Anyone who raves about Jimmy John’s apparently has never eaten a sub anywhere else![V][V]
Growing up in eastern Iowa and then spending eight years in Kansas City, I loved Jimmy John’s. Their Italian Night Club was my favorite, and I loved getting a loaf of their leftover bread for pennies. I considered them to be far better than Subway or Quizno’s, and on-par with Firehouse.
After living in Connecticut for a couple of years, though, my standards have changed. This state knows how to do sandwiches, and even the biggest regional chain (Nardelli’s, as far as I can tell) puts out stuff that easily kicks JJ’s to the curb. There’s just no comparison; sandwiches, especially the Italian kind with lots of cured salty meats, are a tradition here and it shows.
