Subway Thinks We Haven’t Had Enough of the Oven Roasted Chicken, Features it as June’s $5 Footlong


Last month it was the $3 Six-Inch Select sub. The month before that? Also the $3 Six-Inch Select sub (it was March’s, too).

But it seems all the Oven Roasted Chicken love still isn’t over, as Subway has just revealed its favorite poultry dish as this month’s featured $5 Footlong. The sub boasts only 320 calories and features the eponymous oven-roasted chicken and spinach plus your choice of bread and fixings.

Now there’s nothing wrong with this per se, except that with the ORC moving up in the world, there’s no new $3 Six-Inch to take its place. I just wish we could finally have a $5 Footlong worth being excited about (Chipotle Steak and Cheese with Avocado, I’m totally looking at you).

No surprise here. Chicken is less expensive than the other meats on their menu, so offering that as their advertised special keeps people buying what is probably the sandwich with the highest profit margin. Doesn’t matter much to me. No self-respecting foodie would ever eat at Subway. At least none from Philadelphia, where we know what a REAL sub tastes like… and we call it a Hoagie. 🙂

I really don’t know why they even call them subs. Yeah, I get it, they use “submarine” style rolls. But Subway subs are essentially your basic sandwich that anyone can make at home, tossed on top of oblong bread.
