our mission


McGonagle’s specializes in authentic Philly Cheesesteaks. Our menu is simple and the prices are affordable! We have plenty of delicious options to satisfy all types of taste buds. It’s our goal to bring that same Philadelphia Cheesesteak that you have grown so fond of to San Diego. We are constantly innovating and adding new items to our menu so be sure to connect with us on Facebook and Twitter for all the latest news about McGonagle’s.

It is our mission to bring you the most authentic and delicious food with the absolute best service. We are always looking for new ways to grow and improve. For starters, we are introducing a new eco-friendly recycling program. We are also introducing a local charity donation initiative, where we will help feed the homeless population of our city.  We are using recycled materials to renovate our restaurant, and plan to have a whole new look that everyone can appreciate, even Mother Earth, by the end of 2013.

We would like to thank you for choosing McGonagle’s!

“My favorite, been there since McGonagle’s was at Reo Drive. Friendly service, delicious cheesesteaks, great fries, and it’s just a really cool place to go. They offer the 3 DOUBLE MEAT CHEESESTEAK CHALLENGE and you could win $50-100. They also offer free cheesefries if bring in your phone and show them that you liked their Facebook page.”

“Best cheesesteak I’ve had in 15 years! Always nice people working and fast service. A well hidden gem.”

“This place was even better than some spots I’ve had in Philly! I go out of my way now every chance I get to grab another plus their fries are well fried and not soggy, which doesn’t seem to be the norm these days. I’d suggest if you haven’t been, then go, ignore the haters I’ve seen a few bad reviews on every great place. Oh and it’s been the same lady working there every time I’ve been an she was very sweet and helpful”

“We have been looking for a great Philly Cheese place and this place was amazing. I found this place through a flyer in my junk mail. The hostess was such a sweet and friendly girl. McGonagles was clean and well decorated. I had coupons for a buy one get one free, so we ordered The Authentic Philly Cheese Steak (Steak, Grilled onions, Whiz) and The famous McG Cheese steak (Egg, steak, grilled onions, three cheeses and buffalo sauce).”
