Jersey Mike’s Subs opened it’s first Frederick location late last month. It serves “authentic Northeast-style subs on fresh baked bread” including hot (e.g. steak and cheese), cold (e.g. Italian cold cut), and salads. The new shop is located at 5599 Spectrum Drive in the new strip mall formerly occupied by Pargos.
The family and I got some subs at Jersey Mike’s this past weekend. I got the buffalo chicken wrap which was tasty and featured a good amount of grilled chicken. My wife got The Big Kahuna Cheese Steak and said it was ok, but needed something. I think my son faired the best with a ham and provolone sub that he gobbled up. He got the mini size and that was bigger than any sandwich you would probably make at home and is probably more than enough for a lunch.
Based on our first visit I suggest sticking with the cold subs from the menu. The nibble I was able to pry away from my son’s sub had really good bread along with quality meat and veggies. The subs in general seemed much better than the other sub/sandwich chain offereings.
A couple other things about our visit that may be useful to you:
- Our bill came to about twenty five bucks to feed three, which is comparable to a meal at a place like Panera.
- The place is small, probably 8 booths and a couple tables.
- Hot Subs are made fresh so you have to wait, but a cold sub will be prepared and in your hands by the time you pay. Probably good to keep in mind for lunch time trips.
