Went to Marinas’s for lunch today.  Loren was craving an Italian sub and I just can’t help but get a cheesesteak here.

Actually, the cheesesteak was on special today with fries.  They just make an ooey gooey yummy cheesesteak here.  The bread is soft with a little crunch on the outside.  So good.  Total bill with a drink was $15.

Remember that PSA from the ’70′s where the little guy sang a song about not drowning your food in “..mayo, salt, ketchup, and goop”?  That’s all I could think about when I got my cheesesteak from Marina’s.  I asked for mayo on it, and boy, did I get mayo.

The cheesesteak was good, but next time, I’m definitely asking for a little mayo.  Loren got an Italian sub.

The subs here are pretty big and very filling.  Both of us could have stopped with just half a sub.  I do like the rolls they use here.  Total bill with a drink was $16.

    Friday night around 8pm and we still hadn’t eaten dinner.  Decided to just grab a couple of subs from Jersey Mike’s.  They had a pretty busy day since all they had left was wheat bread and not that much of it.  They had their fingers crossed that it’d be slow in there for the next hour.

    Loren got an Italian sub, Mike’s way.

    He really liked it.  They slice the meats to order and he really likes the oil and vinegar mixture they have.  I got a cheesesteak with onions and mushrooms.

    It was pretty good as well.  They cook it up fresh on the flattop, unlike Subway that just tosses it in the microwave.  I was afraid the wheat bread was going to be tough, but it wasn’t.  It was fresh and fluffy.   They make some good subs here.  For $14, we were satisfied. 

    And yet, I still wanted dessert, so we drove over to TGI Fridays and got a slice of vanilla bean cheesecake.  It didn’t last long enough to get a photo taken.  Well worth the $6.

  • We needed a break from turkey, so we headed out to Vetture’s in Palm Harbor for lunch before walking through John Chestnut Park.

    Since we’ve been eating non-stop for the last two days, we decided to split a 12″ cheesesteak sub and an order of fries.

    I like the cheesesteaks here.  The unique thing about them is that they put a little bit of  tomato sauce under the cheese.  It gives it a different flavor and makes the whole thing very moist and gooey.  The roll is lightly toasted so you get a little crunch as well.  The 12″ sub was more than enough for the two of us.  With the fries and a drink, the total bill was $15.

    One thing I can say about Jimmy John’s is that they are quick at putting together a sub.  By the time we had paid and walked over to the soft drink fountain, both our subs were ready. 

    We ordered a #8 Billy Club and a #7 Smoked Ham along with chips and drinks.  I thought the rolls were a little on the tough side today.  They were a bit chewy.  Total bill was almost $18, which seemed a little on the high side.
