The service in this restaurant was great, the portions seemed a little shy though. I visit sandwich shops regularly and have grown to like Jimmy John's over Subway though!

Service was friendly, almost apologetic. Like they knew I was going to be disappointed. Title says it all. This was my first and last visit.

Our company ordered subs for lunch and this was my first experience eating one of Jimmy John's subs. It was the most plain tasteless sandwich I've ever eaten. They neglected to put the avocado on which was the reason I chose the particular sub. Boring! Plain! Thin! Will not order here again.

I have been to many Jimmy John's restaurants in my life, and I love the chain overall for their customer service. However, at this particular location, they don't care about respect for their customers. I am a seasoned JJ's diner, but it was my friend's first visit. We'd been there two minutes and my friend hadn't yet decided what he... More

I guess speed is the only appeal here - for the life of me cannot see any other bonus. You have no choice of anything, not even bread (I think they charge you extra for wheat!!!!!!!) They are not "allowed" to sell water from the fountain machine, because they're near campus, what the hell is that about. They have NO... More

Poor front end understanding. Quick sub-making. Quality seems to have declined. Floor was really wet and several employees walked by and didn't do anything.
