A new sandwich shop, Jersey Mike’s Subs, opened in Ammon on August 11, 2021. Each new location that the franchise opens partners with a charity; this one supports The Burn Foundation, an organization that provides free assistance to burn victims. The local Jersey Mike’s is located at 2681 East Sunnyside Road. In the store, a customer can order dine-in or takeout. Curbside pickup is available on the website and app, and delivery is available in most areas. The restaurant is open seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Jersey Mike’s offers a broad array of sandwiches, wraps, salads, and sides. When ordering, first select a sandwich; there is a wide range of subs to choose from, including Turkey and Provolone, Tuna Fish, The Original Italian, Chipotle Cheesesteak, and BLT, among others. Once the customer selects a sandwich, there are many sizes to choose from. The mini is five inches, the regular is seven inches, and the giant, which feeds four, is 14-15 inches. Aside from subs, they can be made as wraps or in a keto- and gluten-friendly “Sub in a Tub,” where all the toppings are in a salad-like bowl with lettuce. Prices range from about $5 for the mini to $15 for the giant, although it depends on the sandwich.
When I tried Jersey Mike’s, I ordered online and scheduled a time for pickup. I arrived to find the sandwiches were not ready. The restaurant was fairly busy, and the meal was ready almost 30 minutes after the scheduled pickup time. The staff was accommodating by providing my family with two complimentary fountain drinks. This was a nice gesture, but it did not make up for the fact that the hot subs were only warm when we arrived home.
I would recommend the Chipotle Cheesesteak sub, which comes with freshly grilled steak, onions, peppers, white American cheese, and chipotle mayo. It is not overly spicy but definitely has a kick. If you are looking for a cold sandwich, try the Tuna Fish or The Original Italian. The tuna fish salad is made fresh every day and is paired with tomatoes, lettuce, chopped celery, and mayonnaise; The Original Italian has provolone, ham, prosciuttini, cappacuolo, salami, pepperoni, tomatoes, and lettuce. All subs are customizable with options to add, remove, or substitute certain ingredients.
Overall, Jersey Mike’s Subs are made with quality ingredients and bread baked fresh on location every day. Prices are higher than the average sandwich shop, but they are much better quality. While it will be delicious, preparing the food may take longer than expected, so plan ahead!
