Simply amazing!!!!

First of all, this is NOT my first time eating here but after visiting family in Philly, I made sure that this was one of my stops to eat. Sarcone's uses the freshest meats and toppings. However, if you're a hoagie (yes, we call them hoagies up here in the north and not subs LOL), then you should... read more

If you're in the Philadelphia area, make sure you stop into Sarcone's Deli for lunch and/or a mid-day snack. Nestled in the historic Italian section in South Philly, this deli is sure to please your taste buds. Their classic and unique array of choices (all served on the delicious Sarcone's bread) can be a little overwhelming at first, but that... More

Lots of choices. The Italian was really good. Best to call ahead and order if you are placing a large order. Not the best hoagie but definitely not the worst.

Sarcone's provides great rolls for some of the best cheese steak and sub shops in town which in itself is a tremendous compliment in this city of bakeries. The food is superb.

Our visit to Sarcone's made me nostalgic for my childhood Saturday trips to the Italian deli. We were greeted by the smell of fresh bread and friendly banter on both sides of the counter. My sandwich - the junkyard - has appropriately been honored as a Food Network "best thing I ever ate". The Italian hoagie and veggie were equally... More

I have been here five or more times and love their sandwiches.. One time the bakery was closed and they sold me some bread... That was very nice of them.. Service is fast also.. I can't wait to go back..

Sacrone's came highly recommended, I'm not sure why. The bread was good and the sandwiches we fairly good but not great. My daughter had ham and cheese, my husband had roast beef and I had the roasted veggie. You can get great bread and a better sandwich at almost any deli in NY for half the price. There were two...

The Sinatra is everything I could want in a meal. I won't eat any other hoagie anywhere. Homemade cheese spread is a hidden gem, and hand fire roasted peppers are amazing.

The thing that makes a Philadelphia hoagie great is the roll. Sarcone's has the best rolls around. Mmake sure you check their hours before visiting.
