These Fat Sandwiches Hit the Spot Fat Sal's is just a roadside shack in Westwood, UCLA's college town, but it regularly draws a line down the block, especially as the night goes on. The deli—which also has locations in Hollywood, Encino, San Diego, and Austin, Texas—is known for its inventive sandwiches. The classic Fat Sal comes with mozzarella sticks, onion rings, fries, and roast beef all stuffed together between two slices of garlic bread; other items on the menu manage to include between-the-bread ingredients like bacon, fried eggs, coleslaw, and chicken fingers. It shouldn't come as a surprise, then, that Fat Sal's is especially popular with carousing college students on a Friday night—but the indulgent handhelds are just as effectively delicious sans alcohol, too.
