The cheesesteak sandwiches were absolutely delicious!! I would rank it in the top 3. The service was good and the food came out surprisingly fast. I will definitely be back.

They were....and did NOT disappoint! Cheesesteaks were PACKED full of meat, seasoned great. Just wonderful. I can't say it really exceeded my expectations but they were already REALLY high after reading all the reviews. Great atmosphere. Great service. Great cheesesteaks. Will be a stop every time we come through now. Great job guys!!!

The food is decent, but this is the south where people are supposed to be friendly. The girl working the register is extremely unfriendly. I've started going next door where the staff is happy to see you.

Huge cheesesteak, packed with meat. Order the Whiz Wit', you won't regret it. As to some of the complaints re: service, subs were served up fast, hot, and delicious. It's no-nonsense though, but don't mistake that for unfriendly.

Being from Philadelphia, I was skeptical about a cheesesteak shop in Corolla! Well, I am a believer now! These are the best cheesesteaks I have ever had. This is our third time back and they are consistently delicious! A little pricey, but worth it! The sandwiches are packed with steak and the rolls are amazing. Try the onion rings too!

We got subs here 4 times. The 1st time the help were not friendly at all. To the point of uncomfortable. We decided to give them a 2nd chance. Guess they got there act together. It was like going into a totally different place. The reason we gave them another chance was because the food was very fresh and tasty.

I ordered a philly and small fry. After oordering I asked the woman if they had ESPN 3 available on any of the TV's. I got a response of "I have no idea!" No offer to ask someone either. I know she isn't a new employee because I saw her last year. The next customer walked up and the woman... More

Was in town on vacation and stopped in with 1 other person for lunch. Place was busy but not packed. Table we sat at was a little salty from the last diners but overall the place was clean and neat. Food took about 10 minutes - order was a couple of cheese steaks and fries. First thing I noticed was... More

Took my family (2+3kids) with expectation to have good meal and time. Food actually was not bad but not perfect. What attract attention => $12 basic sub and you have to pay for water that raising cost to $15 min plus ridiculous tax (expected) and suggested tip pre printed on check which is calculated on taxed amount . Toys prizes... More
