The food is authentic Philly and absolutely delicious. Don't pass up the fries either. The people working there are really nice.

Yep, simply excellent cheesesteak. The 12" bacon cheesesteak is almost most too much for one meal. Almost. Soft toasted bun. Lots of bacon. And tons of beef. Best ever? Too subjective, but certainly among the best *I* have ever had. Being from Chicagoland, it's tough to find a good cheesesteak back home and so I seek them out when on... More

I have had several philly cheese steak subs and this was the best. The atmosphere is also very laid back and comfortable. Also the onion rings are the best I have had in a long time.

OMG the cheese steak is awesome. One of the best we have ever had. Very nice service. Great to eat in or take home and eat. Great value. We had to eat there three times on our trip. Can't wait til we are back in the spring to eat there again. Great friendly staff.

Our first night tradition upon arriving at the beach was to order pizza. But none of the pizza places in Corolla are rated very highly by this community, and Philly Steak Subs is not only a favorite, but located near the Food Lion which was our next stop. This was an inspired choice. Our group of six got a variety... More

We needed a quick bite to eat on our drive through Corolla and based on other reviewers stopped here for a cheesesteak. Now, I'm not from Philly but my Dad grew up there and I go there every year. I grew up eating Philly Cheesesteaks from Philly, only. And this is pretty dang close to what you can get in... More

The sandwich and onion rings were delicious and we sampled the French fries of one of the other couples in our group....they were great. The sub was a very good value.....chock full of meat... More

Being from Central Jersey, I was skeptical that they could make a decent cheese steak. The problem with most places around the country is the roll. Anybody can fry up some steak and toss on some cheese and onions, but if the roll isn't top notch, the sandwich is just okay. Well, Phily Steak Subs gets it right. The rolls... More

This was the first place we stopped before going to our rental house in Corolla. The staff was quick and attentive and they have beer and bar. I got the BLT Philly Cheesesteak and it was everything I expected and more. The food was piping hot and delicious.
