Subway Sandwiches - Wal*Mart


You would suspect that restaurants within a chain would all be pretty much the same, considering they all get the same rules, regulations, and materials. Yet, with all the Subway restaurants I’ve been to, I would have to say that the Subway in Wal-Mart is consistently the best one to go to.

Since we have two Subways in Eldersburg (the other one is east on Liberty Road, next to the Liberty Bike Shop), lunchtime rushes are split in half and the workers aren’t so hassled by the long lines. The staff at the Subway in Wal-Mart are always kind, clean, and enjoying themselves to some degree.

The tables are set up neatly and there is never any debris from the last customers. The floors are cleaned and the back area for drinks is always tidy. It’s an enjoyable place to just sit, eat your sub, and watch the people traffic in Wal-Mart.

The prices are the same as all other Subway locations. Anything you order will be about $4 to $10, but since all their subs are made right there in front of you and just how you like it, I think it’s worth it.

Behind the glass, rows of freshly chopped lettuce, tomatoes, radishes, and peppers are stacked neatly next to other sub toppings, all of them colorful and looking delicious. The gentleman making my ham and swiss sub handled all of the ingredients with care and put them together with love (although I may be mistaking love with slow precaution of a new employee). He cleaned off each tool he used and made sure he wasn’t cross-contaminating – always something nice to see while someone is making your meal.

The cashier was quick, but laid back most of the time. It was understandable though; they had just been through the lunch rush and there wasn’t anything that really needed to be done, it seemed. Why do busy work when you can regain energy?

My sub was delicious, as usual. Toasted a bit more than the other Subway shops I’ve found, but I like it that way because it melts the cheese and keeps it warm the whole way home. My lunch buddy, however, wasn’t so much of a fan of the extra toasting, so if you’re not into that either, make a note about it. He had the grilled teriyaki chicken, which he said had “tasty bread, succulent, marinated chicken, and fresh, as always, toppings.” He has also had consistently good experiences with Subway.

For safe food at a decent price and a welcoming facility, the Subway in Wal-Mart is the way to go.
