Fun environment, friendly staff and good sandwich

I stopped by for lunch while in town on business. The restaurant is small and decorated in a fun and funky style (license plates on the walls, bright colors, photos of customers wearing their t-shirts all over the world). It is small inside, but we were there at a odd time, so there was plenty of... read more

We headed in here for a quick bite to eat one night and we were blown away. The steaks were amazing and I loved being able to add my own spicy peppers as I wanted them. The atmosphere is somewhat diveish but I feel it only adds to the place. We were able to take a break and enjoy Carson... More

Originally from Philadelphia, I can appreciate a good cheese steak sandwich. I have tried both Uncle Sam's and Peppi's. I must say that if I had to choose one from the 3, it would be Southside Steaks. It is a sandwich shop, so don't expect the looks of a fine dining venue. More of a ma pa feel and it... More

Great food. Do not expect fine dining, but this place hits the craving spot. Their sandwiches have the perfect amount of cheese and meat and if you want vegetables. They are HUGE too. The fires are to die for. I heard loud banging and asked what it was. Yes they were cutting the fires themselves. I like that. I had... More

Uninspired fare, uninspired kitchen. Serviceable food, to be sure, but nothing special. There are several more interesting and competent kitchens within a ten minute walk.

I have been to southside steaks nearly a million times. I am a big fan. I almost always get the bacon chicken ranch sandwich. i really like it. now this place is not fine dining and at times in the past it has seemed a little grimy but they have cleaned the place up some in recent years. Make sure... More

I’m not much of a cheesesteak aficionado, but I do know a good sandwich when I eat one…and I had a good sandwich here. Declaring my cheesesteak ignorance, I asked the cashier (his name was Steve, I think) where to start. He asked me my preferences (something not too busy, some spice is okay), he suggested I get an “classic”... More

This was a great spot to stop at after the bars. Service was very quick and solid. Food is good -- ghost pepper sandwich is spicy but not ridiculous. Recommend the bacon and cheese fries

Southside Steaks is just what it appears to be, a decent working class place with above average late night food. Get the whiz.
