Firehouse Subs – Meet the Founders Dinner (and a giveaway!)

Recently, I was invited to attend a special dinner with Firehouse Subs called “Meet the Founders”.


At the event, we had the opportunity to hear both, Chris & Robin Sorensen, aka the founders, tell the Firehouse Subs story. If you’ve heard a Firehouse Subs radio or TV commercial, these are “the guys” with the incredibly recognizable voices. It was a fun night where we had the opportunity to learn about what makes Firehouse Subs superior to other sub locations. Back in 1994 Firehouse Subs was founded by the two firefighting brothers who strive hard to provide quality over quantity. In fact they even serve high quality meat (USDA Choice) that’s never frozen and sliced daily.

Knowing this, let’s get to the Food! I had the opportunity to try three different subs at Firehouse. This was actually a big deal to me because I’ve only ever ordered one sub at Firehouse, The Italian. It was amazing, so I never tried to order anything else.


They started the sub parade with their new Smokehouse Beef and Cheddar. This was seriously good, saucy, and cheesy. The Smokehouse Beef and Cheddar is made with USDA Choice beef brisket smoked over hickory for 16+ hours, then smothered in melted cheddar and Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ sauce.


Next we enjoyed New York Steamer Sub made with corned beef brisket, pastrami, melted provolone, mustard, mayo, and Italian dressing.


Lastly, we each got an Italian, my absolute favorite sub of all time in the whole wide world. Stuffed with genoa salami, pepperoni, ham, melted provolone, Italian dressing and seasonings. What makes this soooooo good? They steam the meat and the cheese while they’re toasting the bread. (Not to mention all the other good stuff in there)


We also had the chance to try the Hook and Ladder. Unfortunately, I professed my love to the Italian too long, so I missed out on trying this one.


One of the best things of the visit (aside from meeting the Founders and trying all the different subs) is they gave us some gift cards to share the love of Firehouse with our friends and readers! I set aside 3 $10 gift cards to giveaway.

To enter this giveaway, simply comment on this post, telling me which Firehouse Sub is your favorite and how you like it? Fully involved?

I will randomly select a winner on Monday, April 29.

  1. I LOVE the brisket! I always order extra sauce, sometimes I put some of the Peri Peri hot sauce on it. Yum.

    That’s pretty much all I order… all I’ve ever ordered, in fact. And it’s darn expensive to take 8 of us to firehouse for a meal… so I’d love to win this! 🙂

  2. I just happened upon your site from Urbanspoon, and I’m enjoying the reviews!

    I love, love, love Firehouse Subs! I mix it up, though, between turkey (extra mayo and chopped pickles), tuna, the Italian, and, my most recent favorite, the Meatball. It’s a great meatball sub, even on wheat bread.

    1. Wow, Thanks for reading and entering the contest!! I love a great meatball sub. Maaaaybe I’ll mix it up on my next visit, and give it a shot! Thanks again!

  3. I’m also a fan of the Italian. Everything but tomato on it… yum! I think I may need to try the briscuit now too after reading the description.

  4. I order the vegetarian sub…almost fully loaded and enjoy it every time I go there. Would love to win a free one!

  5. Stacey… Never been to a Firehouse Subs, but there is one a few blocks away from work. I will go soon, based on your recommendation.

  6. ive actually never eaten there but i recently moved and theres one very close by my house and ive been eyeing it!!
