Good luck to you.
I will probably get a Reuben in the fall. I tend to want those as the weather cools. I do agree about drastic diets. I've been on a few. My strategy now is to eat two fewer meals per week, and I've cut down on bread. I can't cut out sweets, because I don't eat many sweets. I have also cut down on other simple carbs.

But now I have to begin a low fiber diet prior to colonoscopy. Grrr--. I eat as high fiber as possible, normally.

Chicken Salad Chick is what it's called.
We have them near me. I'm pretty sure it's based in Alabama. I've only had it when my workplace occasionally has lunch delivered for us. I'm not a huge chicken salad person, but they're pretty good.

Oh for some roast beef, pastrami, smoked turkey, sourdough....cheesesteak! Even Arby's!

Though we're not foodies, we have acknowledged that the U.S. has it made in that department.
Where be "down here"?

They aren't going to spit in your sandwich. That's worth a couple of bucks to me. They are also CLEAN and authentic.

PS - I have personally NOT found them to be more pricey, but that's in Ohio.
Where I live(Texas) most family owned shop's the cheapest thing on the menu is $10 they are places you take a date for lunch, not places you stop by every day.

And I notice that extra dollar or 2(kill's me when people say stuff like that), and I used to live in Akron for 5 years, the only thing cheaper than chains was Pizza places but burger joints and sandwich shops the chains were ALWAYS cheaper.

By the way, what do you call them Hoagies? PA calls them Hoagies, or is that specific to submarine sandwiches?

PA and south Jersey call them hoagies.


They are basically the same thing as subs.

I recall being mystified by the entire hoagie/sub/grinder lexicon.

Let's see, go in one day they have over ten different types of rolls to choose from. The next week there down to four, then two.

Then ordering is a whole other story. IE:

You order a chicken/bacon sub or whatever. It came with bacon pieces, which is fine. I also like bacon slices, so I ask to have a few added.

I get a look of confusion from the employee. Like I'm asking them something hard. I tell them I know it will cost extra, etc.
