Matt Bonner's Sandwich Hunter: Jan. 4, 2010 - Milwaukee
Entry #8 - Jimmy John's Gourmet Sandwiches: Milwaukee
by Matt Bonner
Before I went in, I noticed an interesting sign in the front window. It said: "World's Best Gourmet Sandwiches". What audacity! According to Jimmy John's, my search was over. It reminded me of a scene from "Elf". When Will Ferrell congratulated a coffee shop for having the world's best cup of coffee after seeing a similar sign in the window.
Despite the arrogant self-proclamation, I am a huge fan of Jimmy John's. I went in and spotted assistant coaches Don Newman and James Borrego eating at a corner table. I approached them for the usual salutations and asked about a photograph for my blog. They obliged. I am certain Coach Newman's runway modeling career will take-off once this gets posted.
I went to the counter and ordered my usual at Jimmy John's: a Tom's Turkey sandwich, chocolate chunk cookie, and barbecue chips. Whenever I order at Jimmy John's, I always say "easy on the mayo". I've found that they tend to overdo it with the mayonnaise. As usual, they had my sandwich out to me before I was even finished paying. Jimmy John's is renowned for the speed in which they make sandwiches. It's unbelievable.
