“Great lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014 via mobile

We stopped here for a quick lunch based on Trip Advisor reviews. I had a turkey sandwich and my wife had a hot ham and cheese sandwich. They were very fresh and tasty. The place is very crowded though so be ready to stand in line for 15 minutes and about 15 minutes more for your food.

“There's a reason it's rated #1”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014

I've just been here once...however, based on that...I can't wait to return. I just had coffee and one of their breakfast bagels...simple but delicious. The sandwich menu looks terrific! Service was very friendly. A very simple yet very great place.

“Cash Only”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014

Great food, great atmosphere. A Gunnison must-do. Just bring cash, they don't take credit or debit cards.

“Best Reubens! ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014 via mobile

This restaurant has the best sandwiches, soups and salads in town. I highly recommend the reuben and surefire sandwiches. Their reuben has classic ingredients but they are so very fresh. The overstuffed sandwich can be made on any of their wonderful bread choices but the rye is best. The Surefire has turkey, avocado, a wonderful spicy mayo, fresh veggies and is very good on their sourdough bread. The kids love the plain grilled cheese but there are lots of other choices for them as well.
There are two things you must know BEFORE going to Firebrand :
1. They do not take credit cards so bring cash.
2. It takes a while to construct these perfect sandwiches, each made-to-order with care. Plan on waiting about half an hour. Or, an even better idea is to call in your order, pick it up then drive down Tomichi (hwy 50) and eat it at the beautiful Park.

We eat here every summer when we visit Gunnison and the locals love it too so it's usually crowded but well worth the wait!

“The go to place in Gunny for a great sandwich”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014 via mobile

We stopped here for lunch yesterday and we knew we were in the right place because of the line and the brown bags exiting for delivery to local shops. I don't think you can go wrong with whatever you order as great care is put into making the food. Friendly staff too!
