Came here for dinner restaurant across the street from my hotel. Was seated about 6:55pm at the Latest. Waited while they brought menus. They have a 2 for 1 Happy Hour till 7:00pm. I went to order about 7:04pm. Was told by waiter Happy Hour did Not Apply since it was past 7:00pm. Understand I entered the restaurant and sat down before 7:00pm. I asked him to go ask the manager, he came back and said "manager would not honor 2 for 1" ! I got up and left and went just across the hall to "Beer Station" (glad I did). Manager and waiter at FIREHOUSE should be "FIREHOSED" for being INCOMPETENTS ! This restaurant was almost empty when I entered, and almost empty when I was leaving across the way "Beer Station". It is obvious the reason it is almost empty is stupid management and probably bad food. FORGET THIS PLACE, go across just a few feet to BEER STATION, always full and it was pretty good.

The food was really good, no complains about it. The service needs to improve a little. The waiters need to pay more attention and confirm the order.

Had lunch at Firehouse, next to Carrulla la Frontera (the border between Medellin and Envigado) ... A shared appetizer, two burgers, a water and a soda was 60k (about $20)... which is expensive for lunch here. (A lot of good dinner places are less)

The cheese appetizer was great. The burger was very rare (which is typical in Colombia) - I asked for them to grill it some more, as it was all red. The waiter came back, and said it was cooked enough ... told my fiance (who's from Medellin) that no matter how much they cook it, it will still be red

I've just never had a restaurant (much less a burger joint) tell me it's cooked enough. Perhaps they should have ate it. Needless to say, won't be returning here

PS -- bacon was bits, not an honest slice of bacon ... so beside from the appetizer, the burger was going to be a fail for the price anyway.

I wish i had more options on chicken wings and hamburgers.

The salad was lame and overpriced and it took around 20 minutes to be ready.

The good thing was that the spicy sauce was really spicy.

Our bill was around 75000 COP for just wings, salad and one tea is too much.

A nice place to have burgers, sandwiches and hot wings. Try the Chili, Mexican and Swiss with the Firehouse potato fries, great combination with a beer. Later, ask for the Oreo or Milonga dessert. Great taste.
