Jimmy John’s has been a favorite in Charleston, IL. since 1983 and only recently began surfacing in the Washington area giving out free smells and winning over sandwich lovers everywhere.
Jimmy John is a straight to the point type of restaurant. The menu contains 17 combinations of sandwiches that are made in seconds on their specialty french bread.
Of course you can modify any sandwich to your liking but it’s always nice to taste the tried and true recipe at least once. Sandwich choices include many meat options so, let your hunger level and your meat preference make the decision for you.
If you’re interested in a classic and simple sandwich try the Turkey Tom: turkey breast, lettuce, tomato, cucumber and mayo; it's a classic. Interested in a more textured, complex taste? Go with the Italian Night Club: double meat on seven grain bread genoa salami, Italian capicola, smoked ham, provolone cheese with lettuce, tomato, onion, mayo and Italian vinaigrette.
If you want to go meatless there’s the eight inch vegetarian with layers of provolone cheese, avocado spread, sliced cucumber, lettuce, tomato and mayo; also a healthy choice.
If you’re opting for a low calorie option of your favorite sub you should go with the JJ unwich, which is any of the sandwiches on the menu wrapped in lettuce. If you must have the homemade french bread try a plain slim which is one dollar less than the eight inch sub and doesn’t include the veggies or any of the sauces. If you must have an accompaniment go with the thinny chips, they don’t taste much different than the real thing.
As you know, a sub isn’t a sub without a pickle so make sure to add it to your meal along with an oatmeal raisin cookie or a chocolate chunk cookie for an extra $1.25.Sandwiches range from $4.25 to $6.25 with only one at $8.25.
Jimmy John’s restaurant appeals to the appetite that is searching for classic, quick and quality. You might pick one of these up on your way to the beach for a picnic, for a quick lunch break or to hurry and scarf down before going home because your spouse is making that one dish again.
