It’s a common debate: Make dinner at home or get it from a restaurant? For one local couple, there is no question. Jose Font and Richard English brought Chip Brewster to the Turnpike’s Rest Stop in Spring Hill, where you can build a sandwich so large that you’ll be eating it for two or three meals.
