Gonellas just became my favorite sandwich shop. Huge subs. They don't have paper thin slices of meat and cheese. Quick service, friendly staff , and if u like olives they have an olive bar

You order the sandwich by the number of layers of meat. They also have Tuna and Turkey. No Dine in, But get it to go and enjoy. Hard or soft roll, either is great.

Well worth the trip. Delicious subs starting at $5 and offering custom subs/sandwiches by the pound. Variety of meats available. Highly recommend the Gonella's regular sub for your first time. I tried the 18 layer this time and it was huge for $8.50. I think...More
