Review of Quiznos Toasty Bullet Sandwiches

Taste Test: Quizno's Toasty Bullet Subs

It's a well documented fact that I'm a fiend for sandwiches; likewise, PartySugar loves them, especially warm, toasty paninis. Naturally, when Quizno's launched its new Toasty Bullets, it wasn't long before we went to our neighborhood outpost to check them out.

Customers can get a Toasty Bullet in five different flavors: Italian, Big Kahuna Tuna, Pesto Turkey, Turkey Club, and Beef, Bacon & Cheddar. The snack-sized sandwiches are about eight inches long and two inches wide, cost a dollar or two less than the average Quizno's sandwich, and come in a nifty paper pocket to assist with easy, on-the-go eating. Did any of these stun us with their bold flavors — or should you be dodging these bullets? Find out after the jump.

Turkey Club: This sandwich contained extremely thinly-sliced turkey, bacon, mozzarella cheese, red wine vinaigrette, mayonnaise, lettuce, and tomatoes, but the turkey tasted like absolutely nothing, and we had to fish to find bits of bacon.

Pesto Turkey: Our favorite of the five, this sub was stuffed with turkey, mozzarella, red wine vinaigrette, pesto, lettuce, and tomato. While we weren't impressed by the turkey and wished the sub were a little toastier and plumper, the pesto added plenty of flavor.

Big Kahuna Tuna: With overly creamy tuna salad, cheddar, banana peppers, lettuce and tomato, the BKT was really a glorified tuna melt, and one that could just as well have been made at home. But since we thought the canned tuna was the highest-quality of the meats, this came in as the second favorite.

Italian: Pepperoni, capicola, ham, mozzarella, red wine vinaigrette, lettuce, and tomato sound enticing, but it was the saddest sandwich of them all. It hardly contained any filling, and the proteins possessed none of the qualities that we so love in cured meats; instead, they all tasted like bad ham.

Beef, Bacon & Cheddar: This self-explanatory hoagie had mayo and mustard but no veggies. The bacon bits were either nonexistent or overpowering, and while the yellow mustard overwhelmed the sandwich, the cheddar was barely discernible.

In conclusion, these sandwiches could've been toasted longer and should have higher-quality (and more) ingredients. They'd be okay in a harried pinch, but considering how gross we felt after eating them, they won't be a part of our regular lunch list. Have you tried any of Quizno's Toasty Bullets? What's your opinion of them?

I think you must've hit an inferior Quiznos. I have Torpedoes (or the smaller Bullets) all the time and they're very tasty...enough meat, and the ingredients are fresh. Turkey Club is the way to go!

Are these replacing those Torpedo sandwiches they tried a while back?Quizons is pretty much the best of the sub sandwich chain stores. But I guess Subway is doing a good job marketing (ie. the stupid "Five Dollar Footlong" song that will now be stuck in your head) and is forcing them to try weird stunts like this.

The Quiznos by me is great, and their sandwiches are always very fresh and heartily made - I'm sorry yours is so pathetic, Yum; they're quite good sandwiches at other locations (and mine even delivers!! woohoo!).Spectra - the name sounds even dirtier if you've seen the original commercial for them (they don't air it any more, at least by me in the NYC suburbs in Jersey). It was the oven talking to the sandwich guy, telling him to "put it in me, Scott"!! Absolutely hilarious but so raunchy.

Our Quiznos here is much like the one Yum went to. Sparse, gross, etc. I got the turkey one and didn't care for it. No thanks, I'll stick to Firehouse Subs.

LOL @ Spectra - I agree with you on that!!! ;) Anyway, I have never had any issues with Quiznos turkey. I think they taste way better than Subway's turkey (which tastes like rubber!).

I'm sorry, I can't get past the name..."Toasty Bullet" sounds like it should be the name of a vibrator, not a sandwich. I probably won't be trying one of these :)

I have found the key to remember when eating at any Quizznos is that they are indeed independently owned and operated and I have found whole locations that suck and have poorer ingredients (for example wilted lettuce or veggies) and other locations that really rock and deliver great food so I think it would be worth giving them a shot at another Quizznos if you didn't enjoy them or didn't think they were made well!!!

I love the Beef Bacon and Cheddar in the Quiznos Torpedo and the Toasty Bullet. You can't go wrong with all that melted cheese - and BACON....

my friend and i bought the turkey club and the pesto one, we loved them. they were stuffed and they tasted great. the quiznos we go to is really nice and we have never had a problem with the food so maybe we just got lucky.

I'm not one to complain about food (especially when BACON is involved), but I would have taken those sandwiches back to the store where you bought them from and given them a few suggestions as to where to stick them. Seriously.
