I don’t know if I’ve ever related to a TV character as much as I relate to Joey Tribbiani when he says his favorite food is sandwiches. Sandwiches are so good.

I ate at the new Jersey Mike’s Subs a few weeks ago and it reminded me….I haven’t been to Jersey Giant in a while…and that’s a travesty.

I was in Otsego last week for work and I was hungry. I passed the Jersey Giant in Plainwell on my way to Otsego and the idea of, “I really need to get to Jersey Giant” popped in to my head. As I made my way back to the highway to head back to Kalamazoo, I made a slight detour to grab a sub.

Jersey Giant Subs in Plainwell is on M-89/Allegan Street in Otsego Township near the Home Depot. The small building in front of Southwicks has been a few things over the years. Most recently it was an AT&T store then a vape shop. Last spring, Jersey Giant Subs remodeled the building an opened up the sub shop.

The thing about a sub shop is you don’t need much space. The restaurant is pretty small with just a few tables. The order counter in the back takes up a large portion of the building.

Jersey Giant is like a lot of sub shops but also pretty unique. The sandwiches are huge. The meat is cut fresh to order. The toppings are simple but fresh.

I put in an order for my usual #6…The Boss.

I really considered only getting a half sandwich but what fun is that. One of the unique thing about Jersey Giant is the size. The whole sandwich is 16″. I picked white bread.

The Boss is the Italian meats. Ham, capacola, prostini, salami, pepperoni and cheese. I like to keep my sandwiches simple with just lettuce and banana peppers plus the “Jersey Juice” and salt, pepper, and oregano.

I wasn’t paying attention as the cashier rang me up while the sandwich was being made so I missed out on the Giardiniera. I will put giardiniera on litteraly anything and it’s usually one of my favorite part of my Jersey Giant experience. The hot peppers are $1 extra though and I had already cashed out by the time it came to adding the veggies to my sandwich and didn’t want to be a bother and have them ring up $1.

I don’t think there’s anything Jersey Giant could do to make me say something bad. I’ve loved Jersey Giant from the moment I had it for the first time not long after moving to Lansing almost 14 years ago. The sandwiches are always delicious and there is no way to walk away hungry.
