I have to agree with rachel h., Galco's has some very tasty sandwiches. I usually go for a regular or footlong Blockbuster. Since I grew up in the hood, I've been doing this for over 20 years. Well before Huell Howser, Food Network and the rest of the country discovered the now Soda Pop Stop. In addition to Soda Pop, they have a huge selection of candy. In all, Galco's has good eats and the soda and candies they offer will take you way back to your childhood.

One piece of advice, the sandwiches and candies are a good deal, but the sodas will run you $1.50 - 3 a pop.

Pros: cheap eats and candies

Cons: pop is a little pricey

This place has all the candy and soda you remember loving as a kid. I'm not much of a sweet-tooth type, but I do like me beer. Their selection is out of this world and you can mix and match to form your own six pack. Check out all the local NELA hotspots on my site at www.yorkblvd

Only in LA would you have the BevMo for old-time pop drinks. There are hundreds of obscure sodas, ades, juices, and root and ginger beers available, some straight out of the 50's, all in a beat up old supermarket. Be careful -- if you're the right type, you might sample one of everything.

Located on the main drag of Highland Park, Galco's is a taste of the old country. Yeah, it's an Italian deli, but it's all really a front for the real goods: a virtual storehouse of the world's finest sodas. Just a sampling: Hank's, Red Rock, A & W, Frostie, Dad's, NEHI, Moxie, etc. Even the Dr. Peppers and Cokes here are from the original recipe!

PROS: massive soda inventory, helpful staff, online ordering
CONS: short hours, some sodas expensive, location not the safest

My kids love this place. There are hundreds of bottled sodas and beer. I think there is a deli in the back. Fun place to shop.

Great selection of old time sodas and candy that will remind you of the 70's and earlier. They also have a unique collection of soda's and beers. www.sodapopstop.com. The staff is very helpful. Parking is convenient.

This is an entire grocery store devoted to bottled drinks. Any and every bottle soda is available and a variety of beers and other drinks. Amazing selection - real fun place to shop.

I patronized Galco's long before the hype (feature articules in LA Magazine and the LA Times), and believe me, it deserves every word of praise it has earned. Of course, you can spend hours upon hours marveling at the variety of sodas in neat little bottles. Ask an employee (or the owner, if you're lucky) and you'll probably get a story or two about certain favorites or the history of the shop. The employees are very nice and helpful. But Galco's isn't just about soda...they have a little delithat is affordable and delicious. A soda from the Midwest and a sub for lucnh...what could be better. Definitely worth the trip!

The best selection of sodas around bar none. They are very affordable and if you're in the mood, the store has an in-house deli, as well as a large stock of candy.

The owner, John, is so great with helping customers find just the right soda to try. If you're a first timer here, be careful. You could spend way more than you want. The choices are so many and so enticing that you can't help yourself from picking a bottle of every type of ginger ale...or grape...or strawberry...or my favorite, black cherry. We always have part of a case of the Mint Julep mixer at home. It works better on an upset tummy than 7up. If you're not a fanatic of ginger beer...beware of the Blenheim's. Some of their varieties should have warning labels. :-)

Have you ever wondered about soda pops you used to drink as a kid? I used to inquire as to whether I could find RC in a glass bottle. The solution to most any soda pop search can be found at the Galco Old World Grocery. Tucked away in an unpretentious neighborhood, the grocery store has 2 whole aisles dedicated to soda! You can find almost anything in a glass bottle, and it is so rewarding! I bring home a couple 6-packs every time I go. You see people there checking out every brand, smiling withmemories. The owner is a soda fan himself and goes out of his way to bring in pop from all parts of the country and even other countries. He doesn't charge an arm and a leg, either. Also, grab an awesome deli sandwich to go with those sodas- they aregreat! Well, well worth the drive.

Galco's is a hidden gem. They stock over 200 kinds of soda. Regional stuff you can't get anywhere else: Boylan's, Red Rock Cola (older than Coke), real Dr. Wells and Mr. Pibb, and Hires in bottles. Plus stuff you've never heard of: Kentucky Nip and Cheerwine. The owner loves to talk soda and he really knows how to recommend the right things. Stock up for a party, you'll be glad you did!
