I've been here a few times now. First time I was certainly apprehensive about a self proclaimed "Authentic" Philly Cheesesteak house in Mississippi of all places. However, it was good and my father in law agreed. Second time, the next day, was also good. Third time the meat was a little tough and I forgot to get it with the... More

The service is very good, they will explain the menu to you if you haven't visited before. The food is really good and they give you plenty of choices besides the Philly Cheese. Very friendly staff and food is quickly prepared.

I got the toughest philly cheesesteak sandwich I ever had at this place. I also felt the stale tired rolls from Amarosos in Philly had spent too much time in the fridge. I will not go back to this place. I am have lived in Philly and this is not it....sorry...not the Philly here!

The staff was really friendly and the Philly cheese steak was the best I have had (Outside of Philly). Prices were very reasonable and I will be back!

This place is great. The food is delicious, fast, and comes out pipin' hot every time. The prices are good and it's always really clean. If you like Philly Cheese Steak sandwiches, you'll love Tony Nelson's.

If you do nothing else while you are in Gulfport, GO HERE!!! They have happy hour from 2pm-5pm M-F. I've never had a better cheesesteak and I've been looking for a long time. We ate there so the Italian Ice wouldn't waste in the car. We all ordered another to go so that we could eat it later.

This was my second time here. The last time coming over a year ago. Cashier not very friendly. Steak was full of grissle. I believe the meat servings was skimpy compared to previous visit. Disappointed.

We really like this place. Get an original "wit". White cheese and squirt a little ketchup on it. (Tony says that's the way they do it back home.) Sweet onion chips and fresh lemonade. Enjoy and don't burn your mouth!
