People can find sandwiches and more at Saddlebag Sandwich Shop on Route 66.

Dan and Linda Whitley and Donna Hoy own the shop, which opened Aug. 1.

Dan Whitley said his wife Linda came up with the idea for the restaurant.

"She liked the sandwiches over at the Brown Bag, and because it closed she just thought, hey it would be neat to have a sandwich shop," he said.

Whitley described the food at Saddlebag as "eclectic American cuisine." The restaurant serves food such as hot and cold sandwiches, hamburgers, hotdogs, soups, salads, shakes, ice cream and funnel fries.

Before opening, the owners of the restaurant remodeled the interior of the building, which took about seven months.

"We tried to leave some of the old stuff here and kind of decorate around it," Whitley said. "The brick is original, the rafters are original."

Saddlebag Sandwich Shop will celebrate its grand opening along with a ribbon cutting on Sept. 11 at 4:15 p.m.

Saddlebag Sandwich Shop is open from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday. It is located at 320 W. Route 66. The restaurant also has an entrance off of Railroad Avenue. More information is available at (928) 635-5951.
