Subways used to be a great lunchtime place for me whenever or where ever. i say used to because there isnt one near my new work place :(.
This will be a review about subway in general and not a specific one. I have been a fan of subway for many years now. I remeber having it for the first time thinking where the hell have you been all my life? It was truly amazing.
Well first off the outside. You can always tell when there is a subway due to it green background and white and yellow writing. You can spot one miles away. If you cant see it you can always smell it too as the smell of the subway usually drifts out of the shop and on to the road. i have been guilty of this and saying ' hmmmm subways' which usually was received with a weird look from my girlfriend or mates (remind me not to do that again!).
When you enter you will be greeted but a seating area. Due to the size of the subways i have been the most it could seat would be about 15 people. Then usually near the end corner of the shop you will see the counter and menu.
First things first one has to decide what size sub one wants. there are only 2 sizes, 6 inch or the daddy footlong. I being the person i am will go full out for a footlong :D. If your going to do it, do it properly i say! Once size is sorted you then pick which sandwich filling you want. Now and again they will do special flavours like reggae reggae chicken subs etc but the main ones are:
Chicken and Bacon Raunch
Steak and cheese
Sweet Onion Chicken Teriyaki (Low fat)
Veggie Delite (Low Fat)
There are also beef, chicken breast, ham, the subway club, turkey breast aswell but i dont really get them as they seem a little plain to me. These are also low in fat. I usuallt go for either a steak and cheese or the sweet onion teriyaki if i want to feel good lol.
once you have found what size and what sub you want you can then order. First off you can pick what type of bread you want for your sub. you dont get that in your local bakery!. The bread selections are:
Italian Herb and cheese
Wheat with ahoney and cheese.
My favourite is the hearty italian.
When you have ordered you bread size and filling, you are then asked if you want it toasted and with cheese on it too. I always go for that option. They will toast it for about 40secs, then when done They take it out and handed over to the next person who deals with the salads.
This is probably where subway makes it there own from any other sandwich making place. You can have pretty much anything you want in it and you pick it, not them! I tend to go for olives, lettuce, jalapenos, sweetcorn, peppers, onions. they are many more salads but these are mine. when thats done you can then choose if you want sauce in your sub to. Flavours are:
Hot (Brown) Mustard
Buffalo Sauce (some stores)
Red wine vinegarette
(help from yahoo)
being very health conscious i choose the lite mayo. When thats done they cut the sub, wrap it up and there you have it, your tailor made sub.
If you fell greedy you can get a drink, cookie and a packet of crisp too but i tend to just go with the footlong, got to look after oneself! The cookies are realllllllllllllllly nice by the way.
Now they also do wraps and salads to but because i havent tried one of these i can not really give you a proper review on it. All i can say is the pictures look nice.
They also have got a nice breaffast sub menu too but again i tend to leave the breakfast for the kitchen then subway so cant review on that to. sorry guys.
Prices for the subs vary and everyday they have the sub of the day where a specific sub is only £1.99. This my friends is for the 6inch, so put your cost back and sit down! If you want a footlong you will usually pay £2 more. They also do a meal deal which is a 6inch, drink, cookie or crisp for about £5 i think which is ok but may be on the expensive side for most just for a lunch.
Overall this place is pretty good, the food is always amazing, i never leave there unsatisfied. The prices may be abit steep for some if you go for a footlong but i can guarantee you will leave full. The staff are very friendly and also quick. they may be abit stingy or the salads but a gentle more please always works.
Now and again look out for little booklets for subways. They have great deals in there which make going subway even more better. go, feel unique and full my people!!
Summary: Your sub, your WAY!
