It is located within the Gilbert Town Square shopping center near Gilbert and Warner roads.

The article does not explain why each business was highlighted, but does include a review from a "Yelper" named Melissa A. "HANDS DOWN AMAZING! The BBQ Pastrami sandwich was so full of flavor and you could taste every flavor the sandwich had to offer," she wrote, according to the article.
