Jimmy John...I Love You!
Don't worry...Steve loves him too.
If you've never heard of or been to a Jimmy Johns...your life is incomplete. They make "gourmet sandwiches." Really, they're just very delicious subs and sandwiches, but they are THE freakin' best I've ever had in my life. The things they can do to a sandwich are unhumanly...Rare...Lovely...Unmatched in all the world. (All blasphemy aside...The 13th Article of Faith truly applies!) Once you've eaten at Jimmy Johns, Subway and all others will taste like pure rubbish! I can't even describe how much better they are. I even switched Mayo (to Hellman's, aka, Best Foods) a while back so my at-home sandwiches could taste even a little like J.J.'s. The atmosphere is really fun too. They have really funny signs of all kinds. It's just a good time.
The first time I ate there was with Steve when we were first dating. For a very brief moment in time, there was a J.J.'s across the street from BYU. And then, without warning, it was gone. I think they turned it into a Dairy Queen. (That's a whole other rant about how there aren't enough DQ's in UT!) Nevertheless, it was still sad.
A few months later, we found a J.J's in St. George on our honeymoon--6 hours away. Ahhhh. It quenched the thirst, but only for a short time.
Last year, we had Steve's mom pick us up a couple sandwiches while she was visiting St. George. Over 6 hours later, we finally got them. Even that old...STILL kicked all others' butts.
Fast forward to now...
Two J.J.'s have opened up on the Wasatch Front!!!! Alleluia and Glory Be! We went there a few weeks ago and it was just like heaven.
You all have them somewhere around you. There's one in Tucson, Nashville, Hendersonville, a gillion in Austin and one in Round Rock, and one in Murray and Lehi, UT. It's worth the drive!
