    Also what I will say about JJs is their bread is pretty good compared to many on this list. Particularly their sliced wheat.

    At a lot of sub chains you’re getting thawed bread out of the freezer.

    There is no worse feeling than driving through KS and stopping off I-70 and seeing the only food option being a Blimpees.

    The person who owns the company that picks up my trash may be a shit tier human being too, but as long as my trash keeps being picked up on time and there are no other issues, I'm going to keep paying them to pick up my trash....which, from time to time will have Jimmy Johns wrappers/bags in it.

    I like food waaaaay too much and there are waaaaaay too many shit tier humans.

    if the food was actually good, perhaps I could look past it. But imo, it’s not.

    Yea if it's the same article I read Monday, the headline is kind of misleading. Was basically non conclusive likely because it was covered in mayo, scraped off a sandwich, frozen and then sent across the country.

    It did mention that inside edition ran tests and they found tuna.

    Swai is illegal in Alabama and Mississippi. Alabama also has a law that any restaurant or store selling fish has to tell you its origin. It’s probably tuna, but highly processed.

    I've kinda always assumed that canned tuna or tuna you get from a sub shop is like half by-catch fish. Don't even care.

    I'm still going with Jersey Mike's > Firehouse. McAlister's better than both but can't be included since they just do sandwiches, not subs.

    Jimmy John’s is like pickles or cilantro. People who despise it have really strong opinions about it.
