I’ve been crazy busy lately but I have my eyes set on a spot to try out by the weekend that I hope will be interesting (no spoilers!). For now here’s a quickie. This is Firehouse Subs, a pretty big chain sub sandwich place that is new to the area. It’s located next to Habit on Pleasant Grove near 65.
The place is quite large, for a sandwich joint, and decked out with firefighter gear & tools for decoration. They focus mostly on hot subs, there were only 2 cold ones that I saw on the website, a chicken salad sub and a tuna sub. I picked The Engineer (smoked turkey breast, melted Swiss, and sautéed mushrooms, served Fully Involved. “Fully Involved® – Loaded complete with mayo, deli mustard, lettuce, tomato, onion, and a kosher dill pickle on the side”) [$6.99 for a medium]. The menu didn’t seem clear that there were sizes other than medium, so I thought that referred to the soda. Eventually I saw a large delivered to a table nearby though and it was huge, maybe twice the size of the medium.
Overall it’s a pretty good sub. Nothing mind blowing, however it beats the hell out of Subway and Quiznos any day. If you like hot sauce then they should have something for you, I counted about 40 unique bottles (click the image below to see a larger version).
