Austin – Quiznos

When I visited Denver in Colorado I went in a Quiznos as it was the first one that they had opened. I hadn’t heard of the chain before, so that visit was just experimental, but I was very impressed. At one time there were 5,000 Quiznos locations around the world, but for a series of reasons they ultimately lost out to Subway. There are now around 750 Quiznos around the world and over 40,000 outlets of Subway.

Unfortunately, I’m of the view that the wrong company has won out here with Subway’s food being bland, predictable and IMO cheap. Quiznos, in my view only, are far superior with the food actually having a depth of taste to it. Norwich has a few Subways, although one has recently closed, all of which I can’t say I’m ever tempted by, but if Norwich had a Quiznos I’d be there….

Quiznos have the option of 6 inch, 9 inch or 12 inch subs (Subway are 6 or 12 inches) and the 9 inch sub is the one that I think is the ideal snack size. Above is the Classic Italian (Italian sauce, tomatoes, red onions, olives, salami, pepperoni, ham, mozzarella, and lettuce) with a healthy (well, something like that) pack of Cheetos.

All very lovely and perhaps there will be another expansion of Quiznos in the UK, as the number is now very low (eight at the time of writing).
