No doubt if you watch enough national sporting events as I do, you see commercials for restaurants that aren't yet in our area. One place that I always wondered about was Jersey Mike's Subs. Eastern Iowa is home to plenty of national sandwich chains like Subway, Quiznos, Firehouse Subs, and Jimmy Johns. Well, you can soon add Jersey Mike's to that list as several locations are set to open soon in eastern Iowa.

A listener actually clued us into the new location coming to Marion, Iowa. It will be right next to the brand new Pizza Ranch on the east side of Marion along Highways 151 and 13. The official address is 6095 Carlson Way. But after some investigation on the Jersey Mike's website, we discovered another eastern Iowa restaurant opening soon at 3500 Dodge Street in Dubuque.

Jersey Mike's currently has four Iowa locations that are open. They are located in Davenport, Clive, and two in the Des Moines area. So what is Jersey Mike's known for? It's gotta be 'The Juice'! According to their website, The Juice is a red wine vinegar and olive oil mixture that you can get on your sandwich. They call an exclamation point on any sandwich. Their menu features cold and hot subs and even some breakfast options too.

We do not have exact dates yet when the new stores in Marion and Dubuque will officially open. Signs on the door of the Marion location just say "coming soon." I for one can't wait!
