In its first expansion beyond the Seattle area, Mox Boarding House on West Burnside Street is a gilded palace of geeky delight. With chandeliers hanging from vaulted ceilings and clean, heavy wood tables for playing, it’s a convincing rebuttal to the false assumption that all gaming stores must be cramped and devoid of congeniality.
At Lazy Susan, the dust—proverbial and literal—hadn’t yet settled when Andrew Mace realized things might not go as planned.

We spent a week sampling sandos at popular mainstays and newcomers alike to get a more accurate gauge on the hype, and our conclusion should be no surprise—it is well deserved. Below, we’ve ranked the sandwiches we feel are better than Popeyes’ and those that are worse.
