    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.

      I’ve been hiking to the food trucks at Navy Yard Metro. You could also try Al’s Famous Deli at 8th and L. They do a decent bulgogi sandwich and their reuben isn’t too shabby.

      • If I’m going to walk as far as the Navy Yard metro I might as well go to Mangialardo’s which is slightly closer. But it’s rare that I need to buy lunch anyway.

    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.

    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.).
