Health-conscious fast-food, including Italian hoagies and salads, keeps sub lovers satisfied. – In Short
Founded in 1964 in Hoboken, New Jersey, this sandwich joint has grown into a nationwide restaurant chain. The generously sized subs are modeled on the balloon-like shape of a blimp, which also inspired this chain's name. Famed for its Italian bread and sliced meats, the restaurant offers signature sandwiches, including the Durango Roast Beef, the Baja Turkey and Cheese and the Tuscan Ham and Swiss. Look for grilled panini, wraps, soups and a special kid-sized sub.
Skimpy Chumps – I was getting a free 6 inch sub from a Sonics Promotion.
They said I could only get ham or turkey. I don't eat ham or turkey. They said that most other people like that. I said I'm not most people.
So I asked for a sandwich with no meat. IT challenged their paradigm but they went ahead.
The guy putting the vegetables on the sandwich was so chincy, I couldn't believe it. I had to ask for more of every thing. HE sprinkled the lettuce on there like it was truffles.
The sandwich ended up tasting good due to quality ingredients (except for that bitter taste in the back of my mouth).
