Last Updated on June 17, 2024 by Shari Mason

Should you find yourself hungering for a scrumptious and fulfilling sandwich, Firehouse Subs should be your immediate destination. Their extensive menu offers an array of choices, making the selection of an ideal sandwich potentially quite daunting.

So which is the best sandwich at Firehouse Subs that will have you coming back for more? 

After taste-testing every sandwich on their menu, I’m thrilled to share my curated list. From smoky to spicy, there’s a sub for every craving.

Top 15 Sandwiches to Try at Firehouse Subs

15. Sweet & Spicy Meatball

Sweet & Spicy Meatball subs

The unseparated roll makes this sandwich far more manageable than your average meatball sub.

I like how the presentation also allows the marinara sauce and melted provolone cheese to coat the meatballs without dripping off the meatballs. 


14. Jamaican Jerk Turkey

It’s possible that Firehouse Subs’ Jamaican Jerk Turkey sub is the most out-of-the-ordinary offering there. 

What’s so entertaining about this submarine? When I tasted this sandwich, the turkey breast complemented the spiciness of the Caribbean seasoning and pepper jack and adds its unique smokiness.

13. Prime Rib Steak Sub

You should double-check that the Prime Rib Steak Sub is still in stock before placing an order. 

We think this sub tastes like a cheeseburger because of the addition of caramelized onions, mayonnaise, lettuce, tomato, and mustard.

12. Tuna Salad 

While warm tuna salad doesn’t sound appealing to many people, the Tuna Salad sandwich is the only one on the Firehouse menu that is always served cold (and we’re not complaining).

11. Spicy Cajun Chicken Sub

True to its name, the Spicy Cajun Chicken sandwich is loaded with heat, and it’s something that we really liked.

You won’t find any other chicken subs at Firehouse Subs but this one. Although “spicy” is part of the name, those who prefer a less intense flavor will still enjoy this sandwich.

10. Italian With Grilled Chicken Salad

The ingredients of the Italian with Grilled Chicken Salad include grilled chicken breast, romaine lettuce, Genoa salami, diced tomato, cucumber, green bell pepper, and mozzarella.

This item gets some much-needed substance from the salami and chicken breast. 

9. Firehouse Hero 

If you’re a meat eater with trouble deciding between several different deli meats, the Firehouse Hero is for you.

We find it salty, smoky, and sweet because of the three kinds of beef used. Be sure you’re a fan of roast beef before ordering this sub [1].

8. Italian Sub

The Italian sub is among the most stuffed sandwiches on the Firehouse Subs menu.

This sub has several sauces, including mayonnaise, deli mustard, and Italian dressing.

After savoring this sandwich, the variety of tastes is mind-boggling, what with the honey ham and the pepperoni.

7. Firehouse Meatball

Firehouse Subs has a version of the classic hot sandwich, the meatball sub, called the Firehouse Meatball. It has provolone cheese, marinara sauce, Italian meatballs, and seasonings.

We think the pairing isn’t groundbreaking, but it’s executed beautifully. 

6. Club on a Sub (but skip lettuce)

Smoked turkey breast, Virginia honey ham, pepper bacon, and melted Monterey Jack make up the Club on a Sub.

The honey ham adds a subtle sweetness, the turkey and bacon add a smokiness, and the lettuce, tomato, and onion add a tanginess and freshness that set this sub apart.

5. Engineer

We consider the Engineer more of a melt than a sub, in the same vein as the Smoked Beef & Cheddar Brisket.

If you want to transform a good sandwich into a superb one, skip the mustard and lettuce. The other parts of the sandwich are delicious.

4. Hook & Ladder

In many ways, the Hook & Ladder sub is just an upgraded version of the traditional ham-and-cheese sandwich. Melted Monterey Jack cheese is layered between slices of smoked turkey breast and Virginia honey ham.

3. Turkey Bacon Ranch 

Smoked turkey breast, melted sharp cheddar cheese, crispy bacon, onion, lettuce, mayonnaise, tomato, and creamy peppercorn ranch dressing make up the Turkey Bacon Ranch sub.

“Sandwiches are wonderful. You don’t need a spoon or a plate!”

~ Paul Lynde, American Comedian

Though cheddar isn’t typically associated with sub sandwiches, it pairs perfectly with the other ingredients in this Firehouse favorite. 

2. New York Steamer 

Corned beef brisket, pastrami, melted provolone, deli mustard, mayonnaise, and Italian dressing are all on the New York Steamer sandwich.

We think the New York Steamer is the closest thing Firehouse Subs offers to the traditional New York delicatessen sandwiches. 

1. Smokehouse Beef & Cheddar Brisket

USDA Select beef brisket, melted cheddar, mayonnaise, and Sweet Baby Ray’s Barbecue Sauce make up the Smokehouse Beef & Cheddar Brisket sub.

In our opinion, this is the best-tasting sandwich we’ve had at Firehouse Subs, considering the savory and hearty beef brisket hickory-smoked for 10 hours or so.

With the melted cheddar cheese, barbecue sauce, and mayo, nothing can beat this toasted sub roll.
