Fast food is seductive; it comes in large quantities, cheap prices and delicious aromas and tastes. However, that bang for your buck can explode your diet and get you off track. Sometimes fast food can’t be avoided, but the massive amounts of calories that frequently come with it can be. Check out our Firehouse Subs menu under 500 calories.
With Firehouse, you can choose from a few delicious options!
Turkey and Cranberry Sub: With smoked turkey breast, Monterey Jack cheese, cranberry spread, lettuce, tomato, onion and light mayo all on a light wheat roll, what more could you ask for? At 495 calories, this sandwich comes pretty close to our 500 limit, but you can ditch 91 cals by getting rid of the cranberry spread.

Turkey Salsa Verde Sub: Who doesn't like the sound of smoked turkey breast, Monterey Jack cheese, salsa verde sauce, lettuce, tomato, onion and light mayo on a light wheat roll? It comes in at 427 calories, but you could ditch the light mayo and it would be 356 calories.
Captain Sorensen's Datil Pepper Grilled Chicken: This sub takes after Firehouse's namesake; the pepper sauce gives it the perfect zing you've been craving! With grilled chicken, Monterey Jack cheese, Capt. Sorensen’s Datil Pepper Sauce, lettuce, tomato, onion and light mayo on a light wheat roll, 430 calories doesn't seem so bad now. Not a fan of the firey spice, but everything else sounds good? Ditch the pepper sauce as well as its 56 calories!
Beverage: The healthiest fast food beverage option is obviously water, but if you're looking for a little caffeine kick, Firehouse has endless combos of diet sodas! Not a fan of soda? They also offer various flavors of Minute Maid Light.
