I last reviewed Dan's 2 years ago, and figured I'd update my experiences as a regular summer customer. Overall, this place is still the best blue-collar lunch in the bay, if you want what's on the menu and don't care about ambience. The occasional complaints I've read here are not representative of a typical visit. Salads, paninis and cheesesteaks will... More

cheesesteak wit was really good...juicy, messy, well-seasoned beef with a great green pepper flavor. I ordered one for my wife without mushrooms and it was delivered with them. Also, line cook had his food prep gloves on while messing with his iPhone screen, then reached the same hand in the freezer bag of fries -- if you're going to slack... More

This is amongts the very best original cheesteak sandwiches one can get. As good as Jimmy's in Philadelphia. We tried both recently and our family concluded that they were both equally good!

Dan's offers an authentic, contemporary and personable experience worth checking out. All and all, this diner out-classes the other restaurants on the street.

We stopped here for an early dinner and had the Philly steak panini and the Betsey Ross salad. The panini had peppers, onions, and some kind of white cheese...it was just ok but kind of bland. The salad was edible but certainly not gourmet, just what you'd expect from a fast-food type place. Based on the others' reviews, I get... More

They make it the way you want. I'll take mine with cheese whiz. The place is small and usually packed. So take it to go and sit on the village dock.

After our Uncle Sam's Boat Tour, we walked up James St. and decided to get sandwiches here. It's a really small operation - think the size of a hole in the wall deli; there are four tables inside as well as a handful outdoors. The cheesesteaks were awesome and I'd definitely go back if I needed a quick sandwich.

I thought the service was quick and the Philly Cheesesteak sandwich was very tasty. I would definitely go there again next time I am in that area. There is not too much seating inside, but there are a few table outside.
