Phiily South!

While it's pretty far from the real Philadelphia, Famous Philly's does a great job with it's Philly sandwiches. I'm not sure the place itself resembles a real Philly Restaurant, but it's a rather "rustic" looking place. They do offer a great variety of sandwiches and other meal choices with very... read more

Still one of the best cheesesteaks ever. Meaty, cheesey, love the roll! Thankfully I live in Pa where Amorosa rolls are in my grocery store. Always a must do stop when I visit Florida. Service was good. Prices reasonable. Busy place but worth the wait.

Really love these sandwiches but took 1 hr 20 minutes to receive our sandwiches. Especially when others were served before us that came in after us. Very disappointed

We stopped in after the Daytona 500 and the food was very good! Owner and staff were excellent! We didn't have to wait for anything. Definitely going to be a place we visit when we're back in the area.

A girls night out we decided to try the famous, much talked about Famous Philly's. It is a Sports bar, could use some updates...Loud, so if you want to talk forget it. We also thought the prices were high for what you got, and quite frankly not sure what everyone was raving about..Nothing special, reminded me of those steak ums...... More

We have been coming here for years. We moved away, and went to eat with family. We were very disappointed, the cheese steaks had increased in price & decreased in portion. Ok maybe understandable, however the meat was very tough with large pieces you could not even chew. The amount of steak in a sandwich has decreased tremendously. We were... More

This is where we head when we want a genuine philly cheese steak sandwich. This is a "true" joint. Nothing to look at but real good cheesesteak.

We always go to Famous Philly's when we are in Daytona. They serve the best cheese steaks south of PA. Great portions and great prices. Beer is ice cold. As long as you don't mind a little "rustic" atmosphere this is a great place to eat.

Four of us who are from the Philly area saw an ad for this place and decided to give it a try. We were delighted to have a genuine Philly Cheesesteak outside of Philadelphia! We liked them so much we went back again four days later - probably would have gone back sooner but Thanksgiving dinner pushed it out a... More
