A mood: You've just waited on line for upwards of 20 minutes at Jersey Mike's in the commuter caf and you finally hear "Hot or cold sub?". Your response?

You cringe as you frantically order a roast beef and swiss with only mayo, knowing full-well that everyone around you is thinking that your sandwich is super bland, boring, and unoriginal.

Welp, have no fear! Because like a supportive BFF, Spoon SHU is here to help you out. Check out what us Spoonies order at Jersey Mike's to beat the bland sandwich blues:

Brooke's Order

Brooke Harrington

#2 - Jersey Shore's Favorite - ham, capicola, and provolone on wheat bread, with lettuce, banana peppers, mayo, oil & vinegar, and seasonings.

Life's too short for boring subs! Spice things up with my own go-to order. The banana peppers take this sandwich from zero to hero. They bring about the perfect amount of heat to contrast the acidity from vinegar and creaminess from the mayo!

The Glory from Glory Herself:

Glory Akoh

Glory is a huge fan of the Chipotle Chicken Cheese Steak; a lighter option than the classic Philly cheese steak! She thinks that the chicken is tastier and has a better balance of flavor.

Chris' Ultimate Sub-in-a-Tub: 

Chris Coppola

Turkey, Roast Beef, American Cheese - IN A TUB, with bacon, tomato, oil & vinegar, and seasonings.

Shout out to all of you gluten-free Pirates! Always the creative one, Chris' pick is perfect if you don't want to deal with the mess of oil and vinegar dripping down your arms or if you need to take it to-go! A sub in a tub is also a healthier option as you eliminate the bread (although what's a sub without bread, still trying to figure that out).

#SpoonTip: Jersey Mike's also has gluten free-bread options if you're still a fan of the classic sub set-up.

Gianna's Grab-N-Go

Gianna Barone

#13 - Italian mini with no cheese, oil & vinegar, lettuce, tomato, and seasonings.

Our editor, Gianna, is one busy bee. She likes to order this sandwich because it's a quick bite between classes and is loaded with all those delicious Italian deli meats and tons of flavor. It's surprisingly filling for such a small sub!

Brennen's Take on the Philly Cheese Steak

Brooke Harrington

#16 - Chicken Philly Cheese Steak with Cheddar and Parmesan cheese

Toppings: Grilled onions, peppers, lettuce, chipotle mayo, bacon

Brennen's order is all about the toppings! With all these add-ons, this cheese steak is full of flavor. You definitely don't want to miss out on the grilled onions and peppers - the ever-so-classic cheese steak topping that take it to infinity and beyond! 

Of course there are a million combinations to create at Jersey Mike's Subs, but we hope that these few sandwiches can help you when you want to try something new or don't know what to order while your standing in line. Don't forget that to make any sandwich better you can simply order it Mike's Way which means getting lettuce, tomato, onions, oil & vinegar, and their signature Italian spice blend!

Of course, when you order one of our member-picked subs, be sure to snap a pic of it and tag us with @spoon_shu for a feature on our official Instagram page! Happy ordering!
