Another Quiznos Bites the Dust – 8th and M St, SE

Quiznos shrinking presence in DC continues. The one at 8th and M St, SE (at the very bottom of Barracks Row toward Navy Yard) closed at the end of December. Looking forward to seeing who takes this space.

  • Maybe becuse their “food” is awful?

    • They were always packed at lunch. They’re the closest sandwich shop to that part of the Navy Yard. When Domino’s opened across from the 9th Street Gate, they lost a big chunk of their business. They didn’t even have much of a dinner crowd. Also, yeah, food was worse than toasted Hitler. It’ll probably end up a Subway or a Comfort One Shoes or Spike’s new British Navy themed Pogues diner, “Rum, Sodomy & the Hash.”

      • That one was horribly run and it’s about time. Now we have a potbelly next to the Navy Yard, which is loads better.

        • I agree that this one in particular was poorly run. I was wrung up incorrectly 4 of the dozen times i went, and a coworker of mine got food poisoning after a particularly questionable sandwich from there.

  • What’s going on? It is almost like the Jerry’s Sub Shop some years ago. Jerry’s is only open @ gas stations.

    • Market saturation. Quiznos barely staved off bankruptcy last year. Their “reorganization” involved shutting down low-volume stores. They can’t compete with Jimmy Johns/Philadelphia Mikes at that price point, and they can’t compete with Subway in the violent explosive diarrhea department.

    Wow, I didn’t even realize. I’m not crazy about Quiznos but it was the most convenient place to grab a quick lunch from where I work. I hope another lunch option takes its place.

  • The closest sandwich shop to that part of the Navy Yard is the Subway ON THE NAVY YARD. Also, I suspect that many people are walking down to Potbelly’s now, I know that’s my preference.

  • What happened to Quiznos? They started off as a tasty sandwich option but after several months downgraded the quality of their food and it all became total shit.

  • Chicken Tortilla a few doors down recently closed too. It would be great if some food trucks parked near the Ninth st gate of the Navy Yard.

    • Really? What a shame. I went there fairly regularly. It just seems like anything south of the freeway has had a hard time making it.

  • corporation has need dealing with large lawsuit

  • I’m not sorry to see that Quizno’s go (absolutely awful service the few times I was there), but I hope something else takes its place. Lunch options in the Navy Yard area are pretty dismal. The Potbelly is great, but it’s still about a 15 minute walk from my office.

    There is a food truck ON the Navy Yard now – it parks in front of the Navy Museum. Fairly expensive but really good the two times I’ve eaten there. It serves Mediterranean-type food (gyros, etc.).
