    the evidence suggests your experience with sloppy joes includes memories of gravy.

    I see burgers on lots of menus. Where are the sloppy joes? Not in the places I go to. Maybe this is a regional thing and someone will produce a sloppy joe map of North America. Then the Brits will pipe up "we call it a Bunty", and the Scots correct, "yah wee daft Sassenach. That's a Hogmaggis!" Then we'd be making progress.

    I work with someone who can't eat onions. Maybe it's something like that.

    Just to clarify, SJs are not spicy at all, in my book.
    But for instance my folks can't take anything that's even tangy-ish

    'nasty gravy'? I have been in the back alleys in the smallest restaurants in company towns in China and had some of the most amazing food imaginable. I could pretty much guarantee that it isn't served in any part of Europe...

    I'd agree that rethinking MIGHT be helpful, but probs not at the place who makes sloppy joes....

    the venerable sloppy joe is venerable.

    That was just an expression, so don't get your panties in wad -- also an expression, until it's not.

    We all know this guy. Contrarian. Loves to quibble. Sees every one-off concession as some sort of moral victory. If they were serving pan fried hamburgers, he would have requested a sloppy joe.

    I love when you admit you are wrong. It is like Fonzie.

    the sloppy joe banh mi. It was a thing, maybe 6, 7, 8 years ago. Here's a video in which a Vietnamese chef and a person convicted of insider trading construct a sandwich made with ground beef, sauce and other stuff.

    My evil twin Skippy says that the sloppy joe was a thing of legend in elementary schools throughout the mid-western states, once upon a time and often, the only thing that was reliably edible.

    Hey, Skippy, here's a quarter.

    if that really delivers the banh mi goodness, then I'm giving it a pass.

    But like I wrote, I only know sloppy joes from grade school cafeteria food.

    It's an association I can't get past. Not food for adults.

    Don't forget about the sloppy joe's first cousin, the chopped beef bbq sandwich.
    Available in bbq restraunts everywhere.
    Mighty tasty.

    There was once a TV commercial with a pretty dark haired female in it - maybe the product was called Manwich.

    I would like to have gotten introduced to her.
