Nothing hits the spot like a great sub sandwich. Long, hefty layered sandwiches filled to the edge with your favorite ingredients and easy to hold, sub sandwiches always hit the spot. There’s just something about bread (often pillowy soft, sometimes toasted) and overflowing with fresh-sliced deli meat, cheeses, fresh veggies and every condiment your heart desires. While food trends come and go, subs are considered a classic for a reason. And here in Arizona, when you want a sub sandwich, eegee’s is here to satisfy those cravings.
But what is it that makes eegee’s head and shoulders above the rest? Why is it the go-to spot here in town above other sub chains? Well, there’s more to sub sandwiches than just grabbing any loaf of bread and stuffing it with meat. In fact, here are five reasons why eegee’s has the best sub sandwiches.
Quality ingredients make all the difference in the world. It’s why a freshly made sub will always taste better than that vacuum-packed plastic sandwich from the gas station. But fresh meats and veggies only go so far. What really elevates any sandwich to the next level is fresh bread.
Here is where eegee’s really excels. All the bread used in house is made fresh daily. And the bread actually tastes and smells like fresh bread. There are other chains that like to say they bake bread fresh every day, but the bread comes from premade starter kits that, when finished, have an almost plastic smell to it. You’ve been around bread enough to know when something smells baked, right out of the oven, and when one smells like there’s added chemicals to the bread to help it remain “fresh” longer.
So when you want a quality sub, you need to start with quality bread, and you simply won’t find the kind of bread anywhere else like you do at eegee’s.
At eegee’s the subs are all made fresh to order. These are not pre-packaged sub sandwiches like what you find at the grocery store. When a sandwich is pre-packaged some of the moisture that’s given off will soak into the bread. This leaves the bread with a bit of a damp taste to it. You want everything to be crisp, and the only way to do that is if the sandwich is made right when you ask for it.
It doesn’t matter what kind of sub sandwich you are interested in or how many you would like, the sub will always be made just for you, right when you order it. This way, you’ll know you can bite into pure heaven whenever you order yourself one at eegee’s.
Sometimes you don’t want to get out of your car when ordering food. In fact, sometimes you don’t even have the time to get out of your car to order food. In other cities this means your only option is to grab a burger. And while sometimes burgers can be great, they can also weigh you down. Instead, a freshly made sub sandwich comes with veggies and perfectly sliced meats and cheeses. You’ll feel full without feeling like you ate a brick. And thanks to the drive-through you can grab your eegee’s sub sandwich without ever stepping foot outside the vehicle.
This is also perfect when you don’t want to step out of the vehicle for safety concerns. The past year and a half has been nuts, and nobody would blame you if you didn’t want to go inside another establishment if you didn’t have to. Well, at eegee’s you don’t have to. Remain in your car, make your order at the window, and prepare yourself for delicious sub sandwiches.
Have you ever heard that the best way to determine the quality of a BBQ joint isn’t with the BBQ, but with the sides? It can be the same way with Thanksgiving, where the quality of the sides is what helps set the meal apart. Well, the same is true with your sub sandwich.
What do other sub restaurants give you when ordering a sandwich? Maybe a bag of chips. And it’s one of the reasons why your eegee’s sub stands out. You can order yourself some award-winning eegee’s French fries. There’s nothing else like this, especially when you get the specialty Ranch sauce added to it.
An exciting advantage of ordering sides with your sub is you can experiment and add the fries to your sandwich. Make it all your own. It’s just one of the great things that eegee’s allows you to do and other restaurants don’t.
When you grab a sandwich from a national chain restaurant the money you’re spending is not remaining right here in Arizona. A chunk of it is going back to a corporate office out of state. There’s never been a more important time to support local businesses than today. When you grab yourself a sub sandwich at eegee’s you’re supporting a local business that has been based in Tucson for 50 years. And, while there are several eegee’s locations throughout Tucson, Casa Grande and now the Phoenix area, all the money spent at your local eegee’s remains in the neighborhood. So the money you spend goes to paying the wages of local workers, and some of the money you spend goes to local taxes, which helps improve the quality of life here in the city.
So while the sub sandwich itself already stands out above the other spots in the city, you can also have peace of mind knowing you’re helping the local community as well.
Instead of pulling out your phone and searching for food “near me”, back out of the search and instead look up the nearest eegee’s. The beautiful thing is there will be one close by, wherever you are in town. Venturing out of Tucson? You’re now starting to find the local chain in other Arizona cities as well. So when it comes to satisfying your hunger cravings you don’t need to try and make it yourself, and you don’t have to settle for second best. Instead, all you need to do is come on out and visit your neighborhood eegee’s. With an array of delicious subs and sides and, of course, the classic frozen eegee drink, from sweet to salty, all your food desires will be met by stopping by the local restaurant today.
