Jake's Sandwich Board opened on 40th and Sansom streets.

Sandwiches, shakes and fries are now available on 40th Street.

Today is the grand opening of Jake’s Sandwich Board on 40th and Sansom streets. The eatery, featured on BuzzFeed’s list of 11 Wonderful Sandwiches in Philadelphia, will be giving away free nine ounce Sriracha bottles to the first 500 college students to enter with valid ID.

On Dec. 3, University City will be home to Jake’s “3 for All” Deal, where sandwiches will cost $3 from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m.

Jake’s slow-roasted sandwiches are neighbors to Hai Street Kitchen, Zesto Pizza & Grill and Dunkin’ Donuts. Hours will be 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily. This is the restaurant’s second location, with the original on 12th and Sansom streets.

“We’re excited to come out there and are looking forward to meeting a lot of new people once we open the doors,” Gary Dorfman, co-owner of Jake’s told The Daily Pennsylvanian earlier this year.
