This Westport Restaurant Serves a Homemade ‘Mile High’ Meatloaf Sandwich That You’ll Crave Until the Cows Come Home
Calling all meatloaf lovers. I have found the holy grail of sandwiches and it's in Westport, Massachusetts.
Over on Route 177 is a quaint little breakfast/lunch restaurant that not only has delicious food, but is family-owned. It's called Lexi-Lu's Place and when it comes to good eating, these ladies know how to cook.
Lucy Arruda, the co-owner of Lexi-Lu's, is the creator behind a revolutionary menu item that's dominating the lunch game. It's called the 'Mile-High' Meatloaf Sandwich and it's one of my favorite go-to's whenever I visit.
I will warn you: This sandwich is not for the faint of heart, for it is large and it is in charge (of your tastebuds).
Starting with the bread specifically, the crew at Lexi-Lu's begins with a buttered-up zesty Texas toast garlic bread that's strong enough to keep together and contain the sandwich as a whole. Within the thick slabs of toast is where you'll find a creamy mashed potato base, again homemade, adding to the overall texture of this monstrous sandwich.
Time to bring in the meatloaf that's piping hot and fresh out of the oven. Made with love and all the right seasonings, the meatloaf is just as tasty outside of the sandwich.
Next come the strips of bacon for the salty and savory flavor, topped off and drizzled with a smooth hickory aioli sauce.
Word to the wise: Let this bad boy cool down before biting into it because it's always served hot out of the oven. Do I have your attention now? This sandwich will fill you up and even create leftovers for those with smaller appetites.
