Victory burst onto the scene in 2011 as a scrappy little sandwich spot with excellent sliders, an instant-hit ping-pong table, and a wicked sense of humor. Then there was the slushie machine.
I’d gladly pay $10 for the Beeter (beet “pastrami,” white kimchi, and Thai pepper mayo) and probably more for the Han Cholo (chorizo, Cotija cheese, tomatillo salsa) at this ATL favorite. But at $4 apiece (chips included), this has to be the greatest meal deal in America.
This “trendy yet affordable” sandwich shop “sets itself apart” with “awesome, unique sliders” and “dangerous, delicious” Jack-and-Coke slushies, served from lunch until 2 AM; a “great patio, music and games” help make it an “epic place.”
When too many of your weeknights have already included a glass of cheap wine on a bar stool, head to Victory Sandwich Bar. Play ping pong over a few whiskey Coke slushies, or if it’s super crowded, get a Vicnic Basket, which includes a blanket, sodas, sides, and a few sandwiches for under $30, and head to the BeltLine instead.
My most recent coup de foudre is the idiosyncratic Victory Sandwich Bar in Inman Park, home of the itsy-bitsy $4 gourmet sandwich—along with inexpensive slushies made of Jack Daniel’s and Coke, cult movies, loud music, and Ping-Pong games for relieving frustration.
“Victory serves sandwiches until 2 a.m.,” Steven says. “I usually order the Castro, with slow-roasted pork, ham, Fontina cheese, and yellow mustard, and a Tecate with a lime. And they have Ping-Pong tables. If you get a good volley going, it actually feels like exercise.” - Steven Satterfield
