The new location currently has mixed reviews, but it's still early days.

Yelper Roslyn D., who reviewed Jersey Mike's Subs on June 20, wrote, "First time here and I'm a little disappointed. I ordered the Grilled Veggie Wrap with ranch dressing on the side. ... Unfortunately my veggies were raw (not grilled), the cheese was cold (not melted) and I asked for the ranch on the side, but they included it in the wrap -- three mistakes."

"Best sandwiches ever!" said Yelper J C. "The best here are the hot sandwiches like the Philly! Came to get some for a Dodgers game and they came out perfect. Always a great idea to get their fresh cookies as well!"

Jersey Mike's Subs is open from 10 a.m.-9 p.m. daily.
