A Texas Subway employee has revealed what some of the chain’s meat looks like before making the sandwich – and it’s turning a few social media users off their lunch.
TikToker @ Travis2official works at a secret location of the sandwich chain and this month he shared three behind the scenes videos of himself cooking steak, tuna and chicken teriyaki in the kitchen.
While many viewers aren’t surprised that some of the meat looks less appetizing before it reaches the final dish – and have no intention of stopping eating at Subway – others say the clips “ ruined ” fast food for them.
Revealed: TikToker @ Travis2official works in a Texas Subway and shared a behind-the-scenes video of how some of the meat is prepared
Meaty: the steak is compressed into a piece of meat in a plastic package
Behind the scenes: It is crumbled into smaller pieces by hand, which he demonstrates
What You Eat: The steak comes in items such as the DrayPotle Steak sandwich, the Steak & Cheese sandwich, and the Chipotle Southwest Steak & Cheese wrap
Travis’ first video was posted April 3 and featured a look at Subway’s steak, used in items such as the DrayPotle Steak sandwich, the Steak & Cheese sandwich, and the Chipotle Southwest Steak & Cheese wrap.
“Just to let you guys know what the subway steak looks like. Behind closed doors, ”Travis wrote.
First he shows a piece of meat that is sealed in a plastic package. When he opens it and throws it into a bowl, the steak is compressed into two gigantic pieces that are indistinguishable from it.
With gloves on, he breaks the pieces of steak apart and shows that it is crumbly and falls into smaller pieces.
The video has gone viral with 7.9 million views and 1.1 million likes.
TikTok users are no doubt interested in the candid take on Subway food, although responses to it have been mixed.
Ew! Some were shocked and said they wish they had never seen it – and some compared it to cat food
Whatever! But many commenters have not bothered at all saying they don’t really care what it looks like because it tastes good
Some were shocked and said they wish they had never seen it.
‘TikTok is ruining fast food for me,’ wrote one.
Subway employees should stop posting. I don’t need to know what’s in it, ”said another.
A few compared the crumbly pieces of steak to cat food, while another said they wouldn’t even feed it to their dog.
But many commenters have not bothered at all, saying they don’t really care what it looks like because it tastes good.
“Haven’t killed me yet,” one wrote.
Several have pointed out that most people who go to Subway have no illusions that they are getting steakhouse-quality beef.
“Do you all expect to have a cow in the back?” one asked.
Next: Following the success of the video, Travis has uploaded a sequel showing how Subway’s tuna is made
Preparing food: It is also sealed in a bag, which Travis empties into a bowl and uses his gloves to take it apart
Mixed: He then empties a large bag of mayonnaise into the bowl and mixes the ingredients together
Tuna Time: Many commenters claimed not to be surprised by what the tuna looked like, saying it looks like what they have at home
“Wait until he finds out how turkey gets to the supermarket,” another joked.
Following the success of the video, Travis uploaded a sequel showing how Subway’s tuna is made.
It also comes sealed in a bag, which Travis empties into a bowl and uses his gloves to part.

Many commentators claimed not to be surprised by what the tuna looked like, saying it resembles what they have at home.
“I don’t understand the matter,” one wrote.
“I expected that,” said another, while a third said, “That’s what tuna should look like.”
Last Meal: Finally, Travis shared a video of making the chain’s chicken teriyaki
Tossing: involved emptying a bag of grilled chicken pieces and a bag of teriyaki sauce into a bowl and mixing it with his gloved hands
Did you all expect it to be caught and delivered by Jesus or something? It’s a subway, of course they won’t have perfectly made food, ”commented another.
In fact, more people were put off by the fact that Travis wasn’t wearing his mask correctly and it didn’t cover his nose while preparing food. They also pointed out that using his phone when preparing food was unsanitary.
Finally, Travis shared a video of making the chain chicken teriyaki, throwing a bag of grilled chicken pieces and a bag of teriyaki sauce into a bowl and mixing them with his gloved hands.
Again, commentators didn’t usually seem bothered by the way the food is prepared, but more upset about Travis’ improper mask wearing.
