The back story is this.
Okay, okay, you didn’t click on the link, or you did click, but you didn’t read the back story. Looking for the gist, the crux, the cut to the chase. Okay, I’ll give it to you. Big Ed’s Alley Inn is THE place to go in Reno for a meatloaf sandwich. I got that from the first and foremost authority, Paula.
The lowdown from a girl that pours herself into life and knows when to say “When”:
Important sandwich lessons from the City that Reads (yes, that is one of Reno’s, or perhaps Reado’s slogans).
The later in the day that you go to Big Ed’s the thicker the slice of meatloaf.
We got there about 1:15 pm and we got 1-inch thick slabs of meatloaf in our sandwiches (way more than usual). Of course, there is always the chance that you get there after they ran out of meatloaf (which has happened before). You got to know when to hold em, know when to fold em.
