I lived in the northeast for a long time and got used to eating Italian subs from authentic Italian delis. Of the sub shop chains in Houston, Jimmy John's comes closest to replicating that experience--good bread, good meats, and fresh condiments, including hot peppers. The Vito, with hot peppers, is a staple for me. The kids enjoy their subs too.

What a joke! I got vegetarian sandwich. Cheap bread, lots of shredded lettuce, about a teaspoon of guacamole (?) even I paid for extra, plastic cheese, cardboard tomatoes, nothing but mayo and mustard to choose for topping. This place is worse than subway and twice the price. Gourmet they are not. Checker gave me attitude when I asked if she added extra guacamole.
It's clean and music is hip but they're ripping these kids off.
I went to one at bunker Hill but I'm sure they all have the same crappy pre packaged food.

Gourmet they are not!

If you've eaten at Jimmy John's before or not, their motto is "Subs so fast you freak!" Expect loud music, subs, fountain drinks and chips. A large dill is the optional side.

The subs are often on fresh baked french bread or square wheat. This particular location was very clean, the staff was quite friendly for your typical "fast food" in this area, and the store was not very busy at all at 7:30 p.m. on a Tuesday. All was well and the food was up to JJ's standards.

Great straight sandwich shop. Uses the best bread and meats for a great sandwich. I like the Vito. They have several locations and are on main avenues so they are easy to find.

These are great sandwiches. I keep trying something different each time and they are all great. Plus the service is so much better than Subway.
