I am a big fan of trying new restaurants. There's something exciting about a new food place opening in the city that shows growth and community. Food brings people together and creates a connection where there might not have been one.
This week I made my way to Firehouse Subs, a sandwich joint I had been wanting to check out for some time. They have a variety of signature classics like Hook and Ladder, New York Steamer, and Firehouse Meatball, all of which looked delicious. I tried my hand at the Club on a Sub, which had turkey breast, honey ham, pepper bacon, Monterey Jack, and served "Fully Involved"--their phrase for mayo, mustard, lettuce, tomato, onion, and pickles.
I gladly give my sandwich a five star rating, both for taste and size. I chose the medium, which was about an eight inch sandwich, thinking it would be small, but I had half left over for the next day with their generous portions. Plus there are combo options with chips (or a cookie!) and drink, side menus of salads and soups, or kids' portions.
One noteworthy part about Firehouse Subs is their support of first responders. A portion of all their sales goes to buying equipment that firemen, policemen, EMT's, and paramedics need to do their jobs well. I personally love supporting businesses that give back, and especially toward a cause that means so much.
So if you're looking for a great sandwich that supports a great cause, make your way over to Firehouse Subs and enjoy a meal that leaves you satisifed!
