I've never had their sandwiches, but they have a nice selection of vegetarian options, all of which seem to come piled high on homemade bread.
What I've ordered is the Southwest Salad, and I was reasonably impressed considering the source. It was large, and covered in bean salad, corn salsa, cheddar, avocado and a bunch of other veggies. It came with a creamy southwest style dressing on the side, and a chunk of fresh bread.
Picture from the Specialty's Website. The real salad is pretty close to this, but served on a big plate and not quite so tidy.They also make a good looking vegan salad that I haven't had, but appreciated on the menu.
I really appreciate when a chain manages to prepare reasonably priced, minimally processed, regular healthy type food, and this place manages that quite nicely.
