At only $3 a pop, I tried a few of the five varieties available of Quizno’s Bullets, which are the same offerings for the $4 foot-long Torpedoes.
I’m not big on turkey but I thought I would give the Pesto Turkey Bullet a try first.
The sandwich with thin-sliced turkey, red wine vinaigrette, mozzarella cheese, lettuce and tomatoes, topped with basil pesto and toasted in a ciabatta bread was all snuggled in its own paper sleeve for on-the-go munching.
Perfect for when I eat at my desk while checking emails, messages, etc….
The warm and toasty 8 inches of sandwich was just enough to save room for chips and a drink or if you’re feeling really ravenous, another sandwich.
Even though this is the first one I tried, I must say it is my favorite and all because of the pesto.
The fresh ingredients were great but the pesto really brought it all together. I usually like to add some peperoncinis or some of their Batch 81 sauce, which has a nice kick to it, to my sandwiches but the pesto sauce was so flavorful it didn’t need anything else and I didn’t want to ruin it.
The second variety I tried was the Italian with pepperoni, spicy capicola, ham, mozzarella cheese and red wine vinaigrette, and chopped lettuce and tomatoes.
I liked the spicy capicola and ham, but the vinaigrette didn’t impress as much as the pesto did so this seemed like a basic Italian sub.
The next sandwich I tried was the Beef, Bacon and Cheddar with thin sliced roast beef, crispy pieces of bacon, mayonnaise and cheddar.
I liked that there wasn’t much mayo in this sandwich because I hate when I have to wipe off excess mayo that’s oozing out the side of a sandwich or burger. If anything I would prefer no mayo.
The roast beef and cheddar was nice but it was the crispy bacon, not greasy either, that made this one my next favorite.
There is still a Turkey Club and Big Kahuna Tuna that I will try next, but so far these little bullet-sized sandwiches are worth their $3 price tag.
For a few bucks more you can make it a combo with chips and a drink.
