Imagine a simple sandwich without bells and whistles; only bread and meat—just as God intended for it to be. That sandwich would have to be pretty darn good to survive in this chaotic, complicated and over-condimented world. Well, I found one that is: the New York Steamer at Firehouse Subs. Made on lightly toasted white or wheat bread, this sub has some of the juiciest meat you’ll ever eat. Imagine thin ribbons of steaming hot corned beef brisket and pastrami that’s piled high on fresh, soft bread with dashes of deli mustard, Italian dressing, and a blanket of melted provolone cheese, with a kosher dill pickle on the side. Now imagine biting into it and regaining your faith in sandwiches. As if that life-changing moment wasn’t enough, if you’re a hot sauce fan, hang on to your helmets—they have over 50 of them that are rated in order of “heat index” to determine what’s hot and what’s not. Try them if you dare, but be prepared to put out some fires! Founded by firemen, Firehouse Subs is a favorite to many who come to enjoy the quality food, excellent service and ambience of camaraderie and courage. Low on gas, energy or life in general? Firehouse Subs welcomes you to stop by and “fill your engines.” Firehouse Subs, 1001 East Bidwell Street, Folsom. 916-984-0600, firehousesubs.com.
