Noisy inside but good

Very fast and can customize a sandwich easily. Noisy inside with the music blaring. Fresh though. Sells day old bread which is nice to take home for sandwiches.

Easy fast excellent taste and reasonable cost. No more Subway for me ( Haven't been there for Years) since Jimmy John's came to town.

My husband was having his staff meeting at Easter Seals Camp Sunnyside, they where in the midst of it when someone suggested ordering from Jimmy Johns. Much to their surprise the driver would not drive into the Camp, but made one of the Easter Seals employes come out to the mail box (a good 1/4 mile up a long drive)... More

Love Jimmy John's, but the Ankeny location has 70's drug culture music playing at about 85-90 decibels every time I walk in. Most of the male workers look like they just got released from a drug rehab center. Good food, great quality, but take it to go.

This was a good choice for lunch. We had a very friendly welcome and the cashier was helpful in making our choice. This place is basically a place for cold cut sandwiches, there were no options for heated subs or club sandwiches. It had a cosy atmosphere but the music was a little too loud.

I am going to disagree with the previous review. Sure there are more choices at subway, but Jimmy John's subs are tastier, and their meat is better in my opinion. The reason I rated this location highly, is that there is a friendly attitude at this location by the staff. They are quick and courteous. They have done a good... More

Jimmy John's just hasn't lived up to Subway's quality and taste; I've tried it several times and have gone back to Subway. The sandwiches are cold and meat not very tasty. The employees were not friendly at all; they actually were rushed and a bit rude.

You had better like cold sandwiches (which I do) because they don't heat anything here. My wife, on the other hand, does not like her sandwiches cold so this review is for me only. I really like the Italian sub sandwich -- but without the mayo -- I'm reminded of subs in the northeast.

Jimmy John's is a great alternative to other national sub chains. The bread is different - and I think better - and the value is great. Try a skinny sub and Thin Chips to have a nice lo-cal meal. A must-do for sub lovers.
