Jason would really like to give the local Jimmy John’s a lot of business. So would other people in his town, it sounds like. But because his closest store is a franchise, it’s not allowed to deliver to him. He can call for delivery from other area restaurants that are further away, but not the one four minutes from his house. Yes, of course he could go pick up his sandwiches, and he often does, but that’s not the point. Most of the time when we call for delivery, we could go get the food but choose not to because it would require removing snow from the car or changing out of pajamas or loading children into a vehicle.

No rational person expects fast food, or any restaurant meal, to look exactly like the promotional photos. There might be a passing resemblance, but they won’t look very much alike. Rachel had heard good things about sandwich chain Jimmy John’s from her friends, but they’re meat-eaters and she and her husband are vegetarians. But it’s not that hard to make a tasty sandwich without meat, right? The menu showed a nice sandwich packed with veggies and cheese, but what Rachel and Mr. Rachel got were sort of sad, mashed lettuce sandwiches. [More]
Richard was enjoying a sandwich at Jimmy John’s when he noticed something odd about a sign on the wall. The patriotic placard, meant to advertise that the sandwiches are “handmade in the U.S.A.,” doesn’t have an American flag on it. It is nice and patriotic-looking and all. It what looks like the flag of Liberia with an extra white stripe at the top, which Richard was told is a “stylized American flag.” [More]
Reader Jarrod wanted a plain (they call it a “Slim”) sub from Jimmy John’s with Dijon, rather than yellow, mustard. This is not allowed. These subs come with yellow mustard only. All customers requesting fancy mustard will apparently be told that there is none available, even if they are able to see it sitting there.

I recently went in to Jimmy John’s (http://www.jimmyjohns.com/) in downtown Indianapolis. While some might consider them YASC (Yet Another Sandwich Chain), my wife and I love them. Their #6 is one of the few vegetarian items at a fast-food place I can order without changing the order. It is a delectable sandwich, and quite affordable. I walked in a few weeks ago to pick up dinner, greeted by the familiar wafting bread smell, anxiously awaiting my precious #6.
