I originally heard about this place from an episode of Huell Howser's "California's Gold," so I made the pilgrimage. So much fun to wander aisles upon aisles of obscure, regional soda pops. I'm not even a soda drinker, but I had to purchase a few of the more unique ones, which could be made into stellar cocktails! They also have a great selection of hard-to-find candy. There's a deli counter here, too, if you're hankering for a sandwich.

A blast from your childhood past ..

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.

She Needs To Smile!

I like the French dipped sandwich and the Blockbuster, but the lady that makes them never smiles. I feel intimidated to order a sandwich. There not as good as Phillipe's(located near Olvera St.), but they are okay. The counter is pretty empty. There's not a large variety of side orders or cold cuts. They do have a huge amount and variety of old time sodas!

Sweet-Teeth and Beer Lover Come Together

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

Soda Heaven

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. :-)

Get your soda pop here

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!
