LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - "Firehouse Subs was founded by actual firemen in 1996. There's about 400 restaurants nationwide," owner Ollie Wilkins said.
And their rookie location at 411 University, open just less than two weeks, finds itself at the top of the ladder heating up the Food for Thought list. "It feels great! It's something we take very seriously. We want to make our place the cleanest place in Lubbock, TX you can come in to eat for every patron who walks through the door."
And when you walk back out that door, you can only blame yourself if you're still hungry, "We serve huge portion sandwiches. We steam the meat and cheese so it comes out toasty, comes out moist, come out the best sandwich you'll have."
Next we head to a repeat top performer. Apple Tree Cafe & Bakery at 3501 50th whips up a perfect score.
Taco Villa at 8212 Indiana also finds itself at the top of the list, again.
And finally, if you feel like doing the cooking yourself, the bakery, grocery, meat and produce departments inside the United at 401 Slide were flawless.
