Description: For a good sub, there is no substitute!
Having seen a few Penn Stations while traveling, one finally opened near my hometown. So what do I do? Play Magic with a few friends til we get hungry and we make our way to Penn Station to try it out.
This location is conveniently located in the Metro Centre in Peoria, IL. Inside, the place is spacey, but not too big nor too small. It’s a good size for a ‘semi-fast food’ place. 10 people in there would make it seem busy but not crowded.
Any way, on to the food. I ordered an 8″ Chicken Parmesan and a small fry. They offered me a free water but I declined. The sub itself was good, if not lacking a bit in full flavor. They serve it splayed open and cut in half instead of folded up. Different, but cool. My friends and I liked the fries the most. A meal will run you about $10 if you get chips and soda.
The staff was friendly if not a bit unprofessional during down times. The store was super clean though. The on-duty manager stopped by our table to talk on his way out and he gave Alex grief for eating all his fries before he even touched his sub. Ha!
Firehouse Subs still holds my Top Spot for Subs. Sadly this did not come close to conquering the Top Spot. But… all-in-all, a pretty decent Sub place. It didn’t blow my taste buds away, but it didn’t really excite them too much either.
If you are interested in trying them out, there are over 300 locations in 15 states, so there might just be one near you!
