Post Your Favorite Subway Sub

I get the same freaking sub every time I go to Subway. I go there at least once a week. Here is what I get:

Spicy Italian with Monterrey Cheese bread, toasted, with pepper jack (double the cheese.)

Toppings:
Lettuce
Tomatoes
Red Onion
Black Olives
Jalapenos

Dressing:

Mayo
Chipotle Sauce
Salt & Pepper

Note: The toasted part makes a HUGE difference for me.

Please post your favorite Subway sub here so people can get a new idea on what to order. All those toppings available is intimidating somtimes!

Don't eat there. If I want a good sub I'll go to Jersey Mike's as a chain. I much prefer several of our local, single store places.

i rarely go to subway for a sandwich as i find their meat, especially the ham, to have a kind of plastic look and taste. their meatballs are horriffic, imo.

but on those rare occasions (there's one open 24 hours just a few blocks from my job), i will go for their heavily mayo'd tuna on a footlong, 9 grain honey oat bread, with hot peppers, vinegar peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers, spinach, and extra onions.

besides the "meats", another reason i keep trips to subway to a minimum is that the aforementioned sandwich is over 1000 calories before adding a side of chips and a soda.

I like a good tuna sub from Subway from time to time. I always get freaked out when I see the big yellow or white slabs of egg they use on their breakfast subs. I reckon it's the same stuff that is used in all fast food places, I just get the heebie jeebies from seein' it

I don't care for Subway. They aren't very popular around here. I frequent a local deli that makes a fantastic Italian sub. My favorite subs are Italians and steak bombs.

here's their nutritional info: Nutrition Information List | SUBWAY.com

i was a little off my calculations.

470 calories for a 6 inch tuna sub, so a footlong would be 940 calories before adding cheese or other toppings.

Subway isn't as good as it used to be, seems when they changed
the way they cut the bread, the subs got less good. Maybe it
is psychological, but...
When I do go there, either the tuna or the BMT on wheat, with
lettuce, tomato, extra onions, pickles, oil, vinegar and mayo. Extra mayo.

+1

I won't eat there either because of their weird cheapo "meat"

The final time I went in a Subway I ordered the tuna and it was so grotesque I threw it in the trash.

Luckily there's a local sub shop on every corner here, should I have the urge. I like Italians with provolone, hots and oil and vinegar.

I go to Subway every once in a while. There aren't many goo d sub places here and the only ones I know of are a haul, and there are 3 Subways within a couple miles (one dead behind the house).

I get the spicy Italian with tomato, lettuce, onion, and if they have them the sweet bell peppers. A little oil and a lot of vinegar.
