It’s not everyday that a top notch celebrity or athlete endorses their favorite place to get a sandwich. Well, Chase Daniel did just that today and boldly proclaimed that he’s a Quizno’s Guy.
Bold move, Chase. I’m not sure I agree with you, but I respect you making a bold statement.
I have been traveling out on the East Coast over the last few weeks and my Turkey Sandwich options have been limited. I don’t do Subway, so Quizno’s has turned out to be the next best thing.
You’ve probably been seeing their TV commercials for their $4 Torpedo and wondering when I am going to weigh in on this concept. Well, I am here to clear the air and let you know if you can eat a Torpedo.
The answer is: yes.
Quizno’s Torpedo is actually pretty good. I like the bread better than their regular sandwiches and at $4 they’re a pretty good deal. My only advice is to tell them to run it thru the toaster twice. My sources tell me that Quizno’s has shortened their toasting time considerably over the last few years so that they can pump the sandwiches out faster. Tell them to toast it twice and to keep their mouth shut.
I was absolutely starving at lunch yesterday (as I am now) and had my mind stuck on Jersey Mike’s Subs. I’ve been there before and they make a nice Turkey Sandwich. I especially like the vinegar, oil and seasonings they throw on there or as they call it “Mike’s Way”.
But here’s my bitch with this place: their regular sized sandwich seemed really small to me. I wasn’t ready to commit to big giant sandwich, but the medium didn’t seem to cut it for me either.
In other news, I didn’t eat breakfast this morning and I was starving as an 11:00am meeting was approaching. There was NO WAY I was going to make it through this meeting on an empty stomach, so I hustled down to Quizno’s. I enjoyed their Sammies on my last trip there, but they wouldn’t give me enough substance. So I asked the burning question that is on everyone’s mind: Can you get the Sonoma Turkey as a sandwich instead of a Sammie? And the answer is YES. And that’s what I did.
My complaint for this visit is that I ordered a salad as my side and they gave me hardly any lettuce, but a shitload of salad dressing. Makes no sense.
