Long Live Galco's. The kids know the place as the real Willy Wonka's. The "Mom and Pop" store personified.

Galco's is a fun place but not for a sandwich. If I'm not mistaken, they only have one bread option. Would it kill them to invest in a panini maker?

Still good to get the word out about all the "indy" options in the area for a good sandwich, and help keep us out of the formula recipe, franchises from Hell.
