    Here in South Carolina Firehouse Subs are very good, however it is hard to best the subs our local Publix market makes.

    Local places are usually the best.

    As a former sandwich artist for over three years, it took another four years before I could eat there again.

    Matt & Tony's was the best

    When I was young in North Hollywood CA on Victory Boulevard there was Matt & Tony's. Sesame Seeded Italian Bread, hard on the out side. The Topping were Dill Pickles, Onion, and Crushed or Chopped Tomatoes. There Italian Cold Cuts Special was the best, and there was MEAT on the Sandwich. No need to ask for Double or Extra Meat.

    The Choice were 3 or 4 different sandwiches, and whole or Half load. YUM.

    Was sandwich artist the actual job title? That's pretty funny.

    Yeah, I ate at subway too much in college and I don't really like it much anymore.

    I like Quiznos more than Subway, but go to subway more frequently due to availability. I went to Blimpie couple times many years ago. I do not like this place. `

    Another vote for Firehouse or any place that uses REAL meat VS turkey based, flavored to taste like whatever "meat".

    I like Firehouse subs. Quiznos is good, not great, they seem to be closing here.

    I tried Jersey Mike's over the weekend, I'm not too impressed. It tastes better than Subway.

    Subway seems pretty middle of the road. Most of the time you get better subs from a Grocery store.

    Blimpie is pretty nice, but they've gotten a bit too fancy. I liked them a while back when they just made you a nice sub with good meat.

    On a related note, I have wondered: How many sandwiches (hero and otherwise) are made, total, every day, in the USA alone? It would have to be in the millions?

    I feel like Subway is that girl I used to date before I moved up to classier women.

    Fontano's off of Taylor street in Chicago. The magic is the melding of Turano bread, gardinara and ham salami and provalone.

    Brian,

    Did you get a chance to try the King's Hawaiian Pulled Pork Sandwich from earlier this year? It was a limited thing, but I was visiting Firehouse once week to get one.

    I haven't been on here in forever but I'll put my $0.02 in. As far as major chains go
    Subway: is like my mcdonalds no matter where I'm at for work big city or small town, I can usually find one and get decent food just pay a little extra for more meat
    Jimmy Johns: Awesome delivery service when I lived inside a delivery zone. But the same thing pay for the little extra meat on certain ones or add bacon to the beach club (freaken amazing)
    firehouse: get to one once in a while but they're pretty good.

    Mom and pop places if you're ever in CO try to go to Comminiello Meats in Westminster small italian deli with low priced sandwiches that taste amazing, South Philly Cheesesteak in Arvada get extra cheese on theirs you'll thank me later, another place was Oscars kabobs and gyros Great sausage sandwiches but they closed due to highway expansion

    I like Quiznos best for chains, but there are Subways everywhere so I go there more often. I heard the Subway franchise is the bargin of the franchise world, so that would explain why every corner has one. I live on an acreage outside the city, the gas station in the small town up the highway has a Subway even. So if I'm needing a fast meal when the wife is not home I usually pop in there on the way home. I'm not a huge fan of either soup or sandwhiches, during my teenage year my parents ran a soup and sandwhich place, so I've had my share

    Just tried a new place here today with the wife called Pepperjax Grill. Best Philly steak sandwich I've had since I was in the Philly area for work during summer of 2012.

    My experience has been the opposite, with Jersey Mike's beating Subway most of the time. I may have to check out some of those other places you listed.
