BEST HOAGIES, and Vegetarian, too!

We stopped in after being told it was the place to go for hoagies in South Philly, and who knows hoagies like South Philly? We are vegetarian, so this can be tricky, but by focusing on excellent Italian ingredients, and offering multiple choices [FOUR veggie options], Sarcone's made it easy. We got... read more

My first short visit yielded prosciutto stuffed olives. On my 2nd visit of the day, we ordered 4 sandwiches to go for our group of 8. "It's All About the Bread" is their slogan and that's the fact! Bread is wonderful. Sandwiches are the Best!! You must go, but when the bread is gone, they are closed!! Go early! It's... More

We stopped here for a sandwich before getting on the Septa for a football game. The Junkyard was our first meal of the day. :) The sandwich was tasty. The fresh veggies and cheese made the sandwich interesting. And yes, the bread was good also.

I read about Sarcone's Deli in some travel book. I'm from Italy so the thought of their Italian meats and cheeses sounded lovely. I read they had proscuitto and I was sold. I did get a little lost because I found their bakery about a block down before I found the deli. I got a sandwich with mozzarella, proscuitto, red... More

Wonderful hoagies. We especially liked the provolone-tuna salad combo, with lettuce. tomato, onion and pickle. We werfe not travelling, as we live in Philly, and this one is the best in town

As you walk into Sarconne's deli there is a sign that reads, "its all about the bread"! Yes, and I would agree 110%. And the bread used in our hoagies was stale, hard and dry. So, as it all about the bread, the hoagie was all about 'not good'. I would say the meats and cheese used were tasty and... More

Great Bread! There are a few old world Italian bakers in South Philly. This is one of them. You cannot beat an Italian Deli hoagie when using their bread.

Sarcones has the best bread and rolls in philly and surrounding areas!!! Their hoagies are large, stuffed with fillings and absolutely awesome. There are a lot of places to choose hoagies from in philly but I think Sarcones is hands down the best place. We moved to Florida where none of the hoagies or bread is even close to Sarcones...

The prices are good for the quality of deli meat you are getting. The medium sandwiches range$7-$10 and they are big enough for two people to share.
