this place started out looking promising, but after one visit, that went out the window. Mediocre food, an owner sitting at the register constantly reprimanding his staff, and a greasy floor made me slide outta there....

Was excited about cheesesteaks on SI, but they are greasy & bland. Nice try, Shaggy, but no good. :(

Sorry but you could make a better cheese steak at home with your own steak-ums and cheese whiz. That's how they make their overpriced, quite small sandwiches. I'm telling you, save the gas, cook it at home at half the cost.

Great cheese steaks for the NYC area. They are as authentic to Philadelphia's as you'll get without driving down yourself.

Went here to pick up a sandwich to bring home for dinner. I got a steak sandwich with red peppers. When I got home and took a bite out of the sandwich I bit down on something hard. Bones? Something worse? Turns out it was the stem to the red pepper. They left the ENTIRE hard stem on the pepper.... More

I am a New Yorker who went to college in Philadelphia and lived in the city for six years. I know my cheesesteaks. This is a real Philadelphia cheesesteak. It tastes just like the ones at Pat's in South Philly,. They put a bit more Cheese Whiz than Pat's but that is a good difference., Also had a wonderful roast... More
