Glad we stopped here

I was told to stop in here while we visited Daytona Beach Shores. Yummy naughtyness, & glad we did. Our server was awesome too!

From the outside one might drive right by...but don't do that!!! Step inside to a nostalgic, friendly little diner where you will have the best Philly CheeseSteak Sandwich you've ever tasted. They also serve beer and wine, provide music from time to time and have the friendliest staff who are very attentive to your needs. I personally order mine with... More

We joined some fifteen friends to go to Famous Philly's. Our friends have been coming here for some time. I was pleased to have a such a selection of cheese and other ingredients. I couldn't ask for a better cheesesteak and everyone in our group had a great lunch and we will be back.

The best philly cheese steak in the area. This is the only place to go for a cheese steak. Very friendly and nice people always have a great time. The prices are great. They are huge I can't eat it all in one sitting.

cheesesteaks were fantastic. best we've had. good service. definitely has a hole in the wall bar feeling to it, even though it's not a 21+ over bar. i would probably not take my young kids here though. there were a couple guys here while we dined who were obviously intoxicated and being quite rude and obnoxious, especially toward their server....

This is not a 5 star restaurant. This place is a favorite for great Philly subs - doesn't look great from the outside and is a typical sports bar inside - but the food is top notch The jalapeño poppers were real crispy and the sauce for dipping was OUTSTANDING - just a little spicy bite in a sweet jelly...

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.
