Getting into Galveston Friday later than we planned, we decided to stop and grab a sandwich at the Schlotzyky's on the Seawall before unloading at the condo. Silly me--I thought we could just go through the drive-through since we had Bea in the car with us. But Mike, who has an unaccountable aversion to drive-through lines insisted I go inside. So I did.
This Schlotzyky's is an odd conglomeration of several franchises: itself, Cinnabon, and Carvel. All crammed together in one tiny little space with one counter attendant and a couple of cooks in the back. Although the Schlotzyky's has the regular menu the counter lacked the extensive salad, chips and drinks offerings you usually find. But the cinnamon buns and cookies were front and center with the ice cream counter tucked away in a corner to the right. And a strong aroma of cinnamon filled the air, confusing the palate.
Bottom line: Mike was probably right asking me to go inside. I'm not sure how a drive through would handle your order when juggling three different menus. The sandwiches were fine--just what we expected. The ambiance was below par even for a fast food establishment. Must be due to its multiple personality disorder.
