I've done a number of closings on various Quiznos around town as you can see if you check the Alphabetical Closings list. This one is just east of the Brickyard Shopping Center, and in fact has stoplight access to Two Notch from there if you go around the back way. I don't have a lot to say about Quiznos. As I observed in another post, I ate at one once and it was OK, though nothing that drove me to seek out another.

  1. The problem with Quiznos, all of them, were they were far to expensive for what you received.

    Sammiches are supposed to be affordable. In the age of $5 footlongs from Subway that are quite tasty, Quiznos is an evolutionary dead end.

  2. Ate there often when I worked in the area.
    Rudest employees I've ever encountered.
    It seemed like they were annoyed you even came in for service.
    Several times came in an hour after opening and the chairs were still up on the tables. Had to ask if I could put one down to sit on.
    Also, had a Spring Valley High discount card which entitled you to free drink and chips with purchase of sub. You would think they were providing this out of their own pocket as you would get a dirty look when presenting the card.
    Not surprised they closed as after awhile myself and my coworkers just quit going there altogether.

  3. I agree about Quiznos being too expensive, this seems to be a problem with most sub places. I only ate there one time when they were in Lexington. Even the $5 footlong is becoming a thing of the past. Now Subway is offering a $3 six inch. Although I still think they are on the expensive side, I think FIrehouse has some of the best sandwiches around.

  4. Subway has nothing on Quizno's as far as a good sandwich. The same with Blimpie's. Those are just so generic. If you want a cheap sub sandwich, with bland meat, go to Wal Mart and get their sub, which is about 16" and cost $6. A sandwich should be a work of art. I completely agree with Quizno's being overpriced, but they were very good. When they were on Sumter Street, I used to go because they had this special that was a six inch sandwich, drink, and chips for $3.99! When they rang it up prior to the coupon, it was around $10. Crazy. However, it was incredible. I have not been to Firehouse in a while, but I agree they are good. Publix has good subs. It is hard to beat Boar's Head meats. True, you have to go in, but it is worth it. The way I look at it, you either get value or you get a good sandwich. Rarely both.

  5. I don't eat at sub places very often.

    The only one I enjoy is Firehouse though they are on the high side. I think the Coco-Cola Freestlyle is what drew me to them.

    If people had issues like kholler describes and word circulates, it isn't hard to see why it closed. I think the same thing happened with Shoney's at Bush River & Arrowood.

  6. Of all the sub shops around town, I still love a good old #19 from Sub Station II. Their Reuben ain't bad either.

    I do like a Jimmy Johns once in a while as well.

  7. I was a fan of the #13 at SSII for many a moon until I got ahold of the spicy italian on italian herb and cheese bread from Subway. Same meats, about three bucks cheaper, a LOT more meat, and more veggies!

    I'll agree with jonothan that the Publix Boar's Head subs are da bomb, but they are almost as pricey as Quiznos (a lot better, though, IMO).

  9. Kroger also has Boar's Head sandwiches in the deli. They run about $6.00 and up depending on the size. They are good but I usually end up buying another little pack of meat from the deli to 'flesh' them out a little more. They also make sandwiches with their Private Selection line of meats that are a bit cheaper.

  10. This was the last Quizno's in Columbia. The next-to-last store (one built into the cafeteria at the Blue Cross Atrium building) closed about a year ago. Quizno's made a big splash when they first opened, with toasted bun sandwiches, but once Subway added these, Quizno's had trouble competing.

  11. Finally, a Jimmy Johns on the northeast side of town, going here. I didn't see anything about an opening date, but it looks close.
