Great pizza and cheesesteaks... 60s ambiance

Thunderbird has been a staple of Broomall for years. They make some of the best pizzas in the area and their cheesesteaks are classic. Be sure to check out all the memorabilia in the restaurant. You'll feel like you've gone back into the 60s!

This is our "go to" place for Philadelphia Cheese steaks and hoagies. Dine is is small but comfortable. We don't eat in very often but takeout a lot. Wide variety of Italian sandwiches, pizza and other specialties.

Friendly place with great cheese steaks. Could use a good cleaning as the condiments on the tables are greasy. I get mine to go.

I'm an out-of-towner now, but anytime I'm back in town, T-bird is such a necessary stop. This place is an institution! The source of my family's pizza nites. The best cheesesteaks, yeah chicken-steaks, too!! Great Hoagies, great anything-on-a-long-roll! I'm always surprised and happy to see people visiting from elsewhere (once as far away as Germany) who've been told to stop... More

Friendly people who make great cheese steaks. This year we called our order in ahead of time and it was ready for us upon arrival. The Thunderbird gets very busy, especially at lunch time.

We attended a family reunion that included 2 visits to Thunderbird. Friday I had my perfect cheesesteak with fried onions and cherry peppers and wife had an Italian Hoagie. Perfect! Our 2nd visit was to get hoagies for our flight home. Thunderbird put the olive oil in the side and isolated the veggies and meat from the bread using wax... More

I am disappointed with "The Bird" overall. I grew up here and that was the place to go. Now it is Alfredo's up in the row of stores near Swiss Farms Servings here are poor and price is still up there. Awfully small inside for mopre than 2 people at a table Shakes ares good though

There is no better place to go than right on the Pike in Broomall, for the best milkshakes and cheesesteaks around. Memorabilia of this cute little town surrounds you. I grew up with this place.
