This thread made me realize that nobody has sandwiches on the menu down here. How odd.

What I would give for a Reuben, an Arby's, a French Dip or any of those. Lots of weird ham but no real lunch meats or deli stuff. No breads other than "Bimbo" style, lol.

Sigh....maybe we're healthier, lol.

I found it interesting that some people listed Firehouse, because I never heard of that chain until I went to Canada. I just looked, and there are five of them in NJ, including at EWR. Brisket and cheddar sub, soooo wonderful. There's also another here called Mr. Sub that is good.

Normally when in Jersey, I would go to a local, non-chain shop. Tried the nearby Jersey Mike's, but I wasn't impressed. There's a local Jewish deli that I love for a good REAL pastrami sandwich that I wish I could have right now, but it's too far away.

If I want an Italian sub, I go to a pizza place, but again, that's in New Jersey. Ontario is a desert when it comes to good Italian food. One the other hand, a good fried fish sandwich can be found anywhere here.

I love Pret a Manger. Tuna with cucumber on a baguette.

No five dollar foot long deals anymore (on meatball/cold cut combos)...but still get them at SUBWAY occasionally.

The London Sandwich Chain Birley Sandwiches is owned by Robin Birley, who also owns 5 Hertford Street (5HS), where Prince Harry and Meghan Markle first met.

Birley's mother is Lady Annabel Goldsmith (née Vane-Tempest-Stewart, formerly Birley), and the famous London club Annabel's was named after her.

In terms of Subs, Dom Sub's in London is widely recognised as serving some of the best.

PS - In my last post, I misspelt the British Bakery chain Cooplands, which is not Couplands, which is an Australian bakery chain.

British Bakery and Sancwich chain Cooplands.

D.Z. Aikin's in San Diego is pretty good. Just wish they were 40 miles closer.

I make the best grilled cheese sandwiches!

I go to Burgerville for a good hamburger and order the number 6. https://www.burgerville.com/no-6-burger/

For a decent Reuben, or other pub style sandwich, I visit McMenamins, a Portland chain of pubs that has good sandwiches.

In the latter two cases, I always request going light on their sauce. I eat half of the Reuben and take the other half home. I eat the entire burger, though.

Me neither until we saw one and I ordered something something steamer (not Cleveland) and it was damned good. I mean, damn.

Those chain sub joints are not too bad, but they are not what I would consider a really decent sandwich. Where we used to live in California we had an Italian deli that made really good sandwiches, and we bought other things there. We still stop for a sandwich on the road when we are down there on vacation. Still amazingly good prices, too. I haven't found anything even close here, though I really haven't looked that hard.
