The new Jimmy’s John’s sandwich shop in Crystal City quietly opened its doors to customers for the first time today.

In fact, the opening was so quiet that the Jimmy John’s web site doesn’t even list Arlington as one of the chain’s locations yet (a listing should be added tomorrow, we’re told). Nonetheless, a steady stream of excited customers streamed into the store around lunchtime today.

The restaurant, located at 2450 Crystal Drive, is open from 11:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. seven days a week (except major holidays). It offers corporate catering and delivery service to the Crystal City/Pentagon City area via phone at 571-257-7261.

Jimmy John’s has a short and simple menu but a large and loyal following, much like Chick-Fil-A, which just opened down the street.

    Between CFA and now this, I’m loving these new options in CC!

    I’m not a huge fan of Jimmy Johns, but it’s great to have this kind of option. I think it would do well in North Arlington as a low-cost lunch or dinner option as well.

    I am THRILLED about this – thanks for the news. Love their subs and their fast and friendly service. (Wow, I sound like their PR flak. I am really just a big fan.)

    I walked by there this morning but I didn’t see any tents.

    Good to see more places on that more deserted section of Crystal Drive. Hopefully they can get enough business being somewhat isolated.

  • That great news. I at at a Jimmy John’s in Seattle (I think). What I had was good. It’s nice to have more lunch options in Crystal City.

    The store location is a bit hidden when walking south on Crystal Drive, but hopefully more reatil will open there to help spur more traffic.

    not worth passing up Slice & Dice for? you mean that place is actually good? it looks like bland cafeteria food everytime i’ve seen co-workers eating it. in any event, this end of CC is going to see a lot of traffic pretty soon with a bdubs opening up in the same location soon. looking forward to having some other options on this side of crystal drive.
