Review: Jimmy John's - Vito Italian Sub

Jimmy John's "Vito" Italian sub features genoa salami, provolone, capicola, onion, lettuce, tomato, and an Italian vinaigrette on French bread.

An 8" sub was $5.99.

Jimmy John's is one of those places I've always wanted to try but I had never come across one (there are only a few in all of California and just one in Southern California). Fortunately, they recently opened one in the next city over.

The sandwich was fairly narrow but was a pretty good size. They scoop out a little bit of the crumb from the top half of the roll so the ingredients fit better.

The bread crust was slightly crusty and fairly chewy. The crumb was super soft, moist, and just slightly chewy. Like Subway, the bread is baked in-store.

The meat and cheese were sliced really thin and both were pretty fresh and very flavorful. Instead of abundance, they went with just really good quality stuff (they also have a double meat, double cheese version for about $2 more).

The veggies were fresh and the tomatoes in particular had a nice deep red color to them. I could have used a little more onion and vinaigrette though, as their flavors didn't quite pop as much as I'd hoped.

Overall, Jimmy John's "Vito" Italian sub was pretty tasty and enjoyable. I particularly enjoyed the squishy soft crumb of the French bread and the flavor and quality of the meats and cheese.
