I only have one thing to say to the Jimmy John’s “Unwich” pictured above…. Hello, gorgeous! Jimmy John’s recently opened on Frederica Street in Owensboro and I couldn’t be happier. For one thing, I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a happier, friendlier group of workers in one place in my life. Owensboro’s Olive Garden is one of the only places I can think that rivals the friendliness.
Must be an awesome place to work for everyone to be so happy.
Something else they are is fast. “Freaky” fast. This speed is never more appreciated than it is at lunchtime. If someone is on a lunch break and has a limited time to eat, I cannot imagine a better option than Jimmy John’s.
If they were any faster, they’d meet you at your car when you pulled into the parking lot and hand you your order.
I know one thing, it’s an awesome place to eat. Unlike the vast majority of restaurants (fast food and otherwise), Jimmy John’s has clearly thought of those of us who have to eat gluten free – they have an option for the bread-less crowd and it’s called an Unwich.
You can choose any sandwich on the extensive menu and simply say you want it as an Unwich. It comes wrapped in a big beautiful piece of lettuce which is then wrapped in a colorful Jimmy John’s wrapper. It’s so neat and tidy you could even eat it on the run.
The fact that “Unwich” is listed on the menu and the fact that every worker I’ve encountered clearly knows what it is takes all guess work and clumsiness out of the equation.
Even their chips are gluten free!
I hear that their bread is also fantastic and I can say this… it smells like Heaven, so I have no doubts that it’s extra special.
Two of my daughters, two sons-in-law, and I have been going to Owensboro’s Jimmy John’s regularly. Truth be told, our little group is probably keeping them hopping. My oldest daughter, Emily, and I have to eat gluten free and having a new lunch option that actually caters to the gluten free community is something we appreciate greatly.
The unwich means a lot to both of us. I started off ordering (and loving) a different Unwich each time I went – but then I fell extra hard for the “Club Lulu” (Turkey breast, bacon, lettuce, tomato & mayo.) and have gotten it about 3 times in a row.
The great thing is that everything on their menu is fantastic, so whether you have to eat gluten free or not, you’ll find countless options. Great sandwiches AND great chips to go along with them.
Everything is ridiculously fresh and delicious – it blows me away every time. Their sweet tea is also uncommonly delicious.
Something else we all completely love at Jimmy John’s are their gigantic pickles. You’ll definitely want to order one of them along with the sandwich of your choice. They’re outstanding… and HUGE.
For a fast (freaky fast), fresh, and delicious lunch in Owensboro, you’ll want to try Jimmy John’s on Frederica… if you’re looking for a great place to eat gluten free in Owensboro, it’s an absolute must!

Owensboro’s Jimmy John’s is located at 2300 Frederica Street – right next to Walgreens…. and within walking distance of Starbucks. Just sayin’.

I’m so obsessed with this place lol…I’ve grabbed lunch through the drive-thru there twice this week! My current two fave unwiches are the Tuna and the Club Lulu, but you know I’m also crazy for the veggie. This place rocks!! 😀
I remember you were always obsessed with the Jimmy John’s in Evansville – you must be SO happy to have one in town now. Btw, you were right about the sprouts being amazing on the veggie. YUM!
