It is what it is

No bones about it, low ceilings neighborhood bar atmosphere, Belly Busting real steak sandwich with option of cheese including cheese sauce. Service is prompt and attentive. We like the atmosphere, food and staff.

Locally popular at the junction of US 1 and SR 5A, you can size your order by the lengths listed on the menu. 7", 9", 18", 22" and what you want included in your cheese steak. Excellent fried onion rings, mushrooms, and many other choices. Prompt service, great biker bar, multiple TV's for viewing and great food! What else can... More

This place is a must for our annual trip to bike week. Not at all fancy but the cheesesteaks are excellent and the service is always great. The sub rolls are the freshest I've ever had. Never disappointed.

If you want the Best Philly Cheesesteak this is the place to go! Great variety to suit your taste done to perfection. Went to indulge last week, but it was closed for renovation, so check before going.

Dark, gloomy, and dirty! Many rave about the sandwiches, but we did not find them worthy of these raves. Perhaps it is because we were put off by the grime throughout the restaurant. Although we live close, we will not return.

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.

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 good staff and service. It's probably one of the more... More

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
