The Corner Pocket Sandwich Shop is not new to downtown Garland, but it is new to me! It was opened in 1975 at the corner of Sixth Street and Main. It is now located at Sixth and State Street. The owner is Mark Zigler, who purchased the business in 2004.
Mark was excited about being a part of downtown Garland. Mark said, “It’s a hometown atmosphere where you get to know everyone. It’s like a family, people are not just customers, they are friends and they support you”.
Vickie Rogers is the Manager and has been there several years. Everything is fresh and made on location. One new addition to the menu is custard. They also have many flavors of custard. In honor of “Sweet School Year” Week, I decided to try their frozen custard after hearing rave reviews from some friends. They have a variety of flavors from vanilla to smores. I decided to try the Butter Pecan in a waffle cone. Only one word could describe it….AMAZING! I could say it was simply delicious because of the over 100 degree weather, but that would not be true because it would have been perfect in 30 degree weather, too! Their main feature is not the Frozen Custard though. They have soups, salads, sandwiches and potatoes. A longtime favorite is the MAC, a mushroom, avocado and 4 cheese sandwich with chicken or tuna salad.
