The 5 Absolute Best-Tasting Sandwiches at Subway

When you’re yearning for a sandwich and it’s not a burger, then it’s a pretty popular idea to just head on out to Subway. They let you customize your sandwich so you can just cherry pick everything: the bread, the veggies, the meat, the sauces, and the cheese. 

But what if you can’t be bothered to concoct your own special combo and you just want to trust the preset sandwiches? If you want something good, stick to the following sandwiches:

  1. Sweet Onion Chicken Teriyaki

Plenty of surveys have this sandwich at either number one or number two in terms of popularity. It’s not hard to understand why, especially if you have a taste for something a bit sweeter than usual. 

To start with, you have the Hearty Multigrain bread. It doesn’t have any cheese or seasonings as the default, but you do have the Sweet Onion Sauce and the Teriyaki sauce. For veggies, you get the combo of cucumbers, green peppers, lettuce, red onions, spinach, and tomatoes. 

It’s a great diet sandwich, actually, considering that all these ingredients only add up to 330 calories. The sodium level isn’t all that bad either at 800mg. Yet you also get 24g of protein. 

The chicken strips have all been glazed with the teriyaki sauce, so the sauce covers every inch of the chicken. And this isn’t just any ordinary teriyaki sauce. The quality is so high that it can compare to any elegant Japanese restaurant’s teriyaki sauce. Combined with the sweet onion sauce, it’s a delectable meal. 

  1. Spicy Italian

This is the main rival of the Sweet Onion Chicken Teriyaki in terms of popularity and outright deliciousness. The default bread is the Artisan Italian, with no cheese and no sauce. For veggies, you get the same combo of cucumbers, green peppers, lettuce, red onions, spinach, and tomatoes that you’d find in the Sweet Onion Chicken Teriyaki. 

It’s a bit higher in terms of calories and sodium, but that won’t matter much when you’re confronted with this treat. The pepperoni and Genoa salami meats are just great. They offer that spicy zing that makes each bite a flavorful treat. 

In addition, the versatility is fantastic. That means you can go with any bread, cheese, or sauce, and invent any topping combo of veggies, and you still have a fantastic sandwich. There’s no way to sabotage this delight. 

  1. Chicken & Bacon Ranch

This offers you really tender chicken, and it’s been marinated and seasoned by a master. Then you add bacon, and every fast-food junkie knows that bacon makes everything even better. That’s true for burgers, and it’s true for many sandwiches as well. And when you add the melted cheese, you have an undeniable masterpiece despite the seeming simplicity. 

Well, it’s not really simple, since you have the Monterey cheese along with a list of veggies. These veggies include lettuce, red onions, and tomatoes. Add the Peppercorn ranch sauce, and everything’s just fine. Many of us like to add the green peppers, spinach, and cucumbers, but the default setting is still good. 

You can even have it toasted, though that may come with an added cost. If it’s a free option at your local Subway, then you definitely should go with the toasted version. Most Subway sandwiches don’t actually improve with toasting, but the Chicken & Bacon Ranch is an exception to this rule. 

  1. Meatball Marinara

This is another sandwich that’s an exception to the “don’t toast” rule. In fact, toasting is the default option. The meatballs are drenched in the marinara sauce, and then you have the Parmesan cheese sprinkled everywhere. 

There aren’t any veggies in the default setting, but you can always add whatever you want. The reason why there aren’t any veggies here as default is that you might not want other flavors to distract from the preset flavor. The combination of the Italian spices in the meatballs, along with the marinara sauce’s tomato taste, is just fantastic. The only extra flavor you need is the Parmesan cheese on top. 

  1. Italian B.M.T.

The name is maybe the only annoying aspect of the sandwich, as it’s an obvious play on the BLT sandwich. But the acronym doesn’t stand for specific ingredients. Officially, it means that it’s the “biggest, meatiest, tastiest” sandwich of them all. 

That seems a bit cheesy, which is ironic as it doesn’t have a default cheese in the ingredient lineup. You do get the Genoa salami, spicy pepperoni, and black forest ham. These 3 meats combine for an intriguingly playful combination of flavors that won’t bore you to tears. And you also get these veggies: cucumbers, green peppers, lettuce, red onions, and tomatoes, which at this point should be a familiar combination by now (minus the spinach, though). The price for the 6-inch Italian BMT is $5.73 only, so it’s fairly affordable.
