I thought I was going to spend my time before work on Thursday cleaning out the gutters and raking leaves, but an e-mail from my boss interrupted that plan.  As soon as possible, I needed to get on the road and head towards Detroit.  I had a job assignment in the suburbs that I would be meeting a co-worker at.  They didn’t know the time and place yet, but it was important that I get on the road as soon as possible.

I showered quickly and started heading east.  It was just before 1:00 and I hadn’t eaten lunch yet.  I was really hungry by the time I pulled off the highway for gas in Albion and I started looking for quick places to grab a sandwich.  I figured there had to be some kind of sandwich shop maybe a little closer to Albion College.  As luck would have it, I was right.

Gina’s Pizza & Deli is on Michigan Avenue just barely inside the Albion city limits on the east side of town.  As I figured, it’s just a couple blocks from Albion College’s campus.

The pizzeria is a standalone building with a large parking lot.  It appears it used to be a bank that they converted to a pizzeria.  The set up is order at the counter then they bring your food to you.  The business is quite a bit larger than I expected with a pretty good size dining room.  At 1:30 on a Thursday afternoon, there was a decent amount of people enjoying a late lunch.

The menu can be a  little overwhelming at first, but I was looking for a sandwich.  I wanted a pizza, but I was going to be in the car, so a sandwich was the only option.  

I quickly scanned the sub section and quickly found one that sounded good.  I ordered a 12″ Italian sub on white bread.  The sandwich is three Italian meats which the menu doesn’t specify, plus provolone and mozzarella cheeses, a creamy home made Italian dressing, lettuce, tomato, onion, and peppers.  I asked to leave most of the veggies off leaving only the lettuce.

The cost was just a little over $10 and almost as soon as I sat down, I was being handed a bag with napkins and the butcher paper wrapped sandwich.  I think the total wait time was five minutes or less.

I started trying to eat while driving but that turned out to be a bad idea.  The dressing made the sandwich a little messy, so I stopped to save my shirt.

When I got to my assignment in Detroit, I dug in to the rest of the sandwich.  Despite the hour and a half drive, the sandwich was still pretty warm from the toasting.  The bread was a little crusty and it was filled with a decent size portion of meat.  The Italian dressing is what made this sandwich so tasty.  It was creamy, a little spicy, and added a whole lot of flavor to a simple sandwich.

Gina’s Pizza & Deli was a pretty good choice for a quick pit stop.  I needed to get something quick and they were very quick, but even better, it was very tasty.
