So I decided to see which sandwich shop is my favorite

I recently got on a kick where I wanted to try all of the sandwich shops in the area to find out which should be my go-to. Growing up, we only had Subway, so it was my standard. But, as I moved further south, I have discovered a whole bunch of others I had never been to. So, here's a quick post about my recent adventures.


This will forever be one of my favorites because it was one of the few fast food places in Wellsburg growing up, and $5 footlongs have a special place in my heart.

Jimmy Johns

Jimmy John's
As a poor journalist in downtown Charleston, Jimmy John's became a go-to. It is seriously freaky fast, so it makes for an easy lunch.

Sub SandwichesJersey Mikes
This sub shop was brand new to me until recently. I made a trek to Teays Valley just to try their Italian. Which, I must say, is pretty dang good.

Sub Sandwiches

Penn Station

I've only been to Penn Station 2 or 3 times. And, never to the ones in Charleston, so I decided to check out the Corridor G location. A pizza sub is a different option.

Sub SandwichesSteak Escape
I had never been to - or really heard of - a Steak Escape until recently. So I went to check it out on Corridor G. If you love Philly cheesesteaks, it might be one to check out.


Firehouse Subs
Firehouse Subs is probably my favorite hot sub shop. If I want a cold sub (which I tend to call hoagies), it might be Jimmy Johns. But hot subs - this place.

So I guess this place really isn't a sub shop, but I didn't know that. I learned quickly the thing to get here is wings, so I went for that (and some mac & cheese). They're OK.

Steak & Shake

Steak & ShakeSteak & ShakeSteak 'n Shake

I had heard of Steak 'n Shake's cult following, but there were never really any super close to where I've lived. I learned it's a sit-down restaurant, and they have pretty dang good burgers. I got one with mushrooms and truffle aioli, and it was fabulous. Not to mention parmesan fries and a s'mores milkshake. Heaven.

When I asked folks their favorite sub shop, I also got answers like: Potbelly, Primanti Brothers, Quiznos, Schlotzsky's, Which Which, Bellacino's, Pita Pit, and DiBellas. Which is your favorite?
