Don't desperate to find a Jimmy John's near you: this supposedly gourmet sandwich joint is a franchise. Their sandwiches are delicious and made fresh in less time you will have to read the menu. Gourmet might be a bit of a stretch, but they for sure have good sandwiches. First, what makes them real good is their bread that is apparently made daily: this is a fantastic bread and, as you know 50% of a success of the sandwich is the bread. The rest of the ingredients is also apparently fresh. For instance, they make daily their tuna salad.
For my first time there, I decided to get the #9, The Italian Night Club, made with Genoa salami, Capicola, smoked ham, tomato, provolone cheese, onions, iceberg lettuce (a bit too much of it), mayonnaise and housemate Italian vinaigrette.
Jodi went for the #13, The Gourmet Veggie Club. This vegetarian sandwich is made with double provolone, avocado spread, cucumber, lettuce, tomato and mayonnaise.
She also asked for a pickle that was fairly big.
These subs were really good (that bread...) and a good bang for the buck. If you crave a sandwich, skip Blimpie that is couple of blocks away and go to Jimmy John: you will not regret it. Well, I did not!
Enjoy (I did)!
