After a recent late night at work I swung by Jimmy John's on the way home to grab a sandwich for dinner. While there I had a chat with Kyle, the owner and a friend of mine from college, about his business, my blog, and our mutually share passions for travel and good food. Kyle opened the reasonably new Jimmy John's location in Baton Rouge, the first and only one in Louisiana, on Perkins Road near the overpass. I wrote about Jimmy John's in one of my first blog posts ever, but now I have pictures, so I thought it was time for an update!

Kyle's team is a fun and energetic crew that makes sub-style sandwiches with a purpose. Their assembly line flows far better than the Baton Rouge traffic outside the restaurant, so it is really never a bad idea to stop in for a bite or call in the order for delivery!

On this visit I took a shot at the #10 Hunter's Club which features a 1/4 pound of medium rare roast beef, provolone cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, and mayo all aboard Jimmy John's signature fresh-baked bread. I opted for dijon mustard instead of the mayo cause that's what I do.

The sandwich tasted delicious. The fresh, thinly sliced roast beef melted in my mouth and combined with the provolone to create a wonderful flavor profile. The soft bread held the sandwich together perfectly as the tomato and mustard worked together to accent the sub. I do love a good sandwich. The only thing I found wrong is that the Jimmy John's crew, apparently in a rush to get a catering job wrapped up and delivered, forgot to add the lettuce to my sub. No worries though. It made me feel even more like a wild hunter man as I devoured the meat and cheese sandwich and proceeded to lick my fingers to get every morsel of flavor onto my tongue! I'll be back, that's for sure. Thanks Kyle, and keep up the good work!
