Like a Russian nesting doll and the thick skin that all professional wrestlers are born with, sandwiches are composed of many layers. Dive into tasty layers with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of sandwiches and more at Gandolfo's New York Delicatessen in Tempe.
Gandolfo's slices up fresh meats daily and flings more than 70 different sandwiches out the window of a yellow cab in true NYC style. The menu is laden with bread-bordered options such as the piping-hot Mama Leone ($5.49/half order, $8.79/whole order), the meatless Madison Square Garden ($6.09), and a Knuckle sandwich ($8.69)—hot pastrami on sourdough with cheddar, mozzarella, parmesan, lettuce, tomatoes, marinated mushrooms, olives, mayo, and butter. Gandolfo's artisans also carve sandwiches from meat media such as chicken breast ($4.69–$8.89), roast beef ($4.49–$8.89), and turkey ($4.49–$8.99).
The bustling deli is decked with glass display cases and stainless-steel counters that corral meat slicers, sandwich stackers, and a rambunctious hoagie mascot. Diners sit at cozy tables awash in New York City décor such as Jets banners, skyline photographs, and several of Derek Jeter's sunflower seeds.
Gandolfo’s New York Deli
Emulating a true-to-life New York deli, the interior at Gandolfo’s conjures the bustling streets of the Big Apple without the clamor of subways or the rush of the city. Inside each franchise—Gandolfo's locations, like New York City's five boroughs, are spread across 15 states—New York Jets posters and Statues of Liberty don the walls, overlooking helpings of more than 70 New York–themed sandwiches. From the Long Island chicken salad to the pastrami-stuffed King of Queens, each variety comes piled high atop a freshly baked hero or kaiser roll or sourdough, wheat, or rye bread. The deli also sates Manhattan–size appetites with chili-soaked Nathan’s hot dogs and relieves morning cravings with bagels buried beneath turkey and roast beef.
