I have been coming to McGurk's since I was a kid! Hands down the best sandwich in Phoenix (and great pizza too!). Go grab yourself a Super Sicilian (w/ pickles and peppers) - you wont be disappointed.

The Bread! Only place outside of San Francisco, were the bread taste this good! Coming to this restaurant since my junior college days at Phoenix junior college we're talking 1981, yet the bread was special then & still the same. They offer about 12 different sub choices the super Sicilian is super great. Beer and wine selections too.

Best sandwich place in the area. It has been around for years and with good reason. Great selection, good ice tea and cosy place to eat.

Relaxing ambiance, wonderful people. and convenient to downtown. Tasty food, really good coleslaw, and the atmosphere makes you not want to go back to work. If you are in the downtown area, stop in and partake of some wonderful hospitality.

I am a person that always likes to add sauce to whatever I am eating, that is until I tried their Super Sicilian! And, it is not just the sauce they use, but the blend of the flavors of the meats and cheese, along with the bread. The oven they have, which has probably been in use for 30 or... More

This is a treat....locally ran sub shop. Chips.... 85 cents. Pickel spear, 25 cents. Sub....perfect! I had the chicken cacciatore and it was very good! The sauce was spicy yet very packed with flavor! I ate the entire sub and I usually would not eat that much. The bread was also amazing! The service was great and the food was... More

This is where I go when I want a really good sub sandwich. The sandwich chains do a good job at a reasonable price, but McGurkee’s sandwiches are a cut above the rest. Their bread is exactly how I like it; very fresh, with a thin, crispy crust. Soft inside like a genuine French baguette should be. Their fillings are... More

I used to eat hear 20 years ago when I lived in the valley. The sandwiches are just as good as I remember. A very nice gentleman was working there and he said he was the son of the original owner. The Super Sicilian is an amazing sandwich that everyone in Phoenix should try. My nephews had the pizza which... More

A little hidden sandwich shop on the corner of Thomas Road and 15th Avenue in Phoenix makes the best sandwiches you have ever tasted. It's very unassuming, has a broken up concrete corner of a parking lot, but, oh, what a sandwich you can get! The place is completely jammed at lunch time and you may have a problem finding... More

If you can find better bread in town please let me know. The Hero and Super Sicilian are my favorites but everyone has their own tastes. Gus and his small team have been running this place in the same location since the mid-1970's and our family has eaten there every year since they opened. It is a small shop with... More
