Low-Price Lunch Rises Above the Subterranean Sandwich

Rushing out to an activity this weekend, lunch was a "grab at the nearest place" affair. That meant choosing between Domino's and Blimpie's. We don't order Domino's under pretty much any circumstances, so Blimpies was the default choice.

Not a big Blimpies fan, but the youth contingent were fine with it, and discovered the best deal on the menu: a $5 footlong. Only hitch is that you have to order a drink for about $1.40. All tolled, that's just $1.80 more than a the 6-inch sub ($4.59).

Since Subway was crossed off our list years back after an unfortunate $19 lunch for two kids, I don't know how $6.40 for a footlong and a drink stacks up in the "cheap eats" department. It seemed like a deal, and it got the job done for two kids at half the expected price.

Wherever you are in Nashville, there'a a Blimpies near you. U no u e-10 it, as the kids say in text-ese. So how do you rate our choice, the food Blimpies, and what do you get when you're there?
