Pre-made Godmother??

I stopped at Bay Cities for lunch on Sunday, and noticed that they had a basket of pre-made Godmothers (the works, mild or hot). I still opted to have them make it fresh, since I was already waiting a while, plus their bread gets so soggy I was afraid the pre-made Godmothers wouldn't be as good. Anyone try it out yet?? Certainly saves a bit of time.

  1. it's the only way i get them. you're in and out of bay cities in 5 minutes. the bread is sturdy enough to not get mushy or soggy. i've never had an issue with them. plus, they're always making more and new ones are being added all the time.

    1. Trust me, they don't sit in that basket for very long.

      1. I haven't been in a few months, but it sounds like the pre-order basket. I usually fax in an order and then walk in, pick it up from the basket and go in the cash line. In and out in a few minutes...

        1. re: Dommy

          They are different. The pre-orders are now picked up from a counter adjacent to the cheese counter. Otherwise, there would be a lot of people looking for their faxed orders and coming up empty.

        2. only ever had the godmother from the basket and i can't tell that it wasn't just made 5 minutes ago.

          1. Agreed. They also often offer pre-made turkey, ham, and roast beef subs (depending on availability and the speed of people who get there before you) in the open-air fridge next to the cash registers. Those are equally great, no wait and no loss of quality.
