The New Sub Shop in Town

165 Holt Garrison Parkway (Coleman Marketplace), Danville, Virginia

By Patricia B. Mitchell, 2009.

My family and I recently tried the new Subway at Coleman Marketplace in Danville, Virginia. The eatery has large windows, making it a bright, non-claustrophobic place to eat. It was tidy. The ladies' restroom had no purse or coat hooks, a flaw of many public restrooms. What's a woman supposed to do with her pocketbook and/or coat? Put them on the floor? I should hope not!

Well, anyway, now that I've gotten that particular pet peeve off my chest (or arm, or back, or whatever), I'll write about the food and service at the Subway.

My husband and I ordered the 12-inch Oven-Roasted Chicken Breast on Whole Wheat. We asked the server to put Provolone chese, carrots, spinach, Parmesan cheese, oregano, a little olive oil, and the “the works” (minus the hot peppers) on the sub. He was frugal with the Parmesan cheese and oregano, but otherwise he did a nice job constructing the big, yummy sandwich.

Our daughter ordered the Tuna Salad Mini Sub. They were skimpy with the tuna salad, which was very wet. The size of the bread was quite petite.

Our two sons split a Tuna Salad on Honey Wheat. They chose American cheese. They, interestingly enough, thought that the tuna salad was not too moist.

We also had soft drinks and cookies.

The staff could have been more cheerful, but, all in all, the meal was pleasant.
