Subway makes a good salad. Spicy Italian salad. $6.00, lots of fresh vegetables. Not bad.
 
But for a sub, Wegman's Sub Shop (since Weggies is now a large East coast Chain) is my current go-to sub shop,  and Jersey Mike's if there's one around.
 
There's a lot of Jimmy Johns around these parts. Pretty good, and Firehouse does a good job, too. Both of Which would be wayyyy ahead of Subway. But I'd still put Jersey Mike's ahead of JJs and Firehouse.
 
There was a Central NY/North Country chain called Jreck Subs. Better than Subway, and they also sold other items like Mozz sticks, and onion rings. When I was in college, that was the go-to sub shop. But, it's been years!!!!

Don't know about the birthday club, but if you're going to eat there sign up (with your phone number) for their Shore Points awards. After you buy a certain amount you get free sandwiches. Pays off if you're like me and have a family of four. They also frequently have coupons in the community mailer you get in the mail.

I have to tell you, if the Jersey Mike's subs available here are real New Jersey subs then I feel sorry for people in New Jersey.
 
(Disclaimer: I base that on my experience when Jersey Mike's first opened stores here a number of years ago.)

Trouble with any franchise is your only as good as the people running it. We go to many around here,including the original Jersey Mike's and they're superb high quality!

I've met several people who've been to the original and they were as disappointed as I was about the local ones here.

I've had good experiences at Jersey Mikes. Good value for the price.

That's the usual reaction. I'm so surprised Mr. Hoffman had a bad experience.

I saw a report on AOL that DNA testing has found that Subway's chicken is only 50% chicken.  The rest is mostly soy


Wait a minute... You're telling me processed chicken lunch meat isn't pure chicken? My goodness, the horror!


No, what I think he's saying is Subway's cold cuts are garbage!!!


As is about 90% of lunch meat in the world. If you want real, 100% whatever meat, it's probably best to avoid processed lunch meat altogether.




This raises an interesting question: where's the line between garbage coldcuts and the stuff that goes into, say, an Italian grinder from a respected local joint?

Clearly that's garbage and you shouldn't eat it. But, because I'm a really nice person I'd be willing to make the sacrifice and take it off your hands.

Easy way to tell: Does the meat come from a good butcher (or are you buying the sandwich from a butcher)? Or do they get it from a supermarket/food supply giant? Just as there is a gigantic difference between the kielbasa I get from the Polish meat market that they grind and stuff themselves and the "kielbasa" Eckrich sells at the grocery store, there is a gigantic difference between cold cuts and lunch meat. Thin-sliced chicken from an actual chicken breast is markedly different from thin-sliced chicken from a processed, shaped loaf of chicken (or insert any other meat you prefer here).

Is that Leethebard's family in the commercial for Subway's "Italian Hero" sandwich?

A Capriotti's recently opened in far north OKC. I don't usually eat sandwiches out, but if I am in the area I may just have to give them a try.
