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 wife ordered the small. Cooked to order. Excellent!!! Loaded with steak, cheese and bell peppers! Next time i will asked for additional bell... More

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

The Philly cheese steak sandwiches are great but I really enjoyed the grilled shrimp sandwiches. The shrimp are piled on the sandwich. The sandwiches are messy to eat but very delicious. I can't eat the entire sandwich so I often share and don't mind paying the price. Wish they had longer evening/weekend hours. They close very early in the evening.... More

I too am orginally from the Philly area and this is the real thing. In fact, the last cheesesteak I had in Philly wasn't as good as "Philly Me Up!" Yes, it is not the cheapest sandwich in town because it is steak so if you are expecting to pay McDonald's prices- that kind of fast food it is not.... More
