Metcalf's has an outstanding selection of subs and wraps - I think there are nearly 30 choices on their board, and you can order extra items (or deletions). They also have a nice variety of salads.

I went once, and they had burned the bacon for a sandwich. I smelled of it for hours. My sandwich smelled of it, and I have not been interested enough to go back.
