YELP Hot Off The Press Elite Event & AJ’s Press

We hosted an event with Yelp Tampa Bay’s Elite group recently at AJ’s Press in Tampa called Tampa Bay Hot Off The Press. The Elite members joined us for a tasting in celebration of AJ’s Press being ranked #4 in the USA earlier this year by Yelp.

We enjoyed plenty of tasty eats and had a great time. We’re thankful to Yelp for all the support it has shown our business this past year! Check us out on the Yelp blog at:

Some excerpts:

Nick S.: “They served up a series of their sandwiches. Starting with a Cuban, a portobello veg pesto (who knew they had veg offerings???), a hot dog mustard and pickle sandwich, a fried chicken pressed sandwich and a brisket sandwich. They were all greatest. The combinations of ingredients were spot on. “

Lori B.: “AJ’s Cuban and the Crunchy Chicken pressed sandwiches were my favorites! Their Cuban has a great flavor, and even though its not a *true* Cuban sandwich, the taste is incredibly respectful to the original while being quite a unique sandwich on its own. The chicken in the Crunchy Chicken pressed sandwich was huge and amazingly juicy, with a crispy light breading.”

Uyen D.: “Everything was delicious but my all time favorite was the brisket- imagine a french dip sandwich almost without trying the dip juices all over you! The brisket was moist and flavorful and the relish gives a nice kick at the end! In addition the bowl was absolutely delicious – great option for those looking for something healthier. The bowl includes house made black beans with chicken, chipotle sauce and arugula!”

Owen B.: “Like most around me, the mushroom sandwich was the best of the night. It’s loaded with big hunks of portabella and topped with arugula and goat cheese. It was quite a unique taste and really impressive. I’ll be back soon for another!”
