Another take on the roast beef sandwich from the Buffalo NY area is Schwabl's Beef on Weck, sort of a German American version of a French Dip.

Ha...well YOU called it a french dip yourself (previous page) # 101

(You later take this back). As this is new to me, I have no way of assessing the situation but it would seem to be a variation on a theme.

That hostile attitude is unnecessary. I said it *sounded more like* a French dip. Then SilverSage found out what it really was and I agreed with her that it was something altogether different.

It's not so much a variation on a theme (which would be adding one or two ingredients) as it is combining two different sandwiches (a cheeseburger and a French dip).

Well I went to the dip and flip place - first time.

Dip & Flip

I asked if it was a French dip and they said yes, i.e. that it is a beef roll dipped in the gravy. I am done with the label debate (bit boring).

Anyway, WHAT a disappointment! Looked nothing like that enticing photo (in the link here). What I got was 2 elongated scabby rolls with wafer thin beef (could see through gaps in the long meat fibres) with the coleslaw and, yes, has to be said - the main attraction/winning part was the gravy!

I say scabby rolls because the crust looked like scabs, i.e. not a continuous crust...quite offputting and the bread seemed a bit stale but maybe deliberately so to soak in the gravy. The beef was the major let down...chewy/tough. We are used to good roast beef here in UK so the low quality was quite shocking to me. It felt like brisket had been roasted (of course this is a joint that requires long, slow cooking) and had been thinly sliced in the hope of redeeming its texture....not! Had it not been for the gravy (which was really good), I would have left it/asked for a refund. As it is I will be making a complaint since I feel it is a breach of trades description.

There seems to be THREE sandwiches on the top row on that link page -
1) Dip - which seems like a French dip
2) Flip - which seems like a cheeseburger
3) Dip & Flip - which is a combo of both 1 & 2

I would stick with #1 OR #2 NOT #3!!
I think this subject has been beaten long enough. JMO

Is it really just what it looks like in the photo? Just chips and ketchup on a roll? I can sort of see why they just treated it as kind of a joke. Talk about a carb bomb.

Actually it is nicer than it appears. It has to be butter on the bread or roll (to be authentic) and this melts really nicely into the hot chips - kind of like a variation of mash with butter.

Yes it is a lot of carbs but potatoes are my fav carb. (Not that I can even remember the last time I had this chip butty).
