Any supermarket deli counter sandwich is going to beat fast food.

They have a whole deli counter there at the deli counter

Hand Banana: hbk72777: While I'm all for throwing the book at people, I can have sympathy for those that steal food. Nobody steals food unless they need it. We're not talking flat screen tvs or X-boxes.

That's not true though, people steal food all the time that don't need it. See the group of vapid teenage girls who decided to dine and dash recently only to get locked out of their car. Not that needing food makes stealing ok, although it makes it more understandable.


Exactly. Just because the item stolen is a necessity, doesn't mean the person was in the right to steal. If the person is in need, stop being prideful and ask for help. I had talked to a lady that stoled food for her kids and was caught. The manager cut her a break and gave her food. Sadly more people in this world are not like this manager, however she admitted she should have gone to jail and never stole again. If the person is truly in need, why not ask. The worse that could happen is finding out how much of a terrible person other people can be.

LeviathanFafner: To be fair, Publix subs are farking amazing!

No they are not. Soft mushy rolls, shredded lettuce, sub par tomatoes. They are a poor example of a submarine sandwich, or "grinder" if you prefer. You have to be in New England, or at least the Northeast to experience a great subarine sandwich, on a proper roll.

KeelingLovesCornholes: The Publix in Sarasota across the bridge from Siesta Key is incredible. Great deli and incredible seafood counter and fresh sushi. Maybe we're a little biased because we are on vacation whenever we're there, but still. She wasn't slummin' it subby.


Yes it is! They have one of the best sushi chefs at this Publix. I will miss this place when I move to Canada.

One thing I learned as a clerk in a 7 Eleven was that some people settle for very little in life (such as clerks in 7 Elevens).

Take the guy who stole a case of Bud Lite on my shift. To any farker -- no matter how much he loves beer -- risking jail over 10 bucks of crappy 4.2 lager that won't last the weekend is pure madness. You'd think that they'd at least try to nick something worth the risk, but they don't think that way. Convenience stores are still among the most popular targets for armed robbers even though everyone on the street knows that they usually only have $20 in the till.

What you have is people tho think on the brute level of scavengers, like jackals. A jackal doesn't think about the future, about how it will eat tomorrow or what that lion's paw could do to it 2 min from now. All it thinks is that it could dash in and snatch that gob of flesh. If it gets away with it, it's one mouthful of meat ahead in life; if not, it's chased off for the moment and free to try again. Its ultimate defense is not being worth the trouble of chasing down. Eventually it catches the paw, but that's the fate of a scavenger. It's natural to see in jackals, but disgusting to see in humans.

nucal: Publix fried chicken is pretty amazing stuff. Great bakery too. And the best grocery store dine and dash was done by this guy:



Joe Namath eats a sandwich


That's funny because I see Namath at the Publix in Tequesta all the time.

I'm still waiting for him to come in drunk one time and ask one of the bag girls to kiss him.

/I love Publix subs too

There are some shiatty ones up here, it blows my mind what these people will eat.
If there's one thing southerners can do competently, it's fatten themselves up. I grew up down there & the food is the only thing I ever miss.

Publix really does have some good stuff.

Oh there's fat people everywhere. Florida has great food, especially seafood, and local favorites like key lime pie to name a few. I could not find decent pizza or submarine sandwiches in either Miami or Orlando....maybe they exist somewhere in the sunshine state, but they eluded me. Miss the good bar-b-que down south.

blindy the pirate: DiRF: Publix is seriously a damn nice place to do a grocery run... I can save money by going to Winn-Dixie, but other than the deli, Publix is superior in every way.

Publix has Boars Head. Plus the sub counter and the hot food counter. Plus you don't have to deal with the toothless hillbillies that frequent Winn Dixie


This, and This.

/winn-dixie should have a shoeless, toothless hillbilly as their mascot. Truth in advertising.

False. Who pronounces it that way? No one, that's who.

Publix sammiches kick ass. That is all.

For years I thought Publix subs were crap.

The reason was my only exposure to them was the bulk sandwich ring subs that a former employer used to truck in for developer lunches during "crunch weeks".

Two words: Refrigerated Bread.

Horrible horrible sandwiches.

Since then I have had an opportunity to get them freshly, custom made at the counter, and it's definitely a better experience.

I still prefer Sobik's when I get a chance to get near one (they seem to be endangered these days) but a Publix sub is good.

Provided I get there before a line forms. Even a four person line at my Publix can burn through my lunch hour.

100x this. The restaurants subby listed are garbage compared to Publix.

Eh, Publix sub rolls are very hit or miss, at least in their outlying stores away from Florida. They're made in-house, and can vary from crusty to the point of cutting the inside of your mouth to overly soft. Worked at numerous stores in Tennessee in the deli, and that drove me nuts at every store I worked in.

I did a quality check at my local Publix. I ordered a whole roast beef and provolone (Publix brand -- Boar's Head roast beef is overcooked). Mayo, lettuce, tomato, black olives, banana peppers and pickles (squeezed out to keep my sammich from getting soggy). I just want you all to know that they passed with flying colors and my sub was, as usual, farking fantastic.

Now, now. We gets electricity out here, and the satellite dish brings in decent reception for TBN and live wrasslin. I've been rereading my Pilgrim's Progress and McGuffeys, so yes, I can read.

Didn't bother to read the FTA. So, it's one of them gigantic big box chain grocery stores. Okay. My bad.

Personally, I'd dine and dash in a grocery store before I ever set foot in a Red Lobster.
