I got the chicken and bacon barbecue sub. Very delicious, meaty and full of flavor. Line moved quick and place looked clean.. Also had Texas chilli with cheese. That was pretty decent chilli also. Definitely better than Subway. Dine in or carryout.

Fantastic subs that are jam-packed with meat. Don't forget to ask them to put on banana peppers and sauce tho, or they may not put it on. They also have wheat buns, but you have to ask for that option.

Big Johns is a Genesee tradition and while not quite up to what it originally was it still is a quick good value meal.
