The first location to tempt you with their vegetarian Hot-Spotality is Firehouse Subs, 1547 Main St. Dunedin, FL 34698, Phone: 727 736-7827 Fax: 727 736-7820. We stopped there today and checked it out. Here's our review.
Upon entering this bright, well appointed Sub-space we were immediately greeted by the staff at the service counter in a tone of genuine southern hospitality: "How may I help you"...a good sign, this. We studied the menu board for a few pregnant moments which I must say were thankfully respected by the staff. Though the menu offers just one ovo/lacto-vegetarian sandwich the staff was immediately responsive to our request for a slight modification; we asked for a "Veggie Sub" to go: sans the mayo (that egg thing).
Bell Peppers and Onion
topped with: Provolone, Monterey Jack and American Cheese
Having ordered we waited less than 3 minutes before the hostess asked our preference for season sauces while presenting us a host of hot sauces the likes of which not even our Cajun cousins from Louisiana would recognize.
The "Veggie Sub" menued by this Jacksonville enterprise is a taste to be relished however you order it, the bonus is this, you can get it your way.
An Editorial sidebar: when we informed the staff at Firehouse Subs that we were surveying hospitality venues for the Toronto, CA Snowbird contingent, the manager, without entreaty came foreword and graciously introduced us to a visiting vegetarian couple (John and Sydney) from New Hampshire whom she described as regulars; enough said, enjoy!
