Lay's Sour Cream and Onion chips.

Subway built their empire on freshly baked bread on site. I wish Subway would stop messing with a good thing.

Subway cut their bread differently all of a sudden in order to compete with Quiznos toasting their subs...but Quiznos is tanking and on their way down the drain.

Why is Subway now messing with how they bake their bread? I sampled their newly formulated bread and it now has the texture of a morning sausage and egg croissant. What the hell?

Locally owned sandwich shops have been making great subs for decades. Now Subway is trying to improve on the design?

I love sandwiches. Subway is good but I prefer getting sandwiches from local shops and there are many local sandwich shops in my town. I prefer having a plain chicken sandwich and a cup of coffee from there. :)

Had a 6 inch meatball sub at Subway yesterday, with green peppers, provolone, and black olives on it. The sauce was a little too sweet, but the sandwich was a cut above bologna and mayo. The meatballs had a great texture, but were very bland in flavor. I'm-a just-a gonna have-a to make-a some meat-a-balls with-a some sauce, eh. (my best, cheesy, fake, Italian accent, like the ones from one of our local pizza joint's radio commercials.

Beware of Submarina sandwich shops. Super high prices and stale chewy old bread. I should have suspected something when I saw 3 different tables with the sandwiches half eaten on the plates after they left. Mine was the 4th table with a half eaten roast beef sandwich after I left.
Submarina is a pretty big national chain without a formula for success.

I too like some delis that are located in liquor stores that feed the masses during lunch hour , particularly roast beef with avocado, lettuce and a tomato on an onion roll. Subway is pretty good too but is almost too formulaic. Every Subway ad shows a ton of veggies piled on that don't necessarily belong on some sandwiches.

I'm not sure of the complaint here. You get to choose your own toppings, so if it's deemed more attractive to film the ad with toppings that don't suit you, that shouldn't affect your rating for them. 99.9% of all the food you see in adds is not visually representative of what you get in the restaurant.

(By the way, I'm not a tout for Subway - just like their sandwiches)

Then there's this little deli in a Marathon Service station on U.S. 2, in a little town called Guliver, between St. Ignace and Manistique, MI, on the North side of the highway, that has one of the best subs on the planet, at least for me. The bread is white, but very soft and pillowy. The fillings are Provolone, good salami, pepperoni, and capicola, with your choice of veggies. I like mine with black olives, onion, tomato, and green peppers. The meats are abundant. A splash of olive oil goes over the veggies, and the whole thing is toasted.

The outer crust is crispy, with the whole thing being super tender and yummy in the extreme. Now I like Subway well enough, but this little deli put them to shame, IMO.

Ok, now I'm drooling. Time to go.

A drizzle of vinegar and I'd be a happy woman!
