Restaurant Review: Jersey Mike’s Subs at home in Branson

Restaurant Review: Jersey Mike’s Subs at home in Branson

If the Ole Seagulls recent experience at Branson’s Jersey Mike’s Subs is any indication, they have taken the advice of Peter Cancro, the man who started the tradition that has become know as Jersey Mike’s to heart. That advice is, “We’re only as good as the sandwich that comes across the counter and the smiling face that prepares and serves it.”

Let’s take the sandwich first. The Ole Seagull ordered their signature sub “The Original, #13 on the menu. It comes in three sizes “Mini” about 4 inches, “Regular” about 7 inches, and “Giant” 14 inches on a choice of breads that are baked fresh each day in the shop. The “Regular” on Rosemary Parmesan Bread sounded great.

All the meats and cheeses used in their sandwiches are displayed in a deli style display. Each meat or cheese going on the sandwich is taken from the case and hand sliced. In the case “The Original” that is generous portions generous portions of ham, prosciuttini, cappacuolo, Salami, and Pepperoni, and Provolone cheese. You can combine that with your choice of freshly sliced veggies such as onions, tomatoes, lettuce, yes they hand slice their own lettuce, pickles, peppers etc. and condiments.

Another way is to have it topped “Mikes Way.” Mikes Way is with onions, lettuce, tomatoes, vinegar, oil and their special blend of spices. The Ole Seagull has had of “The Originals” over the past week, Mikes Way and he loved them both. I have also had the Grilled Pastrami Reuben with Swiss Cheese, sauerkraut and thousand island dressing and it was great.

Another feature is the fact that with their hot “cheese steaks sandwiches,” are actually grilled on a grill and not micro waved or taken out of a dish of hot water or gravy. Don’t eat “red meat,” no problem; grilled chicken can be substituted for the steak on all their “cheese steak” sandwiches.

Branson’s Jersey Mike’s Subs serves wraps, soup, and salads. In addition any regular sized sub can be made into a wrap or served in a tub, with a fork and knife- without bread. They also have daily specials including the “regular” sub of the day, chips and a drink for about $5.99.

On both of the occasions that the Ole Seagull was in the restaurant one or both of the owners and operators, Chris and Alison Pfatenhauer were present and actively running the store. From the first step in the store, with its bright clean appearance, to the quality look of their sliced tomatoes and veggies and the enthusiastic, caring, smiling attitude of the staff you can tell that it is a reflection of the commitment of the owners.

Jersey Mike’s Subs, located at the east end of Vista Plaza, 2005 West State Hwy 76, is open from 11:00 to 9:00 seven days a week. Call ahead for take out at 417-239-3840 or fax in your order at 417-239-3862.

A great sandwich coming across the counter, in a bright, pleasant and clean environment, that is served by enthusiastic smiling people. Jersey Mike’s Mr. Cancro couldn’t ask for more and neither could an Ole Seagull.

Isn't Mike also the new head Baseball Coach at College of the Ozarks? Last year he also started, and was responsible for the new Branson Area little league baseball team called the Crusaders. They love him. This is the team that went to Dallas, Texas and Cooperstown, New York to play baseball this summer as one of the Missouri representatives. The guy is good for the town and it's children. Good for C of O baseball and evidently good for making good eatin' stuff too.

Jersey Mike's Subs is the name of the business. You have described Chris Pfatenhauer who owns the store with his wife, Alison. You are right what a combination!

Well I have to agree with the old seagull on this one. Jersey Mikes subs are great! My g/f and I went there today for lunch and we shared a giant chilpolte beef steak sandwich. DAMN good eats! Also got 2 drinks and 2 bags of chips, all for a little more then $13. Cant beat that with a stick.
For desert we walked next door to MaggieMoos. I have lived in Branson for 4 years and that was my first trip to Maggies. I had a butterpecan cone. perfect lunch with my honey.
