You go here for the great, authentic cheesesteaks not the ambience. From the outside, you might be tempted to just keep driving...but DON'T!! This is the best cheesesteak in Florida - we drive 45 miles each way on a regular basis for a sandwich.

The outside of this place is very "rustic" with a not-so-great parking lot, but the inside is clean, including the rest rooms. We like the lunch crowd. Philly cheese steak original sandwich is hot and very tasty, as is the plain meat type that my hubby likes. The small size is perfect for us and very filling. The small order... More

Service was great! Food was improved from last time. Decided to try again, was much better all around. I believe they have extended their menu. Food was very good, this time.

I'll have to say right up front, that this is definitely not the best Philly Cheese Steak around. Mine was the greasiest I have ever had. The roll absorbed the grease, so it was a soggy mess. I have seen their expensive full color ads and thought it would be more. Very disappointed.

We come from eastern Pennsylvania where good cheese steak sandwiches are reasonably common. This place has the best we have had here in Florida, but the place itself isn't that great and the service is OK. For what you get the price seemed a bit high. Nevertheless we do end up here if we get the itch for a steak... More

Cheese steak was good but mine wasn't as stuffed as my husbands. Better than your average cheese steak, but it didn't knock my socks off. French fries were a major rip off at $4.95 per serving and again, good but nothing special.

We have family that lives in the area. We love this place and it is usually where we eat our first meal when visiting. It's a lovely dive! Nice staff, fun music and usually fantastic food. I have reviewed FP's before and gave them a solid 5. Something was amiss this trip. Orders were not right. The other adults ordered... More

We moved to the area three years ago and one of the things we missed about living so close to Philly was an authentic Philly cheesesteak. Many claimed to have them, even Checker's (which is laughable!). None even came close!!!!! Then we had a customer tell us about Famous Philly's and even though he ranted and raved about how good...
