    I had the spicy sausage last week, and was pleasantly surprised. Plenty of sauce, and the sausage was just the right level of spicy.

    Sighh.. Quiznos is awesome sadly I’ve seen 4 go out of business near me.

      Yeah the two in my town left as well. I guess it’s hard to stay competitive with Jersey Mikes, Firehouse Subs, and Jimmy John’s moving in recently.

        Quizno’s has pretty much been constantly in trouble with their franchisees. Here’s an article about the most recent round of lawsuits: http://www.denverpost.com/ci_22803584/denver-based-quiznos-hit-by-new-lawsuits-from

        Quizno’s main issue (in addition to treating franchisees very poorly) was that it got stuck in the middle in terms of quality and price.

        Back in the day, Quizno’s was basically the nicer Subway. A bit more expensive, but higher quality. Plus, they toasted their subs. However, they were eventually outflanked on the quality end once the better quality sub places came into the market (Firehouse, Potbellys, Jimmy Johns, Jersey Mike’s, etc.). At about the same time, Subway’s $5 foot long juggernaut took hold. Subway became far and away the best option for the purely price-minded consumer. Additionally, Subway put quick toasters in all of their stores.

        Quizno’s at that point had the choice of either competing with Subway on the price end of things or trying to compete with the nicer sub places in terms of quality. They tried to do a bit of both, and it ended up not working very well. They launched a Torpedo and Bullet line of subs on the cost end that, while cheaper than Subway, were also noticeably smaller. The overall quality of their ingredients also never seemed to match up with the higher end places.

        The other issue with Quizno’s was an absolutely disastrous advertising campaign several years ago which, among other things, featured a man suckling on the teat of a wolf. Why a restaurant would associate something so weird and repulsive with their product is beyond me.

        All in all, I don’t think Quizno’s may be long for this world.

    Yea, in my area all the Quiznos have gone out of business except a couple that are attached to Hess gas stations. Those are not in the best shape or area either. As the other guy said, it’s hard when a jimmy johns or jersey mikes is popping up in every shopping center.

    Quiznos going out of business is their own fault. They are a horribly run franchise and one of the worst possible franchises you could ever buy. There have been complaints by franchisees for years and years about how Quiznos operates and most people would rather just shut down the place than deal with it anymore.

    Same here with quiznos here in Michigan. By the way firehouse subs is terrible imo. I was so excited to try them after all the good things everyone said about them on here. I would take Jersey mikes or dibellas over them every time.

    I just had the spicy sausage. I don’t know, it was not good, it was not bad, it is definitely spicy though. Holy crap it is messy though, do not eat this at lunch if you are around people, this has to be eaten at home with lots of napkins on hand. It is a good value though, lots of food.

  7. TJ says:

    They seem to be doing just fine here.. granted we don’t have Jimmy John’s, Firehouse, Jersey Mike’s etc. If it wasn’t for this site I would never have probably heard of those places. For us it’s Togo’s and Port o Subs, and many other local joints, but even those just seem like reasonable alternatives, nothing to get all that excited over though.

    • BigBelly says:

      Togo’s has always been consistently good around here (the number 9 puts Subways “big pastrami” to shame), back 8 years ago or so, Quizno’s prime rib sandwich might have topped them, but then they changed it, and it sucked.
      if you like pulled pork, give Togo’s a try, it’s not exactly cheap (6.25 for a 6″, 8.25 for a 9), but it’s huge, and quite tasty (sweet baby rays sauce)

  8. TS says:

    I don’t ever eat at Quiznos but decided to try it for the first time last week….well I would have except they were charging $5+ for 5 inch subs. I stared in disbelief for a few seconds then walked out. When mom and pop shops are putting out footlongs in the 6-7 dollar rage for freshly sliced meats I see no reason to ever eat here. Hopefully they all go under as nobody eats it anyways
