    One of my core childhood memories is ordering a meatball sub there while having diarrhea. I walked into the bathroom and saw a single toilet in the middle of the room, and I had never seen a bathroom layout like that before. I was so intimidated that my shit went away and I cried while eating my meatball marinara. Never been there since

I have nothing in common with my old friends anymore. I have nothing in common with my GF. But here, for a brief moment, until this thread washes away with the tide, I feel a connection with you guys, my fellow anons - we remember being like 12 plus or minus a few years and getting a sandwich and one of those cookies (white chocolate chunk and macadamia nut) with our mom while out doing errands, getting groceries and stuff. Subway now is a slop trough staffed by near death heroin addicts serving rotten meat on rubber bread and whose biggest mascot is a child molester. This thread is about knowing that you're not alone in longing for the world that slipped through our fingers, almost as if it was our fault that it's gone. Eat Fresh.

      I tried subway again because I remember it from when it looked like your photo. It was genuinely good for the price, one of my faves as a highschooler.
      The sandwich is like 1/3 smaller than your pic, and you get maybe 1/2 the ingredients. And the ingredients are shit, they have switched fully to fake reformed chicken that looks like old tofu. And the "steak" is like a brown sauce they smear on the bread.

          Agreed. Every so often I think about just offering to cut the bread myself, but then I realize what an ass I’d have thought a customer was if the pulled that.

          I had a customer ask for extra mayo, so I glooped it on thick. She wanted more, so I took another pass. She wanted more, so in frustration I filled the boat and just laid the meat on top of the mayo moat. Cold cut combo, because obviously mayo lady wanted the worst meat sub.

          She came back after eating, told me it was the best sandwich she’d ever had and gave me a dollar tip.

    This was the time where Subway was a combination money laundering/human trafficking scheme for Jared's friends and the largest perpetrator of immigration fraud in the country rather than an actual sandwich shop chain. Inexplicably, it still killed Quizno's and somehow it went another 15+ years without actually slicing their own meats in the shop.

    I remember the walls had old newspaper photos like out of the Cheers opening. Hell, it may still look like that. Shit doesn't change all that often in a small town. Our booths were yellow. I used to get the pastrami foot longs, but they stopped offering those at my location in the late 90s for some reason. I liked the V-cut they used to do with the loaf better than the basic shit they do now. That was unique and made it special. I know entire documentaries have been made about it, and it's obvious, but Subway really has just gradually been going downhill for as long as I can remember.

        I was born in '85. I'm well aware everyone (mostly) is nostalgic for the time and place they grew up, but the early 90's were unironically fricking awesome. That doesn't have much to do with Subway, though. I specifically said that everything else (specifically having to do with food) has gotten better, so maybe Subway only seems so bad now relative everything else that's become ubiquitous (it's probably a combination of both; Subway has definitely gotten worse).

        Also, my parents are literal boomers (48/50), and every Christmas I remember my dad saying something like, "holy frick, toys are so much cooler than when I was your age!" (Yes, he literally said that to a 9 year old on Christmas morning.) Other than food and technology, pretty much everything has gotten worse over the last 25 years.

    the first time i went to a subway it was one with a drive thru and i pulled up and picked something off the menu and the girl asked me what i wanted on it and i said "whatever comes on it" and she said "sir you have to tell me what you want on it" and i panicked and drove off
