Small hole in the wall place decorated with photographic murals of Philly. Eat in or carry out. Not just the murals will remind you of Philly, the rolls come from Amorosos' Bakery and the sandwiches are well constructed with generous portions and fresh ingredients. Reasonable prices.

Yes; that's what you'll ask yourself when you visit South Street Steaks in Bethesda. Are they as good as Geno's...Pats? Maybe, but there isn't the local color of visiting these two venerable establishments. For that, you'll need to make the trek to Philly. But if you want a REAL Philly cheese steak experience without the three-hour drive, try South Street... More

Great place with plenty of seating. The French fries are some of the best I have ever had. Thick and crispy. The cheesesteak was big and the meat was flavorful. The amount of steak they put on is quite large. Could use just a bit more onion and cheese whiz, but overall a great sub. Definitely recommend if you are... More

My kids and I love this place. Great cheesesteaks! I always get the Chicken Steak with the Works, and my son gets the plain cheesesteak, nothing on it except Cheese Wiz. The fries are great too. The only problem is that if I get a foot long, I always eat the entire thing in one sitting even though it is... More

Maybe the only cheesesteaks in Bethesda. The place is about as close to 'fast food' as you can get for Bethesda, but it is greasy and delicious. Their cheezwhiz is delicious and everything is very tasty and very filling. The fries are amazing and plentiful! This place is great for a solid, satisfying meal.

A little hard to find in Bethesda, MD. If you can't make it to Philly for the real thing, this is the best in the DC area.

South Street Steaks bills itself as a sub shop established to bring South Philadelphia cheese steaks to the Washington, DC area. They do a pretty good job. The bread, meat and cheese are good. The prep is good. The service is with a smile and prompt. The sandwiches are big enough and a regular order of fries is substantial. The... More
