The Most Popular Items on the Jimmy John’s Unwich Menu

Let’s state the obvious: When you think of Jimmy John’s, you think of sandwiches.

Whether you prefer turkey, roast beef, a classic Italian combo, or a little bit of everything, you know what you’re in for when you visit – freshly sliced veggies, all-natural meats, and freaky fast service.

But there’s something else on the Jimmy John’s menu that, while not as widely known as their classic subs, is just as good.

It’s got all the flavor of a sub but with a fraction of the calories. So what is this mystical item? They call it ‘the Unwich.’

An Unwich contains all your favorite sandwich ingredients but is wrapped in lettuce instead of bread.

But why choose an Unwich over a regular sandwich?

For starters, it’s a great option for those who don’t eat gluten or want to lessen their carb intake.

It’s also a great option for anyone who’s looking for a lighter meal.

Jimmy John’s uses iceberg lettuce to wrap its Unwiches, which is low in calories and contains vitamin C, calcium, and other essential vitamins and minerals.

Any of Jimmy John’s sandwiches can be made as an Unwich. So, which options should you try, and which should you skip? Read on and find out!

19. The Veggie

The Unwich at the bottom of our list is The Veggie.

It’s the only vegetarian Unwich offered at Jimmy John’s and is full of (you guessed it) veggies.

The Veggie Unwich comes with cucumbers, avocado spread, lettuce, tomato, double cheese, and mayo.

The only semi-positive statement I have for the Veggie Unwich is that it’s an option if you don’t eat meat.

Otherwise, this is a menu item I highly recommend you skip.

It’s uninspired, boring, and will leave you still feeling hungry. Even the double portion of cheese can’t hide the lack of flavor in this Unwich.

If you’re looking for a vegetarian option, you’re better off going somewhere else and ordering a salad or other plant-based dish that will fill you up.

A Veggie Unwich contains 440 calories, 38g fat, and 18g protein.

18. Totally Tuna

The Totally Tuna Unwich features house-made tuna salad, lettuce, tomato, and cucumber.

The tuna salad itself is the best part of this Jimmy John’s lettuce wrap.

The tuna salad recipe contains soy sauce, giving it extra umami in all the right places.

Besides the tuna salad, though, this Unwich falls flat.

With lettuce, tomato, cucumber, and no additional sauce, each bite lacks any zest or exciting flavor.

If you’re a tuna lover, don’t be too disappointed – another tuna-based Unwich is coming up that’s worth a try!

A Totally Tuna Unwich contains 270 calories, 21g fat, and 12g protein.

17. Big John

The Big John Unwich is made with hand-sliced roast beef, lettuce, tomato, and mayonnaise.

Guests enjoy this Unwich because it provides meaty, strong flavors while tasting light and healthy, thanks to the iceberg lettuce wrapped around it.

When deciding if this Unwich is for you, it comes down to how you feel about Jimmy John’s roast beef.

Some guests find it too bland, while others think it has the perfect amount of beefy flavor.

Since the star of this Unwich is the roast beef itself, you’ll only enjoy this option if you love Jimmy John’s roast beef.

16. J.J.B.L.T.

The J.J.B.L.T Unwich is a classic BLT, minus the bread, plus lots of extra lettuce.

It features a generous portion of applewood smoked bacon, lettuce, tomato, and mayo.

Without bread, the J.J.B.L.T. feels a bit incomplete –  it’s got plenty of crunch in the bacon and lettuce but nothing soft to add another textural element.

While I think this sandwich is better with bread, the J.J.B.L.T. Unwich is a good option if you’re craving something salty sans the extra carbs.

A J.J.B.L.T. Unwich contains 360 calories, 31g fat, and 15g protein.

15. The Pepe

The Pepe Unwich is simple and gets the job done.

Jimmy John’s take on the beloved ham and cheese sandwich features hand-sliced smoked ham, provolone cheese, mayo, lettuce, and tomato.

This Unwich won’t change your life, but it’s a reliable, nostalgic option if you’re looking for a lighter version of the classic ham and cheese sandwich.

The Pepe Unwich contains 370 calories, 28g fat, and 21g protein.

14. Turkey Tom

The Turkey Tom Unwich is another simple and classic combination.

Featuring hand-sliced turkey breast, lettuce, tomato, and mayo, this wrap has no frills but will leave you feeling satisfied.

