Another Pueblo favorite comes in the form of a sausage sandwich, or “grinder,” and the Pagano family has perfected the art. Whether it be lunch or dinner, Puebloans flock to the several local locations for a taste of the best sandwich in town. The Passkey Special is a piece of fried Italian sausage, sandwiched between two slices of fresh hoagie roll and topped with cheese and shredded lettuce. The entrée is served with mild green peppers and french fries, and has been satisfying cravings since before 1952. The sandwiches are quickly made, freshly served and always tasty.
