Gidget’s: A simple sandwich shack

BBQ Chicken sandwich, chips and a chocolate cookie from Gidget’s Sandwich Shack.

To celebrate and kick off the spring semester, The Wichitan staff members decided to have lunch together after staff training. Yet, there was a dilemma: where to eat. We wanted to eat off campus but was not sure where to dine at. After a suggestion from sociology and criminal justice senior Bridget Reilly , Gidget’s Sandwich Shack was the clear winner. Bridget raved about the food choices and said we should eat there. Located on the Corner of 7th & Ohio (701 Ohio Ave, Wichita Falls, TX 76309), the Sandwich shop gives off a homey and casual vibe. Gidget’s Sandwich Shop serves typical sandwich shop staples like soups, salads, chips and even smoothies. I ordered the BBQ Chicken sandwich, and a black cherry Italian cream soda, the total coming out to $10.50 plus tax (Full sandwich $8.25, Italian cream soda $2.25). My sandwich came with chips, a cookie, and one pickle spear

Everything tasted fresh and I felt satisfied with my meal. The workers were friendly and picked up after us. However, there were issues dealing with payment and allergy concerns. We did not realize Gidget’s Sandwich shop only accepted cash payments until we walked in, debit cards in hand. This was an inconvenience for staff members who did not have enough money, if they had any money at all, in cash. Because of this issue, several staff members had to pay for others’ meals.

While I enjoyed the cookie with my meal, the cookie was was randomly chosen by the workers. Because of this, I initially felt hesitant to eat the random cookie that came with my meal because I am allergic to cashews. Thankfully, I did not get an allergic reaction but I suggest the customers should chose the cookie if there will be nuts in it.

Overall, with my complaints aside, Gidget’s Sandwich Shack is a great place with affordable prices and I would eat there again. However, I’m going to rate the sandwich shop three out of five stores because of the limited payment options.

Gidget’s is open Monday-Friday 8:30 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
