My favorite food has always been sandwiches so I was pretty excited when Jersey Mike’s Subs opened last week on Railroad Canyon Road. Jersey Mike’s is not new in Southern California but now all that sandwich deliciousness is just 5 minutes from Canyon Lake.
Jersey Mike’s is famous for their “Mike’s Way” subs that are made with super thinly sliced onions, shredded lettuce, tomatoes, spices, and what they call “The Juice” which is a combination red wine vinegar and olive oil. It’s a little different taste than you get from most sandwich shops around here. If you’re a fan of Blimpie’s, it’s similar, but Jersey Mike’s in my opinion is a little tastier.
The menu is pretty simple with about 9 cold sandwiches featuring some great meats like prosciuttini, cappacuolo, pepperoni and others. There are also 6 hot sandwiches including some great ones like cheesesteak, chicken parm, and pastrami reuben. Want a wrap? They have that too or you can turn your sub into a salad and eat it out of a bowl (without the bread I assume).
Now this is a pretty simple sub shop (the way it should be). They only have one type of bread, but it’s delicious, and just a few types of cheeses. Fixings are limited and no soups or anything like that on the menu, but trust us, it’s delicious and something unique for the area.
The first week they were open, Jersey Mike’s was busy, but the line moved fast and they have this sandwich making stuff down to a science. If you are looking for something a little bit different for lunch or dinner, or maybe a take-out order for cruising the lake in your boat, give them a try. They are open 7 days a week from 10am to 9pm and you can order online at www.jerseymikes.com.
