Way better than it looks

I have passed 'Taste of Philly on Nevada Ave a hundred times and never gave it much thought. Last week I decided to stop during lunch. When I walked in I was surprised to see the place was packed. The first thing I thought was "others must know something". I placed a 'to go' order. The wait... read more

Two locations in town, and the north one is new, but the food is the same. I have never had a better Philly Cheesesteak and the price is very reasonable. The old south location needs a bit of TLC, but is still great food. Recommend this to anyone. Great food.

Have been looking for a good cheesesteak but found a great one. Ordered a 12 inch "the works" and could only eat 1/2. One of the best cheesesteaks I've had bar none. In FL I would drive 40 miles for a good Cuban looks like I'll be driving the same distance from Canon City for this exceptional sandwich. Stopped at... More

Really enjoyed my sandwich, the atmosphere wasn't the best but I came for lunch, not atmosphere. Recommend you stop by for lunch.

They have the best cheese steak in town! Great food, nice people. It is hard to find a good cheese steak in Colorado Springs but you can stop looking, here it is.

Had The Works Philly but with Provolone. Service was great. Sandwich was a little dry but taste was very good. Fries were great. Price was reasonable. Little hole in the wall that should be tried if you like Philly Steak Sandwiches. They do have other American food as well.

After reading the reviews we decided to try it out while in Colorado Springs. Nevada street can be sketchy, but this place is a diamond in the rough. The food was excellent, and big portions.

The cheesesteak with everything is my favorite. The menu is pretty straightforward without much variety, but that is fine by me. They are simply focused on doing what they do best, which is delicious hot sandwiches. The atmosphere is nothing to write home about. In fact, the place is pretty much a dive. But the food is wonderful. Tip: Parking... More
