Anybody here with these sandwich shops in their area? I heard about them a while back but didn't get to try them out until last year. A lot of people I know have never tried or heard of them. They seriously make the best sandwiches I've ever had. I don't think it is possible to make one taste better. Just wondering if anybody here has them in their area. I know they are still sorta small. http://www.jimmyjohns.com/homepage.aspx

what I usually get. turkey sandwich with avocado and I ask for bacon on it.

But seriously, I love their speed. Asking for all the ingredients up front makes the process go way faster than Subway. And, unlike Subway, they don't assume you want A MOUNTAIN OF LETTUCE FHWQFJEWOFJQOQFJFOIQF!~!!!!!!!

I've had both and I think Jimmy Johns wins hands down. Just a lot of their ingredients is so much better. Their bread for one.

Pretty boring but they have nice bread and the meat/veggies taste fresh. Jimmy John's shits on Subway from the greatest of heights... BUT, the best sandwich chain is Potbelly's (Potbelly Sandwich Works/Sandwich Shop).

http://www.potbelly.com/

Get the Wreck and add giardiniera/hot peppers.

I love the meatball from Firehouse. The only ones in Austin are way in BFE compared to where I live though so I never get to eat it. :( It's mostly a local chain here called Thundercloud which is pretty underwhelming. At least I can get my Potbelly at lunch.

As long as they aren't putting the meat from those animals in the food it doesn't bother me.

I'm usually not in the mood for cold sandwiches though. I prefer hot sandwiches, even though Which Wich takes forever in comparison.

I tend to like the hot sub places like Penn Station, Potbelly or Firehouse but Jimmy Johns is great.

I normally get the Vito or Italian Night club with Peppers

I've never had a sandwich from Jimmy Johns. I looked at the menu and they look like they would be good. I really like Jersey Mike's Famous Philly. I like Larry's Giant Subs, too. I get the Big Boss Man or their meatball sub.

I like hot sandwiches better than cold sandwiches. Does Jimmy Johns have a good hot sandwich?

I was going to say they are okay sandwiches with great delivery services but, now...
I will make my own sandwiches because they are way better and cheaper.

Ate Jimmy Johns for lunch, delicious.

Firehouse is overpriced. The only good thing about it are the Coke Freestyles.

Protip: Mix Orange and Vanilla flavored Coke or Dr Pepper or whatever for a Creamsicle Soda.

I like most sub places, but Jersey Mike's feels more like a genuine Deli style shop that the rest. As far as Jimmy John's is concerned, I don't really think their subs are all that great and prefer just ordering a regular sandwich if I ever go there. The majority of the time I'm at Which Wich because my wife likes it best.

Firehouse I used to enjoy a lot years ago. I finally decided to go back a couple weeks ago and found it pretty sub par overall.

Yep. They're delicious. I don't feel like crap after I eat them unlike I do with Firehouse. Jersey Mike's is good, also. I had one a few nights ago and the taste just didn't sit too well with me, though...

It's pretty good. Compared to Subway, the ingredients tastes much fresher and higher quality. It's not as delicious as some of the shit at Quiznos, but JJ's doesn't have the feeling of regret that Quiznos gives me either.

I'll eat all of the above though. It's food, I won't pretend to be elitist about it.

I liked their veggie sub.

Last time I ordered.. they didn't put the sprouts on it.

I asked them for sprouts, and they told me they were discontinued in February.

Funny, because the menu at the store, and on their website, still lists them as an ingredient on the sandwich.

Annoyed me.

If you have a Potbelly's in your area, give it a shot. Just an absolutely amazing sandwich and they're insanely fast as well.

Also quite cheap, only costs like $4.86 after tax for a standard size sandwich. They also have the most amazing cookies in the world for quite cheap ($1.20 or so). I stopped getting them though since I looked at how bad they are for me... as many calories as my sandwich. :(
