Hobnob Corner Restaurant and their Pot Roast Sandwich (#Super46)

Just about an hour south of Indianapolis, in the tiny town of Nashville you’ll find the Hobnob Corner Restaurant right in the middle of town on Main Street. One of the best dishes at the Hobnob Corner Restaurant is their Pot Roast Sandwich. The sandwich isn’t actually on the menu, so you’ll have to ask for it if you want to try it. The sandwich starts with homemade French bread lightly buttered and heated up on a flat top grill. Then add some of the Hobnob’s slow roasted pot roast topped with a nice Emmental cheese and some sautéed onions. Finish it off with a special horseradish sour cream sauce and the other half of the French bread and you have a delicious sandwich. Just look at it!

I honestly wasn’t sure what I’d think of this sandwich when I first ordered it. I enjoy a good pot roast, but I wasn’t sure how a pot roast would work on a sandwich. I shouldn’t have been worried at all. All the favors worked so well together, but the thing that pulled the whole sandwich together was the horseradish sour cream sauce. While it wasn’t spicy and didn’t have a ton of horseradish in it, there was just enough to add some zing to the sandwich.

There are plenty of other things to try at the Hobnob Corner Restaurant if the pot roast sandwich isn’t what you’re looking for, but the best way to describe the Hobnob is comfort food. From quiche to French onion soup and potato soup to breaded tenderloin sandwiches and biscuits and gravy, if comfort food is what youre looking for, you’ll find it a the Hobnob Corner Restaurant.

Eric Cole (the owner’s son and the one who originally created the Pot Roast Sandwich) has begun dabbling in charcuterie – homemade and cured meats. They even have a few of the meats available on menu items at the restaurant and they plan to add more over time.
