The Bodo’s Order
Insert your favorite Bodo’s sandwich here.
Everyone has their go-to order at Bodo’s. Charlottesville’s signature restaurant feeds 6,000 people per day. Sure, the options are endless. From the assortment of bagels and toppings, guests can play Iron Chef and create a different sandwich on each visit. Or, if they prefer, they can choose from the Bodo’s ordering guide, which includes dozens of unique combinations recommended by those who know best: Bodo’s staff. Work your way through them all.
But, amidst the variety, everyone has an order that they come back to time and again. Like a child reciting a poem by rote memory, they can say it by heart. Like this: “Deli-Egg and American on an Everything, cut in half.”
The Deli-Egg’s greatness is well-documented. Originally, it was a way for delicatessens to use scraps of deli meats and cheeses. Bodo’s version includes diced ends of pastrami, corned beef, ham, capicola, salami, provolone, Swiss, and Muenster, all folded into an omelet. Requesting more cheese some might consider gilding the lily. But, indulgence is no time for half-assing it.
