Where sandwich is king.
Campi's is a small restaurant in the 19th Ward, just north of the Scottsville Road/390 intersection. They are best known for the massive steak sandwiches called "Bombers." Watching a person eat an entire bomber in a single sitting is a sight to see because the sandwiches are at least a foot in diameter.
On October 19, 2011, the restaurant was featured on Man v. Food Nation where Adam Richman reports on the Italian Sausage Bomber. A video of this scene has been uploaded to the Travel Channel website.

2007-08-15 07:43:58 The decor inside has always fascinated me. You've got a TV tuned to Fox up on a shelf in the waiting area, along with some video games and the bathrooms that are also in that same small space are labeled in Italian(?). In the dining area, you're made to feel like you're eating at a diner table on the outside of a barn.
We usually just end up getting the chicken sandwich and reuben specials to go. —DaveMahon
2008-11-04 13:52:43 Tried their famous "Steak Bomber". It's basically a steak sandwich served on a huge flat hamburger roll. Diameter wise it looks pretty big, but there wasn't too much meat inside . I'm no steak sandwich expert but it wasn't anything special and ran about $6 Sides were pretty expensive, $2+ for a tiny "sauce container" of coleslaw and ~$3.50 for about 6 onion rings —Drogean
2010-06-28 15:53:06 I have been there along time ago and it was great. Huge great tasting steak sandwich.. Just went again. WOW!!! what a change. the first thing the grill guy did was grab some steak and use a scale!!! Made me think where am i ARBY"S!!! when i got the sandwich with comes with either hot or sweet peppers and onions you could count both of them on one hand... thats right 5 littl pepper rings and maybe not even that slivers of onion!! It is sad that such a rochester icon has gone to the CHEAP side.. —mattmuller
2011-01-12 20:52:00 While not quite meeting the expectations of the mystical status sandwich... Campi's steak bomber is definitely pretty good. —NicoD
2015-01-16 12:58:40 Best steak sandwiches around. I used to drive by this place all the time and wonder what the heck it was - the sign and building look like they haven't changed in 40 years. I only recently went for the first time with a friend who grew up nearby and was really impressed. Steak sandwich with Rochester-style hot meat sauce on top? And some excellent fries to go with it? Yes please.
The staff are really nice, too. —MattDana
