The menu follows the "more is more" principle. There are twenty sandwiches, almost all of them overstuffed, as well as burgers, hot dogs and gyros (and salads, appetizer dips and milkshakes, too). The "B.A.B.L.T." might be the best example: It stands for bacon and bacon, lettuce and tomato and is made with a half-pound of bacon. There's also the "Big Bend Mafia," its garlic hoagie roll soaked with the juice from what must be at least eight ounces of thinly sliced and shredded Italian beef, with salsiccia, provolone cheese and spicy, chunky giardiniera. You can barely hold the sandwich in your hands, but you'll savor every last garlicky, meaty bite.Visit the RFT restaurant page late tomorrow afternoon or check back here Wednesday morning to see what I think.
