We were traveling from NE Tennessee on the way to Florida and stopped in Birmingham overnight. We were tired so we wanted something quick. Food took a little longer than normal to prepare and we were the only people in the restaurant! The taste was off a bit and wasn't really that warm. Probably wouldn't recommend this one to anyone...

If you are looking for a hot sub, served quickly, then this is the spot to go. The facility is clean, parking is plentiful, the sandwiches are served hot, the staff is friendly and efficient and the prices are reasonable.

Love taking the family here for a quick bite. They've recently added an outdoor eating section which adds to the accessibility. The staff is always courteous and I have never been disappointed with the food.

Firehouse is definitely the place to go if you want something more hearty and high quality than Subway. The meats, breads and cheeses are obviously of better quality and the proof is in the taste. Their meatball and chicken salad subs are excellent. Be prepared to pay a little more for the quality. It's worth it!

I tried the restaurant after hearing their commercial on the radio. Really good subs. Whie you don't get to pick each ingredient on your sub (SW), and the subs don't come glopped with tons of sauces (Q's), these sub have tons of flavor. Give it a try...and order your sub "fully involved".

Typically I just don't see the point in going out and buying a sandwich when I could have made something very similar at home, but Firehouse I love. I don't know what they do. They must put some sort of drugs in the sandwiches because they're addicting.
