This is hands down the best Subway I've ever been to. It's a WORLD of difference from the stinky, rotten, fly infested Walmart (Coralville) Subway. The business always look super clean, and the staff is the best Subway staff I've met.
This roadside eatery along US 6 in Tiffin is a good place to stop for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and ice cream, eat in or takeout. The place has outside takeout windows in front of the building, as well as an indoor counter and seating area (there's a Multicade game machine too), plus a drive-thru if you don't feel like leaving your vehicle. There are picnic tables outside the building. The food offerings include items such as breakfast sandwiches, burgers, hot & cold sandwiches, hot dogs, corn dogs, chicken, seafood, soups, salads, soft pretzels, and fried foods. They have a Super Walking Taco which is a bag of Doritos topped with seasoned ground beef, cheese sauce, lettuce, salsa, & sour cream. The frozen menu offerings include soft serve & hard packed ice cream, frozen yogurt, sundaes, clipper whippers (flurries), ice cream sodas, floats, shakes, malts, slushes, freezes, smoothies, ice cream novelties, pie ala mode and custom ice cream cakes by Kris. Before driving out to Des Moines, I stopped by Jon's Ice Cream Store & Restaurant for dinner takeout after a quick visit to Iowa City. I ordered the BBQ Special ($7 plus tax) which included a BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich, 2 side choices (I chose baked beans & potato salad), and regular soft drink (Diet Pepsi). The food I had was really good. The sandwich had very soft pulled pork in a sweet BBQ sauce topped with dill pickle chips on a toasted Kaiser bun. The sides, though in small cups were tasty. The baked beans had a sweet and smoky flavor with pieces pork in the mix. The potato salad had a firm texture, sweet and creamy. I did not get any ice cream on this visit since I was already drinking Mocha Frappuccino from Starbucks for my long road trip leg to Des Moines.
Was pleasently surprised tonight here. Got the mac and cheese burger. It was really really good!! Fries were great and beers cold.. nice job!!! Hitting on all cylinders!!!!
Throttle Down was a place that I promoted heavily when it first opened. I now have to take back all of the good things I said. Please don't go there because of any of my past recommendations. Throttle Down has been on a consistent downhill spiral for some time now. It's one thing to write a bad review after one bad visit but I'm up to three now and there won't be a 4th. In my original review I said that they should concentrate on being a restaurant and not a bar because the food was that good. It is evident that after (I believe was a change of ownership) it's all bar. Perhaps if one would drink enough the poor food and service would not be noticeable. I really pains me when a place that you loved becomes a place you can never go again.
Throttle Down is a great bar for a group of people. The environment was great with a lot of things going on. A ton of very nice Samsung TV's surround the bar for optimal sports viewing. The bar also has fun activities during the week. The food wasn't much more than simple bar food, which is the reasoning for my rating lacking the 5th star. The crowd was full of a lot of young adults vs. teenage and college students which was real nice. Will be back
