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.

Love their food. The #1 with a pickle, or the Club Tuna. Their drivers are SO fast. When you order, whether on line or by phone- you really do NOT sit and wonder if they are going to show up.....they just do!

The subs here are average. The overstuff the sub with alf alfa sprouts so it doesnt taste that good. The peppers are good. Subs are kind of small also compared to subway and the prices are higher!
