The quality and taste of their food never changes. You know exactly what you are going to get when you order your food. The service is also excellent. I love the bar-b-q salad with blue cheese dressing.

The atmosphere is good. There's a fire truck located just inside the door. The food is very good and they offer a variety that includes cheeseburgers. Prices are reasonable.

With all the great reviews, I was expecting much more. I went for a weekday lunch. First issue was the 'express' line which is anything but. You stand in line at the register, order and pay then bring your receipt to the table. In reality,...More

Visiting the area this past week. Loved the Carolina pulled pork sandwich, and barbecue beans. Super nice staff, too. Enjoyed this much more than the overpriced and overrated Tupelo Honey down the street.

Enjoyed the atmosphere and service. The sauce used on the ribs was way too much and had an odd taste to it. It overpowered the ribs which is disappointing because it killed their flavor. Baked Potato Salad was great!

Firehouse is happy to offer gift certificates !
It appears that this restaurant is closed on Sunday, is that the case? I will be traveling with a collegiate choir and we will be in Johnson City for lunch next Sunday. I was hoping to take them to the Firehouse Restaurant.
