I like the pizza and meatball subs the best. I never get anything else there.

...they have pizza ????


Subway used to have a Pizza Sub on the menu, Jared made them take it off.  This comes from a recent CNN report.

CNN
Some Subways will still make you the popular pizza sub from the 1990s. Once the chain decided to make their focus healthy eating, the pizza sub disappeared from the menu in most places (the word is that Canadian and Mexican Subways still offer them on a regular basis). But if you ask, lots of places will still make it for you. Be warned, though -- Jared would not approve of the nine slices of pepperoni and copious amounts of cheese slathered in marinara sauce.


That Pizza Sub was one of my favorites.  My opinion of Subway went down at about the time Jared and that stinky bread smell emerged.

Does anyone remember 'the old cut?'

Another favorite from Subway, though not technically a menu item, is simply ‘the old cut’, where they dig a trench in your bread instead of just slicing it, leading to better cold cut and veggie distribution. Also known for causing The Wing Effect, where your bologna hangs out the sides of your sandwich for some tasty pre-nibbles.

I eat DiGornio's every so often - used to be better than it is now but it is still not too bad.

Why someone would buy pizza at Subway eludes me.

because they like it.   it's not all that complicated.
If I lived in Jersey the last place I would go for pizza is to Subway.  Oi gevalt!

It's difficult to talk about favorite Subway stuff because it is a chain that offers less than really good submarine sandwiches here in the United States. The best sub sandwiches come from little, out-of-the-way places -- local Italian grocery stores, etc.
 
Here, a really good cold sub has Genoa salami, mortadella, capicola, roasted red peppers, olives, provolone cheese, good olive oil, dried oregano, salt, pepper and good bread.
 
Subway, here, doesn't offer any of those things, beyond the salami, the cheese and the oil, pepper and salt -- along with really bad bread.

GBaxter7, I invite you to look at the FAQ to this site:
http://www.roadfood.com/FAQ/WhatIsRoadfood.aspx
Roadfood "is non-franchised, sleeves-up food made by cooks, bakers, pitmasters, and sandwich-makers who are America’s culinary folk artists." Subway is made and sold by BUSINESSMEN.

Perhaps you would like to tell us a bit about yourself, about your interest in Subway, and if the sandwich fillings used by Subway are superior to those available to other "sandwich bars" in your area. We may be laughing, but maybe Subway is the best you have.

Wuah, someone has been taking notes while watching CSI!

I'll bet he's just a franchise owner as is trying to get some feedback and insight. Albeit he's doing it really poorly.

Good sleuthing!

GBaxter7, would you mind telling us the motivation behind the original question. If you are a proprietor seeking customer input its better to just come out and say it.

woops.  wrong thread.  but, regardless, while i'm here, i'm glad to see that so many people here have such exquisite taste, and the ability to demonstrate that taste with their posts (by looking down on that of others).  you go girls!

From EBaxter's post opened on egullet at the same time, in response to someone asking why?

I ask as a Subway store has opened near my house and I'm curious to know if there's any specialised fillings people request, instead of just ordering what's on their menu.

err, i wasn't looking for another thread, stumbled on this one, and posted anyway, as you seem to be suggesting with your childish attempt at sarcasm.  i was intending to post on another thread which i've also been following, and posted on this one accidently.  as there's no 'delete' function that i can see, i figured i'd just blank out my comment, removing the non-germane post (a concept you might want to consider).  i then figured i'd point out that you all have such awesome taste, and are able to illustrate this so well by sh*tting on the taste of others. 

so many concepts seem so very difficult to posters here.  i've never seen such a thing.

It's funny but in our area we have many many sub shops from Publix to all kinds of mom n pop places but we also have Subway's seemingly on every corner. When I lived in another area Subway was one of a few choices near work so I ate there probably once a week. I usually had Turkey, no cheese, almost all the veggies sans olives and brown mustard. I was trying to lose weight and this was a good choice for a fairly low cal lunch.

.....as there's no 'delete' function that i can see,

Tommy, you can completely delete a post so long as you did not open a new thread, i.e. are the first poster. To "blow away" a reply to a post:
1. Sign In.
2. Find your post.
3. Place the cursor over "Message Options".
4. A box will drop down. Click on the second one from the top that reads "Manage Message".
5. In the box that opens up, click on "Send this message to recycle bin".
6. In the dialog box, click on "OK" to confirm the deletion requestion.
7. The page refreshes. Your message is deleted. The message numbers of later posts are renumbered.
 
If you started a new thread, all you can do is edit it to something like: "Moderators, please delete this unnecessary post".

Subs are regional in availability.  I was doing business in Canada a few years ago and Subway was about the only convenient place to get a sub - Tim Horton's doesn't count.  There was a Canadian sub chain that was an absolute clone of Subway, but we went to the original.  It made a quick, healthier than burgers and poutine, lunch.  I did get sick of them after a while.

I often used to go to Subway for lunch, Northern Ireland doesn't have a huge selection of places to eat like this part of the world and there definately is no sub shops apart from Subway.  Where I worked I had the choice of some expensive little cafe I wouldn't have had time to go to, McDonalds, Burgerking or the fish and chip shop, so I went to Subway because I could get a sandwich for £1.99, it was relatively healthy and it was quick which suited me.

My local Subway (then) had a manager's special on at Christmas which I kinda liked, hot chicken and stuffing, I thought it would be horrible but it wasn't too bad.

No I'm a proprietor seeking customer input.
This is a specific fast food franchise - non roadside

"I ask as a Subway store has opened near my house and I'm curious to know if there's any specialised fillings people request, instead of just ordering what's on their menu."

Actually, there is.

The Veggie Max. It's not on ANY Subway menu here, but if you ask for it, they will make it for you. It's basically a tvp patty & you can jazz it up with any of the available toppings, like marinara sauce, the philly cheesesteak toppings, etc.

It's the only thing I can think of not on the menu anymore. They won't do any of their sandwiches without ham anymore, or at least they didn't used to, so I stopped asking. They told me the meat comes in prepared like that (on a piece of waxed paper lined up with the other meats to go on each sandwich, rather than the person behind the counter having to keep track in their head what's on each sandwich.)  Awesome. *shakes head*

The tuna salad at Subway is dicey. I'd rather have Cousins any day. Also in the last 10 years or so they have hired an elephant to come sit on the bread after they make your sandwich. In college (mid-90's) when they put your sandwich in the bag, it filled the bag out nicely. Now it's almost like it was made on sliced sandwich bread, it's so flat.

No, no, no. I was talking about the pizza sub, not pizza literally. The sub is just pepperoni, sauce, cheese on bread. Hey, my wife likes to eat there sometimes because she's allergic to shelled seafood and Subway offers the fake stuff. She likes it and brings subs home sometimes. I cant help it.

Actually, they have a sandwich, at least in the Midwest, that's pepperoni with a sorta tomato sauce that's supposed to taste like pizza. I've seen the odd one or two that do serve pizza, but I haven't tried either of these treats yet, and I do like Subway, more because it's cheap eats as opposed to good eats, but hey. I like turkey and the fake crab meat fillings.
