Jimmy John's

The praise I've heard heaped upon this place is unbelievable. With all the excitement I encountered about the opening of Jimmy John's a few months back, you'd have thought Jacksonville was getting its first In-N-Out Burger. So what's all the fuss and buzz about?

Subs and sandwiches.
Just plain old subs and sandwiches?
Well, not quite...
Extraordinary subs and sandwiches?
Again, not quite...

Jimmy John's has some particularly good subs and sandwiches. There's no one thing to point to. It's evident upon first bite that the quality of the ingredients used is higher than your typical sub shop; fresh veggies, good meat in great quantity, and nice, fresh bread. Hey, a lot of the subs and sandwiches have alfalfa sprouts on them which, despite their mild toxicity, take a sandwich to a whole new level of deliciousness.

I guess some of the excitement is warranted. If you've lived with and loved Jimmy John's elsewhere then the loss upon relocation to Jacksonville must have been profound. As for myself, the most exciting discovery I've made is that they deliver and, being just down the street from my office, this makes them the perfect choice for a lunch meeting when nobody can be sacrificed to go pick up the Chipotle order.
