I have always loved their salad and breadsticks! Corporate america is brutal, but that's what makes it brilliant.

Um, I have to disagree on the "brilliant" comment, but since we don't discuss politics here, I'll leave it at that.

Really? How about this: roast beef and Swiss cheese on a 6-inch French roll with mayonnaise, mustard, lettuce and tomato; a bag of chips; a piece of fruit; and your favorite beverage; all stuffed into a brown paper sack and taken to the nearest park?

I worked full time for 50 years and I can count the number of times I went to lunch in a restaurant without taking my shoes off, and most of those were company functions where attendance was pretty much mandatory.
