The subs are big and filled with plenty of meat and most importantly the bread is delicious the staff is friendly and informative. The prices are little on the high end but you get what you pay for. It's a can't miss.

If you want the epitome' of what a sub should be, this is the place. Great meats and rolls done right. Make sure that you call in early. They don't pick up the phone as you get closer to noon. Showing up without an order is done at your risk. It's a step back in time in a positive manner.

Best subs and steaks going. Can also get lunch meat, cheeses and even sandwich steaks, rolls if you want to make yout steak sandwich. Can buy pasta dishes, coleslaw, bread, milk, chips and other snacks. Also some old time candies and Italtian goods. I am very picky about my subs want this and not that and always made to order....

This is the original Casapulla's location and it is take-out only. Call ahead with your order or take a number when you arrive. You won't be disappointed! If you order a cheese steak and you like it chopped then you have to ask to have it "chopped". Otherwise you will get the steak all in one piece on the roll.... More

Been eating Casapullas subs and steakd for 40 years and still go there at least once a week. With the heavy amount of business they do, you may want to call your order in ahead of time. They do get crowded during lunch and dinner hours. They also carry good lunchmeats and cheeses, as well as grocery staples, but are... More

Always a great hoagie. I have looked and can not find a better sandwich. I wish that they had more locations. But when I am in Elsmere at lunch time, I know that I can't go wrong at Casapulla's.

Packed with all the best meats, and just the right amount of oil and hots, even after 35 years its still the best there is. Baby Tuna Sub with Burnt Fried Onions is my wife's favorite, and the Italian Special with Proscuito is mine.

I believe this is the original location for Casapullas. We have been ordering from them for years. Always a good sandwich/Steaks/subs/hoagies. Try the Scrapple and Egg sub with Cooper Sharp cheese!

When I placed my order I obtained the number off the website and ordered from the menu off the website. Which stated they had three different sandwich sizes mini small and large. I ordered two small cheese steaks cause the mini was 6 inch I wanted the bigger one which was 10 inch the small. But when I went to... More

When they name the street after you, you must be doing something right. My wife and I split a large Italian with prosciutto. It was terrific. We still had half to take home. The smell inside is intoxicating. They do it right and have been for many many years. My next trip to the Wilmington VA hospital will have to... More
