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