    Potbelly and Which Wich have better variety, but if you're looking for your standard turkey sub, it's hard to beat Jersey Mike's quality and consistency.

    Of that list I'll take Jersey Mike's or Potbelly, depending on what I'm looking for at the time.

    Favorite cold sub chain is Cousins, but that really only exists in Wisconsin and a few places in IL/IN, I think.

    I like going to Which Wich and getting overwhelmed with options, picking a bunch of different toppings and dressings with no regard to how they complement each other, and receiving a truly disgusting abomination of a sandwich. I have only myself to blame.

    lived in Florence in middle school and definitely went to Palmetto Subs but never made that connection. Used to be beside an ice cream place if memory serves.

    It's wild because they were fairly ubiquitous in NC and then within like 6 months you couldn't find one.

    They have them here but if I want a sub I go to a local spot like Antone’s. Never saw one when I was in Arkansas so always went to firehouse, green submarine or loafin Joe’s

    Chose Firehouse...Jersey Mike's is good too, just prefer Firehouse. Have not had Penn Station.

    Also hot take is I don't mind Subway at all but they did eliminate roast beef from their menu so that's fucking dumb.

    There was a Which Wich in Lincoln I used to love going to when I lived close to it. Just looked it up and it was killed by the pandemic. Kinda sad about that

    I’m a firm believer that hot and cold subs should be evaluated separately.

    As such it’s Penn Station and Jersey Mike’s, respectively.

    Potbelly’s hot peppers/giardiniera merit special consideration.

    Firehouse and Jersey Mike’s of the options closest to me.

    Will eat Subway without hesitation though. I still remember the good old days before they sold out for mass expansion.

    Jersey Mikes for hot and cold for me. The Italian and Philly are amazing. Absurdly expensive though.

    Publix is good and far cheaper. I grab it about half the time.
