Award-winning twins make pretzels that are TWISTED (in the best way)

Jess and Amanda are totally in sync as they take orders and make fresh sandwiches from their cozy food trailer - also known as Anchor End Pretzel Shoppe.

It would be challenging for most people to work so closely together, but these two women have know each other a long time - in fact, their entire lives.

See, Jess and Amanda Lewis aren't just co-owners of the business. They're also twin sisters.

They were in kindergarten when they started cooking together. Years later, people are lining up for their unique spin on sandwiches, all showcasing their signature pretzel buns.

The names of the sandwiches are as unusual as the ingredients.

  • Dictator: Pulled pork, fried pork belly, Swiss cheese, stone ground mustard, pickled jalapenos, and Seattle Pickle Co dill pickles on a pressed cinnamon sugar pretzel bun.
  • Resistor: Slow braised cold-cut brisket, chimichurri, pickled onions, tomato jam, a hint of pickled jalapenos, and arugula, on a sea salt pretzel bun.
  • Trustafarian: House made veggie patty, Swiss cheese, house 'mayo', tomato jam, and Farmbox Greens radish sprouts on a sea salt pretzel bun (Vegan without cheese).
  • Seasquab: Fried egg, monterey jack cheese, maple aioli, and poblano pepper slaw on a French toast battered sea salt pretzel bun (you can add fried pork belly).

You may recognize the twins from their appearance on the popular Food Network Show, "Guy's Grocery Games," with Guy Fieri, where they took home the $20,000 grand prize. They plan on using the money to open up a future bakery in Shoreline. But don't worry - pretzels will still be on the menu!
