Thank you for this! I was just reminiscing about Roy’s and how much I miss that place and how I wish I had swiped a menu the last time I visited before they closed!

Is there anyplace a menu can be bought for the old Roy’s Place?

I wish I could Roy’s recipe for blue cheese dressing. Simply the best ever.

I ate there when I was probably 5 or 6, and Im 49 now. I still remember it, because I used to read the menu that we bought there all of the time as I grew it. (It was on my bookshelf in my room for some reason.) Thanks for posting the menu – mine was lost many many years ago! I remember something about flat tires in my copy, though.

I not only have a menu (that I bought), but also Roy’s cookbook. I felt his hand guiding me when I recently recreated some Greatly Enlarged and Highly Improved Welsh and Tannerys. French bread, thick sliced bacon, sharp cheese, grilled tomatoes, and lobster salad. They turned out very close to the originals.

I went there countless times and the Greatly Enlarged and Highly Improved Welsh and Tannery was the only sandwich I ever ordered. Along with a side salad with the wonderful blue cheese dressing mentioned above, and a draft beer.

Like everyone who ever went there, I miss Roy and his special restaurant.

Bill, you have a Roy’s cookbook? Does it have the recipe for the golden sauce? If so, kindly share! Wishing you warm and happy holidays…

So I was able to find a copy of the cookbook.. It’s called Sensational Sandwiches by Roy Passin… (75$ used!)

It doesn’t have all the sandwiches or sauces, but there are a few. No golden sauce though.. I found this on Reddit though…

“For anyone interested, I found the recipe for something that at least closely-approximates Roy’s Golden Sauce.

Recipe calls for mixing of: -2 cups mayo -1/2 cup honey -1/4 cup cooking sherry -3 tsp dried ginger -2 tsp salt -1 tsp pepper”

I literally grew up coming here… I am 40 now and still remember celebrating my 10th birthday there with my parents.

I loved the Dirty Tom Glen sandwich more that I can state. The only ingredient I am unable to replicate is the Garlic Mayonnaise.

If you have his recipes, is that included?

My father and I would be forever in your debt!

I remember buying the “Good Cold Sandwich” alongside another sandwich a few days before I left to come back home to AK. I was trying to tell my wife about it and I’m glad that I found the menu to show her.
