Several of the sandwiches sounded really good to me so I asked the server for a recommendation, who declared the Prime Rib Melt the most popular with the employees. It sounded really good so that is what I ordered. I loved the flavor of the thinly sliced prime rib mixed with the onions, but the bread got soggy very quickly from the juicy beef and creamy horseradish sauce. I didn’t even try the au jus because I was afraid my sandwich would fall apart in seconds flat if I did. It would’ve been better on a hoagie roll or a more substantial bun. I am also a huge fan of fresh horseradish, so I would’ve loved a little more kick than this creamy mild version served at Joe Senser’s, but that is just a personal preference. It was still very tasty. I upgraded to the shoe-string fries which were good but only slightly crispy.
My companion ordered the Mushroom Swiss Burger, which was a thick, juicy 1/2 lb patty made of freshly ground sirloin. The flavor of this burger was hearty and beefy, even better topped with thick mushrooms and melted Swiss. The bun wasn’t much of a match for this big burger; it was very light, fresh and lightly toasted.
Overall Impression: Excellent Happy Hour specials and a big selection on the menu. The vast number of Large Screen TVs, delicious big burgers and many beers to choose from make Joe Senser’s the perfect place to watch any televised sporting event or hang with your buddies after work.
