Restaurant Details: Joe, Andy, and Tony Gaglione were born in the San Francisco Bay Area but have called San Diego home for many years. After having done many trips to the East coast visiting their father and huge extended Italian family and after having sampled the neighborhood eateries of Buffalo, NY, the brothers returned to San Diego with a yearning for the authentic family style cheesesteak and hoagie shop. ?Options were limited and in order to fill the void and satisfy their own cravings, in 2003, the Gaglione Brothers decided it was time to bring the very best cheesesteaks and subs to San Diego. Motivated by what a excellent, superbly tasting sandwich should be, the brothers began testing, cooking and creating sub and menu items in older brother Joe’s kitchen in Pacific Beach. ?In a Gaglione Brothers neighborhood sandwich shop you will find only the best quality ingredients and care towards making this well known sandwich. The first step always starts with a fresh imported roll from Amoroso Baking Co., the famous Philadelphia bakery that serves what many argue, the essential foundation for every true cheesesteak and specialty sandwich. Premium meats, cheeses, fresh produce, and many homemade ingredients, including meatballs, turkey, coleslaw, stuffing, and Russian and Italian dressings, are used when hand preparing each sandwich.
Some of the most well-liked menu items are tributes to family members. “The General,” named after the brothers’ Italian Grandmother, features thinly sliced hot pastrami, melted Swiss cheese, homemade Russian dressing and fresh coleslaw. “The Turk,” a tribute to their late father and a holiday inspired treat served year round includes homemade turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce and mayonnaise. The newest menu item, “The Father Joe”, is a meatball sandwich dedicated to their uncle, a catholic priest, which uses the meatball recipe that has been in the Gaglione family for generations.??No matter what location, the Gaglione Brothers are committed to bringing an genuine, family style cheesesteak and sub shop to a neighborhood near you!
