Fast Food Out of Necessity: Quiznos [Moved from Pennsylvania board]

Bashful3 | Jul 1, 200610:18 PM     6

Needed to grab a quick lunch before the theater today, Lion King at the Academy of Music. Went downstairs at The Bellevue, and finally settled on a steak sandwich "wit" at Quiznos, for $6.19, plus a $1.29 drink, and a free cup of soup.

What surprised me was how tender and lean the meat was. Sadly, it wasn't even sizzled on a grill--it was heated before being put in a nice roll with mushrooms, two kinds of cheese, and an OK sauce, all of which was then warmed in some sort of heating device.

I'm not raving about it, and it doesn't compare to a genuine steak sandwich on a better, harder roll, but it did strike me as being quite healthy, relatively speaking, given the two slices of cheese. I felt no guilt during or after eating it. It was certainly a good value for that part of town.
