    This is a whole big pile of YAWN.

    Hopefully these will be cheaper. Firehouse Subs is very expensive for what you get when there are so many alternatives just down the street.

    • Sascha says:

      These are cheaper. Forgot how much exactly, but my Firehouse started selling these on Saturday, most of them are probably a bit spicy for my tastes, but could always forego the datil pepper sauce or siracha. The chicken salad looks pretty good, sans the swiss. Might try next time.

    • JF says:

      I’d expect them to be cheaper, for the same reason they are lower calories. They are smaller sandwiches.

      I’m not sure who you are comparing them to, price wise, but they seem to be in the same ball park, I think a little cheaper, than Jersey Mikes. Those are the only two sub places I can think of out here (Colorado). And of course you get what you pay for, paying a higher price for better ingredients, better quality sub isn’t something to complain about. Sure you can go to Subway, Quiznos, etc. and get some cheaper eats, but again, you get what you pay for.

      I actually prefer making my own subs at home. Get good quality cold cuts from Safeway, fresh bread, etc. and can make it exactly how I want it. For much less than you pay at a store. I understand if your working, out, etc. and need a meal, making something isn’t always an option, which is why if I want a sandwich I go to FH or JM. And while both of their prices have increased quite a bit the past few years, I’d rather go to either of those places and pay more to get a much better sandwich.

        I haven’t been to subway in years. Around here we have Potbelly which I would say is very comparable to Firehouse, of course Wawa, and Wegman’s makes killer subs (sort of like DiBella’s)and at a really good price. Last time and first time I went to firehouse, it was about $10 for lunch, which is a bit much.

        • JF says:

          No Wawa or Wegman out here. I have been to a Wawa, probably 20+ years ago in NJ, so don’t recall anything about them and their sandwiches. We have local places like Snarf’s. But chain wise, most, in my opinion are just bad. I used to like Subway, and when I moved to Colorado, loved Quiznos. Both have gone so far downhill since then, that neither would be a choice to get a sandwich. I’d rather go to a Safeway or King Soopers and get a sandwich from their deli’s before a chain.

          By me, we have Jersey Mikes, Firehouse Subs, Jimmy Johns. All of which are better than the rest, and sure they are pricey, but I’d still pay more for a better sandwich than paying less for a cheaper/crappier one.

          I don’t go to Firehouse Subs much, but what I learned, aside from their meatball sub, when I do go there, I don’t get it steamed. It’s not bad, but it just has this odd taste. Their subs taste much better if they are not steamed. That just might be me, and I love toasted subs, but steamed just tastes, and seems odd.

    they all look/sound good,wonder how big they are… wish we had them around here, so I could try ’em

  4. CB says:

    Firehouse is overrated IMO. I just don’t get the steaming of the meat. Plus they are so small for the price. Dibellas is where it’s at. Even jersey mikes is better!

    • Jonathan Wayne says:

      Yep, DiBella’s is flat out amazing and a way better deal than anything else out there. Ton of food, great taste and great bread. Even Penn Station is better than Firehouse.

    • Scrape says:

      I had no idea DiBella’s expanded out of Rot-Scheister. That place makes some outstanding sangwiches.

  5. Griffin says:

    Di Angelos is much better than any of these.

  6. nuttyturnip says:

    Momma’s Homemade Chicken Chopped Salad comes with ham and turkey?

  7. Ray says:

    These are $6.09 at my local Firehouse Subs (plus $2.39 if you want the chips and drink combo). I haven’t tried one yet but a couple of them look interesting enough.

    Heads up, Ryan – The Rt 85 Firehouse has a sign up in store already.

  8. Purp says:

    Not a fan of the new Momma’s chicken salad. Small chopped pieces and not very tasted IMO. Loved the old version of their chicken salad. Also, has chopped purple onions in it I think, if you don’t care for that. I say bring back the previous chicken salad. Worth the extra calories if it had more…for a splurge lunch.
