Fresh sandwiches, good bread but poor parking

I have eaten a lot at Planet Sub. Overall I have not been disappointed in the sandwiches. If anything they might be a little over priced but I can't complain because I am always full after eating there. My only complaint is the parking issue. That is one reason that keeps me from eating there... read more

I ordered a greek wrap for about $6. For the cost, the size and taste were outstanding! I was so satisfied after. It was made well. Definitely give this place a try before going to Subway or any other related chain around. They do a good job :)

They offer a wide variety of subs including numerous vegetarian options. Veggie subs at these sub shops are often very anemic basically being bread with cheese and lettuce. Not at Planet Sub. The tempeh parmesan was great. They use playing cards to identify the order ready which avoids names having to be given out and called. Efficient at getting the... More

I was looking for a Subway and found this place first. Glad I did. I'll be back If you are looking for a quick lunch and usually just drop into a Subway you will love this place.

I have been eating Plant Sub (Yellow Sub in Lawrence) since 1988 on a regular basis. The ingredients are fresh, bread is fresh, and I love a good baked sub. My favorite is the "Planet Sub" with double meat. It is a meal.

I have been going to Planet Sub (or Yello Sub) for years. Love the great creative combos on their toasted sandwiches. Bread for the bun is thick but not too much. Good valve.

Similar, of course, to Subway and others of that style, but with a better range of options without a bunch of upcharges.

Planet Sub is a sandwich shop in the same league as Subway, Goodcents, Quiznos' and Firehouse Subs. Clever sandwich names, accessible pricing. You could do worse.

This is our default sub shop when we're looking for a quick bite. Our fave is the 75th and Wornall location because it's close to home. The southwest chicken sub is deilcious, but so are all of their subs. The bread makes the difference!

What's not to like? This is the chain based off the original Yellow Sub in Lawrence. The sandwiches are to die for - warm and crunchy wheaty goodness surrounding quality meats and toppings... The only bad thing is deciding which sandwich to get it. I usually call ahead because as they say it is NOT fast food and can take... More
