As good as it gets !!!

I've had my share of cheese steaks in Philly but have to say this is AS GOOD IF NOT BETTER than those in Philly. Small place but don't let that fool you as it's Big on Flavor, Taste and Service....Clean as a whistle....Fries and homemade ranch dressing were too die for with just the right amount... read more

Small, clean, strip mall restaurant. Service was great and the cheese steak was VERY good. We spend time in the area in the winter, so always looking for a place we can return and this is a good one. You will not be disappointed.

By far the best Philly Cheese Steak around. Really ambitious menu for a small restaurant. Added outdoor seating is a plus. Great service, friendly atmosphere. A little of the beaten path but worth the trip

Hands down the best Philly cheese steak anywhere. The steak and cheese is prepared when ordered and you can watch them work their magic on the grill top. The sandwich IS THAT GOOD! If the line is out the door it is worth the wait. This is a popular spot and for good reason.

This small place has only about a dozen tables and all were filled, the rest of the places in the strip mall had gone out of business. There is a reason this place stayed open! Best cheesesteak ever, choice of w or wo hot peppers, really fresh bun, packed so full of goodness it's served with a fork. Came with... More

Went there for lunch and thought I was in So Phillie. Great rolls and it is the bread that makes the sandwich. I have been back three times and it is always packed. Amoroso rolls, Herrs chips and Tasty Cake!!!

Went for lunch, July 23 2014. Arrived at approximately 1230 and the place was full however they did there best to accommodate. There was one table available for 2 however there were 3 of us. They made room with a third chair and seated us right away. Once a table for 4 opened up they moved us over. They are... More

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...
