Las Vegas, NV - Mr. Sandwich is a locally-owned and run Vietnamese Cuisine Restaurant, offering a variety of menu items including Vietnamese Cuisine favorites like Banh Mi sandwiches and pho noodle soup. They also specialize in staple beverages like Thai Iced Tea, Vietnamese Coffee and Boba Tea, and have a separate vegan menu to cater to the large growing vegan population in the Las Vegas Valley. They have been open for about four years.

Located directly across from UNLV, Mr. Sandwich provides an extensive menu for many UNLV students and staff. August 6, 2018, Las Vegas, NV.

Mr. Sandwich is located on 4626 Maryland Parkway, Suite C, which is directly across UNLV Greenspun College of Urban Affairs building and the UNLV Student Union, and is frequented by both UNLV students and staff. In fact, Mr. Sandwich is so dependent upon UNLV traffic that they close early on Saturdays and Sundays.

Manager John Nguyen takes orders from customers on a busy day at Mr. Sandwich. August 6, 2018, Las Vegas, NV.

“Unless there’s a tour bus or something special, we close early on the weekends. There’s no business in this area on the weekend,” said Manager John Nguyen.

Nguyen knew nothing about the proposed light rail project that if built will undoubtedly impact their business. Nguyen was concerned when hearing about the light rail project, especially when it was brought to his attention that the road may be shut down for an extensive period of time. "Why didn't anyone tell me about this?" he replied.

He eagerly took a survey and flyer for the Pulse of the Parkway Exhibit on Friday.
