Firehouse Subs Serves Up Nashville Hot Brisket

We’ve seen shrimp get the Nashville Hot treatment this week at Red Lobster, but never would I have imagined beef brisket could be served Nashville Hot. Like with most things in my life, I was wrong.

Firehouse Subs just announced the release of a Nashville Hot Brisket Sandwich.

The sub is loaded with slow-smoked USDA Choice beef brisket that’s sliced up and coated with a spicy Nashville Hot seasoning. It’s then topped with spicy pickle chips, mayonnaise, a sweet and tangy coleslaw, and melted pepper jack cheese on a toasted cornbread roll.

Curious to see if it leans more towards Nashville Hot chicken or tender smoked brisket, either way my curiosity is piqued for a sub.

You can find this hot sandwich at participating Firehouse Subs locations across the nation.

Firehouse Subs Made BEER CHEESE SAUCE For Their New Steak Sub

If you’re hitting up a local pub, chances are there will be beer cheese with some pretzels on the menu. The salty, airy pretzel pairs with the sharp, nutty cheese sauce for a mouthwatering flavor bomb that’s become a staple on bar food menus.

Firehouse Subs is taking inspiration from that classic combination, creating a new sub and side pairing that fuses a steak sub, beer cheese, and pretzels.

The Firehouse Pub Steak sub features a custom beer cheese sauce that the sandwich chain, which was founded by firefighters, developed exclusively for the new creation. Made with White Belgian-style Wheat Ale, American, and Cheddar cheeses, it’s an explosion of sharp and savory flavors that pairs perfectly with steak in a toasted roll.

Firehouse Subs tops the Pub Steak with crispy fried onions, and guests can pair it with Rold Gold Tiny Twists pretzels to give the entire meal that pub vibe.

You can find the Firehouse Pub Steak sub and Rold Gold Tiny Twists at participating Firehouse Subs locations nationwide for a limited time. And to top it all off, a portion of your purchase in 2018 at all U.S. Firehouse Subs locations goes to the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation and will be used to provide lifesaving equipment to first responders. 

Created in partnership with Firehouse Subs.

Firehouse Subs Built A Stadium Out Of Sandwiches We Want To Live In

Firehouse subs is celebrating the Super Bowl with the SUBper Bowl. The national sandwich chain has built a miniature stadium created entirely of sandwiches, deli meats, cheese and desserts just for this weekend.

Reminds us of the sandwich house we used to dream about living in when we were younger. Alas, that dream became less and less likely as we grew older. Think of the ants.

The delicious construction features 6 dozen cookies, 24 brownies, 3 pounds of salami, 3 pounds of pepperoni, 35 pounds of turkey, 35 pounds of ham, 15 pounds of corned beef, 15 pounds of pastrami 10 pounds of cheddar, 10 pounds of Monterey Jack and 10 pounds of Swiss cheese.


It took about between eight to ten people working on this project an entire 24 hours to construct.

Firehouse made a quick pitstop at Foodbeast HQ and gave us a peek at the snack stadium. Unfortunately, we wouldn’t pick at it too much. They did make up for it with some subs, however.

Check out the video above for a closer look at the SUBper Bowl.

Meet The Artist Responsible For EVERY Custom Mural Inside 1000+ Firehouse Subs Restaurants


Artist Joe Puskas didn’t always start out painting murals. Originally, he began doing T-shirt designs with only one mural and zero art classes under his belt.

However, one mural was all it took. Puskas’ work was discovered by Firehouse Subs Co-founder Robin Sorensen behind a Tom and Betty’s Restaurant. Since then, Puskas’ iconic career as a Firehouse muralist began.

Having completed 1,000 murals at 1,000 Firehouse subs since 1994, Puskas’ and his team are known for their custom paintings that are unique to each location.


The process begins as a pencil sketch. Each mural features a firetruck that’s unqiue to the city it’s located in. Puskas then incorporates some of the city’s history into the mural. Once the pencils are completed, his team works tirelessly to bring the mural to life. Creating each mural can take up to 70 hours.

Check out this amazing video detailing Puskas’ process from beginning to end. Next time you’re at a Firehouse Subs, keep an eye out for his mural.


Firehouse Subs Will Now Offer Both Hot AND Cold Sandwiches [EXCLUSIVE]


Firehouse Subs has long made a name for itself innovating with hot sandwiches, “steaming” their meats and cheeses and placing them on toasted sub rolls. Their brand is synonymous with hearty hot sandwiches, until today.

The fast casual chain (you order up at the cashier, but they bring the food to your table) is delving into the cold sandwich game, we learned at a media event.

We learned that instead of offering an option for their current sandwiches to be served cold, their team decided to create six new sandwiches as part of a Cold Deli Heroes menu. The move is an effort to capitalize on the catering side of their business, offering menu options that travel a bit more sexy than the warm sandwich.

Our Firehouse sources tell us that the sandwiches are currently in test at two locations in the Jacksonville, FL area:

10261 River Marsh Dr. Suite 131

Jacksonville, FL 32246 


9825 San Jose Blvd.

Jacksonville, FL 32257

Approximately 100 restaurants will have the cold subs by June and July as a first initial test. The rest of the test is slated for August of this year where more locations will begin serving the cold menu.

Here are the sandwiches you can expect to see on the cold menu:

The Malibu


Smoked turkey breast and bacon with avocado, spinach, onion, tomato, honey mustard, and salt & pepper.


The Hook & Ladder Hero


Smoked turkey breast and Virginia honey ham with Monterey Jack cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion, mayonnaise, deli mustard, salt & pepper, and Italian dressing.


The Mediterranean


Hummus, feta, marinated artichoke hearts, olive mix, cucumbers, lettuce, spinach, tomato, onion, salt & pepper, and Balsamic vinaigrette on toasted garlic Asiago bread.

The Sicilian


Hot cappicola, ham, salami, and pepperoni with Provolone, sweet & cherry peppers, lettuce, tomato, onions, mayonnaise, spicy mustard, salt & pepper plus Italian dressing and seasoning.

The Chicken Caesar (the bread is the crouton!)


Grilled chicken breast with romaine, tomato, Caesar dressing, and salt & pepper on toasted garlic Asiago bread.


The Battalion Chief


Roast beef with cheddar cheese, crisp fried onions, mayonnaise, lettuce, and spicy horseradish mayo.
