I eat here often and am always impressed with how friendly the staff is here. The food is also very good; the bbq beans are fantastic, but the service is exceptional. Always friendly and quick. I highly recommend the firehouse you will not be disappointed.

Love this place! The food is great and have never had bad service. There is also a vegetarian option (burger), so there is something for everyone.

The bbq at Firehouse is great....they have pork, beef, and chicken. I haven't tried the beef, but the other two are very good. If you're trying to be good, they have a chicken breast that is really good. The service is always good. The servers are very attentive to any needs you might have. Best time to go for lunch...

Great local BBQ place. Service is top notch every day. Tom Seaton the owner is super nice and leads by example. Food is the other star in the business. From salads to dessert the whole menu shines.

I have eaten here for many years. It is one of the most popular local restaurants in Johnson City. The BBQ is excellent and I personally love the house salads. Best ribs in town!

The Firehouse is home to the best pulled pork BBQ in Johnson City, Tennessee. It also has the best BBQ ribs. This restaurant stays at the top because of its outstanding management and well-trained employees. Built in an old firehouse on West Walnut Street, an antique fire engine greets diners at the door and gets out on the road for... More

Authentic old firehall with a 1927 seagraves truck in the lobby. Firefighter memorabilia all over the restaurant. Food is top notch as well as service. Worth driving extra miles for!
