1st of all- "Is that an attack??" I believe Mr Mayor already scolded you and told you there would be no flaming

Dunno.

Does your quote above constitute an attack?

Do your chronic/frequent, negative, flippant, and/or dismissive comments constitute an extended campaign of attacks on the roadfood community as a whole?

Was your comment that you'd buy a corn dog from Jimmy John's owner (who has to my knowlege never offerred a corn dog in his establishents) even remotely topical?

inquiring minds need to know

    Nope. You should make the sub at home and bring it to work. They just get better wrapped and refrigerated. The olive oil gets deep into the bread.

    By the way, why isn't this thing in the fast-food thing?

      1- no

      2- well the roadfood administrators, moderators and probably about 90% of the roadfood community don't think so and "chronic/frequent, negative, flippant, and/or dismissive" are how youinterpret them

      and 3- Who cares I'm entitled to render an opinion

      3-

        As chain sandwich shops go, Jimmy John's is great, leaps and bounds ahead of Subway, better food for the same price or less. Plus, most locations deliver for free, and the delivery always seems quick. Their sandwiches are always fresh and come on either french bread or sliced whole wheat bread. I like the bread better than any of the so called "gourmet" bread Subway offers. There's nothing really bad about Jimmy John's. You can get better sandwiches, but you have to know where to look. For my money, Jimmy John's is the best sandwich chain there is.
        My favorite sandwich, however, comes from the deli counter of Durham's Grocery Store in Stanford, KY.

          all i can say, is that when my wife and i lived in athens ohio for grad school at ohio university, jimmie john's was our favorite place to get sandwiches. maybe because of their bread, i don't know why. but we really really miss jimmy john's now that we are in vermont!!!

          they were waaaaaay better than the 'subway' place in town, and the prices were good too. oh and they had the jalapeno chips, so very tasty. and free refills for drinks. i would give my left arm to open a jimmie john's where we live. yes, the local sandwich places are really that bad! there are no good sandwich shops in vermont.

          jimmy john's forever! can somebody send us a couple roast beef and turkey sammies from there? we will love you forever!

            very mediocre bread is forgettable no choice of cheese no butter if you want a sub and everyone is closed and you have to go then go for it. i would go out of my way to avoid this place at all costs. had a tuna sub after turning down the antique roast beef they wanted to sell me.

              a big pickle, can you quarter that so I don't turn the boys on trying to eat it in the lunchroom?
              a chocolate chip cookie

              ^^those were the days

                Not at Jimmy Johns but I once asked them to quarter a pickle and they sliced into four chunks, not slices. I did not know until I got back to the office, people there thought I was a dumb ---- for getting a pickle cut that way.

                  you know, I am not entirely sure I started this thread in the sandwich forum. May have been in "news" or in "where should I eat?".

                  In any case, I screwed up. *shrug* It should be moved to the FFF forum. Sorry.
