  1. Dang!!! That’s crazy. Cheap, good, big. Sounds like a good promotion. I’ve spoken to some of the Quizno’s franchisees and they’re not too happy about the corporate marketing….seems they’re trying crazy things like this to stay afloat amid Subway’s genius ad campaigns and it’s just not sustainable. I feel for the store owners, it’d be tough to have to basically give your stuff away. We’ll see how they fare but I think we’ll start seeing some shops go the way of your local Circuit City.

    I’m not a real big fan of Quiznos, to be honest. I find their food not that great. But anyway, the new graphic at the top of this blog is the most fantastic buger and fries I’ve ever seen. Maybe I’m just really hungry, but dang! That’s some good looking food.

    Despite stealing Subways thunder with 13 inches, it is served on very skinny bread. I thought the sandwich itself was very good, but not comparable to subways foot-long deal.

  4. Wow, good to see Quizno’s really step up to the plate with a true footlong. I mean, sure, the other promotion was good (I find Quizno’s to be of higher quality than Subway) but this one really evens the playing field. The Turkey Club has my name on it. Perhaps I will pick one up this week. Thanks for making me aware of this 🙂

    Its especially tough since quiznos tastes so much better than subway – yet the masses listen to advertising and cheap prices of subway

  6. Adam says:

    Not everyone wants a designer sub. I for one appreciate that I get full customization over my sub at Subway. Knowing how hit-or-miss differen Quiznos franchises can be, I’m still sticking with Subway.

    BTW, if I want Ciabatta bread I’ll go to Panara or Au Bon Pon or something. Can’t anyone just get a good old fashioned wheat or italian bun these days?

  7. rob says:

    I don’t like Subways because you have to tell them what to put on it, I don’t want to make a dozen decisions I want a sammitch.

    On the other hand Subway stays open during tropical storms and ever category 1 hurricanes which I appreciate cause you can get some hot food when the power is out.

  8. Kai says:

    Had one today, wasn’t very good. Also check if your local quiznos accepts online coupons.

  9. I would like to have yalls phone number and where is yall located at i am in wilson nc 27893

  10. Lisa Benson says:

    I had one yesterday, the turkey pesto – and it was great! Yes, the bread was skinny, but i was full before i finished.
    Subway can’t compare to Quiznos when it comes to taste and quality – sorry Adam – but if i just want a regular sandwiches on regular bread i’ll make it at home!

  11. Chris says:

    I had one of these new Torpedoes and it was awesome. Perfect size and great taste. Had the Pesto Turkey. The cool thing about this is that you can eat it on the go with the special bag that it comes in. Revolutionary. Great job Quiznos. And about time they get back to the edgy advertising.

  12. Jon says:

    i just finished one and it was ok.

    the coupon online caused some controversy when the dude at the counter tried to charge me for the individual parts of the combo rather than give me the combo price and just hand me a sub (wtf?!)

    I like quizno’s and subway equally well for different reasons. i tried the turkey club. The lettuce jumped out on my first bite so i recommend you keep it in the sleeve if you want to keep anything on the sandwich.

    The flavors were good for the price, i wish there was more bread because i think the best part about Ciabatta is the flavor of the bread. I didnt get that except for the two ends and it was very tasty.

    overall, i’ll definitely go back again for a cheap, filling lunch for $4.

  13. Another reason to love Quiznos. I love your site! Let me know if you want to exchange blogrolls. Email me!

    I just got back from getting a Pesto Turkey… the sandwich is okay, but the girl told me the coupon meant I had to buy a sandwich, add the combo and then I’d get a free sandwich. I had thought the coupon meant you pay for the chips/drink and the sandwich is free…. Am I just not reading it correctly or are they just trying to get out of giving away sandwiches???

  15. Beth says:

    Ryan-
    Thanks, I can see that. I thought maybe I just read it wrong and I’m standing there, hungry with a sandwich so I just paid for the dang thing and left. This isn’t even the first time this has happened to me at this Quiznos (I know, I know) so I think today might have been the last time.

  16. Eric says:

    Quizno’s sux! I personally wouldn’t buy anything from them again.

  17. Jennifer says:

    Sorry, but I was unhappy with the new Torpedo sandwiches. We just at the beef/bacon and cheddar, and the Italian, and we were unsatisfied. The particular store we went to did not provide tomatoes on the sandwiches (as advertised) so my husband had t0 cut them up from our frig. There was no pepperoni so my husband had to have salami on his. For the price of $4.00 each, Subway provides much more food and quality.

