Better than NYC?

I recently took my 15-year-old son and my seven-year-old grandson to New York City. Next to our hotel in Midtown there was a deli that served Philly cheesesteak sandwiches. They got hooked on those sandwiches. When we returned to Utah, I bought a Philly cheesesteak sandwich from this restaurant... read more

This place is a dive but it has the best Philly cheese sandwiches. It's not a place to impress a date. But if you like cheap and delicious sandwiches this is the place. Their french fries are big and fat ones with the skins on. A small order brings you a basket full. I have only ordered the Philadelphian sandwich... More

The sight and smell is nauseating but they actually have really good sandwiches though I don't think I would go there again.....dirty, cramped, and smokey. Being a clean freak, I would really hate to see what the kitchen looks like. Recommend to get your sandwich to go.

Non-expensive, Great Phillies! ive been coming here for quite awhile. Service is alright, and the place could use a good deep cleaning along with some re decorating but I don't mind it all too much.

My wife, kids, and I love this place. We enjoy it at lease twice a month on Sundays after church. That is one of the perks my kids look forward to going and having the best Cheese Steak Sandwiches in SLC.

This is my favorite sandwich place. NEVER disappointed with the quality or the taste. Price is very reasonable for what you get. I am a little worried though as they seem to be keeping the place much more tidy than they have in the past. That might mean more customer and that might mean I have to wait for a... More

Sandy is my hometown but I now live in Washington so there are certain things that I really miss and make me feel like I’m home when we visit and this place it one of them. I love their turkey, avocado and sprout with the works, but my husband would crawl the 900+ miles on hand and knee for their... More

The Philadelphian is delicious and inexpensive. I mean really, it's absolutely delicious if you love greasy-spoon food. The fries are the best part. A "regular" fry will feed 2 people easily, 3 if you're those skinny folk. The fry sauce is delicious. You can't go wrong with the classy philly cheese sandwhich, although some people like the bbq sandwich too.... More

Yes it is a typical greasy spoon. I don't know they have cleaned last. How do they pass their food inspections? Are they paying the state inspectors off with a Phlly. When you order, order by phone run in and pick your order without looking at the floor and behind the counter and where they store their food. The sandwiches... More

Yes it is a typical greasy spoon. They have painted and cleaned up and it still smells like grease. But...there are times when I NEED one of the sandwiches! Also, some people like the tiny stick like fries they sell at other places, and sometimes I do to. But when you feel the need for the thick greasy fries mixed... More
