If anyone would like to try the fools gold sandwich go to Nicks Cafe on 8th Ave and Simms in Lakewood. The owner, Nick Andurlakis, worked at the Colorado Mine company as a boy and was the one to originally offer Elvis the sandwich. He was also the boy who met Elvis on his private plane when he flew in from Memphis just to partake in another artery clogging meal.
Nick's is a true all American dive and is packed to the gills with Elvis collectables. I grew up in that neighborhood and got to hear Nick's stories all the time. Below is a link to an article from the Westword that was published about Nick a year ago. Happy Eating!
