Jimmy John’s Drops Anchor in Oxford

20 Jul

With more than 1,000 stores in 39 states, Jimmy John’s has begun construction on a new store in the former location of Quizno’s at 2206 W. Jackson Avenue.

Founded in 1983, Jimmy John’s offers more than a dozen different sandwich combinations with toppings such as ham, turkey, roast beef, bacon, avocado spread, sprouts, cucumber, cherry peppers and more. All of the meats are sliced in the store daily and there are also low-carb lettuce wrap options available.

View the full menu online here.

UPDATE 8/9/11 : Jimmy John’s opened today.

    Jimmy John’s is the best. They have great service, good prices, and even better food than Subway or Quizno’s.

    JJ’s made me miss Deli News all that much more. Vv disappointed. BTC Old Fashioned Grocery needs an Oxford satellite location.

    Tried it today. Music too too loud when asked if it could be turned down, we were told it was the “ambience” the guy taking our order couldn’t hear us, we couldn’t hear them call when the order was ready. No napkins, no forks. We had to leave and come back to work to get plastic silverware. Couldn’t have conversation with my spouse. Tuna lettuce was covered in 2 inches of sprouts not a good first impression. Hubby’s “rare roast beef” was overdone. We’llbe going back to Newks. More expensive by a few dollars but hey…you get what you pay for.

      I had pretty much the same experience. I will not be going back…Oxford has too many good sandwich shops to eat what I was served there yesterday. Sorry, Jimmy Johns.

      Gina, I agree with your assessment wholeheartedly:

      * The music is much too loud. I told the guy who seemed to be in charge that they will never get any older customers to patronize their sandwich shop. He didn’t care.

      * If you would have been able to stay and eat, you would have been succumbed by the freezing cold inside, you can be glad that you returned to work to eat your sandwiches.

      * I was astonished that they did not have plastic forks (!!!) or plastic knives, their absence is also part of their “ambience”. The napkins were besides the cash register, you had to extend your arm and reach over the barrier to get some (!). Even lowly Subway has superior amenities.

      * Although the sandwiches appear to be a good value ($4.75 – $6.75), one of their flagship “Giant Club Sandwiches” was hardly a blip on my hunger radar. I will give them one (1) last chance with “The J.J. Gargantuan” ($7.75), which is so speeecial that it’s Trademarked.

      * GOURMET??? Their advertising guys are huffing glue. The quality and quantity of their ingredients is pedestrian at best. Aramark has better cold cuts. They should be named: “Jimmy John’s World’s Biggest Meh”.

      In keeping with the menu propaganda, Jimmy John’s mother should be fired, drawn, and quartered for such poor hospitality and food. The Jimmy John’s franchise is truly a parody of itself, Saturday Night Live needs to do a skit on it.

    Jimmy is OPEN!!!

    Jimmy John’s is the best! The #5 Vito (italian sandwich) was my favorite throughout my four years at Alabama. I joked with my friends that the only thing I’d dislike about law school at Ole Miss was the fact that there wasn’t a JJ’s in the state of Mississippi!

    A flyer at my apartment complex’s (The Links) mail box says the opening will be August 2nd.

      JJ’s is still dark as of Friday night August 5. 

      I’m intrigued by all the activity in this thread.  I guess a good sandwich is a universal way of saying “satisfying”.  I especially appreciate a good sandwich on a long road trip, it really hits the spot.  

      I think the terms “grinder” and “hoagie” are unfortunate monikers, and I wish they were never invented.  If you’re bored out if your mind, Wiki has a good treatment of the topic, and the etymology of the word “hoagie” is particularly interesting   – http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Submarine_sandwich

    is there an opening date we can look forward to?

    • eatingoxford July 24, 2011 at 10:36 am #

      When I heard back from corporate they did not provide an opening date, just that it would be “opening soon”. They seem to be moving along pretty quickly; the signs are already up. These types of operations usually get going fairly fast. I’d imagine it will be open by mid to late August.

    Never heard of them, but I like that they have lettuce wraps.

    It’s about time! Most SEC schools have a JJ. They would have been smarter to put it closer to square however.

    • Jess August 19, 2011 at 6:34 pm #

      the city doesn’t allow franchises ON the square and the lots which are just off the square are REALLY hard to come by and its a sheer stroke of luck if you get one. BTW, I tried this place the other day and it was TERRIBLE. The service was just OK and the food was disgusting. Don’t know why anyone would be excited about this place. Just proved to me that Oxford is RIGHT in their mission to support the local restaurants over a chain. The food here in this town is a cut above the rest and this place cant even keep up with Subway?! It wont last through the year, mark my words….

    I look forward to there finally being a Jimmy John’s in Oxford!

    I don’t love chains but JJ’s is a step up from Quizno’s – and they deliver.

    • Anonymous July 23, 2011 at 8:29 pm #

      I thought Quizno’s was closed.

    • Jenn July 23, 2011 at 8:31 pm #

      Quizno’s closed awhile ago. I think JJ is taking over there location.

      • Jenn July 23, 2011 at 8:35 pm #

        Sorry. Misread your quote. Yes, JJ’s is better than Quizno’s. I just miss the Deli News!
