American Subways Are NOT Underground Railroads, but a kind of fast food restaurant.

I took the pic slantingly so that I can include more in the pic. My camera is too old for a better and larger pic.
It does not have panarama. Sorry to have you look at the pic by slanting your head a little bit.

Beside the Subway, shaded by the lamp pole, is the China Dragon--a Chinese food restaurant--something like a buffet. You can eat whatever you see in food trays and however much your stomach permits. But you have to pay extra for the drinks.
Dynasty Buffet is the same, but iced water is free of charge.

Why are the chain stores named as Subway?
One American tells me that because the bread served there is long like a train underground.

Its called Subway because the sandwiches they sell are called submarine sandwiches (because they're long and cylindrical like subs)
