I went to Subway today after a long hiatus. It appears to me that the only sandwiches that have any real fillings are the $7-8 ones. Even the $6 half sub with the drink and snacks comes out to $7 something with sales tax. And they don't have the seafood sensation sub anymore. That was the most filling $5 footlong available when Subway still had that deal.

Subway is expensive and very poor quality. I haven't eaten there in several years. Lots of better choices for the same price including my fabulous local grocery store (subs).

The local Georgio's Pizza makes pretty good subs as well, especially the house special subs.

I knew a guy who would order double meat on a 6" since the bread in a 12" was simply too much. I told him you could get a foot long back when they were $5, and just strip out the bread, while keeping the extra portion of veggies and meat, but he just preferred it his way.

Well, in your example with sewer water, it's not the water people are worried about. It's the other things in sewers that make it gross.

I figured Panera bread was more natural than that! If nothing else, given how expensive they are

Even before, I'm sure they were a lot more natural than Subway, now they'll just be even better. I got an email today from Papa Johns about unwanted ingredients. Panera chose 89 ingredients that they have put on their "no-no" list. 35 of these ingredients are not in their food today, while the remaining 45 will be gone from their food by the end of 2016. Papa Johns says that 54 of these ingredients are not found in their food, and that by the end of 2016 they will have removed all but 10 of these ingredients (email didn't say which 10). Chipolte currently uses 9 of these ingredients and apparently has not announced any plans to remove those ingredients.

I don't know how many of theses ingredients Subway currently uses, but they have said they will be removing all artificial colors, flavors and preservatives by the end of 2016.

It all depends where do live. Five bucks for two meals is not bad.

I don't eat at Subway because it's just not that good and so many alternatives are available now (Jimmy Johns being one of them).
That's why I don't eat there either. Their sandwiches are bland and tasteless, and always have been. Even when I did eat there, the only sandwich I liked was the meatball sub. And when restaurants start taking out the meat and putting more and more bread in its place, thinking I won't notice, they've lost me as a customer for good.

Got some coupons in the mail. $6 for a foot long? Now that's more like it! I've got enough of them for 3 to 4 subs over the course of the next month, which is about how much of it I'll be able to eat anyways.

I like Jersey's Mikes 1000 times better than Subway. Just saying.