    The coupon we printed out from (http://www.sdshoppe.com/coupons/quiznotorpedo040109.png) almost wasn’t honored because it was too big!! All in all, make the sandwich bigger, with accurate ingredients, and maybe we’ll go back.

  18. Heather says:

    Delicious w tasty bread at a great value.However, after reading the fat grams ranging from 18 grams to 50.5 per sandwich, not a great choice for a dieter. Wish they had a veggie option.

  19. stephanie says:

    I got the Turkey Pesto today. It was ok but the bread was so narrow they had to roll the turkey up to get it on there. Dressing sorta spilled out since there was very little bun to absorb it. Messy. Also, the coupon for buy one with a combo get one free was a problem for me. She did not give me a combo price and a free sub. She added one sub, the price of a drink and the price of chips separately. She said the combo price is a dicount in and of itself and I couldn’t combine it with the coupon, even though the coupon stated I needed to Purchase a “combo” to get a free sub. She said I had to purchase the components of a combo (sub, drink, chips) but not at a combo price in order to get a free sub. Made no sense whatsoever. Cost about $1 more doing it that way. Nifty little trick.

  20. Michael says:

    I tried one today and it really wasn’t bad- but it was much smaller than expected from the advertisement.

    To everyone complaining about not honoring the coupon- I would fall on Quizno’s side here saying you read it incorrectly. It seems as though the clear message is if you buy a full combo you also get a free sandwich on top of that. I wouldn’t have ever imagined that it meant the “upgrade to a combo” price from the way it was worded because buying a combo seems pretty standard in all fast food restaurants.

    I think subway is definitely a better deal, and wonder how they’re making money off the five dollar footlongs, but I do also think Quizno’s in general has better tasting subs

  21. Mon says:

    The Pesto Turkey Torpedo is pretty good, although it is skinny in size; it was enough for me. I’ve been going there almost everyday and I am completely satisfied. However, some quizno’s restaurants aren’t as good as others for some reason. As for subway, their sandwiches all have the same kind of taste. I prefer Quiznos over subway.

  22. carol says:

    Just had a Pesto Turkey Torpedo and the bread ruined the sandwich. The bread was tasteless and stale. The staff complained that that was all people were buying that day. Surprised me because it they were selling so many why was the bread stale. Very disappointing. I would much rather pay $1 more and get a fresh meal at Subway, anyday!

  23. Megan says:

    I really enjoy the pesto turkey torpedo, and all foods from Quiznos really. But as a health conscious person, I prefer Subway. Subway is lower in calories and equally as filling, without sacrificing taste, if not quite as delicious (I’m a sucker for Quizno’s honey mustard and Red Wine Vinigrette!).

  24. Angel says:

    For all the dieters who prefer Subway, please be mindful of the sodium. One of the lower calorie sandwiches – turkey breast – has about 1000 mg of sodium in one of their footlongs! I’m not picking sides, just passing along the info because I was eating subway for lunch a few times a week before I realized this.

  25. Kela says:

    I didn’t feel like cooking dinner, so I bought a tuna torpedo. It was delicious. It was pretty big, so I had half for dinner and the other half for lunch the next day. BUT, I had no idea how many calories were in that skinny thing! Sorry, I won’t be buying another torpedo ever again.

  26. Lisa says:

    I LOVE QUIZNO’S!!!! They are so much better than that bland-tasting Subway. And my favs are the new Torpedos. Because I don’t like a lot bread, the torpedos are perfect! Just the right size and quite filling. Thanks, Quiznos! 🙂

  27. Saksun says:

    There is no veggie choice. They don’t even want to listen. Some refuse to give veggie torpedo. Some would like to charge same as for a big sandwich. Very unfriendly replies make Quiznos a bad choice for those who wants a veggie version of any new sandwich they introduce.

    My boss Joel is one of the finalists in the Quizno’s video contest for
    $10,000, and he’s giving me the day off work if I just bounce around
    the internet and post comments on all forums and blogs related to
    Quizno’s asking people to vote to help him win, which is actually
    totally awesome of him and I’m glad to do it. It means a day relaxing
    on the computer at home, and his video’s pretty funny.

    Anyway, please take a minute and vote for Joel. You actually get
    entered to win a years supply of Quizno’s subs just for voting, but
    more importantly, you are helping me look good to my boss.

    Here’s the details:
