Blimpie -- South Burlington, Vermont
I know what you are thinking . . . with all the great delis and places to get a sandwich in the Champlain Valley, why choose . . . Blimpie? Simple, they're the best. Yeah, Yeah, Yeah it's a chain, but the local ownership makes this Blimpie way more than the average sub shop or for that matter sub, way more, if you get my meaning. Ron and Shelley are fabulous! Show me a place to get a sandwich where even if you haven't been in for weeks or months, the moment you step to the counter the person waiting on you says, "veggie sub on wheat, no tomatoes, extra hots" and I'll show you Blimpie in South Burlington, I'm amazed every time. The place is kept clean and the staff is always friendly, helpful, and will make sure you have everything you want or need, "and would you like a cookie with that?, got to love the upsell. If you go with the meal deal and the aforementioned large veggie you can get out of Blimpie for less than $10 and still have a couple of bucks left over for a cookie.
