Big Queues, Big Sandwiches
It's been quite a while since I've visited North's and it looks like they've had a change of management with the little Italian nonnas that used to pile all the lettuce and tomato onto the thick slices of bread been mostly replaced with Asian ladies. The fillings station seems to be alot more organised and less haphazard too and the sandwich makers seem to make up the sandwiches with a bit more care as well.
These sandwiches are huge and I generally start to feel my jaw ache half-way through the second half from all the bread chewing. I think you could comfortably share one between two but I like the challenge of trying to finish it. Get there early to avoid the long queues.

The slices of bread are usually cut about 2 fingers thick. Lots of crust for putting hairs your chest!
