Publix Subs - What's so Great?

I just recently moved to Atlanta and we have Publix here. Everyone talks about their subs.

What's so great and what do you get on your sub?

Boar's Head meats? Toppings?

  1. I usually get the Italian sub, with Boar's Head, mayo and a dash of oil, black pepper and oregano. I'd get jalapeno too, but they never have fresh ones, only pickled.

    1. When traveling in the FL/GA area, Publix is a great place to have / pick up a sub - substantially better than Subway & similar sub chains, although they'll never compare with a typical CT grinder.

      1. It's pretty much a standard sub done acceptably well and with fresh ingredients that comes in at a good price point compared to the standalone shops. We'll split a whole turkey & swiss or turkey & provolone and then add spicy mustard, oregano, Parmesan, onion, tomato, green pepper, and black olive.

        1. Very fresh bread, really like the multi-grain bread. The toppings are also very good. My big pet peeve, though, is that there is never a lot of meat on it. Seriously, very little meat, otherwise, it is a really good sub.

          1. Their cuban is pretty good. As others have mentioned, the fresh bread is good. The Boars Head meat subs are usually a buck more.
