Victory sandwiches could sell its $4 creations and leave it at that. But it also makes a “world famous” whiskey Coke slushie,  spiked sodas, fresh salads and tasty snacks. Did I mention the airy atmosphere is an inviting space to hang out with friends while you imbibe, play Ping Pong, or simply enjoy a beautiful Atlanta spring day? Also that.

While we wait, we nibble popcorn served in a silver bowl and smothered with some magically cheesy, salty topping that fills all the nooks and crannies.

A duo of sides arrives in a red plastic basket with red-and-white checkered paper. Long, flat ramen noodles are heavy on sesame and chopped scallion, with a sprinkling of salty peanuts on top. Fire-roasted street corn has a tangy, almost earthy taste, with lime crema, thinly-sliced raw radishes, and scallions.

Kale salad is the antithesis of your average kale salad. Baby kale is mixed with thin circles of cabbage, Brussels sprouts, orange wedges, and Korean chili. Thick miso peanut dressing is sweet and slightly spicy. It’s fresh and satisfying.

Except for a sandwich called Victory at Sea, which costs more because it contains white anchovies, all sandwiches are $4 each. The Cowabunga dude includes salami, pepperoni, gooey mozzarella, tangy pepperoncini, and tomato sauce. The Tea Bird is spicy (they warn you!), but not immediately. The ghost pepper jack hits 30 seconds after you take a bite… just long enough to take a few too many. Sweet tea mayo mellows things out.

The Hambo is a layered masterpiece of prosciutto, mozzarella, peppery arugula, slices of apple, and a drizzle of balsamic. The Castro is a Cuban: smoked pork and ham, a few pickles, fontina cheese, and yellow mustard.

Cocktails are expertly made and atmosphere laid back. On a spring day, Victory is a fine spot to enjoy the warm breezes of Inman Park. Bonus: It’s open late if you need a 2am snack.
