Looking back at some of my previous Quiznos reviews, I discovered something odd. While I’d often extolled the virtues of Quiznos’ various options for sandwiches under $5, I had mainly focused on reviewing the limited time special sandwiches, which generally are more expensive. In an effort to correct this, I recently had two bullets, the $3 price-point sandwiches (larger torpedoes come in at $4, while small flatbread “sammies” are only $2). Here’s my thoughts!
Both the Turkey Pesto (which I’d had before) and the Beef, Bacon & Cheddar were quite good. The Pesto Turkey was topped with mozzarella cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, and the titular pesto spread. It had a vaguely Italian flavor without being spicy, which was nice. I sometimes think about going back and retrying particularly good or bad sandwiches, let me know if you guys would be interested in reading that. The Beef, Bacon & Cheddar was more plain in comparison, since I only added tomatoes to the named ingredients. However, when you’re combining bacon and cheddar cheese, it’s hard to go wrong.
Both sandwiches were very tasty, but even together they weren’t quite filling. The bullets definitely work better as snacks than as a meal, since the two of them together cost $6 and were less filling than a Subway footlong. However, I still maintain that Quiznos subs are much better in terms of vision of how their sandwiches should taste compared to Subway, and these cheap sandwiches are a great opportunity to see that firsthand.
