For living through 2020, we deserve this. Thank you Publix.

For Chicken Tenders Pub Sub lovers, step up to the deli counter to get your sandwich for $6.99 until Wednesday. It only saves you about $2, but for some reason it brings joy and happiness that feels like Christmas. It’s like how Gasparilla is our excuse to drink in public at noon. You only save a couple bucks but Pub Sub sales are the green light one needs to justify eating an enormous amount of fried chicken.

Some go the traditional route with a simple mix of lettuce, tomato and ranch. But I like the more creative spins with buffalo sauce… and one listener even said some Publix stores will make it a Chicken Parmesan if you ask. And by the way, Pub Sub it like a pro. When Publix puts their sandwiches on sale, especially this one, the lines at lunchtime can be long. Order online! They’ll have it waiting for you at the time you specify. Nothing brings me joy like waltzing into Publix, seeing the long line, grabbing my Pub Sub and heading to a 10 items or less register and completing my entire visit in less than 2 minutes!

Geno’s 10 Favorite Sandwiches in the Tampa Area

They’re so simple to make in a hurry, but these Tampa area spots take the sandwich to the next level, creating a masterpiece between those slices of bread.  Now before anyone complains, the Chicken Tenders Pub Sub I always rave about when it’s on sale didn’t make the list but it’s certainly an honorable mention. As are the great subs at Brocato’s in Tampa or the legendary Cubans we have all over Tampa Bay. But the Cuban sandwiches deserve their own countdown I’ll do at some point. Here are the 10 who made the cut!
