Our office is a few blocks away from here and we always order JJ for business lunches. We are so excited that they reopened but the delivery has been less than stellar. The order last week came with the drinks spilled all over the sandwich. They forgot one bag of chips and a drink. It was the guys first day... More

You can never go wrong with Jimmy John's. It's inexpensive, fast and undeniably fresh!! Popped in to grab some subs on our way out of town after visiting USC. You can't beat it.

I’m not sure why I’ve never reviewed Jimmy John’s before since I order from them quite often, at least once or twice a month. Although I’ve had just about everything on their menu (and all is pretty darn tasty), my absolute favorite is the Italian Night Club (on whole wheat) with the Jalapeño Jimmy Chips. Oh and I must also... More

The food here tastes like at any other Jimmy John's. When I need GOOD food quick, I would much rather go to a Jimmy John's than at a drive thru. This service at this JJ's was very friendly and quick.

This place has awesome speed and every sandwich I have ever tried there is delicious! I do wish they would offer a third option on bread, but that won't stop my regularly ordering from them. The website is very good and the delivery times are a s promised-amazing!

this is the kind of food that is filling and satisfying. It is not french quinine. But some of the best sub sandwiches money can buy!

Chewy, not too bready, just enough to hold the ingredients together. I tried the #12 Beach Club and subbed sprouts for lettuce...was so happy I could do that and glad to have a turkey, guacamole and sprout sub...hard to find. They are super fast and if you can get a parking spot it's nice to have a sub place that... More

Yet, the ads are correct. Well, there was no one else in there when I came in (early evening) which I thought odd since it is a college town. Still the staff was very good, helpful and slapped together a sub within a minute or so just the way I asked. The bread was soft and the meat fresh. Even... More

Bland, mediocre sandwiches. Forgettable sides. DiPrato's is LOTS LOTS better, so is the NoName, and frankly, Publix sandwiches are a lot better. I end up eating these a lot at lunch meetings, etc., and I don't understand why people order from them. And I really don't understand the great reviews.

When I saw the sign promising gourmet sandwiches I thought let's give it a try. Maybe the fact that I am from NJ and have grown accustomed to thick tasty foot long sandwiches I have become spoiled. This was nothing but a thin sandwiched on hard bread.
