Jacqueline’s

I remember many, many years ago there was a small, somewhat dark and smokey intimate bar/restaurant that opened up “down in the flats” in Appleton WI. The name of the restaurant was called Jacqueline’s. They served the best sandwiches and my favorite was their French Dip. The beef was fork tender, the rolls slightly toasted and the sandwich was topped with melted and gooey provolone cheese, which was optional.

Serve with Au Jus

The French Dip sandwich was served with a side of au jus, which was slightly thicken and super flavorful. For some reason, and I’m not sure why, the restaurant didn’t last long. It wasn’t because of the food, the food was delicious but it might have been ahead of it’s time. They opened in the late 70’s when fast food and subs shops were all the rage and intimate dinning was no longer in style. I haven’t had a French Dip sandwich that delicious since.
