Larry’s Giant Subs Now Offering Gluten-Free Subs

Earlier this week I found out that Cookie Momsters had partnered with Larry’s Giant Subs. I was so excited. I can’t remember the last time I had a sub. Yes, I have had sandwiches, but I miss the days of sandwiches ordered in inches.  There is just something about the nostalgia of subs for me.  In my youth, we would opt for the healthy alternative after volleyball, softball or basketball practice instead of heading out to McDonalds or Burger King.

The closest location to me is the Southside store across the street from Tinseltown movie theaters.  I was a little worried that they may just add the rolls without taking other precautions to avoid cross-contamination. I was happily surprised to find out that the cashier was knowledgeable on the subject and told me they wipe down the area and change their gloves.

Larry’s Giant Sub’s motto is “Home of the Big One.” The gluten-free sub rolls come in one size, 8 inches, and there are many sandwich options to choose from. Many of their meats are gluten-free. I opted for the turkey breast which was touted as gluten-free, hormone free, antibiotic free and vegetarian fed. I added lettuce, tomato, onion and mustard.  While in no way was this “THE BIG ONE” my sub was delicious. The bread, while a tad dry and in need of some salt, stayed together, had a nice consistency, wasn’t too thick and was toasty and warm. I love dipping my sub in hot sauce. They plenty of hot sauce options that I tried which helped spice it up and give it a little moisture.

As I expected there is a $2 up-charge which made the typical sub combo go from around $9.50 including tax to $11.53.  I am not a huge fan of up-charges, but I understand that because it is made locally and it is a specialty item that there is a need to charge an additional fee. A $1 up-charge is more appropriate in my opinion. I think Larry’s offers a lot of coupons in the mint, Jaguar Teal Deals, so I am going to be on the lookout for those.

According to Cookie Momsters here are the locations where you can find gluten-free rolls:

Palatka- not sure where the Palatka location is, it doesn’t show up on Larry’s site.

All in all I loved it and am excited that the Southside location also has a drive through for convenience. I will be back, but hopefully with a coupon in hand.

    I LOVE Larry’s! I found out about their GF options 2 years ago and have dined there semi-regularly ever since. Before, I was forced to order a salad which wasn’t very good. I wish other sub places would get on board, like Jersey Mike’s and Jimmy John’s. I hate ordering salads when I really want a sub and JJ’s lettuce wrap was very disappointing. Cookie Momsters does an AWESOME job of educating Larry’s franchise owners on proper GF preparation techniques.
