Jersey Mike’s Subs is now open in Wichita in northeast Wichita! It’s been a restaurant I’ve been looking forward to with great anticipation. Everybody has their favorite sub shops in town. For me, Moe’s Sub Shop was my favorite of all the options, but they are now closed. That left me with no other option for a sub that closely resembled Moe’s.
Enter Jersey Mike’s Subs.
2564 North Greenwich Road, Suite 550
Wichita, Kansas 67226-8276
Open Daily from 10am to 9pm
Wednesday marked their grand opening. Like many restaurant openings, the lines were long.
The interior was smaller than I thought it’d be. There were five four-tops and five two-tops along with a handful of seats along the front of the restaurant.
Anticipating long lines, I checked their website and online ordering was available. Boom! That probably saved me 20-30 minutes of waiting. I placed my order, paid for it online and walked straight to the cashier when I arrived. Eat smarter, not harder folks!
As I was getting ready to walk out, an employee stopped me and struck up a very small conversation. He ended it with, “Why don’t you have a seat and enjoy it here? Here’s a cup for a drink.” I obliged.
I’d be lying if I said I was not getting giddy at this very moment.
Say hello to the No. 13, the Original Italian done the Mike’s Way with onions, lettuce, tomatoes, spices and “The Juice”.
I’ve had Jersey Mike’s before in Oklahoma and loved it and this time was no different. Everything was made and prepared on the spot. It wasn’t all prepackaged meats wrapped in paper like Subway. What I received was a fresh sandwich with pillow-like bread. After finishing, I contemplated ordering a second for myself.
For those gluten-free readers, they have gf options available as well.
The staff did a great job keeping customers moving and tables cleaned. I’ve seen some rough opening days at restaurants but Jersey Mike’s seemed to really have it nailed down for the brief time I was there.
One other thing to note, I overheard a conversation between an employee and some other guests. They are definitely looking into a west side location. They recently looked at 21st & Maize so that could be exciting news for west siders who don’t want to make the drive out east. Either way, I’ll definitely be back.
Sorry I didn’t get a menu with prices, I didn’t even look at the menu sheet as I grabbed it on my way out. My #13 was $8.55 for a regular. A mini would have been $6.35 and a giant was $14.95. Prices for regulars ranged between $6.75 and $8.55.
Here’s their menu:
