Firehouse Subs, a Florida-based national franchise chain, just opened its first Long Island branch in Levittown. The chain, which was founded by firefighters, offers an assortment of sandwiches, some under 500 calories. Each restaurant is decorated with memorabilia from the local fire department. A nonprofit arm of the business, the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation, also aids local first responders.
On the menu, you’ll find such subs as the turkey bacon ranch ($6.29), Firehouse meatball ($6.09) and smokehouse beef and Cheddar brisket ($6.39). Weighing in at less than 500 calories are the sriracha beef ($6.19), turkey and cranberry ($6.14) and Capt. Sorensen’s datil pepper grilled chicken ($6.29) subs. Other items include chili ($3.89) and the signature Firehouse chopped salad with or without your choice of meat ($5.99 or $7.99).
Firehouse Subs is at 3359A Hempstead Tpke., Levittown, 516-597-4810.
