CT Cuisine: Subway


In the latest quest for the ultimate student lunch, Trail Media reporters Shishyan Bhatta and Yabe Beneberu set out to review the worldwide fast food chain, Subway. Known for its customizable sandwiches, salads, and wraps, Subway is a healthy option for the C.T. High School lunch scene. 

  Subway offers a wallet-friendly menu for students on a budget, allowing them to build their own sub without breaking the bank. With a variety of bread, meats, veggies, and sauces, the versatility of flavors in Subway sandwiches is endless. Starting at $6.99 and going to around $9.99 for the standard 6″, this option is a student favorite as it offers a variety of options at a reasonably affordable price.

  Subway’s bread boasts a freshness that can’t be ignored. Soft yet sturdy, it provides a solid foundation for the variety of veggies and meats students can add. The meat choices are diverse, from classic Turkey and Ham to the Italian B.M.T. The freshness of the veggies adds a crisp and juicy layer to each bite, boosting the overall experience.

  Compared to its peers, Subway wins regarding its various dietary preferences. With options for vegans and vegetarians, Subway opens its doors to a broader demographic of students, ensuring that everyone can find a sub that suits their taste. 

  Regarding speed, the Subway assembly line ensures a swift process. Within a matter of minutes, students-created sandwiches are ready to go. Given the time constraints of high school lunch periods, this production method is an added bonus.

  The Subway atmosphere is distinct, with its vibrant green and yellow decor creating a cozy backdrop for students to enjoy their meals. The aroma of freshly baked bread lingering in the air also creates a welcoming ambiance. Compared to Dion’s, the seating could be more spacious, prompting students for a quick grab-and-go experience. 

  Compared to its sub counterpart, Dion’s, the location of the Subway could be better, as it’s at the farther side of the King Sooper, potentially adding to the time crunch students have during the lunch rush. However, this problem can be negated by ordering online and simply walking up and picking up the order. 

  Subways bring a variety of flavors to the table. Its emphasis on customization and speed makes it a viable option for students for lunch. Stay tuned as we continue our series, exploring how Subway stacks up in retrospect. Will it be a fresh victory or a subpar experience? Only one way to find out.
