Larry's Giant Subs / Steve's Subs, 3315 Broad River Road / 7546 Garners Ferry Road: Feb 2010   4 comments

Posted at 11:06 pm in restaurants

According to this Loopnet posting, there were three Larrry's Giant Subs up for sale at the same time, either retaining the Larry's franchaise, or as restaurant space. I would guess then that they were all run as part of the same operation.

I have not checked the Sunset Boulevard location, but both the Broad River Road and Garners Ferry locations have already been taken on by Steve's #1 Sub Contractor. In the case of the Broad River Road operation, this puts Steve's back very close to to their former location at Broad River & Saint Andrews.

I find it a little odd that the places flipped from one "guy's first name" chain to another "guy's first name" chain!

Also look how Steve's has pulled the "Giant" from the Garners Ferry sign. I know that it's just because it's not part of their branding, but it almost leads one to think that perhaps the size of the subs will be decreasing..

(Hat tip to commenter Alicia.)

UPDATE 28 Oct 2010 -- Well, Steve's didn't last long at all:

UPDATE 23 October 2011: Well, I wish I would have done this post as two separate entries, one for each location, but the Garners Ferry Steve's location is set to become Japan Grill:

UPDATE 3 November 2011: Well, it turns out I did do a separate entry for the Garners Ferry location, but never indexed it. What a mess! I'll copy the Japan Grill pix over there too and index it, but it will still be a mess!

  1. The Larry's G.S. in Lexington closed about a year ago. Their space, located near the Publix, sat empty a couple of months & was soon occupied by Ollie's Gourmet Deli. I never tried Larry's so I have no comparison to make. But I did try Ollie's loaded slaw dog and it was generous & tasty. Still, for the price, I'll stick with Rush's. What I want to know is why hasn't the new Miyo's opened here in Lexington. They started work over a year ago at a site in front of Home Depot. Then about 6 months ago work halted. I'd love to have a Miyo's closer to home but now I get the feeling the economy has ruined that too.

  2. I used to love Larry Subs! They were never stingy when it came to the meat and toppings.

  3. I was on Craigslist last week or so, and there were two sub shops for sale for the price of $50k, so I guess those were the other two. This location used to be a Little Caesar's, and there is now another Little Caesar's in the same shopping center.

  4. I visited Steve's on Garners Ferry 3 or 4 times and they had really good sandwiches. Every time I was the only patron in the shop and a lunch crowd of one will not go very far. The parking lot in front of the store is usually packed so I do not know where all the shoppers were.
