The restaurant had a bit of charm but it wasn't clean. Guests cleared their own tables which is ok but no one wiped the tables. Salad was limp. Sandwich was ok but If that's the best Phoenix had to offer it doesn't say much. Would not take friends here or go out of my way to go again. Can't imagine... More

Stopped here for the first time after getting off the plane in Phoenix. About 10-15 minutes from the airport. Amazing sandwiches and small salad plates. The bread was delicious and they give you the option of pairing your sandwich with peperoncinis instead of a pickle. Love it.

We stopped here for lunch after the Home and Garden Show nearby. My husband and I split a sandwich and a salad....both were fantastic especially the bread. Really good. Just 2 things....the women's bathroom looked like it hadn't been cleaned in maybe 5 years?? Specifically, the floor. And, I don't know about other people, but I like to have a... More

I've been going to McGurkee's since I was a kid. I have never been disappointed.If you're into vegetarian sandwiches, get the veggie. It's my absolute favorite. I get that sandwich every time I go. My husband usually gets the JP Turkey sandwich. It is also delicious. Definitely check this place out.

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
