Description: We are a staff of friends and family who are proud to bring you the best tasting cheesesteaks and hoagies in Florida. Our bread is shipped down par-cooked from South Jersey, then baked fresh throughout the day, so you can enjoy authentic flavor straight from the oven. Each day we slice our rib-eye by hand to ensure our steak is tender and delicious; we would never dream of serving that pre-sliced stuff! We have original Cheez Whiz to give your cheesesteak that real Philadelphia flavor, the same way we ate them growing up. If that’s not your thing, we also offer American, Provolone, and Swiss cheeses, all from Dietz and Watson, who also provides all of our Italian meats (for an unforgettable Italian hoagie that will make you think you’re right back in Philly!). We have put our hearts into creating sandwiches we are proud to serve, and we hope you enjoy eating them as much as we enjoy making them.

Dont let the small size and hidden location of this place turn you away. THE BEST philly I have ever had. Not to mention it came with a side of some tastey cheese fries. Not the most healthy choice but hey a philly cheese steak isnt susposed to be. Cant say enough about this hole in the wall joint that... More

Just a little sandwich place, but they make a mean pork roll, egg, and cheese sandwich. It's the real deal !

Yeah, that horrible. The wings were over-cooked, sprinkled with garlic that came from Publix. I was afraid to try the dressing that came with it because it was that freaky. Wings were rubber. Philly Cheese didn't have cheese. Fries were drowned in Old Bay and had no other flavor. Would take Burger King over this crap

No restroom available. No key for the restroom in the building. The key was "lost". Had to walk across the street to the public restroom. I spent $50 including tip at this place and no available restroom. What the f##k? I am a frequent customer and I have even recommended this place to others. No more! I vote with my... More

We saw all the good reviews and came for some philly steak subs. I got the philly sub, (toppings are extra $- which was disappointing). My husband got the chicken philly with some extra toppings as well. First off, the sandwiches are about 8 inches long and maybe 3 inches wide (very thin and small). They had hardly any flavor...

My boyfriend and I recently decide to eat at South a Philly on our recent trip to St. Augustine. We both got the chicken philly. We added a side order of cheese fries. Both sandwiches were good.

The sandwich was very good but they need to offer a bigger size. Unfortunately, they only offer one size and they're not flexible about anything. Most legitimate Phillys I've had are a pretty big size but not at this locale. If I go back, I'll skip the fries and order two sandwiches instead.

We jumped off of the Red Train and wanted to get out of the heat. We didn't have any info or coupons for this place. The food was delicious! My husband had the Philly cheesesteak and I had the chicken salad hoagie. It was awesome! We also had cream cheese jalapeño poppers that were very tasty. Even without our coupons... More
