Our Picks

Ryan’s Pick: I’ve only had Firehouse once since going vegan. I went with the Veggie Sub as described in the Quick Order. While really boring, it’s not terrible. Firehouse does have pretty good bread so that helps when you’re eating a sandwich full of veggies.

Jen’s Pick: While I haven’t been to Firehouse Subs since being vegan, I could absolutely make this work. I would get a white sub roll with avocado, banana peppers, green bell peppers, cucumber, romaine lettuce and tomato with either balsamic or bbq sauce for a topping. And chips.
