Grew up in Philadelphia. Have been checking out all the cheesesteak places in the three-county area around Manatee, Sarasota and Charlotte counties for ten years. These people use real rib eye and Amorso rolls. Doesn't get better than this except in in South Philadelphia. Just doesn't. This is home cookin', mother's milk, or whatever else you want to call it.... More

I had always wanted to try this place and finally had birthday lunch there. I love Philly Cheese steak sandwiches, but this one was terrible. It was all ground up like hamburger. Server must have been having a bad day. They didn't seat us, so we chose a table for four (there were two of us). Server came by after... More

Okay-- cheesesteak is the only thing I've ever had here, and they're awesome! South Philly is a small place with about ten tables seating about 30. They're busy at lunch and seem to do a steady business at all hours including 3:30 in the afternoon when I was recently there. Phillies cooked to order usually take about 5-10 minutes, never... More

Crowded at lunch, so either arrive early or plan to eat outside. Friendly service. Small restaurant, crowded tables. Prices a little expensive for subs, but apparently no one complains. Lots of IMG folks.

We first went for the philly cheese steak but return frequently because they have a variety of delicious food on the menu. Homemade soups are very good. Bleucheese burger yummy. Salads are always fresh and plentiful. Servers do a great job even at the busiest times.

Great little "hole in the wall" that serves a great cheesesteak. They serve lots of other home cooked meals but with cheesesteaks this good, it's all I ever get. Onion rings are good too, especially if you get them "extra crispy". We try to get there at least once a week.

The cheesesteak sandwiches at South Philly are by far the best in the area, and believe me, we've sampled them all! The steak is quality meat, the cheese is not cheese wiz, and the rolls are always fresh and delicious. Unfortunately I can't tell you how any of the other food is because we always gravitate to the cheesesteak sandwich.... More

Don't kill the cook!!!!....... but if you wanted to take a swipe at the waitresses it wouldn't break my heart. Ladies, it's not my fault it's season down here in beautiful Bradenton and it's also NOT my fault you didn't staff your establishment to handle the increase in customers. My wife and I just wanted a good cheesesteak and thanks... More

Welcome to a taste of Philadelphia in SW Florida. My best friend and I were ravished after a longtime not eating and he wanted a Philly cheese steak, something I have never had until today January 26,2013. WOW have I been missing out big time! We arrived at 3pm and decided to eat outside since the weather was so nice... More

After a rocky start (we came in behind another couple and the place was busy) we had an enjoyable meal. There was nothing to indicate seating yourself or take out counter and we were left standing there until we finally spoke up. A greeting or some acknowledgement would have been nice, and easy enough as the place is a small... More