While the Turkey Tom Unwich is always a good option on the go, its simple ingredient list makes it far cheaper to make at home.

I recommend spending your money on one of Jimmy John’s more unique Unwiches.

A Turkey Tom Unwich contains 250 calories, 17g fat, and 15g protein.

13. Hunter’s Club

The Hunter’s Club Unwich comes with a double serving of roast beef, provolone cheese, mayo, lettuce, and tomato.

The double serving of roast beef combined with fresh lettuce and tomato, and creamy provolone cheese makes this Unwich reminiscent of a cheeseburger.

Thanks to the double meat, this Jimmy John’s wrap will fill you up more than the other Unwiches I’ve ranked so far.

Add pickles and onions for the ultimate burger Unwich experience!

A Hunter’s Club Unwich contains 480 calories, 32g fat, and 42g protein.

12. Club Tuna

The Club Tuna Unwich features tuna salad, double cheese, cucumber, lettuce, and tomato.

With two servings of provolone, this Unwich is creamy and flavorful while staying light and refreshing.

Cucumbers and the lettuce wrap add a satisfying crunch. Even if you wouldn’t normally go for a tuna sub, I recommend giving this one a try.

Add bacon for smokiness and an additional crunch!

A Club Tuna Unwich contains 500 calories, 40g fat, and 29g protein.

11. Ultimate Porker

If you’re worried about your Unwich lacking flavor, consider ordering this lettuce wrap.

With hand-sliced ham, crispy applewood smoked bacon, lettuce, tomato, and mayo wrapped in iceberg lettuce; this Unwich is an elevated BLT.

Even though the Ultimate Porker features two types of smokey pork, it’s kept light and refreshing with all that lettuce and tomato.

An Ultimate Porker Unwich contains 340 calories, 25g fat, and 20g protein.

9. Billy Club

The Billy Club Unwich has something for everybody – it’s salty, smokey, tangy, and fresh.

This Unwich is made with roasted beef, ham, provolone, mayo, Dijon mustard, lettuce, and tomato.

That extra salt from the smoked ham amps up the meatiness of the roast beef, making for a hearty yet light meal.

All that goodness is rounded out by sharp Dijon. If you’re a mustard fan, the Billy Club is a must-try.

A Billy Club Unwich contains 460 calories, 31g fat, and 37g protein.

8. Country Club

Turkey, ham, provolone, lettuce, tomato, and mayo – this Unwich is a crowd-pleaser.

The Country Club is one of Jimmy John’s most popular Unwiches for its simplicity.

No matter what your likes or dislikes are when it comes to sandwiches, you’ll most likely enjoy this one.

If you want to jazz it up a little, add some bacon for the classic “club” experience.

Avocado, turkey, and double cheese make this wrap a little more hearty, while cucumber and lettuce add a nice crunch and freshness.

With two different deli meats and classic Italian ingredients, this Unwich is packed with flavor.

Many guests recommend adding hot peppers to your Unwich for a tangy, spicy bite.

2. The J.J. Gargantuan

“Go big or go home” is what they say. And when it comes to Unwiches, I have to agree.

The J.J. Gargantuan is in a class of its own. Meat-wise, it’s packed with salami, capocollo, turkey, roast beef, and ham.

Also featured are fresh onion, lettuce, tomato, and provolone.

It’s then topped with mayo, oil, vinegar, and an oregano-basil blend.

If you’re looking to get a good bang for your buck, the J.J. Gargantuan is the way to go.

The lettuce, tomato, and onion manage to keep the whole wrap feeling fresh and light, despite the colossal amount of deli meat inside.

1. Spicy East Coast Italian

Finally, the best Jimmy John’s Unwich is the Spicy East Coast Italian.

This Unwich comes with double salami, double capocollo, and provolone.

It’s also packed with fresh, hand-sliced tomato, lettuce, hot peppers, and onion.

Finally, it’s finished with a house-made oil & vinegar blend, mayo, and a sprinkle of oregano-basil.

I love the Spicy East Coast Italian because of its variety – it has the makings of a classic Italian sub but also adds exciting, unexpected elements.

The hot Jimmy Peppers amp up the natural spiciness of the salami and capocollo.

This Unwich keeps from getting too spicy thanks to the addition of mayo and creamy provolone.

In addition, the lettuce wrap keeps everything refreshing and light.

If you’re looking for a unique Unwich that you won’t soon forget, give the Spicy East Coast Italian a try!
