Restaurant details
Reviewed 6 April 2018

My Wife and I decided we wanted to go out for lunch and only wanted a good sub in a sit-down restaurant and not spend a fortune. We decided on Firehouse Subs in Spring Hill because they have top quality Subs, ‘Hero’ Sandwiches to others, with top quality cold cuts, also known as ‘Lunch Meat’ to some people. Firehouse Subs was founded in 1994 by former firefighters and brothers, is based in, Jacksonville, Florida. This casual fast food restaurant chain took off like a rocket and is reported to have over 1,105 franchise locations in 44 states as well as, Puerto Rico, Canada, and Mexico. When you do something right it shows! Located in a small group of stores at the corner of Mariner and Northcliffe, they use fresh bread for the foundation of their overstuffed, incredible tasty sandwiches. The chain, started by two fire fighters and brothers, is on a mission to serve fresh sandwiches at a reasonable price and use part of the profits to help first responders through their non-profit foundation, ‘Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation’ has raised 44 million dollars for their effort since they started, to purchase needed equipment for first responders around the country.

These are not the run of the mill, ‘ho hum’ sandwiches. They have several unique sandwiches that use premium quality cold cuts and chesses that enhance the flavor of the sandwiches on toasted, fresh baked rolls and bread. We prefer hot sandwiches, but they will serve them cold if you prefer but we think getting them hot enhances the flavor. My top choice is the Smokehouse Beef & Cheddar Brisket with Prime choice beef brisket smoked for up to 16 hours with melted cheddar, mayo, and Sweet Baby Ray’s® BBQ Sauce. My wife loves ‘The Engineer’ a sandwich made with Smoked Turkey Breast, melted Swiss, and sautéed mushrooms complete with mayo, deli mustard, lettuce, tomato, onion as you prefer, with a kosher dill pickle on the side. I always add a side of the Firehouse Chili Made from ground beef, kidney beans, diced tomatoes and onions. A flavorful, hearty dish. The quality and quantity of the food is greater than Subway on any day which more than justifies the extra cost of a sub! The counter people are always friendly and helpful. The table area is clean, but a bit crammed together. The restroom could use some help. Maybe not the best location in the chain it’s close to home. For their philanthropic work and excellent food my wife and I are pleased to support Firehouse Subs regularly.

By far the best sub place around, and the memorabilia on the walls is cool to look at, as always you can donate to the local firefighters. The staff is always friendly.

Love every sandwich I have had here. The last one was the Italian sub. Hubbie had one, too and tried to talk me out of half of mine also. Had chips and soda, Staff is really nice & friendly, location is always clean. Would recommend this to any one or family. Remember to round up your cost to an even amount to add money in the bucket. Also, those pickle bucket is a good use & cost.

Good food and friendly workers. All very polite. The food was good, nothing to set it aside, but it's great that it helps local fire departments.
