New: Jimmy John's Gourmet Sandwiches

Posted By on Thu, May 13, 2010 at 1:55 PM


There are a plethora of sandwich shops to choose from in Little Rock, from the $5 Footlong folks, to Lenny’s Subs, to my personal favorite: the decidedly-delicious and unabashedly low-rent muffaletta out at Stagecoach Grocery. This embarrassment of big-sammich riches always leaves us a bit fluxumened when it comes time to pick one. Now there’s a new place to go in North Little Rock if Subway or Quizno’s just doesn’t cut the stone ground spicy mustard for you: Jimmy John’s Gourmet Sandwiches on E. McCain Blvd. Part of an Illinois-based chain with over 100 outlets, they’ve got sandwich making down pat, and their prices aren’t bad, either (around $7 for their top-shelf “Giant Club Sandwiches”). We’ve stopped in there twice now, and both times we got a big, hearty sandwich full of very fresh ingredients. Their subs aren’t crazy huge – an 8-incher is standard. What is nice, however, is that instead of going long with the bread and then skimping on what’s between the buns, Jimmy John’s sandwiches are filled with loads of great meats and fixins. On out first trip, we tried the Italian Night Special, with Genoa salami, capicola, ham, provolone, lettuce, tomato and Italian vinaigrette. The result, while a bit petite for someone raised on the two-fisted footlongs, was tasty and fine. Definitely worth checking out if you’re into grinders, subs or heroes.

 4120 E. McCain Blvd, North Little Rock. 945-9500 10 a.m. – 10 p.m daily. All CC accepted. No alcohol.
