Roast Beef Sandwich. Maverick's has been written up countless times and received much acclaim for its roast beef. I wasn't that impressed with the roast beef the first time. This time the roast beef was better - thinner, more tender, juicier, and bit more infused with flavor but still nothing extraordinary.
Maverick's has a condiment bar with a large variety of offerings to top the sandwiches to your liking.
Pulled Pork Sandwich. If the Roast Beef was ordinary, the pulled pork was less than average - dry, stringy, and flavorless. I watched as the preparer took out a little plastic container of pulled pork, drained the juice, scoop out a handful, and then put it into the microwave to heat up. Really? I expect a microwave oven to be used at Burger King but I thought operations would be a little classier at Maverick's. I ate a Quiznos a month back and their pulled pork offering was leaps above this.
Prices have gone up since the first visit. The total ran over $11 for the two sandwiches.
I've tried Maverick's twice to give it a fair shake but it really didn't do enough for me for a third go around.
