The one thing you should never order at Subway © Hearst Communications, Inc. All rights reserved The one thing you should never order at Subway If you can walk past a Subway without popping in to buy a foot long, you deserve a medal. It's almost like they pump that sweet-but-savoury-fresh-bread smell outside the restaurants so you can't help but want to eat one.

And while that's all well and good, there is one thing on the menu that you should try and avoid ordering, after an employee and Reddit user Nope_Nope_Nope revealed the sandwich filling you should never ask for.

The 'Sandwich Artist' explained that he’s been employed at Subway for a year and, based on his experience, customers should be wary of having meatballs.

*Immediately regrets the double cheese meatball marinara we always order*

He explains: "Early mornings, ask if the meatballs are fresh. You'll be told yes no matter what, but if they have to go check it's actually a guaranteed no... they’re checking to see if they can pass as fresh. Trust me, meatballs are annoying to prep, we know damn well if they're fresh or not without needing to check."

"Otherwise just be careful about the roast beef, because that tends to go bad the quickest. If the American cheese [container] is almost empty, there's a good chance the cheese is soggy. Not a big issue, but... still."

The Subway employee also went on to explain what the best way to get a free sub at the restaurant is, adding: "Complain. Look really distressed and disgusted with how they’re making your sandwich. Order something, and take it to your seat, open it…walk back and tell them it’s not made right."

"Nine times out of 10, they’ll just make you a free courtesy sandwich. This won’t work everywhere, but at our store, we’re trained to not argue back and to just give them a second sandwich for free."

Good to know (just don't go for meatballs or beef).
