    I picked other because 99% of the time, I try to stick to small mom and pop diners if I can so that the money is being funneled into the small businesses here in my town.

    Not saying that I will not stop and eat a Quarter Pounder or a Black Angus sub from Quiznos, I just try to eat local as much as possible.

    i respect that, I'm gonna start doing that too, because it may cost a little more then lunch from home, but it's supporting small businesses like us, i think this could be very helpful to everyone

    Lots of areas have good local sandwich options that Subway and the chains don't have - cheesesteaks in my area, BBQ pork sandwiches down south, etc. I'd hate to see all the cheesesteak places get replaced with Subways.

    Wait till they try to market a BBQ brisket sandwich with 4 grams of fat - they'll be run out of Texas by an angry mob!

    There is a Chinese restaraunt on every corner, I usaully get the lunch special for $4 which is an entrée rice and a bottle of water.

    Maybe every other week I will hit chipotle.

    Of course subway a couple times a week. Fast food is disgusting after working outside..

    I really try not to eat when the heat of sumer gets here. Usually a yogurt and a banana. Every now and again we hit the Hooters but thats on slow days. The longer we sit there the beer starts looking too good!
