This is the standard from which all other Philly cheese steaks should be measured. Great wings and signature fries too.

If your in the mood for cheese steak either eat in or take-out you won't be disappointed. It's good! I think its a chain, but honestly its a tasty steak. I've been to Pat's in Philly and while it may not be quite as good...its good! Don't expect fine dinning but the restaurant is clean and the help are friendly... More

variety of cheese steak subs which are pretty good for a quick lunch or dinner. Very casual dining. Small dining room, meant more as a take out place. Fries not that great, oily at best.

Excellent food and the owner and employees were super nice. The rolls and sweet peppers are brought in from Philly, which is what makes the cheesesteaks authentic. A great taste of home in CT!

After visiting Philadelphia years ago I searched constantly for that great cheesesteak flavor somewhere else. Here it is! Great food - the real deal - and owned by a great guy. You've got to try it if you're ever anywhere near Norwich, CT.

We have been going to Philly's since December, 2012 while going thru chemo. One of the nurses told us about Philly's and we had to try it. Well, we have been going there ever since, at least once or twice a month. Shem is a great person and the food is great. We always got the doctor, then we ordered... More

Shem and crew are serving up the best . Worth the trip. I can not wait to stop by again. There needs to be more of these so others can enjoy. Great Food for Foodies. Triple D should go here.

No cheese and overcharged me by $5.00 and when I told them they gave me only $3.00 back. Very sneaky and no cheese at all on these sandwiches.

I got exactly what I expected and paid for. The cheese steak was good, unhealthy, and left me more than happy. If you have time, pop in. They have TVs with football games on, a pleasant staff, and a great atmosphere.
