You really can make a silk purse from a sow's ear...

Have you ever been to a restaurant that makes everything in house?  That' what you'll find at Noble Pig.  They serve the best sandwiches and absolutely everything is of their own creation.  It's a little hard to find them the first time since they're in a little strip center on 620 and El Salido.  Just look for the gas station kinda next to them.  OK, enough about where they are let's talk about their food.

They only do breakfast and lunch normally though you can sign up for their 4 course dinner offered about once a month.  I haven't had a chance to try the dinner so if you have let me know what it was like.  I have had breakfast and lunch and I have to say they are good at their job.

Let's start with the Duck pastrami reuben.  I'm not a big fan of the duck, it's just too greasy for me.  Well that all changed when I bit into the reuben.  It was quite delicious having the same familiar tastes of beef pastrami but also that unique duck flavor.  And it didn't come out greasy so that was a plus.  They serve it on their own bread which is cut a little thick and toasted.  It stands up well to the rich flavors inside and doesn't fall apart before the last bite.  Add a nice portion of sauerkraut and Russian dressing to round out this delicious sammie.  And yes they serve the reuben proper with Russian dressing not the 1000 island you normally see.  A tip of the hat to authenticity.

Their signature sandwich is the Noble Pig.  It's certainly pork friendly with a spicy smoke ham and pulled pork heading the charge.  Then they add even more flavor with bacon and a little provolone cheese to round out this symphony of goodness.  Hopefully you'll go with several people so everyone can get a different sandwich and share.  Because good friends share the good things in life like this sandwich.

I've also tried their Knuckle Sandwich.  It's filled with roast beef so tender you could.  Hmm.  Love me?  I got nothing but this sandwich has it.  Why is it a Knuckle Sandwich?  Well when you bite into it the roast beef, onions and cheddar cheese combine for a flavor explosion and then you get knocked out, in a good way, with their horseradish sauce.  Not too spicy but not afraid to stand up and get your attention either.  A must have for those macho types.

All the sandwiches are served with chips and homemade pickles.  So when you start feeling a bit peckish and the hour is close to noon head on over to Noble Pig and taste some real home made food.
