Schlotzsky's Launches 3 New Brisket Sandwiches

Schlotzsky's, home of The Original oven-baked sandwich and famous Fresh-from-Scratch buns, announced the launch of three new brisket sandwiches—Traditional, Cuban and Tex-Mex. The addition of brisket sandwiches is inspired by Schlotzsky's Austin heritage, and all are now available at Schlotzsky's restaurants nationwide.

The hand-crafted sandwiches are anchored by hickory-smoked brisket, full of layers of flavor and textures, and topped with fresh ingredients that are added to Schlotzsky's famous Fresh-from-Scratch buns that are baked in-store daily. The three new brisket sandwiches are:

Traditional Brisket

Hickory-smoked brisket with mozzarella, cheddar & Parmesan cheeses, BBQ sauce, sliced dill pickles and red onions. Served on our toasted sourdough bun.

Cuban Brisket

Hickory-smoked brisket with ham, Swiss cheese, BBQ sauce, Dijon mustard and sliced dill pickles. Served on our jalapeño cheese bun.

Tex-Mex Brisket

Hickory-smoked brisket with queso fresco, cheddar cheese, salsa verde, roasted red peppers, pickled jalapeños, lettuce and chipotle mayonnaise. Served on our jalapeño cheese bun.

"Our new brisket sandwiches reflect Schlotzsky's commitment to bold flavors and fresh ingredients, but also bring something entirely new and exciting to our sandwich menu," says Schlotzsky's president Kelly Roddy. "We know our customers are looking to be more adventurous with their food and as a Texas staple, brisket gives us a unique opportunity to create new menu items with flavors that tie back to our Austin roots."
