A mistake was made in scheduling an pick order for midnight but it was meant for noon the next day. I called at right away, Amir was very understanding. He said to come back tomorrow at noon and speak to the owner. And he will make that bomb hotdog for you. 5 stars in customer service! 100% would come back again. The bomb hot dog was really delicious :) it was a lot of food for one person. Would recommend sharing, and eating it right away. The cheese was so melty and stringy. The small potato/ hickory sticks was great as well.

These massive sandwiches were all over social media so I decided to try it out for lunch.
The hickory stick things were soggy, the meats were just cheap over-processed deli meats (not the high quality kind), and the bread was really dry and nothing special.
The portion was huge though which makes sense as to why it was $18 + tax. I could only eat half in one sitting, but was not looking forward to the other half.
Ps. A little birdy told me that a lot of the rave reviews on Google were fake

I have flagged visiting Topol Sandwich for quite some time. I haven't dropped by downtown Richmond Hill for a while. I decided to drop by on Saturday.
After shopping at Hillcrest Mall, I ordered the following items on Skip the Dishes:
- Chicago-style cocktail sandwich
- Mexican corn
The app said that my order would be ready in 25 minutes. Cool! I took my time leaving the mall and heading over to Topol Sandwich.
It's street parking in front of this eatery on Yonge Street, which is what you'd expect being downtown. There was plenty of parking at around 2:30 pm. I parked and noticed a man in a pink shirt, enjoying patio seating steps away from my car. It was nice to see.
I walked into the eatery. There were tables and chairs for dining in, as it has been over a week since Richmond Hill went into stage 3 of businesses reopening. I was the only customer.
A woman walked out to greet me. I said my name and indicated that I was picking up an order. She let me know that she needed more time. I had to ask her how much time she needed. She said 7 to 8 minutes. She hoped that it was okay. I thought that was an odd statement. I said that I'd wait outside.
I am fortunate to be a patient person. If I had a short fuse, I would have not liked the hope-it's-okay statement. I'm more analytical on how things are worded, to make the customer service experience better, especially when I have time to reflect. It would have been better if she had simply stated that the order is taking much longer to prepare than expected, that it would take 8 minutes, and that she was sorry for the extra time she needed to complete my order.
Anyway, I left the eatery. What to do on a hot summer day? I didn't want to head back to my car. Instead, I walked over to a bench in front of an orthodontic clinic (it made me think of my having braces on eons ago and that office didn't have a bench outside!), sat there, and watched people walk by as the sun shone on me.
I took off my mask. Can you imagine mask tan lines on my face?!
After ten minutes, I walked back into Topol Sandwich. This time, I got a man at the counter. I explained my order and my name. Moments later, my order was ready. Yay! He wished me a nice day and handed my order over in a paper bag with handles. I thanked him and left the restaurant with my food.
I had my food when I got home. I was thrilled to chow down with a cold beverage.
The Chicago-style cocktail sandwich is $16. It runs steep. However, it is so stuffed with ingredients that I couldn't each the whole thing. I had half of it for my late lunch-early dinner, and the other half for lunch the following day.
Topol Sandwich offers a fully Halal menu. My Chicago-style cocktail sandwich had Persian beef cocktail sausage, sliced mushrooms, tomatoes, potato sticks, Swiss and mozzarella cheeses, and special sauce. I chose this sandwich because I love hot dogs and sliced mushrooms.
This sandwich is hefty. Topol means fat in Farsi. I get it now. This place packs so much stuff in its sandwich that I get the price. It was delicious. The entire sandwich is so flavourful. I loved the sausage, tomatoes, and potato sticks. I wasn't sure whether it would be Hickory Sticks that you get in a bag. Nope, they aren't as crunch, but it's such a fun sandwich that I enjoyed them. It has pickles, which wasn't listed on the app's menu. I had to take them out because I've never been a fan of pickles in sandwiches.
There's a lot of cheese happening in this sandwich. It's great for cheeseheads. I would have enjoyed less richness (you'll never see me order a four-cheese lasagna or a three-cheese pizza), but it was still delicious.
The Mexican corn was $6. I thought it would be a small side. Nope, it was a huge portion in a round aluminum container. It had corn, mushrooms, potato sticks, all mixed in a creamy cheese sauce. I loved it. Again, it's cheesier than my personality and how I like corn in genreal, but it's corn and mushrooms with potato sticks. It's all good in my books!
Other than the tardiness of the promised pickup time on Skip the Dishes, I had a great experience. I'd like to come back and try more sandwiches, minus the pickles.
Come with an empty stomach and your appetite!
This sandwich place is BOMB! I had the Bomb Hotdog sandwich and it was full of flavor and the bread was perfect! I can't wait to go back and try more of their delicious sandwich combos. The portions are huge and you can literally save the other half for later.. it's packed with so much fillings that you get your moneys worth. I can't wait for my friends and family to try this place with me! The downside is the wait times.. but it's worth the wait! Can't wait to eat from here again!
We ordered 2 Bomb Hotdog for take out. Although it's a bit pricy, it's good enough for 2 people.
