The colorfully named sub shop we talked about last month is now open for business just a few doors south of the post office on 23rd.
I went in yesterday and gave it a try, and overall had a good experience. Think of it as a locally owned Subway, without all the corporate flavor-of-the-month marketing stuff. For example, you’re not going to get a choice of fancy bread, which is OK with me since I just get white anyway. And they’re still working through some kinks in their supply chain, as they were out of pickles and mayo when I was there. You might also encounter an employee who isn’t a native speaker of english – be prepared to practice your non-verbal communication skills.
But the roast beef sub with cheese, lettuce, and jalapeanos I had was good, and exactly what you would expect from a sandwich shop.
It takes a bold business person to make a go of anything in that block. If you have a hankering for a sub sandwich, consider giving them a try instead of going to Subway or Quiznos. And once you do, give us all your honest review in the business directory.
