Firehouse Subs - These are starting to pop up in the area. It's a fire-themed sandwich deli decorated with local departments photos and memorbilia.

McAlister's Deli - There are a couple of these around that have photos from the local fire and police departments on the walls, and they make a darn good sandwich. The ones in North Richland Hills and Colleyville definitely have some photos up. I haven't tried all the other ones yet.
