The last steak I got was terrible, stale bread that fell apart, steak full of gristle, really nasty. I worte the owner to ask what happened to the quality and... More

A group of us out riding stopped into Famous Philly. Somewhat your typical sports/biker bar look. Was seated quickly and server's were great. Never had to ask for a refill. (A peeve of mine) Ordered Cheese steak. It was good. Not my best. Had fries and onion rings which were also good. A little pricey. My girlfriend had a couple... More

Good food, and a unique place. People have written their names all over the walls tables chairs. DJ on Friday night. Great oldies music.

When you first walk in you can't help noticing that the place has character. From the pictures of old nascar drivers to the signatures on the walls and ceiling. The wait staff is very nice and helpful. Your order comes out fast so your first beer never has time to get warm. There is a good selection of sandwiches to... More

I recently stopped here as I had heard this was the place for Philly cheese steak sandwiches. I got the original with cheese whiz on it. When it arrives it looked good, though the cheese whiz was a little skimpy. My first taste was oh crap this is just frozen meat slices cooked up. I told my husband it wasn't... More

I liked everything down to the clasic florida restraunt style. Write on the walls kinda place! Even with the bar like atmosphere, was kid friendly. Everyone was awesome and friendly! The food left you dreaming from the mouth watering food!

There are a huge variety of philly cheese steaks to choose from. The ones I've tried were great, and the sandwiches are huge. The prices are fair, and there are a lot of big screens to watch different sports. The place is a little small, but I like the atmosphere. Some places like this you wouldn't feel comfortable bringing your... More

....that is just off of Flagler and behind a service station. Be aware that there is no indoor seating, but there is fairly ample outdoor seating available. The evening we ate, it was raining, so we grabbed an order to go back to our room. We split a cheese steak, which is huge. Loaded with steak and our choice of... More

We moved to Florida from New Jersey over 2 years ago. This was the first cheese steak and last from this place. I'll just wait to go home and get the real thing. This place looks like a run down hole, the ceiling is caving in over the prep area. There were 30 fresh onions on the prep table... Think... More

Went to bike week three years ago and was told by some locals that they were great cheesesteaks. Well to put it mildly unless you have had them in the Philly area you don't know what you are talking about in my eyes. I couldn't have been more wrong about the sandwiches there, they were delicious and were like a... More
