Galligaskins is the oldest sub shop in the state of Texas. The first Galligaskins opened in 1972 near SMU. The Galligaskins Sub was the creation of three guys who went to college in Boston, MA. They fell in love with the Boston Style of Subs and wanted to reproduce them in Texas since no one else was making them here. The Sub Shop was a success and spawned additional locations in Dallas, Arlington, Euless and Fort Worth. In the late 70’s and early 80’s the owners decided to split the stores up and go their separate ways.
In 2000 the Diomede family purchased the Galligaskins Submarine Sandwich Shop in Fort Worth which opened in 1973. The tradition remains the same today almost 40 years later. Galligaskins still cuts all of its own meats and cheeses including the steak for the famous #11 cheese steak sub. The sub rolls are baked fresh daily using the Boston style recipe. All subs are dressed with our made from scratch Italian Galli Oil and topped with our famous garnishes of lettuce, tomato, onions and pickle pepper mix. Galligaskins doesn’t stop there, marinara, meatballs, broccoli cheese soup, chili, ranch dressing, french fries, potato salad & pasta salad are all made from scratch daily. Joey Diomede says, “There are so many traditions at Galligaskins it is truly a great feeling to be a part of a Fort Worth icon. It is our continued goal to deliver the best product possible, with sincere, speedy service in a family friendly environment.”
