Firehouse Subs is one of my favorite Florida restaurants and I knew I’d greatly miss them when moving across country, but they’d come as far as Salt Lake City at that point so my hopes were that they’d keep on trekkin’ in this direction.
Well, roughly a year ago, Firehouse Subs, which originated in Jacksonville, Florida with over 20 locations in or near the Bold New City of the South and over 770 locations nationwide, opened it’s doors in Idaho, in Boise itself on North Milwaukee Street, and by all indications, a second location will be opening soon on Eagle Road in Meridian.
What makes Firehouse Subs my favorite? Most of their subs are served hot, from steamed meat to freshly toasted bun, and they are just……great. Firehouse Subs also displays a large variety of hot sauces rated for their “hotness” for their patrons to try, and if one of the sauces tickles your fancy, you can usually purchase it from them.
In addition, each Firehouse Subs gives back to the communities it serves. As just one example: during Hurricane Katrina, they made food for the emergency workers. In addition, they highlight stories of bravery and sacrifice of individual firefighters on their soft drink cups. Firehouse Subs, after all, was founded by two Jacksonville firemen, Chris and Robin Sorensen.
If you haven’t yet been to Firehouse Subs, it is worth a try. My next blog, which will come out in just a few days, is about the murals in each Firehouse Subs restaurant, each as local and unique as the area the restaurant is located.
