Sandwiches in Review: Jimmy John’s Beach Club

January 24, 2010

I’ve discussed one of Jimmy John’s subs before, and I figured it was time to try another one of the sandwich franchise’s offerings.  Jimmy John’s offers a number of cold cut subs on fresh-baked bread, with entries varying from the usual ham and cheeses and italians to more creative options, like the Beach Club.

EXTREME CLOSEUP!!!

 The Beach Club is a turkey and provolone sandwich, which also includes avocado spread, sliced cucumber, sprouts, lettuce, tomato, and mayo.  With that many ingredients, the sub could become cluttered.  However, Jimmy John’s managed to pull it off with flying colors.  The turkey and provolone were fine, but the really stars of this club were the cucumber and avocado spread.  The cucumber provided a cool flavor and pleasant crunch, while the avocado made for an interesting contrast.  The inclusion of lettuce, tomatoes and mayo helped to fill out the sub and keep it grounded.  The only element I was not impressed with was the sprouts, which are a bit messy and not noticeably flavorful.  The bread, of course, was delicious, but for Jimmy John’s that really goes without saying.

The Beach Club is a Gourmet Sub, which means it runs for a bit more than some of Jimmy John’s other sandwiches, usually around $5.50.  It is without question worth the cost, given the unique flavors and ingredients.  The Jimmy John’s Beach Club gets two thumbs up.

    I love sprouts, but usually in place of lettuce. It’s a nice fresh taste, and they’re very good for you.
