I don't think they have them in KC yet, but Heidi's Brooklyn Deli makes some great sandwiches and is starting to spread across the country.

Of course, everyone will have a favorite independent deli, some of mine in KC are:

New York Bakery and Deli at Gregory and Troost - best damn reuben evah!!!1

Accurso's Main Street Deli at 51st and Main

... and the long gone George's sandwich shop that used to be at 46th and Main (or thereabouts).

We had a Schlotskies are a few years ago and I loved it. They were always busy but somehow they went out of business. There have been 3 or 4 more restaurants in that building since and each one has gone under, even though it's on the main drag and in a good spot. There's another restaurant that isn't a chain in there now. I give 'em six months.

Maybe the place is haunted... or cursed.

"Culver's" is a good eats place up North here; but I'm convinced they purposely "over-price" their menu to keep out the riff-raff...and trailer park trash. It's good; but not THAT good. Heh.

I know the guys who franchised in Wichita, KS and they are making a killing. They started with 1 and within the first 12-18 months built another 2-3 stores. They have since looked into the STL franchise rights (which some bastard apparently owns but isn't utilizing) and instead bought the Dallas area franchise rights.
I think Wichita was helped out by people knowing of the place from KC and Lawrence, but the place can survive on its food alone. Give it a go, what do you have to lose except tens of thousands of dollars?

Damn, can't believe the options here...it's like choosing McD's over a genuine hamburger.

What kills me too, is that Chartroose Caboose didn't get a single nod in this thread. One of the most under-rated philly sub places.

When I was in KC- it was always Planet Sub, Goodcents, or Chartroose for me. There was a place on Main St, just short of downtown KC, that made the absolute BEST meatball grinders ever. It was well worth the drive from the burbs. I also recall some NY Deli near the city market that made some great sandwiches, but the name evades me.

Honestly though, nothing compares to a couple of sandwich places here in Denver: Heidi's NY Deli and The Spicy Pickle. Both of these places rule!

As for Quizno's- they're okay. I don't always like my sandwiches toasted, but they do have a couple of good ones. Subway is still a very good sandwich, and reliable. I find myself going to Subway more often particularly now that they have a nice selection of sandwich breads to choose from.

The bread is everything to a sandwich, just like a pizza dough is everything to the pizza. At least Subway understood that and developed their bread.

The bread is everything to a sandwich, just like a pizza dough is everything to the pizza. At least Subway understood that and developed their bread.I think the contents are more important. I agree Subway has great bread, but the contents are lousy. Ever eat a prime rib sub from Quiznos?

Damn, can't believe the options here...it's like choosing McD's over a genuine hamburger.

What kills me too, is that Chartroose Caboose didn't get a single nod in this thread. One of the most under-rated philly sub places.

When I was in KC- it was always Planet Sub, Goodcents, or Chartroose for me. There was a place on Main St, just short of downtown KC, that made the absolute BEST meatball grinders ever. It was well worth the drive from the burbs. I also recall some NY Deli near the city market that made some great sandwiches, but the name evades me.

Honestly though, nothing compares to a couple of sandwich places here in Denver: Heidi's NY Deli and The Spicy Pickle. Both of these places rule!

As for Quizno's- they're okay. I don't always like my sandwiches toasted, but they do have a couple of good ones. Subway is still a very good sandwich, and reliable. I find myself going to Subway more often particularly now that they have a nice selection of sandwich breads to choose from.

The bread is everything to a sandwich, just like a pizza dough is everything to the pizza. At least Subway understood that and developed their bread.

Your opinion lost all credibility when you talked up Subway at the end and admitted going there more often than other places. Have you ever watched them make a sandwich? Peel back the cellophane for your pre-packaged toppings? :Lin: You might as well go buy some Carl Buddig. The only time I go to subway is when I'm traveling and it's the only option in a small town besides McDs and Wendy's.

Not to sway anyone away from Planet Sub, but this is why I can't eat there too much any more. Tubby Smith wouldn't be the only Tubby known in my household. And these are only for 1/2 sandwiches. I'm not sure how other subs compare calorie-wise, but this isn't better than eating a fast food meal.

For starters, I didn't say I go to Subway more often than others, I said, I find myself going there more often than in the past when they only served white/wheat bread. I'm merely commending a franchise for at least trying to keep ahead of the Joneses.

I go to Heidi's, Spicy Pickle, Fat Jack's, and Taste of Philly far more than I ever go to Subway. Subway is convenient food, like McD's is, as you mentioned- "only when you're traveling and you have no other options."

Every food critic knows that the dough is the primary ingredient in sandwiches and pizzas.

Yes, and Quizno's sucks. My beef w/Quizno's is most of the time, the bread is far too toasted, and in some cases, burnt.

I am absolutly addicted to Charlies Grilled Subs, their Philly Cheese Steak is to die for. I eat there at least twice a week and have only had something besides the Philly once.

If we get a sub, it is normally from Planet Sub.

Jeez, a six inch sandwich called The Veggie has 534 calories. Do they dip it in lard?

From today's USA Today Online:
Coyote makes sandwich run; stops at Chicago Quiznos

CHICAGO (AP) For one day, at least, the roadrunner was safe. It seems the coyote was hankering for another kind of fast food.

Employees and customers at a downtown Chicago Quiznos sandwich shop were stunned to see a coyote walk through the propped-open front door Tuesday afternoon and lie down in a cooler stocked with fruit juice and soda.

"It wasn't aggressive at all," restaurant manager Bina Patel told the Chicago Tribune. "It was just looking around."

Employees and customers calmly cleared out of the restaurant, though some took the time to finish their sandwiches and snap some cell-phone photos, the Chicago Sun-Times reported. Animal control officers took the passive coyote away after about 40 minutes, after a curious crowd had gathered outside.

"This one definitely I will definitely remember forever. A coyote in downtown Chicago," Quiznos employee Rick Torres told WLS-TV.

The city captures 10 to 15 coyotes every year, especially in the spring when they are most active, said Anne Kent, director of Chicago Animal Care and Control. Veterinarians will examine the coyote and, if he is not injured, release him into the wild.
