Big changes at Dolci & Joes

Dolci & Joes, a sandwich shop with a following at 3425 E. Douglas, has changed or tweaked just about everything about how it does business in recent weeks, and even bigger changes are coming in the next few weeks.

A couple of weeks ago, the restaurant switched from a standing-in-line to order system and introduced table service. Now customers come in, take a seat and order from a waiter or waitress. The move has cut down on the amount of time customers spend in line during the busy lunch hour, managers said, and hurried diners can get in and out more quickly.

Dolci & Joes also recently started a “lunchbox” special” that offers customers a half sandwich and choice of soup or house salad for $6.99.

In recent months, the restaurant also has introduced a breakfast menu that includes items such as breakfast burritos. In the next couple of weeks, the restaurant  plans to offer a more detailed breakfast menu plus a dinner menu, which will include items such as steaks, chops and chicken. I’ll post an update when that menu’s ready to go.

Dolci & Joe’s is open from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays. Breakfast is served from 7 to 11 a.m., and when dinner starts, it’ll be offered from 5 to 9 p.m. For more deitals, call 316-613-3515.
