If sandwiches were inverted, the smell of freshly baked salami baguettes would waft through Italian thoroughfares, and pigeons would feast on meat crumbs each morning. Order properly ordered deli treats with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $14 worth of pizza, deli sandwiches, and specialty sodas at Falcone's. This Groupon is valid at the North May Avenue and Johnny Bench Drive locations.
Deli-meat missionary Danny Falcone emigrated from New York's Little Italy to bring a menu of Falcone-family favorites to Oklahoma City. A hot sandwich, such as the meatball parmigiana ($7.95), makes an Italian classic accessible in the forkless wasteland of lunch. A slice of fried pizza ($3) satisfies triangular cravings, and an entire square Sicilian pie corners growling stomachs ($16.99). Try a Manhattan Special soda, which washes down deli delights in a sugary sarsaparilla bath or tickles sugar tusks with vanilla bean-y bubbles. For those who prefer to eat at home, where there’s a comfortable armchair and no unfamiliar ghosts, by-the-pound deli items offer up olives stuffed with prosciutto, garlic, jalapeño, and cheese as well as imported Italian artichokes.
When you go to Falcone's, it doesn't matter if you show up alone or with your extended family—they'll have a pizza that's just your size. Pick up a slice for the road or stay and split an 18-inch Bianca or margarita pizza with friends. Whole pizzas can also don a custom variety of toppings, allowing customers to get creative with their food. The rest of the menu consists of hot sandwiches, pasta, and Italian snacks, including homemade meatballs and garlic knots. When given two hours of notice, the kitchen can also prepare a dinner tray of meat or cheese lasagna fit for a family of eight or one moderately hungry ogre.
