Don't bother – We've had more problems with this place then I care to remember. Problems with raw bloody chicken even after it was sent back a second time to drunken idiots passed out in the parking lot to no security what-so-ever. Thursdays are swingers night so be careful as you might get hit on by a creepy couple, if you enter a karaoke contest that promised a cash prize be prepared to receive a gift certificate instead when you win so you are forced to come in and order the food. Seriously, this place is terrible.
Great Subs! – Big Ten subs are the best in town! We go there before Gopher games and enjoy the food, atmosphere and staff. They offer a shuttle bus to Mariucci Arena which is great on the coldest of winter days. I would recommend Big Ten to anyone looking for a great sub at a good cost. Parking can be sticky at times, but it is on campus and ramps are in close proximity.
Awful service, and rude to boot – This is a place where I waited 20 minutes to get a sandwich in their fast pick up line, with NOBODY in front of me. The norm is usually ~5 mins, even on crowded days, so I conveyed my feedback to the server. She had no interest in listening, let alone apologizing. One of the other waitresses had the temerity to suggest leaving now that I had my sandwich. The manager was no better, and had no interest in hearing a complaint. If you want to deal with uncouth savages, by all means go here. If not, don't.
Enjoy a tasty sub while watching the Gophers on the tube. – In Short
This casual bar and eatery in the heart of Stadium Village is a popular U of M hangout, and a convivial place to grab a brewski after a Gophers basketball game or a movie at nearby Oak Street Cinema. Try the hot, grill-toasted sub sandwiches, tasty enough by themselves to draw back alumni who no longer live within miles of the University. Other specialties include spicy chicken wings, a build-your-own burger and house-made chili.
Subs are GREAT! – The Big Ten is a great place during any sort of sporting event... fun atmosphere and pretty casual. I've been there dozens of times but never had anything other than the subs... they're that good. The takeout side is pretty small and can get really crowded at meal rush times, but that's really the only con. Just be careful if you sit in one of the large booths... everyone at some point or another will knock their head on the back of it. Definitely more of a family atmosphere for games than a few other places nearby if you've got kids with you. 2-for-1s are great too!
