The popular sandwich franchise offers an expansive selection of speedy snacks, including soups and salads. For a trimmer take, try a Torpedo or Bullet, where longer, leaner baguettes get packed with yummy stuffings, such as mozzarella, turkey, and basil pesto in the Pesto Turkey or heaping stacks of meat (ham, salami, capicola, pepperoni) in the Italian. Other sliced bread standouts include sammies (flat bread), signature sandwiches, classic subs, and deli subs. View a complete menu here.

Super Suppers' class schedule is boiling over with fun, apron-wearing-tunities for the entire family. Fans of flavor enhancing will feel right at home during the sauce-making class (scheduled for Saturday, September 25 at 2 p.m), which hones in on the proper preparation of critical condiments such as classic béchamel, basic roux, brown gravy, tomato sauce, and deglazed drizzlables. Those that prefer their fare rolled like a mobster's carpet can partake in the sushi-making course (Thursday, September 30 at 6 p.m.). Or, strut into the holiday season with a level head and balanced belly by learning to save time and cut calories during a healthy eating course (Tuesday, October 12 at 6 p.m.). Kid-focused classes are also scheduled regularly, and vegetarian options are available upon request (you can discuss dietary options when calling to reserve your class slot).

The Silvertron Cafe provides a breakfast and lunch menu to match eclectic appetites. To inaugurate the a.m., opt for the Silvertron omelette, an eggy bundle of cheese, peppers, and onions served with either sausage or bacon plus grits and toast ($5.50). Silvertron's Cafe’s dinner and lunch choices (Tex-Mex and pasta plates) have won the hearts of career cowboys with penchants for parmesan lassos. Slurp creamy and peppery fettuccine all'alfredo ($10.50), or crunch into guacamole-laced steak fajitas ($12.95). The Cajun spiced black and blue burger ($9.50) and the chicken Caesar wrap ($8.95) reflect America's dual tastes for punching slabs of beef and naming chickens after emperors.

Quiznos' toastmasters fix a fleet of submarine sandwiches using butcher-quality meats, fresh toppings, and an array of artisan breads, which they artfully assemble as you watch. Signature subs (up to a $6.49 value, though prices may vary by location) come straight from Chef Zach Calkins's gourmet cookbook. The protein-packed prime rib & peppercorn swims with sautéed onions and mozzarella, and each Baja chicken sandwich—like a bouquet of roses set on fire—fuses the sweet and the smoky. The turkey ranch & swiss arrives piled high with lettuce, tomatoes, and red onions, and a convivial quartet of cured meats bathes in red-wine vinaigrette upon the classic italian sub. Feel free to trap condiments between nine-grain wheat, rosemary parmesan, italian herb, or italian white breads, or avoid the bun concept entirely by either ordering one of five chopped salads, such as the classic cobb, or ordering your secretary to send bread's calls straight to voicemail.
