Ever get the urge for something sweet? Near us we have a combination Dunkin Donuts/ Baskin Robbins and with it comes 2 kinds of desserts and 2 types of rewards!

  • Earn $1 Dunkin’ Dollar for every $20 you spend in a calendar month

If you have never been to a Firehouse Subs, now is the perfect time. I am a sucker for sandwiches and this one specializes in good ones. Also, they have a very unique point of view! With an overwhelming array of hot sauces for you to try, ask an employee for the hottest they have, if you dare. One of my friends loves hot sauce, and the employee actually had to put on gloves and get it special out of the fridge. It was black coming out of the bottle and made his head explode. Good times.

You can also mix your own Strawberry Limeade or purchase a large orange pickle that benefits local firemen. The employees at the location we most frequent (Kirkman and Conroy) are always extra friendly and remember us when we come in. I also have a friend who works at the Sand Lake location, so if you go there, be sure to ask for Zachariah (tell him Laney sent you!).

So why is this a perfect time to visit Firehouse? Well, if you sign up for their “Copy That” newsletter right now, you may get sent a coupon for a free medium sub when you buy a sub, chips, and a drink on Labor Day. Even if you can’t take advantage of that particular offer, they are always sending coupons for a free drink with purchase.

My favorite thing to order there is the Engineer (you will come to find out, dear readers, that turkey is my go-to lunch meat!) Another fun way to order is how my brother and roommate do. They tell the employee to order it as if they were making it for themselves. Sometimes this is only for the adventurous, but fun nonetheless.

Keep updated with Facebook and Twitter!

Every once in awhile I get coupons for Cici’s pizza, but since it’s location is a little out of the way for me, we don’t go very often. Recently, we did visit the location on International Drive here in Orlando. Now the pizza is cheap, and although it’s not the best I have ever had, it’s all you can eat! The makes it the perfect meal if you are in a hurry and on a budget near the bustling tourist mecca of attractions.

What stands out most, though, is the desserts! They had brownies, a Bavarian crème pizza, and gooey cinnamon rolls (my husband’s favorite!). While we were deciding what we wanted to eat at the buffet, we noticed people asking for special orders. Apparently you can ask for cheesy bread or a whole specialty pizza and have it delivered to your table when it is ready, free of charge! The manager at this location was especially helpful and we noticed he took care to make sure people were not over crowded while getting their food.
