They wore No gloves and No hairnets but handling the food, scratching their hair and digging in their shirts.

Don't go here! Wait until you get... More

Good, not great experience. Nothing bad to say, but the overall experience could be better. Cheesesteaks made to order, but take a while, especially when they are busy. Beef has been both moist and flavorful and dry and tasteless on various visits. We do go back from time to time, but always wonder what it will be like. Net, can... More

I went there with a friend. When we walked through the door it was awkwardly quiet and no one acknowledged either one of us. The cook had an arrogant attitude and the food was unseasoned and sour tasting. No one bothered to help us out or answer any questions. I don't recommend it to anyone.

Havnig traveled a bit, this place has nothing unique to offer, and nothign to distinguish it from any other cheese steak sandwich in the area. I had to try it once, but doubt I will be back.

I found my NY style pizza and now I've found my Philly! From the moment I stepped inside, I knew it was going to be great! Has that great small sub shop atmosphere that you only find in the Northeast. None of that chain stuff you find down here.

If you've had Pat's or Geno's cheesesteaks you'll love the "Philadelphian"authentic Philly cheesesteak; I'll be back! I've passed this restaurant a hundred times finally decided to give it a try and now I'm hooked!
