Planet Sub Launching Next Week?

May 26, 2006 at 12:30pm By: Mr. Wilson Posted in The Lincolnite Blog

I don’t have the official word just yet, but I’ve heard that Planet Sub will open next week in the old Kep’s on P Street Downtown. This will be Planet Sub’s first Nebraska location. The menu (warning: PDF) looks promising. Prices range from $3.79 for a small sandwich (6”? 8”?) to about 8 bucks for a large (12”?).

If it does, indeed, open next week, I’ll try to check it out.

There was an ad in today’s Ground Zero (Lincoln Journal Star) for a free sub with the purchase of one at regular price.  The ad said Planet Sub was already open.

Somebody should tell that to the sign on their door…

A friend of mine swears by the chicken parmesan sub; he used to have his roommate in the dorms bring him sandwiches from Lawrence.

I went there for lunch, and it was a complete disaster.  When I (and the three people accompanying me) got there at about 11:30, there were about a half-dozen people there, and most of them had already received their food. We sat outside to wait, and upon realizing that they did not use the intercom to indicate order readiness, we went inside.  One person in our group received their order after about 20 minutes, another after 25, and another after about 35 minutes.  I, however, was still waiting.  Despite several reassurances that my order was ‘coming right out’, after 45 minutes I called it quits and got my money back. 

I can’t imagine any circumstances under which I would go back there.  I guess you shouldn’t pass judgment on a place that has only been open for a few days, but there was plenty of indication that this is a place that was and will be very poorly managed.  For example, the owner/manager was nowhere to be found.  Well, I don’t know that for certain, but if the owner was any of the people I saw working there, then my point is made (maybe he was the guy wearing the Hooters shirt making sandwiches?).  If you’re running or you own a restaurant, you should probably be there at least for the first week of lunch rush just to make sure everything is working fine.  This mistake, above all, is difficult to forgive.

Mr. Wilson, I saw you in line (I’ll introduce myself next time I see you, I know it’s creepy when someone knows who you are but you don’t know who they are), and thought about telling you how long you were going to wait, but I really wanted to read your take here.  How did things go?

Dave K, I went ahead and started a new entry about today’s experience. I think you’ll recognize some similarities wink
