Great cheesesteaks

Always stop here for cheesesteak with mushrooms when in Columbia. Delicious! A great bargain for a great cheesesteak.

This is an example of how a place can go from good to not good over the years. The food is no bargain at all, the steak sandwiches we had were dry and I mean as the Mojave Desert. Cold fries, Bad service. I give it an average because it may have been an "off" day, but they didn't take... More

The food at this restaurant is not as good as it used to be. They add too much onions to make up for other things that should be included. They do have a good cheeseburger sub. I still go here because the price is good and I like the deck. I guess from my point of view there is more... More

Food was below average, service was terrible. We received food that was cold, cheesesteaks with unrelated cheese, cold marinara. Worse yet our waitress was nothing short of neglectful and the indifferent and the foodrunners were kids with no direction, what a letdown.

For years everyone knew that Smith's had the best cheesesteaks in town. Don't ask me what made them change a good thing but their steaks are a far cry from what they used to be. If you like onions then by all means go there as they start each day piling the grill high with nothing but onions. Once they... More

We love the subs at Smith's! My husband likes the cheeseburger sub and I like the chicken sub. Good food at a reasonable price. They make the subs on really good rolls. I don't know where they get their onions but they are the sweetest onions I've ever tasted. Going back this weekend!

The worst sandwiches I have ever had! Do not eat here the food is awful. Got the famous cheesesteak and it was the most tasteless dry sandwich ever. No idea why people like this place
