Donatos has added a new Buffalo Chicken Sub to its lineup of oven-baked, stuffed buns. Turns out its pizza-making competitor, Domino's, has already been there, done that.

Sure, other restaurants and chain sandwich shops around town make Buffalo chicken subs too, but it's time for a sub-making pizza place smackdown, don't ya think?

Cost per sub:

Donatos: $5, for a limited time

Domino's: $6 for a sub that appeared slightly smaller

Chicken out:

Donatos: Marinated and baked in their "own zingy Buffalo wing sauce." About the quality you'd expect from a $5 sub.

Domino's: Plain baked chicken doused in hot sauce at some much later point, seemingly. Same passable quality.

Sauce of choice:

Donatos: Ranch dressing

Domino's: Blue cheese sauce, hot sauce

Standard extras:

Donatos: Provolone, tomatoes, shredded lettuce, green peppers

Domino's: Provolone, cheddar cheese, onions

Bun bake-off:

Donatos: Baked, but not crunchy. Topped with baked-on shredded cheddar.

Domino's: Crunchy, somewhat-burnt exterior yielded to a light and airy interior.

Love at first bite?

Donatos: Tasty sub, but you could've fooled us on the Buffalo chicken part. It was spicy, but not hot saucey, and dominated by the ranch dressing taste. The veggies were nice, though.

Domino's: There's that hot sauce taste. Not much chicken in this one (the bread is the dominant element), but at least the blue cheese and hot sauce make it certifiably Buffalo-y.

The Winner!

Donatos. It might have tasted more like slightly spicy chicken than Buffalo chicken, but the veggies and bun gave it an edge over Domino's more-authentic-but-sub-par sub.
