Firehouse Subs


Updated 2017! Firehouse Subs  is a fast casual sandwich shop with more than 1000 locations across the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. The allergen menus for the U.S. and Canada appear to be the same, so our list below is for North America as a whole.

Other Allergen Notes: At our time of review, all of the Firehouse subs and salads contained dairy when prepared by the menu. But in most cases, you just need to order it without cheese. Most of their breads, meats, dressings, and condiments are made without dairy. For gluten-free diners, their Chopped Salads are a great option. All of the dairy-free salad dressings noted above appear to be gluten-free, too.
