    Can not believe the love for firehouse subs. They're always damp and feel like a huge ass dog or dogs have been breathing on them for like twenty minutes.

    I voted for Firehouse.

    Honorably mention is Schlotzskys. I haven't eaten at one in years, though.

    Made me check their locations. Craving Quzinos all of a sudden. There is one in Jamestown, ND which is about 100 miles from Fargo. Will definitely keep it in mind next time I head west.

    There are 3 Quiznos and a blimpie near me. All about 20 minutes from where I live, nowhere near anywhere I need to go regularly. Some day I’ll stop by.

    Similar places to subway are "scooping up shit around the trash can that didn't quite make it in" and "rat piss covered rice cakes". But yeah Quiznos' price point definitely hurt them.

    We are same. From the list, near me, it is Jersey Mike > Jimmy John's > Firehouse >>>>>>>>>>>>>> Subway.
    I had Firehouse twice, and both times the bread was quite moist and oddly sweet.

    Locally, It's Dibella's or Wegman's subs.

    My old workplace had a delivery service partner site that had different places each day. Firehouse was on there once every few weeks and no matter what you ordered it came unheated. Sauces were in packets. Must be a QC issue.

    Firehouse is one of those eat in [your car during covid] or skip it kind of places. The good life of a prepared sandwich is very short.

    I feel like you’re in Des Moines, which for me is a two hour drive. Because I’ve made that drive before for a Quiznos sandwich and usually make it to get pancheros. So one hour drive is nothing, go get a sandwich goose.

    Original Italian from Jersey Mikes on the rosemary parm bread Mike’s way. Buy a bag of lays and put all the broken pieces on the sandwich for a little crunch... simply the best.

    I worked at Pickleman’s (semi regional sub chain) when I was at Mizzou. The guy that started that chain in Columbia was the former JJ’s CFO who hated the owner so much he basically started picklemans as a “fuck you” to him IIRC.
