopped into the bare-bones place (with a few tables) for a takeout lunch. The first thing that impressed us was the hospitality of the crew, which gave us samples of the all-natural all-fruit berry smoothie (which, I thought, actually could have used a little sugar, but I'm not a smoothie person to start).
From the specials board, both a Cuban (roasted pork, ham, Swiss cheese, pickle and mustard) and a Reuben (corned beef, Swiss cheese, sauerkraut and Russian dressing) sandwich turned out to be meltingly good and $5.95 apiece.
A near-classic Cobb salad ($5.95) featured bright greens, ripe red tomatoes, moist grilled chicken, crisp bacon, sliced avocado and crumbled Gorgonzola. All that was needed to make it a textbook example was hard-cooked egg. Oh, yes, and dressing — but, as it turned out, none was even needed.
Then, there was a seasoned house-made roast pork sandwich with barbecue sauce on a toasted bun. A lot of flavor for $3.75.
