We ate cheesesteaks here on a trip to Bethlehem/Easton. We stumbled onto this little gem walking around the area. I've never tasted a cheesesteak as wonderful as this one! If you are traveling through, you MUST stop and have a real cheesesteak! The one's that have claim to be the "famous" cheesesteak places in Philly don't hold a candle to... More

On this visit, finally they were not out of the Delmonico cheesesteak sandwich. But I regret ordering it. The meat is single slab of about 1/2 centimeter which was not very tasty, the taste in this sandwich is overpowered from the melty cheese and onions. The main problem is having to remove large chunks of grisle and fat from almost... More

Have been here a few times, as I work nearby, but don't find myself craving this place. Sandwiches are good, but a little pricey-there's a little sticker shock when you're rung up. But, they do offer fresh meats and cheeses for purchase, from their Italian deli, as well as other Italian specialties, so worth a look around. Last stop we... More

We had a 10 min wait to order and another 10 min to get our sandwiches. They were out of the Delmonico steak so we got the regular 10 in. steak sandwiches which came with sautéed onions and sauce, a tomato based sauce but not too heavy so it didn't overpower the sandwich. The sandwich is well loaded with meat.... More

You can't miss at Giacomo's! Great food! Cleanest food establishment you could find! The menu is made to order. Giacomo's is known for their cheesesteaks, but I think the chicken salad is the best ever! The subs are amazing...actually everything is good! Well worth the trip! Excellent!

After seeing all the great reviews for their cheesesteaks. I decided to go for lunch. Very disappointed. We ordered the Italian Cheesesteak, Delmonico Cheesesteak and mozzarella sticks. Both sandwiches were over cooked. The Delmonico also had a tough streak of fat that could not be eaten. Another patron had the Italian sub and it looked good. All in all not... More
