“a squeaky-clean, extra-friendly, freaky-fast place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2012

Who dat say dey own this Jimmy John's franchise? None other than Saints quarterback Drew Brees. His leadership and team-focused work on the football field transfers gracefully to the restaurant business. Recently during a recent visit to his JJ franchise, he offered $1 sandwiches to all those who showed up following his tweet announcing he would be popping in there. Classy move, as always, Drew!

This is a squeaky-clean, extra-friendly, freaky-fast place whose main offering is a traditional sub. The sandwich meats and condiments are all good, but be sure to ask in advance for your sandwich on their delicious whole grain sliced bread; this will drastically improve the quality of your sandwich over their spongy sub bread. Do ask for avocado spread and alfalfa sporuts on your ham sandwich, if that's what you like. There is a shortage of side dishes; pickles and potato chips are available, but the pickles aren't very good, so don't order one, whether you like pickles or not.

Dine in, drive through, and delivery are all good options.
