Restaurant talk: Jimmy John’s

The new retail/medical office building at Bishop and Colorado is nominated for the award "Best Development in Oak Cliff in 2009" from the Oak Cliff Chamber of Commerce. Considering that the medical industry is one of the only sectors still building right now, it’s kind of brilliant to add retail into the medical office mix.

And the development brought the first Jimmy John’s sandwich shop to Oak Cliff.

I ordered a No. 2, the "Big John," an 8-inch sub, which comes with thin slices of roast beef with lettuce tomato and mayo, which was just under $5. I added cheese for 79 cents extra. With chips and a drink, my total was close to $9. It was a little more than I had expected to spend, but it was a good lunch. The sandwiches are big and filling. The brand-new restuarant, which opened three weeks ago, is super clean, and the staff is friendly.

    I really like Jimmy John’s. I, too, like them better than Subway or Quiznos, but that’s personal taste. I hope Oak Cliff residents will give them a chance because it’s not so bad to have a few chain restaurants in your neighborhood.

    This is a great lunch addition to the Cliff. Yes, it’s a chain, but there is an Oak Cliff/Austin type feel inside. The sandwiches are delicious, fast, worth the money and far better than Subway and Quiznos.

    I fear the franchise will suffer due to the local craze that has taken over OC. I hope those of us that live in the OC will give them a shot.
