Always Something Good Going Down at Mr. Sub

This past Friday, I headed out for lunch to Mr. Sub (14760 Yonge Street, Aurora) for a little old fashioned Mr. Sub footlong sandwich that I remember devouring as a teen. 

I arrived with a coworker to a well staffed store of three workers just moving customers through like no tomorrow.  The franchisee, Arthur, took my order immediately. 

The Order: Foot long Assorted Cold cuts on Whole Wheat Bread with Sour Cream & Onion Potato chips and a can of Coke.

I was in and out of the store in less than 5 minutes with my order, not too shabby.  This is a significant improvement over some sandwich shops who only have one or two employees working behind the counter and it seems to take forever for them to power through a lunch time line up.

The surprise came at the cash register, the final price for a basic Assorted combo after taxes was $10.11.  This seems a little steep considering the equivalent sandwich at Subway, which has a location just down the street, for $5.00 plus tax.

The sandwich itself was just as I remembered it.  A healthy combination of vegetables, meat and bread with a side of guilty pleasures in potato chips and a refreshing can of Coke.
