Are there that many people out there eating sub sandwiches but not really caring or understanding that they're possibly not eating at the best establishment? That maybe, just maybe, they're eating only, sadly, at a place they're merely accustomed to, what they've settled to be comfortable with?
It would seem so, otherwise we wouldn't be so inundated with so darn many sub shops around..... Subway, Jimmy John's, Firehouse Subs, Quizno's, Planet Sub, Schlotzsky's, Jason's Deli, McAlister's Deli and others.....
So in the name of 'Food Science' (cough), I will be undertaking the next Bachelor on the Cheap Challenge: Who makes the best subs? I'll be going through the restaurant list, one meal at a time, sampling sub sandwiches from the national chains..... What? Eat nothing but sub sandwiches for lunch AND dinner? Like I said, done in the name of 'food science'......
Here is "The List" of sub shops/deli joints I have and will be trying out during the course of this challenge:
- Subway - Day 1, Lunch
- Jimmy John's - Day 2, Dinner
- Quiznos - Day 3 Dinner
- Planet Sub
- Firehouse Subs - Day 1, Dinner
- Schlotzsky's - Day 2, Lunch
- Jason's Deli
- McAlister's Deli - Day 3 Lunch
- Goodcents Deli Fresh Subs
Who has the best sub sandwich? The worst?
It's 'Day 4' and time for lunch. I traveled to Jason's Deli on this occasion, ordering the Deli Club which is described on the menu as: Ham, roasted turkey breast, bacon, cheddar, Swiss, leafy lettuce, tomato, mayo, on toasted multigrain wheat. Does that sound deli-icious or what? Did you see what I did there.... 'deli'-icious?
So how was my Deli Club?
This ladies and gentlemen, is an incredibly AWESOME sandwich. And yes, while it's true bacon makes everything better, I could take the bacon off this thing and it would STILL be an awesome sandwich, just not quite as incredible. Jason's Deli STACKS this thing with meat, the most generous portion of meat on a sandwich I've bitten into so far on this challenge, in fact, I couldn't get my mouth around this thing it was stacked so high. The veggies were fresh, the cheeses - also generous in portion size, were on point and the wheat bread was toasted perfectly. Great ingredients, excellent preparation, thank you Jason's!
I paid $7.94 for this huge sandwich and a bag of chips. Jason's Deli is Bachelor on the Cheap friendly and their Deli Club is DEFINITELY a repeat buy. The service was fast, friendly and all smiles. Jason's gets 5 out of 5 Bachelor on the Cheap stars!
