Will probably not return to this Jimmy John's. The staff wasn't very interested in how I wanted my sandwich prepared and they seemed poorly trained.

You know what you get from a Jimmy Johns and this doesn't disappoint. Has a drive through that's pretty fast. There are two locations now in Johnston but this was the first.

Jimmy Johns is the best sandwich place that i have ever been to. Friendly people, freaky fast service, and delicious food.

Went there for lunch because they usually have fast service. Took over 8 minutes to get my sandwich. They did not have enough employees helping.

After many Jimmy John sandwiches from various locations throughout the greater Des Moines area as well as Ames, and several banquet orders, I've yet to be disappointed. The service and the quality ingredients - especially the gourmet loaf - it's all just great. Both of the Merle Hay shops have been consistent with other locations.

Ordered four sandwiches for delivery. We only live about 5 blocks from there . After 25 minutes we called for an update and was told they were "walking out the door with your order" 15 minutes later we got the order not only was service slow they got it wrong! Subway has better food

Thank garyv1955
