    I’m from Illinois, birthplace of this store, and I think it’s just so bad. Am I doing it wrong? For those of you who like it, could you explain what you like about it? I’m not just trying to bad mouth this place, I want to like it, but I just don’t get it.

      It’s just basic sandwiches with decent quality ingredients, made fast. I really wouldn’t consider them gourmet by any stretch. I think their bread is one of the best aspects of their sandwiches.

      I also don’t get this place. Sure, it’s better than Subway, but having your junk nailed to a plank and dragging the lumber down the sidewalk is better than Subway.

        Disagree—I prefer Subway.

          I don’t think you’d be writing that if you have actually tried both.

      I remember thinking it was awesome when I was in college in central Illinois 20 years ago. But I’m not in central Illinois anymore and have a little more money these days, so I doubt I’ll be eating there.

    Turns out ol’ Jimmy’s a big game hunter.

    Had Capriotti’s the other day, mind was blown. Delicious, probably my go to to spot over Subway/John’s/Taylor/Quiznos.

    I wish it was a Jetties instead.

    Speaking of fast food – any story on what happened to Lime Fresh in Columbia Heights?
