Best cheesesteaks outside of Philly

We are from Philly and outside of Jim's on South Street, this is our place for cheesesteaks when visiting our Son in Baton Rouge. Today we had lunch. We ordered a small classic and a small chicken cheesesteak. We made one steak a combo and split the fries. The combo came with a drink so we added a... read more

Good food, not great. The meat was not sliced like I expected, but that's not a bad thing. It was fresh cooked/made, and the bun was fresh and soft. I would go again but not drive across town for it.

We lived in Philly for 7 years so we are always on the look out for a good cheesesteak. Everyone claims to have a good one but very few actually do. Philly Me Up is pretty darn close to a true Philly Cheesesteak. We ordered a chicken cheesesteak and a regular cheesesteak with onions and cheese only. They were loaded... More

I always want a chicken cheesesteaks from here when I visit my son in Baton Rouge. We placed a carry out order of 5 cheesesteaks...some chicken, some steaks with variety of toppings and vegetables. The order was perfectly prepared. They even waited until I arrived to drop the fries so they would remain hot. It is always delicious.

Great cheesesteak. The chicken cheese was my fav and I lived in Philly for 8 years. Just like Philly...maybe even better. The Cajun chicken and Cajun steak were also good and meaty. You may order them with or without onion, peppers and mushrooms. All prepared to order. We loved our first order from here but they have really odd hours.... More

By far the best philly I have ever had!! Only downside... They get pretty busy at lunch time so make sure you get there a little early. Everything is made to order every time! Love it!!

I was born and raised in Baton Rouge, and I can honestly say until today that I had never had a Philly cheese steak. My husband heard about the restaurant from a fellow deputy sheriff, and after hearing his review, we both had to check it out. Oh my! It was amazing. I had The Loaded, and everything was cooked...

The food can't be beat. If your going for lunch it would be best to call ahead sometimes they are super busy. Also when dining in be prepaired to smell like a cheesesteaks the rest of the day. The kitcken opens up into the whole place filling the air with cheesesteak aroma. The staff is so nice and don't forget... More

Typically I don't have high expectations of food from out their area of origin, but this was definitely an exception. This is the best Philly Cheesesteak I've had since moving down South 4 years ago. They have a many different types you can order. They even have a local type Cajun cheesesteak. I can't wait to go back and sample... More
