A sub is a sub is a sub. I see little difference between Firehouse Subs and Quizno's---EXCEPT for the fact Firehouse has nearly UNLIMITED sauces to "experiment" with and endless varieties to suit one's taste. This visit the employee was knowledgeable and offered valuable advice to me---a novice---about they types and styles to add to my sub. I like spicy... More

I had the premiun roast beef sub on wheat . It was served hot with a pickle. The beef was tender and flavorful and was topped with provolone cheese. Firehouse Sub is a great place for the family. It's bright and open and is decorated with local firehouse gear. The servers fast and friendly. My wife and I will be... More

Visited here as we were going through the city and staying over. I was the only one in line and I had to wait 20 minutes for my single sub to be made. I took it back to the hotel which was only 3 minutes away and opened it up to find the bun soppy with the ranch dressing, there... More

It's a touch screen and very retro/modern all at once. Only complaint- the cherry limeade was icky. I think the "mix" in the machine wasn't set right. It was... More

They have one of the 150+ option drink machines which is a favorite of my kids. There meetball subs are really good. It also... More

I had been hearing a lot about this place and thought I'd give it a try. Food quality was ok but I personally thought it was a bit of a rip off for what you got. Way over priced and there was hardly anything on the sub bun. Still, I have pretty high standards for a sub sandwich and maybe... More

I work very close to Firehouse Subs and I usually hit them once a week. The food is always fresh & hot. Been coming here since they opened and I've never gotten a bad meal. The management and staff are wonderful and are always ready with a "Welcome to Firehouse" shout.

They consistently make good subs, very quickly and always provide great service. I love the selection of all the hot sauces and the variety of chips.
