I am a huge fan of Sushi Nation, it's good sushi, extremely quick service (I call to make an order, and by the time I get there my order is usually ready), and the buy 2 get 1 free turns average prices into great prices.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

That's assuming you're eating alone.

Thatís why I said most people. A very small percentage of people buying sushi in stores are buying 3 rolls.

I beg to differ, unless you are buying in a grocery store most people are buying more than 1 roll.

Most people that go to aisle 9 and buy sushi there are going because of the sushi and not the grocery. 90% of sushi sales in aisle 9 are less then 3 rolls.

IDK what happens in aisle 9, but any guy who sits down for a meal of sushi eats at least 3 rolls.

1) I doubt you have any basis for this statistic
2) you cant compare a grocery store that sells sushi (yes, even if you only go for the sushi) to a store that is exclusively sushi

A sushi place next to the largest BMG dorm and 2 of the largest batei medrash is not really the best basis for comparison.

No, those people eat 6 rolls. (I'm not talking about the big rolls, I'm talking about the simple small rolls that are usually $6-9)

I feel sick after I eat more than 2 rolls. And I'm the same guy that gets 3-4 slices of pizza.

Asked for it a few times and they said they didn't have it, until finally they, but they never said that it has to be preordered.
It is amazing.
