Comparing Roast Beef Subs
Comparing Roast Beef Subs
My first roast beef sub was last week when I went to McAlister’s Deli which I have been before but not for the roast beef. I ordered the “Craft Your Own” Roast Beef sub for $7.09, cheese was an extra 65 cents. The meal also included a small cup of potato salad. While the salad was good, I was very disappointed with the sub. The picture on their website shows a sub roll, piled high with thin sliced roast beef. Since I ordered to take out, I didn’t see what the sub looked like until I got home. When I opened the container, there were a few pieces or thicker roast beef, almost like the end of the roast on white bread, not a roll as pictured. Needless to say, the quality was nothing like what was advertised.
WHICH WICH SANDWICHES
My next stop the beginning of this week was a new place that recently opened, Which Wich Sandwich Shop. They have a different ordering concept, you pick a numbered bag that matches what you want to order. The roast beef is #3, so I took my bag, marked off my options, 7″ roast beef sub on white roll. For options, I added provolone cheese and lettuce. The price was $5.75 plus 60 cents for the cheese. The roll was soft and the beef was thinly sliced but it tasted more like processed beef, not cooked on site. For the price, it wasn’t bad, but I wasn’t thrilled with the taste of the roast beef.
JERSEY MIKE’S SUBS
My third roast beef comparison was when I went to Jersey Mike’s today for their 7″ Roast Beef sub. You get you choice of cheese with a variety of toppings, all for the same price of $7.95. I choose a white roll for my sub with provolone cheese, topped with lettuce, tomatoes and mayonnaise. Jersey Mike’s uses certified Angus USDA beef and it’s cooked on the premises. The roast beef is cut wafer thin and piled on the roll with the cheese, so mouth-watering delicious.
I have been a customer of Jersey Mike’s for some time but I wanted to give the others a fair comparison. After comparing roast beef subs from McAlister’s and Which Wich, Jersey Mike’s won hands down not only for the best tasting, but the most ingredients on the sub and the one that was closest to the advertised photo. Their bread is baked on site, their meat and cheeses are always fresh and the variety of toppings are plentiful, plus no extra charge as the other two sub shops. Even the crew members at Jersey Mike’s are attentive, friendly and polite. So when it comes to comparing roast beef subs, I say Jersey Mike’s all the way!
