    1- Sawdust- adds "roughage" to the sandwich

    2- Styrofoam- great spongy texture

    3- Crazy Glue-  binds the fillings together

    why oh why do you folks who eternally claim to have absolutely no interest in fast food demonstrate their alleged complete lack of interest by typing post after post in this area of the forums?

    I think everyone gets it - you don't like fast food franchises

    I have no great love of subway myself, but sheesh, why the piling on? 

    Did the CEO of subway steal your lunch money as a child or something?

    Some of the same folks piling on here were the same ones from years ago claiming they did not want to read fast food topics, and so the fast Food Forum was set up to wall off those 'unwanted' topics

    Later, those same voices protested that topics from this forum should not show up in the latest posts list on the main page, and this request was granted as well, quarantining this section of the forums off from all the others.

    The recent board upgrades make it possible to entirely remove selected forums - this one, perhaps? - from one's sight entirely.  Ie you can set your preferences so that this forum is entirely invisible - so that if you want, this forum does not in effect even exist.

    The only folks who should be left here are those who have a genuine interest in fast food franchises.....no one else should have a reason to seek this area out. 

    So why isn't this the case?

    ...and because it wasn't originally posted in the fast food section. I moved it there.

    I'd also like to extend a warm welcome to GBaxter7. From the location of Sydney and the use of the phrase "sandwich filings" I assume you are Australian. A quick search on Google Australia shows there are over 900 Subway franchises in Australia now, and I counted 15 in Sydney.

    As you can see, all of the other posters so far are American. While the Subway chain of "sandwich bars" started in Connecticut (near New York City), I doubt the sandwich fillings you can select come from the USA. I also note filling differences, such as the fact that you have Swiss, Cheddar and Old English cheese available, while we have American, Monterey Cheddar, Natural Cheddar, Pepperjack, Provolone, and Swiss available.

    I don't know how the shops receive meat fillings from the manufacturers in Australia. Here, meats such as turkey, ham, and roast beef are sliced at a factory, then shipped to the shops frozen. There are better meat fillings to be had from other suppliers - which the independent sandwich shops listed in our Sandwiches area tend to use.

    I personally don't have any favorite fillings. Most of the taste of the sandwich comes from the "weeds" they put on, such as onions, pickles, jalapeno peppers, and the salad dressing. The only time I now eat there is because I am on the road, and it is the only place handy. Subway franchises are typically taken out by business people, not by people who have a passion to prepare good food.

    We had a recent funny thread about the smell inside Subway "sandwich bars":
    http://www.roadfood.com/Forums/Subway-m540873.aspx

    Do your  Subways' also smell of baking bread?

    I can't believe I'm saying this, but... you go, Mr. Jackson!  The people who think they're being all witty and everything by posting replies such as "sawdust" are really only showing how nearsighted and laughably curmudgeonly they can be.

    (Wait, did I say "laughably"?  Erm, I meant that I was laughing with you, not at you.  Yeah, that's the ticket!  )

    This post should be moved to "Off Topic and Lighter Fare".

    I think this post is on topic because it does bring up some valid observations. Many of the posters above do have a genuine interest in fast food franchises. And their verdict is not favorable to this particular chain. In that thread about the smell in Subway shops, there were some posters who liked the smell and others who complained that the smell got on their clothes and lingered. In this thread, no one gave a thumbs up to any cheese or meat. They just favorited "weeds" or gave crackpot answers.
     
    As I have mentioned several times here, some people seem to have a instinctive sense of "something ain't right" food. It's probably part of the survival instinct. An example is the roast beef at Arby's or Old Country Buffet. It is not prepared from raw meat on site; it may be pre-cooked in a commissary or be made from ground-up scraps. In the case of Subway hot sandwiches such as Teriyaki Chicken, it also was not prepared on site. It is "re-heated leftovers", if you will.
     
    Sure, there are people who genuinely like Subway. But, the people on this board tend to have more experienced palates.

    Subway does sell (personal) pizza in some shops. We had about four threads on the subject; this is the latest one:
    http://www.roadfood.com/Forums/tm.aspx?m=326121

    AFAIK, they come in frozen and are heated in the speed oven. They are not listed in the menu section of Subway's web site, but are listed in the ingredients section. I guess individual shops have the option to offer them or not. It all depends if you are a fan of frozen pizza or not.

    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.

    The jalapenos they have at Subway are great, the only problem is you have to ask the guy/girl several times to put more than 3 or 4 peppers on the sandwich.
