Never heard of Jimmy John's, but it looks like I've got a few near me. I keep searching for good subs, but only one has even remotely come close to my local Italian import store and deli. I don't know why I keep trying. I do the same thing with pizza. I'm a hopeless optimist.
oh my! i suffer the same plight as you here in boise, id. we have jimmy johns, and i had them way back when i was at school in champagne illinois. but i so miss italian subs from chicago. and there is no good pizza here in boise...but I'm going to try another new place on saturday...but its a grimaldis chain.....but...it may be the best of the worst....so I'm slightly hopeful.
