Yes, there's a sandwich under that pile—two slices of rye, which they offer to toast despite the flood of gravy that comes when you order your turkey open-faced.

But only a few can be described as super-mega-massively-Dagwood-Bumstead-esque comically large, and fewer still that actually taste good beneath their heft.
