“The best place for subs and steaks”
Reviewed November 2, 2013

If you're ever in this part of Wilmington, you MUST have a hoagie from Casapulla's. My husband grew up in this area and the quality of the subs has not changed in decades. The rolls are just the right texture and the fillings are fresh and overflowing, lots of capicola ham, provolone, tomatoes, lettuce, pickles, peppers, etc. . We usually get the Italian with everything although you may choose whether or not to have pickles, peppers, onions, etc. It is the best deal in town price-wise. We get the large 12 inch hoagie and split it (they slice it in half) and it is just right for 2 adults. If you prefer something warm, the steak sandwiches are yummy. Call ahead to order, it takes about 20 minutes if they're busy, especially on weekends.

“Still a great place”
Reviewed July 4, 2013 via mobile

I grew up on Casapulla's steaks and subs. I hadn't been there in about 20 years and I got a chance to stop by. They still make the best cheesesteaks hands down. Great roll, onions cooked to perfection, and packed with meat. The provalone cheese is still tasty, and with the hot peppers, it is the perfect sandwich. The store is same dump as it always been. I think some of the same items are still on the shelves. I need to go back for an Italian sub.

Not only is Cassapulla's well-known for its' subs and steaks, they also have a great selection of deli meats and salads available for purchase. We have been going there for as long as I can remember. Always tasty!

“Cheaper than Capriotti's and Nicer than Subway”
Reviewed September 20, 2011

One would wonder how a small sub shop down a back road could survive with a Subway within a mile. My father loves Casapulla's and has been buying their subs for longer than I've been alive.

Casapulla's offers a good variety of subs and toppings, like a Subway except Casapulla's ingredients taste fresher. The subs are much cheaper than Capriotti's but slightly more than Subways. The store also has a mini-grocery in it for chips, sodas, or other small goods. Most of the staff in Casapullas is very friendly. However, it seems the shop never invested in a phone with more than one line because if you call on a Friday or Saturday evening you constantly get a busy signal.

Overall, Casapullas offers good subs and reasonable prices. I would recommend them highly.
