      I've been to the one in New Brunswick a few times. I could do without the kitschy quotes on the wall, but the sandwiches aren't bad.

    2. Been to a few in NC, decent sandwiches, seem to be better quality than the Subways, Quiznos, and the like. Will never replace a good made from scratch sub, but for a quick bite, worth stopping in.

        Are you saying that the sandwiches at Jimmy Johns are not made from scratch? What does that mean? Are they manufactured at some remote facility and shipped to the retail outlet for sale?

      2. I used to go to Jimmy Johns when I went to school in Illinois. The bread is amazing and they have really fast delivery. I am glad to see that they are starting to open up in NJ. I cant wait. I saw on Yelp that they are scheduled to open on July 16th. Try the gargantuan if you are hungry. They should do well in NJ.

            The Freehold location noted in the original post closed shop around 6 months ago.

              I have been to the new Lakewood location two times and enjoyed my sandwich, but that's all they have besides soda & chips :-( sides at all which disappointing me a bit....cold slaw, pot salad, mac salad etc?......But,.. I never saw anyone inside eating, just 6 employees hanging around behind the counter...? nice concept, clean establishment,
              good food, service friendly,....I Hope they make it as well ....lots of big National Chain competition, there's a big popular Pizza Restaurant two doors down "Ippolitos Cucina Italiano" selling subs also?...

        2. Jimmy Johns and Golden Corral ... boy the food in Freehold is getting better and better. Next Subway and Dunkin Donuts...
