What was that?

I didn't care for their limited dinners so I asked for broccoli pizza and received a white pizza with ice cold broccoli on top of both slices. The waitress was very good plus efficient and wanted to reheat it but I told her it was never heated in the first place, which was not her fault. I pushed... read more

The food is very good, the portions are huge, the prices are very reasonable. A larger menu/variety than many local pizza/steak/sandwich places.

Try it for yourself... I won't go back, but I didn't hate the food. Better places all around the area. It is very expensive, but you get a lot of food.

I live about a mile away from Gaetano's. My dad and I always come here to grab a bite for lunch. The chicken cheesesteak is awesome! And they're extremely big. I always order the small sized one and can barely finish it. They make sure it's stuffed and not lacking on the meat like a lot of places do. They... More

We stopped in for lunch and split a 17" Cheesesteak and barely finished. It was loaded with perfectly cooked steak and cheese and the roll was just right. We really like Philly Cheesesteaks and this was a good one. Everybody in the area agreed it was good when we mentioned we ate at Gaetanos so it has a good local... More

In South Jersey there is a cheesesteak shop on every corner, and most are very good. But there is only one best and that is Gaetano's. The portions are huge, a "mini" is large enough for most. They actually have a full menu, but I don't know how it is because I always order nothing but a cheesesteak. (Gaetano's is... More

My wife and I consume many steak sandwiches and Gaetanos makes the best. The meat is finely sliced and PLENTY of it. The large is 18" long and the mini is large enough to satisfy. The owner is very affalible and the staff are very friendly and helpful.

The service is exceptional and the food was terrific, hot and served quickly. The only thing I disliked was having to leave.

A friend was visiting from out of town. Its dinner time. Do we want to go for a fancy meal? No ... How about a cheesesteak? My north-Jersey nephews know about cheesesteaks from watching sports events against the Philly teams. I've taken them to all the famous Philly cheesesteak spots, but they didn't like them. Last time I took them... More

Had a steak sandwich over the weekend. Was nothing to write home about. Food is average and simple, but blah. Doesn't tantalize my tastebuds.
