“They Have Salads Now!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014

I always stop in here while my son gets a haircut next door at Sportsclips. (A teenager who already loves the full treatment with the steamed towel...) For you local folks, Valpak usually has a coupon for a free drink or even a free sub sometimes when you order another one at Firehouse Subs. I use this and it helps to pay for the haircut! Sandwich prices aren't over the top but not cheap, either. Portions are not bodacious like some sandwich places but who needs the extra carbs, anyway? (OK maybe you're there because it is called Firehouse Subs and you're a Fireman and you need your big carbs...Sorry!)

Do allow time when you come in here to get your meal made. For some reason, they get your order in ASAP (and are always very nice, especially the woman owner whose name I don't have) and then there is this long delay in getting your food. If you are trying to run out the door to get back to work, be sure to allow extra time. There are fun TV's with all kinds of cool sports programs going on so this helps to pass the time. I don't have cable and was able to catch some of Wimbeldon. Jolly good!

During my last visit, I tried the Italian Chopped Salad which was delicious! All of the veggies, lettuce and cheeses were chopped up in small pieces (food processor definitely involved) so it's easy to eat and enjoy all of the flavors without big hunks of peppers and lettuce sticking out of your mouth. Sounds like good First Date food to me!

“Enjoy the Deliciousness (3.5 out of 5)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2014

I've now found the other (2nd of 2) Firehouse Subs location in Frederick. Both of them were equally as good, but I liked my sub choice better this time, a medium Smokehouse Beef & Cheddar Brisket ($6.29). I really enjoyed the flavors. This is my new favorite sub at the moment. I imagine I'll have to order it every time I visit a Firehouse Subs from now on. The medium sized sub was enough so no need to order a large one here.

On your birthday, Firehouse Subs will give you a medium sub for FREE.

“Great Subs!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

Firehouse and Jersey Mike's are two sub shops that have come to Frederick in the past few years. Both are really excellent and deserve special trips. Firehouse has a great selection of subs and may have the edge when it comes to hot subs - especially the roast beef varieties. Mike's has more authentic New York/New Jersey subs and does a great job with the lettuce (yes, it matters). Both are great. The only way to see which you like better is to go to each about 10 times and then decide!

Highly recommended - two locations now in Frederick.

For non-chain shops, Beef, Buns, and Paradise still takes the lead. By a mile.
