FOODGARBL Austin: Native American cuisine, ver nice price

by tony on April 6, 2010

Attention Central Texas: the following is a genius recession-busting tip!


The Austin-based sandwich chain, Thundercloud Subs also goes by another name … Makes Subs With a Fist.  Not since John Stamos and Sacagawea hooked up at that first Pilgrims/Indians networking event has there been such an honest recreation of the First Thanksgiving.  FOODGARBL Austin went totally supper for lunch today and decided to try Thundercloud Subs for the 503rd time.  It was almost exactly like that first blessed meal of fellowship:  I was literally starving, there were men with long braids, we got there using horsepower and turkey was served.


Believe me, I know it sounds crazy, but after 502 chances Thundercloud did not disappoint.  Their freaking sandwiches are so good that when I order at the counter, it feels the same as scoring some crack rock under the bridge at 5th and I-35.  Or so I’m told.  My only words of wisdom prior to ordering are: don’t call it a sandwich.  It’s a sub.  Just like the staff on a cruise ship, the Thundercloud employees will make you sing karaoke if you call it a boat.  Huh?


We apologize (no we don’t) for the lack of advice on Thundercloud’s menu selection, but everything on there is just so ass-slapping good you don’t need advice.  Seriously, you can’t lose.  I think I’ve eaten their sliced possum sub with charcoal shavings and Korean cabbage stuffing and the shit was delicious!!  They could probably even convince me to order the secret sub that’s not even on the menu … the Donkey Drool Club with spicy Right Guard mayo on 12 grain inbread.  I guarantee you I’d like it.


Just check out that sub and tell me it doesn’t make you want to meet Squanto and the gang down at the T-Cloud Subs on Riverside for a Tejas Tuna.  I’m so thankful for the two turkey-tracing hands I’m going to use to grab that bountiful cornucopia and force-feed myself a healthy harvest.  Did I mention a bag of thinly sliced baked maize pieces and a paper pulp container of flavored bubble water for very little barter or shell currency??

Dear f00dGarblista,

I’d say your best bet is to scud missile launch yourself toward the center of Austin, as there are many Thunderlocations and there is a high probability of you hitting one. Bone ape tit!

Why is everything in Austin so much cooler than stuff in Dallas? I want some ThunderSauce on my sub! TWSS

Can’t wait to try a T-Sub for myself some day. Thank you for the enlightening commentary from Austin!

Sounds like this place might be bringing the submarine back in sub. I can’t wait to roll on down to the ATX to get my hands on one of them Po’ Boys…

Keep up the good work GARBLer!
