Here's a transcript of the segment:

April: Hey everybody. Welcome to Good Morning Tucson's Out to Lunch edition.
 
Samantha: We are at the Sausage Shop on Prince and it is the largest sausage shop in Tucson. 
 
Big Al: Let's go on in and talk to Kent, the owner, and try a sandwich.
 
April: How many sandwiches do you have on your board right now? 
 
Kent: Fifty-three. In 1982 we came down and opened a little swap meet stand selling frozen sausage over on Limberlost and Oracle and if you remember there was a swap meet there, and then in 1984 we opened here and expanded into sandwiches and all the things we do now.
 
April: And ever since... 
 
Kent: It has been pretty good.
 
April: What is the most popular sandwich? 
 
Worker: Our most popular sandwich is the Tubby.
 
April: Why is that one so popular? 
 
Worker: Because it is our biggest. 
 
April: OK, we will get that one for Big Al. What do you think? 
 
Big Al: I like this one.
 
April: The Ruffus? 
 
Samantha: Even the meatball one sounds good. American cheese on bread
 
April: Alright, I'm going to do the Buff. I'm going to try it. So we are all good? We all know what we are eating? Alright, let's do it. 
 
Big Al: With my sanwhich, the Rufus, they throw in chips and a Spreckers grape pop. When is the last time you heard of pop instead of soda? Right out of the Midwest. 
 
Samantha: Cheers. Oh we are touching bread.
 
April: It is so good.
 
Samantha: So good.
 
Big Al: Love the coleslaw in the sandwich. 
 
April: OK, so what did everybody think? 
 
Samantha: Amazing. 
 
Big Al: Delicious. Love the soda, love the homemade Slim Jim. 
 
April: Pretty successful, I would say.
 
Samantha: I have had a lot of homemade Italian meatballs between my family and this is right up there. 
 
April: Hands down one of the best? 
 
Samantha: You can tell it has been made with love. 
 
April: Alright, this is going to be tough to beat. 
 
Big Al: I can hardly wait to see where we go next week. 
 
Samantha: Well, we will see you next Friday.
