Yeah, people who like JJs must really love their salt and mayo, the rest of the sandwich is just along for the ride.

I don't do Jimmy Johns. I just can't bring myself to contribute to the big man-child's big game slaughtering trips.

(I know I'm gonna get flamed for that. Whatever. I'll decide where my money goes)

Lord Montagu was nice enough to let them use the name.

I resemble this remark.

P.S. If you want to set fire to your mouth, try their “Liquid Stupid” sauce. (OK, I’m a bit of a wimp when it comes to hot, to me it was over the top.)

That's precisely it. Even when asking for "EZ" mayo, the sub is doused in it.

I once ordered the Unwich with ez mayo, and since there was no bread to absorb the copious amounts of it, it leaked all over the place. There was so much of it. I can't imagine what it would be like to have their "XTRA." Yikes.

I have never tried either one not sure I ever will. Where I live there are just too many good to great independent sub shops or as some here call them grinder shops. I do fully understand that it's not like that in other parts of the country.

If I had to pick a chain sub it would have to be Danny's Special at Wegmans. That is one delicious sandwich!

We had a Firehouse Subs near us and they closed. Talk about lots of salt. Not my favorite.

When I was in Philly frequently using Amtrak, Jersey Mike’s was emergency dinner at 30th Street Station before a 4+ hour evening train ride to New England. It’s OK but I’ve certainly had better subs.

I'm not comfortable with that either. But what offends me even more is his policy of making employees sign a 2 year non-compete agreement. Even the low paid part time drivers!!!

Happily, the somebody sued and the court struck down his ability to continue doing it. And made all the signed non-compete agreements invalid.

But I'm personally still not going to spend money there.

We have both. I prefer Jimmy John's, though Jimmy John himself really is kind of a d-bag. I generally avoid supporting the company, but during pregnancy cravings, all bets were off.

Of regional sandwich chains, I was glad when Chicago-born Potbelly cropped up in my current city a few years ago. They're my favorite of the sandwich shops.
