First Jersey Mike's Subs in Canada

Postby jasonec » Fri Jun 02, 2017 5:45 pm

OK guys, this is huge.

A girl I work with is from Point Pleasant, New Jersey - she lives in Kitchener and was driving down Fairway Rd a short while back and noticed "Jersey Mike's Subs" opening soon and totally flipped. It's a sub joint that started in Point Pleasant, and makes the best subs in the world (her words, now mine).
She basically stalked the place until they opened, and when they had their private opening party, she demanded to be let in - since her license plate says JRZY GRL, they totally did, hushed the crowd and gave her a round of applause.

Apparently, they have a huge chain of restaurants in the US and are now expanding to Canada, Mexico and Australia.
Kitchener is the first location and IT'S OPEN NOW. London and Toronto are next.

I've been there 3 times in the last week alone.
Oh my frickin' god. It's amazing. Order a cold sub done "Mike's Way" (red wine vinegar, olive oil, spices, etc.). All the meat is from New Jersey and is sliced onto your sub as they are making it with this big meat slicer.

Yeah, I get it. But I've always been a big fan of Greek food. Heck, I married a woman who's very Greek!

The John Anderson Restaurant I grew up next to in Mississauga (and jumped in the Opening Day bouncy castle!) was run by a Greek family. That has since changed. But I loved the burgers! ... and their souvlaki dinner. :oops: :D

Great pics of the JA; hasn't changed:

Sorry but nothing beats the "Mike's" chain from Quebec. Best subs ever. (Is there going to be a trademark fight?)

Looks delicious! They should try moving west, into Ontario!

... but then Mr. Sub might have real competition. :oops: :wink:

I've actually had them too - very similar to Mikes from Jersey! Both are awesome :D
