It's more like a veggie sandwich with lobster flavoring.

The real sandwich definitely looks like it and probably tastes like it too.

If you have ever had a real lobster roll - what they are trying to emulate - this is no where near it. I was in Maine some 20 years ago when I first had a lobster roll from a vendor outside of the LL Bean up there. The local McDonald's were advertising the same so I tried one of those. It was puke worthy.

If you want a taste of what a Subway lobtser sandwich is going to be like try their seafood salad and get food poisoning. It is not pleasant.

I've dreamed about walking into a Subway one day and saying (as I point to the huge pictures they have plastered on their windows showing a huge, stuffed sandwich) "Make mine look EXACTLY LIKE THE ONE IN YOUR AD PLEASE"...lol

Of course not. Advertising is nothing but politics at its most creative

It sounds like gas station sushi.
I won't even order lobster at a real restaurant unless I know the lobsters are alive in a tank. I don't think even places like Red Lobster have fresh lobster.

One thing they taught us in the schools was to beware of deceptive food advertisements. For ice cream, they use shortening so that it looks better and has the benefit of not melting. Grapes have olive oil poured over them to make them look tastier and fresher. etc.

What little lobster that was in it tasted ok but what i got isnt whats being advertized..
Wont get fooled again..
Nasty letter sent to Subway..
In all fairness, any foot long sandwich you get at Subway will all look like they have a disproportionately small amount of meat, and there really isn't that much meat on them. That's why I pretty much only go to them when they have a $5 foot long deal. Actually, last I checked, they upped it to $6 foot longs. Except for the other day a month ago, I haven't eaten at Subway in almost 2 years.


I have to visit local joints, but from many of the areas I've lived in, I know a place to get better sandwiches if I'm going to spend $6 to $9. Jersey Mike's is a regional thing. There's a Mexican place that sells tortas for $6.60, but the lunch special also includes free side of rice, beans, and drink. The beans also come in a broth with bacon and collard greens. Another one charges $7 for a large sandwich, but all the toppings (except lettuce), chicken, and beef are hot (the meat's chargrilled), and usually can't finish it in one sitting.
