I've eaten at Jimmy John's--last summer in Lexington, KY. They are really good.

I don't get it. I was pretty underwhelmed when I checked out the new Jimmy Johns on Austin Hwy. Kinda like Potbelly sandwiches (also out of Chicago) - basic, ok food but nothing special.

And on Louis Pasteur there's a much better sandwich shop - Sandwich de Paris.

I stopped in the Jimmy John's when it opened, and was underwhelmed. I'll stick with Sandwich de Paris.

My DH and I both love Jimmy John's, but my father was nonplussed when he tried it - couldn't understand why we like it so much. I know one reason we enjoy it is the bread - it's not the mushy, bland bread like at Subway (I know they have all of the "special" breads now, but they still seem a bit less than special) or similar places. I think it also depends on what you order, plus the prices are reasonable. My husband and I have our favorites (me-Vito; him-the one that's like the Vito but has double of everything) and we do not veer from them.
We have only been to the one on Austin Highway and it is much smaller than others we frequented where we lived previously. They are usually small (and ALWAYS packed), but this one seems smaller still.

Have never of Sandwich de Paris - we may have to try that.

Sandwich de Paris is not a chain, as far as I know that's it's only location. They use real (crusty on the outside, soft on the inside) french bread. The owner is always there (at least I think that's him), and there's another family that works there.

I always order the Veggie Melt. I've had a few others but I really like that and prefer to not have meat (only on sandwiches, I'm not a vegetarian), so I stick with it.

Sandwich + soup or salad + drink = ~6.50.

Did I already mention Bubblehead? (This thread is too long to go back, apologies if I'm repeating myself). It's a new Bubble tea and hookah place, and they do some Thai food as well, though it's not a restaurant. The teas are served with (or without) tapioca pearls and it's not like 'tea' but more like fruit drinks or smoothies. It's sort of an Art bar in the Southtown district on S. Presa, across from Taco Haven. I highly recommend it. The two couples who run it are wonderful.

Not a new place but they have great Thai & Chinese food. Asia Kitchen @ West Pond & SW Loop 410 (across the street from the old K-Mart). I've eaten there for years and have never been disappointed.

New Orleans Seafood and Soul Food on S O'Conner Rd going toward Converse is in the top 10 new restaurant in SA. I would put this any hotel or fining dining restaurant in the city.

I wish my Hispanic brother and sister would try to venture out of just eating Mexican food or the traditional Chinese food and try other ethnic restaurants

Here I am quoting myself (been a long-g-g day). Dropped by the place, only a couple of workmen there. The building is being remodeled and it appears that it's going to be at least 30 days or more before it's open. That is all.

I also highly recommend Bubblehead. The couples are wonderful!
