I am LOVING Alvin Ord's Sandwich Shop in Port Royal, SC. Take a side trip on your way to Hilton Head to find this little, bitty place on Rt.21. Located a few miles past Parris Island Marine Corps Recruit Depot, this tiny sandwich shop makes a big taste splash. The secret is in the bread, a disc-shaped piece of heaven that is a cross between French bread and an English muffin in texture. Three cheeses are baked into it, as well. The result is a tender, toothsome treat that is filled with just the right amount of your choice of meat and topped with mayo, lettuce, tomato and onion. The sandwiches come in three sizes...small, medium and large. The small was really perfect. You will need a BIG appetite to finish the medium or large sandwiches, but they are the perfect size to share.
Alvin Ord's gets very busy between 11am and 1pm, so call in your order in advance if you can. We arrived at 1:30, though, so walked right up to the counter. Bring cash, too, as checks and credit cards are not accepted.
This is my new favorite sandwich stop!
