Subbin' Sandwiches Since 1975

The great veggie sandwich is somewhat hard to come by these days, with dressings soaking the buns and resorting to the "fat free" versions without much taste and with hand-fed home-grown cow meat being marketed to be ever so tasty to meat eaters- those lunch sandwiches are much more popular. Sometimes a sammie can be so good, you don't notice the rooftop of your mouth being scraped bare by the dried bread soaked in sauce. But, for human herbivores out there, a simple lettuce and cheese sub won't do.

Enter the Vegetarian at The Sub Shop. A-M-A-Z-I-N-G bread! They never freeze the dough, it's made from scratch, and its the softest, chewiest, wheat bread. This impresses me- especially being a fan of Sara Lee's numerous wheat breads. Yum-yum! So their signature vegetarian sub has olives, onions, mushrooms, green peppers, swiss cheese, american cheese, mozzarella cheese, tomato, and some mayo thrown on. That's 3 different cheeses, and 5 veggies, on your delish bread. For the extra vegan touch, they can withhold the cheese, and add some kraut. Since my first ever veggie sam was this week, the vegan choice will be my next. And it will be soon!

If you happen to eat meat, you will be pleased to know they make meatballs as well. One interesting combo that still has me confused is a grilled cheese sub with pizza sauce. More research must be done to figure out if there's any meaty substances in the pizza sauce, because it could, maybe, possibly be a yummy combo. It might be better to try it out at home first though... So, even if you're extra hungry, there's a half foot, whole foot, and two-footer sized options for your appetite on the menu. They come wrapped completely in foil to keep them toasty for your taste buds. My vegetarian taste buds are quite pleased, and a selling point was that their Vegetarian sub won Best of 2008 by Columbia.
