I was disappointed in Jersey Mike's. I like Jimmy John's ok if I can't get a real sandwich somewhere, but I hate their employment practices. Who makes a minimum wage grunt sign a noncompete clause? Ridiculous.

In any case, if I do spring for a sandwich to be delivered, I make sure to give a massive tip.

I've never tried Jersey Mike's, but given the positive comments on this thread, I'll have to give them a try if the opportunity presents itself. I think Jimmy John's is OK, but not really all that good. I tend to avoid them. I wasn't aware of their employment practices, but now I have another reason to avoid them.

Firehouse Subs, I like them very much. Too bad the closest ones are at least 30 minutes away from me. I've only had Earl of Sandwich once (it was at the I-95 rest stop in Maryland that another poster mentioned) and I really enjoyed it.

Technically they have gluten-free options, but it is an apples to oranges comparison when you’re talking a sandwich compared to a wrap.

They're not bad, but they're nothing all that special.

The one use I had for Jimmy John's was that there was one near where I worked for many years, and on a break I'd go there because they genuinely are fast - within 90 seconds of beginning to verbalize my order, I'm walking out the door with a meal in hand.

It's fast food. The whole point of it is not to be great, but reasonably palatable and quick.
