Day 316: Lunch in Bethesda….in a Jiffy!

Jiffy Shoppes Chicken Sub!

Jiffy Shoppes Subs and Pizza

We’ve all been there.  We get so hungry we just have to eat and eat NOW.  A friend of mine is fond of saying “I’m so hungry my stomach is gnawing on my liver!” The visual of that always helps keep my appetite in check but I digress.  My moment came this week after dropping our dog off at Bone Jour for a spa treatment (a superwash and cut).  Across the street is a new subs and pizza joint to the Bethesda scene – Jiffy Shoppes Subs and Pizza at 4924 St. Elmo Avenue.  The original Jiffy’s is located in Suitland, MD and was started by the Bethesda location owner’s father and uncle more than 30 years ago.  The two-family Greek tradition continues in fine fashion here with great pizza, gyros, and subs being some of the main attractions. I ordered a chicken breast sub that was tender and juicy.  It was complimented with fries that gave McDonald’s a run for their money, cooked to perfection – crispy and hot!     ~Brian
