Have you tried Quiznos?

Actually, the local Subways are fine -- quick food customized the way I want it.  They have white bread, whole grain bread, and flat bread options, and the fillings are pretty fresh.  It's better than a trip to McDonalds.

So, instead of ranting, vote with your feet.

Subway here is terrible.  Their vegetables taste like they've been marinated for an hour in a bucket of water.  They might have been decent at one time, but not anymore.

I do like Firehouse Subs though smile.

Also Subway makes my stomach hurt.  Not unlike my thread on Dominos & Pizza Hut:  "It looks like food, it tastes kind of like food, but my stomach says "This ain't food."" lol lol

It's a place I stop when I want fast food, and I consider it better than the other burger choices. I can get a load of vegetables on it, and it's filling enough. Don't want to live on it. Just want to keep going till the next meal.

My expectations are low, and Subway meets them. It's sort of on a par with Jimmy John's that way.  Yes, I like Quizno's better than either of those, but the Q is disappearing.

I live on Long Island, the land of German, Jewish and Italian Delis. I avoid Subway unless there's no other choice...

For 7 bucks at subway I get like 4 pieces of meat, for 7 bucks at a Deli I get 4 pounds of meat.... (Ok exaggerating a little but there's nothing on a subway sandwich)

As far as chains goes, Blimpie's was once good but has declined... Quiznos, I tried to like it but I couldn't...

If I'm remembering right, Subway (along w/ many of the other chains like them) buy their bread in bulk, ship them, freeze them, & then thaw them out as needed.

I don't mind subway once in a while, but stay away from the iced tea. I was in early one morning while they were setting up, and next to the iced tea dispenser was a big plastic canister of powdered iced tea mix. The label on the canister and the dispenser said "fresh brewed". I guess if you name something "fresh brewed", you can call it that, even if it isn't.

Subway bread dough is shipped to the stores frozen. An employee takes them out of the box, spritz's them with water and puts them in a proofer to rise for a set amount of time. The trays are then placed in the oven to bake for a specified time. They are then moved to the cabinet you see them get them from to make your sub. Supposedly they are baked fresh daily (however I bet some stores will use last nights left overs to start the day).

I think that the can was the sugar sweetener that they put in the tea. They brew both with big tea bags, then dump in the powdered stuff to make their sweet tea


+1 for Jersey Mikes...definitely the best around besides Firehouse subs!

There was a Subway down the street from the La Quinta at the AZSO.  I picked up a couple of sandwiches when I was there.

I agree, they are pretty decent out here.  In fact, I can't think of a bad story.  The best was the Sheridan in Vancouver BC.

Maybe eaten subway 20 times in my life though.

On the rare occasion I need to eat there, because there are no better options nearby and I'm hungry as a mofo, I just get the wheat bread with spinach, lettuce, cucumbers, olives, green peppers and banana peppers and jalapenos.  Nothing else.

No dressing. No mayonnaise. I don't eat meat or dairy anyway, and their veggie patties weird me out, because they are most likely highly processed.

I think it actually tastes pretty good with just vegetables, and while the bread might have some sketchy ingredients in there (mostly likely), it's at least low-calorie and filling.

I also wish they make it more cost effective to to get 6" subs or even a 4" sub so a person who is trying to lose weight (Jared or otherwise) can not take on nearly so many calories. 6" should cost exactly half of 12". Simple.

The worst food poisoning I have ever had was from Subway it was awful. My husband and his mother ate there with me we fought over the bathrooms for hours lol.

That Subway was shut down to many reports from the health department.

Jimmy Johns all the way it is soooo much better than Subway!

Real Italian bread is not dry nor close to Subway.
Source? My Northern Italian Grandmother who made everything from scratch.
She came over from Milian by boat.

Subway is pretty bland in my opinion, every time I've had a subway, I find there's too much bread, and EVERYTHING has that stale/vinegary taste to it.

I just don't find them that appealing, I've had them where the bread was soft and warm, but the fillings just tasted all the same, due to that viniger taste.

Subway is cheap and decent. There are of course better out there but not for 5$.

I'm not a huge subway fan but I do eat lunch there on occasion. I can't say I've ever had a bad (dry) bread experience.
