The Press, located in the King Family Commons, added a limited-time brisket melt to their menu on Monday.

The sandwich includes thin sliced brisket, layered with pepper jack cheese and apricot jelly served hot on a bagel. 

Valeria Davila, a cashier at Magnolias Zero 7, has already tried it. “The sandwich tastes really good, it’s toasted and has cheese on it.”

He described the sandwich as “…very mouth watering, it’s actually very good, warm, juicy, it’s definitely the best sandwich at The Press right now, it tops all the other ones.”

“I would want them to have this all the time,” said Zavala. “That would be awesome.”

The sandwich is available for one meal swipe and includes a piece of fruit and a bottle of water.
