Quiznos – Toasting Dairy-Free Subs in the U.S. and Canada


Eat Dairy Free - Your Essential Cookbook for Everyday Meals, Snacks, and SweetsUpdated 2021! Quiznos is a fast food chain that specializes in toasted submarine sandwiches. They once had nearly 5000 stores, but after the recession, more than half of them closed. They now have over 2000 restaurants globally with a heavy concentration of locations in the U.S. and Canada.

Quiznos was the first sandwich chain to popularize the toasted sub. They have a similar style to Subway, with a build your own sandwich or salad process, but with their own selection of breads, meats, and sauces. We used to keep this post updated for the U.S. and Canada, but the Canadian corporate side has become a little lazy in keeping their information current. Consequently, the guide below was created from the U.S. information. Many of the options will be the same in Canada, but as always, verify before ordering!

Other Allergen Notes

  • Please note that the Au Jus, Red Wine Vinaigrette, Peppercorn Sauce, Meatballs, Lobster & Seafood Salad, and Chicken Noodle Soup are some surprise items that actually do contain dairy. The Au Jus might be dairy-free in Canada, but confirm their current recipe before ordering.
  • The above information is for the U.S., but might be helpful for Canada, too. We have added Canada to this listing in the past, but the allergen information for Canada is now very dated.
  • Pretty much all of their menu sandwiches come with cheese on them, but you can ask to omit it and make other dairy-free substitutions, if needed. Just keep in mind that their grill press probably sees a lot of cheese on it in a day. You might opt for a cold sub instead.
