I really like a Philly Cheesesteak and finding Gaglione serves them was enticing. What a disappointment. The service was friendly and the place was busy, indicating they served good food. I got the 9 inch standard, took it home, opened it up and found a bun that tasted like it had been thawed in a microwave for way too long... More

Visiting friends and this is one of their family favorites. Our orders: dad-chicken cheesesteak, mom-vegan sandwich (basically all the fixings that could go on cheesesteak but without the meat), 13yo- cheesesteak with jalapeños (whoa), 9yo- chicken fingers and fries, me- salad- cheesesteak. Everything was delicious. 5 stars for convenience, cleanliness, and service.

Fabulous, delicious, delightful cheesesteak, perfect in every way and better than those available in Philadelphia. If you are a visitor or resident take advantage of this wonderful offering. You will want to write a 5 star review too. Before boarding the train in Philadelphia for our return trip to Washington DC we stopped in at the Reading Terminal Market and... More

If you're craving a Philly cheesesteak you can't go wrong with Gaglione's. My wife had the Cheesesteak Hoagie and I had the Mushroom Cheesesteak along with an order of garlic fries. You have the option of choosing a 9", 12" or 18" cheesesteak, we went with the 9" since that alone is very filling, but if you really have an... More

My husband LOVES cheesesteaks. So much we have done a cheesesteak tour of Milwaukee (he wishes it was Philadelphia but we don't live there) where we ate at all the top spots in one day to find his favorite. That being said he knows his cheesesteaks and needless to say I wasn't surprised when he told me he wanted to... More

The Philly with grilled onions was better than I remember in Philadelphia... the garlic fries are to die for again and again (enough to split with someone). Good service, fast and fresh ingredients. Try the Sophia Loren HOT - just like most Italian women were meant to be! Bon Appetit!

Great Food, big portions, great service and great prices! One of my favorite restaurants in San Diego, big hoagies are a meal itself, but you can't really miss out on their delicious Garlic Fries. I wish they had a GF option for bread. Really good!

A memorable pastrami sandwich! Seems a little pricey at first, but the amount of food, quality of ingredients, and careful presentation makes this little restaurant a winner!
