Nah, it's a midwest thing. It's HUGE in Illinois. I think it all originated in Charleston, Illinois. It's quite the sandwich. They tear the middle out of the bread. Sounds weird, heh? It's quite good though.

The Togo's here in Champaign is so funny. It's ran by a bunch of non English speaking Indians. The drive-thru is actually a recording of a white guy talking...so you're like, "yeahhh..." and then they don't understand a word you say, and your order is always ****ed up...so I tend to stay away.

Sonic used to be famous only in Texas. However, it's spread around quite a bit. Maybe Jimmy John's will do the same?

No, no, no, Bryant's is in a really bad neighborhood, 17th and Brooklyn. It is about 5 blocks south of old Municipal Stadium where the longest NFL game ever was played. Chiefs v.Dolphins on Christmas Day. Bryant's got famous because "Old Munis" as we called it had no parking. The neighborhood is entirely black and us honkies had to pay 50 cents to park in their yards. But as we walked up Brooklyn Ave, we smelled that heavenly smoke that Arthur Bryant produced. So today, if you go to Bryant's at the noon hour you will wait in a line clear out the door. And it is nothing but rich white dudes with their knockout "secretaries" in line in front of you. It is the best restaurant in the world. Calvin Trillin of the New York Daily News named it that.

Skip's so yesterday.

You don't have to go to Brooklyn Ave anymore. They built one out by the Speedway in Wyandotte County.
Atmosphere is much different, but the food is still Bryant's.

There is a difference. I can taste it. Plus they don't give you near as many fries, and they charge you a quarter for every extra slice of bread you want.

I don't know about that. Subway uses pre-packaged meats and their staff are always scum of the earth. Goodcents slices their meats fresh, but they only put a couple ounces of meat on the sandwich itself. JJ's has pretty good bread IMO, the best of the 3. Too much lettuce on the sandwiches though.

I like Jersey Mike's (a bit pricey), or Planet Sub (Yello Sub in Lawrence).

JJ's is too expensive for the amount of sub you are getting IMO though.

Best meats - Goody's
Best bread - Subway
Better combination subs - JJ's
Best for your buck - Goody's (unless its Tuesday, then Subway wins hands down).

White/Wheat
Roast Beef/Turkey/Ham
Lettuce/Tomato/Onion

But their 'basics' are always top notch.

No asiago stone-gound chipotle coulis, just basic good subs.

It is still very good, but just a little different. The fries aren't as greasy, the meat tastes a tad different (perhaps from a different pit?), and you don't slide across the floor of the bathroom when you are trying to take a piss.

Also the line doesn't move as quickly because the staff there aren't nearly as rude as they are at the original. If you don't submit your order in a timely manner at the original the staff yells at you.

"WHAT YOU EATIN?" "WHAT YOU DRINKIN?" "FRIES?"

It's all those things that make it Bryant's. After Arthur died the new mgt. cleaned it up and nearly ruined it.

When it comes to burgers, you can't beat In-and-Out.

As far as subs go, my favorite chain is Quiznos and my favorite "hole-in-the-wall" place is Yellow Sub in Lawrence.

Quizno's is awful. I don't even consider that a sub place. It's more like Schlotzky's. They put SALAD DRESSING on their sandwiches, that's just wrong, and disgusting.

FWIW, "Yello Sub" is not a hole-in-the-wall. It's a regional chain now, with locations in Colorado, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Missouri, and quite a few in Kansas, including several in Wichita, KC, and 1 in Topeka, and Manhattan. They are called "Planet Sub", though. Very good subs.

I'll have to disagree. Jimmy John's is as bland as a sub comes. I'll never go there again, b/c there's so many other good choices on campus corner. Moe's, Pita Pit, and even Mr. Goodcent's

The way I see it, every sub shop is different enough that they don't compare. Sometimes I'm in the mood for Subway, and nothing else will cut it. Other times it's a JJs, or maybe Blimpie. They just make different enough sandwiches that I don't think they are interchangeable.

Quizno's has one good sub, the Classic Italian. Jimmy John's I can crave, but I get sick of it real easy. Goodcents is good, but it reminds me too much of that shit shop Blimpie's. Subway I can never get sick of.

I go in sub phases. Right now I'm in my Subway phase.

I live on campus, so most Subway workers are U of I students, so the quality isn't as 'white-trashy' as a lot of Subway's in the city.

I completely agree with you guys, AB's is the best BBQ I've ever had, and I've been to the one at Ameristar(wasn't the same). The only thing is I wish they opened earlier on Sundays, because the only times we get it before Chiefs games are 3 PM starts or night games. Had it on Opening day for the Royals this yr, Beef and Frie= heaven.

just might have to go before tonights game.. :hmmm:
