Just wondering if there are any places like that around here. Sandwich places for the most part, but quite a bit different than Subway types.

Cousins Subs for sure, a local Wisconsin chain, but higher caliber than a Subway. Good hot pastrami subs. Don't go much but that is because I try to stay on the gluten free regiment.

The best. Some are intimidated by the neighborhood, if so Benji's in Shorewood is a nice substitute. But I think this person is talking about Cousins/Jimmy John's/Erbert's n Gerbert's style fast food sub, of which there are literally dozens of places around town, just like everywhere else in America.

Another one to try is Philly Way, rated best cheesesteak outside Philadelphia by a local Philly mag. Depends on what you're looking for.

Glorioso's may have the best subs in Milwaukee, and the prices and service are competitive with the chain sub shops around town.

Thank for all the good suggestions so far. I'll definitely try to check them out.

Actually, I tend to lump Cousins, Jimmy John's, Quiznos, Firehouse ect. in with Subway in terms of overall concept even though they may be better. Some really stand out like Gold Coast or Penn Station (my favorite of this style), but they all basically have the same goal.

The two I mentioned are a little bit different than any of these, they're both very large regional chains, and they aren't quite like the neighborhood deli. Actually, neighborhood deli might be what they're trying to emulate, but of course, that style can vary a bit. They aren't full-on fast food, but not a full restaurant. Their stores are larger like a restaurant, and the food presented more like a restaurant. If you dine in, it comes on a plate, not wrapped up. Nothing fancy, but certainly not like the others. Hours are like a restaurant serving lunch and dinner, open until 9 (my biggest issue with Jake's Deli some mentioned). The menus are bigger than the Subway types, with a wider variety of sandwiches, soups, salads, and..... gigantic baked potatoes loaded with your choice of things like pot roast, tex-mex chicken, meatballs and marinara sauce and so on.
Okay I'll admit it, the potato part is mostly what I'm after. These are the only two places I've seen with that style of potato. I was hoping to find a similar type of place Milwaukee. It doesn't have to be a deli or sandwich place, but my guess was that they'd be the most likely to have this. These are nice places to go when the family can't fully agree on where to eat.

Just make sure you go to the southside branch. The Brady Street one is a different owner and the quality is much different... check out some of the reviews on Yelp.
