At Toffino's, located at 880 Farrow Parkway in Myrtle Beach, our waitress Donna took good care of us, answering our numerous questions and bringing us satisfying sandwiches.
Husband Henry had the Cheesesteak with the “Works” ($6.39); beef, cheese, grilled onions, mushrooms, and banana peppers. He declared it to be “perfect.” Sarah and I split Toffino's best seller, the Italian Hoagie ($6.39) with provolone cheese, mortadella, cappicola, and Genoa salami. The hoagie roll was chewy, one of the meats a little fatty, the Italian dressing excellent. (They should bottle that stuff and sell it.) The overall combination of ingredients equalled a tasty and filling sandwich. We had sides of macaroni salad, potato salad, and coleslaw.
For dessert Sarah ordered a pretty-looking chocolate eclair to split around. However, the crust tasted a teeny bit stale, so our waitress graciously allowed Sarah to select something else. The “Lemon Square” she chose was yummy — a flavor like wonderful lemon chess pie — and had a marvelous, flaky crust.
This eatery is actually a bakery and deli, and is justifiably popular. Offering for sale lots of pastries, breads, cheeses, etc., etc. as well as serving pizzas, sandwiches, and salads, Toffino's makes life happier and easier for the nearby residents, and tourists, who discover this food mecca.
