The tuna sandwich here cannot be beat! I order it with the works, which means chopped onions, peppers and tomatoes. They offer cheese, which I pass on. The roll is perfect and the price is right. They also have at least 5-6 other kinds of meat sandwiches, but I can't give up the tuna. They have chips and soda. Simple... More

This is a dive of dives. For many years it didn't even have a sign, it was a broken frame of a sign with nothing in it, and all of their business came from word of mouth. Looks like a little red house with a couple picnic tables on the patio. Even though it's now quite a drive for me... More

It's been a long time since I last visited Giamela's. Their pepper steak sub was a standout. I just tried it again. Nothing has changed...it's still the best. It's not fancy, just sauted steak heaped in a soft loaf the size of a submarine and loaded with chopped tomatoes, onions and pickles. Tempted to try the pastrami sub, which has... More

When in California....They have a very limited grinder menu but what they do is just amazing! They have two sizes. My daughter ordered... More

Giamela's Is The Best!! Period!!! My Family Has Been Going To Giamela's Forever (30+ Years) And It Seems To Improve With Age. The City Made Them Buy A New Sign A Few Years Ago, But They Didn't Need It! Everybody Knows Giamela's! I Want To Buy That Old Cast Iron Pepper Steak Pan!!

They have some of the best true Sub-sandwiches. IT is a tiny little shop, so there is always people waiting to get in. Both for lunch and dinner (so you know it is good). The small sandwiche (which really aren't small in comparison to chains) runs about 4.00 and 5.00 for the large sandwich. Pepper Steak, Italian Cold Cuts they... More
