Quizno’s (CLOSED)

I couldn't make this look good, so I opted for the open-face look.

Today I ordered Quizno’s for lunch. Quizno’s, a sub shop can be found just about anywhere in the country. Apparently in El Segundo, California, they have delivery and it’s quite fast. It had been a few days since I had some (good) red meat, so I ordered the Prime Rib and Peppercorn. On top of the prime rib, the sandwich comes with mozzarella cheese, sauteed onions and a mild peppercorn sauce. I made sure to get mine without the dastardly onions.

I’ve had Quizno’s before and it has never been spectacular, so when my sandwich arrived, my expectations were pretty low. Somehow the sub managed to fall below my expectations. The most important part of the sub, the prime rib, was tough and chewy. It took me longer to get through the sandwich than it took for the delivery guy to bring it to me.

When I finally finished, I was full, but unhappy. I then proceeded to spend the next few hours picking the tough ribs out of my teeth. Typically Quizno’s does a good job as a fast food sandwich shop, but chose the wrong day to mess up my sub. I’d recommend the place only if you really need of a quick sandwich, otherwise it’s better to wait until you get home and can make one yourself.

[EDIT: This location is closed, but I mean all Quizno’s are equally bad/good, right?]
