Eric Stewart: Running Off At The Mouth

Olde World Cheese Shop

It doesn’t take much to find out I don’t like cheese, and if you know this, you’re probably wondering why I’d do a review (or even visit) a restaurant with “Cheese” in the name.  I’ve had two visits to this restaurant recently, after probably a four or more year absence – I don’t know why, but just hadn’t gotten around to going there again until very recently.

Be careful what you order here – some of the sandwiches can get very big, and you might want to take half home if you get one of the big ones.

So, if you’re interested in something sandwichy but different from your usual burger or sub, I suggest you take a run to the Sherwood Forest Shopping Center at 11001 North 56th Street in Temple Terrace, Florida. It’s good lunch-time fare that will put a dent in your hunger.
