We went there for lunch. Tried the bacon Philly and the mushroom and pepper philly, neither were good...had a burnt flavor. The fries we're good though. Definitely would not return.

The cheese steak was ok, good size, nothing specific to complain about, but just ok. The fries were great and the order would easily feed 3 or 4. I wouldn't go out of my way to eat here again.

Our family loves this place. We eat here every vacation in the obx. Including twice this year. Their cheesesteaks are good for not being from the philly area. The italian sub is extremely good.

Like many of the reviews for Philly Steak Subs my take is that the Philly cheesesteaks are unreal. Our family of 6 were routinely saying while eating how incredible each bite was. We will likely have another round before our vacation is complete. My wife pointed out also that the onion rings are excellent. Beer battered. We got a basket... More

Awesome subs but call ahead to place your order. The subs were similar to the subs we have had at Pat and Genos in Philadelphia. They get very busy. We waited a half hour for our food.

Best cheesesteaks ever. From the original Pat's style with Whiz to the more contemporary steak subs all are amazing. Plus they don't lack on the meat they put on the sub.

These are the best cheese steaks I've ever had even edging out the Triangle Bar in Swissvale. They come loaded with meat, toppings, and cheese plus the bread is perfect for a giant hoagie by holding everything in. Highly recommend here for lunch or dinner.

It has become a tradition that every time I go to the Outer Banks eating lunch here is part of my itinerary! I always order their onion rings and a bacon cheese sub! So much bacon!!! The employees are nice and very patient, there is a lot to pick from. I would recommend this restaurant again and again.

We stopped here based on reviews. This place did not disappoint! My husband got the barbecue philly and added bacon, I got the pepper philly and wanted his the whole time. It needed the sauce, so get one with a sauce. You must go here!
