I've traveled the country a few times, and when driving for long periods (10+ hrs) Subway has always been the best choice. The little things always irked me, but with nothing else to compare it to, I just went with it.
Then I got a Publix sub.
The whole "meat on everything" thing in the US isn't so weird if you're used to it, but after visiting France and Australia, it is a little weird. Everywhere there had AMAZING vegetarian options. Stuff I've never heard or thought of. Then you come back to America, and I ask for potatoes.. comes with bacon on it. Onion soup? Made with beef broth. etc. Oh well, saves me money to cook for myself anyway.
My previous job involved a lot of travel, often to tiny, remote towns. On several occasions Subway was literally the only option for a restaurant (and once not even that - it was gas station food or nothing). People there grew to despise
Subway because they were forced to eat there so much. Now that I'm further removed from that time, I can enjoy Subway here and there. The ones in my town aren't bad, service-wise. I'll only bother going there if I have a coupon, though.
I am not a vegetarian myself, but I can empathize with how difficult it must be to find varied, good vegetarian options. Not that this is nearly as big of a struggle, but I hate potatoes. You can't avoid them at restaurants - they come with just about everything! I wonder they are as ubiquitous internationally.
