Quiznos Sub, Chicago O'Hare airport

This was quite a yummy sandwich / submarine ... USD$10 and a few cents for a large bottle of water and a 12 inch sub ... Honey Mustard Chicken was my choice. Jaleno peppers (the yellow un's!) were really hot ... sort of like wasabi, it travels up your nose! Haha :-)
Getting used to paying 6% of tax on top of what-ever I am buying!

Wikipedia ...
Quiznos Sub is a fast-food sandwich franchise that specializes in toasted submarine sandwiches.
As of 2005, it is the second-largest submarine sandwich shop chain in North America, passing the older and slower-growing Blimpie, though still a fraction of the size of Subway.
There are over 5,000 shops located in the United States, over 300 in Canada, and 100 more scattered in 20 other countries including the United Kingdom, Ireland, Iceland, Aruba, Cayman Islands, Japan, Puerto Rico, Colombia, Turkey, El Salvador, Guam and Panama.
In 2002, Wendy's Supa Sundaes acquired the rights to the brand for franchises in Australia (and later, New Zealand) but were unsuccessful in launching the chain in either country. Quiznos no longer operates in either country.
All of Quiznos' sandwiches are served toasted, although they will be served untoasted at the customer's request. The best selling subs are the Classic Italian, the Mesquite Chicken with Bacon, the Prime Rib Cheesesteak, the Chicken Carbonara, and the Turkey, Ranch and Swiss sub.
While Quiznos did not originate the toasted sub, their rapid success is thought to have led to other chains following suit. Subway began offering toasted subs in 2004; Boston Market began toasting their sandwiches in 2005, and Blimpie began offering toasted subs in 2006.
