Larry's Giant Subs

Received a 2-fer ad in the mail from Larry's Giant Subs--
I had never heard of them, but this is a Grand Opening
Special for the new joint in the St Petersburg area----
 
Anyone have any thing good or bad to say about them ?

    Are  they related to any other sub chain?

    Not that I am aware of---I read their home page and I think they are independent----seems they are owned and operated by a Jewish Company---even have a Jewish Sub department---a Reuben Sub for instance----subs served with a Kosher Pickle.  Would you believe ?

    Well, considering the fact that Moses originated the submarine sandwich back when he was scouting for a place to put down some stone tablets so he could fix himself a little lunch, it doesn't seem at all strange to me that there would be a sub served with a kosher pickle. And boy was that sub of his messy -- salami and all that stuff everywhere in his beard and sandals. I'm thinking it probably had a lot to do with that unleavened bread. You know how that stuff can just crumble when you take a bite.

    We have a "Giant Hamburgers" here in Mesa AZ.  Probably not connected.

     Actually Mr Hoffman, Moses named the Sandwich while taking a lunch break from building some kind of underwater vessel to cross the Red Sea. After eating the sandwich, he stood up and waved his arms in joy after savoring the delicious concoction and the waters parted thus making the underwater vessel no longer necessary. He Exclaimed, "This Sandwich is now our New Submarine"!

    I believe, he said tongue in cheek, actually that might a pretty good sandwich, with a shmear of mustard and the kosher dill, that the Sandwich was credited to the Earl of Sandwich.
     
    The Earl was a prodigous card player, but as happens, he got hungry while playing cards, which happens to me often while playing poker. So in order to prevent his hands from becoming greasy, he had his minions put slabs of meat between two pieces of bread, so that he could eat while playing cards, thereby not ruining the cards.
     
    This practice continues today in some cardrooms. In the wee hours of the morning, some cardrooms provide sandwiches to the players gratis. The practice, more common in days past, still continues today in some rooms.

    A fist sandwich would be a handwich.

    Michael Hoffman I really don't believe that story, but if you say so I will
    give you the benefit of the doubt---after all, as JoeRoGo says, you were there. 

    Has anyone ever been to Larry's, that is the question ?????

    This chain flew under our radar; only a few words about this chain show up on a site search. People may have not realized it is a chain because it sounds like a single sandwich shop. I count 77 locations listed on their web site. They are exclusively in the southeast.

    Hey, I wasn't there. I was busy scouting for a good place to camp. Hell, after than damned bush started burning I didn't want to be anywhere near the guy. I mean, would you want to hang around some guy with a couple of concrete tablets filled with suggestions?

    The camp grounds were plainly marked on the maps given to all participants,
    if you had to scout you must not have been paying attention, Michael.  As for the guy with the cement tablets he was last seen being balled out by Cecil B DeMille.  Musta
    broke a tablet, or something.

    So now I found out that not only has no one ever gone to Larry's, but they flew
    under David's radar.  So, David, where were you when Larry was flying under your radar ???

    I never pay attention. I am without fault, thus attention must be paid to me. I thought you were aware of that.

    So, David, where were you when Larry was flying under your radar ??? 

    I was referring to the collective radar of all the folks here on RF. We have discussed Miami Subs, Subway, Jersey Mike's, Quiznos, Blimpie, Firehouse Subs, etc. but not Larry's.

    theres one here in Daytona. I haven't tried it yet.
    I don't know what the Giant means
    might be bigger than a foot long. but it might have the same amount of meat as Subway.
    I was raised on Franklin Ave. GIANT Grinders in Hartford, CT.
    and they are GIANT.almost 2 feet long with over a pound of meat.
