Great for a quick cheap meal

We were tired and it was close and didn't want to spend the big price in the hotel. The food was basic and good and the staff pleasant. They gave us good advice for ice cream!

We stayed across the street at the Double Tree 6 nights and ate here 3 of them. Their cheesesteaks are simple, non-greasy and made fresh in front of you. We did not try the pizza, but it looked great and was huge in size by the slice compared to the price. I saw negative comments about the attitude of the... More

I had the cheesesteak special for $9 with fries and a drink and what I actually got was a steak sandwich with no onions and no cheese. The fries were soggy and undercooked. The cooks need to be trained how to make good subs. The bread was stale tasting and cold. Luckily I went to Jim's Steaks and Tony Lukes... More

I had just checked into the Double Tree Hotel in Center City. Across the street was Mama Angelina's. Not much to look at but the place was packed and that was enough for me to pay a visit. There was no room to sit so my cheese steak was to go. Not a bad price and a great steak. If... More

There were four very hungry people on a Sunday night after The Who concert. It was 11:15 and the bar we were at had already closed the kitchen. Actually that is always an issue in Philly, restaurants don't stay open very late if you are looking for food. Our daughters boyfriend got on his phone and knew places that might... More

Very good pizza with generous toppings and they gave us paper plates so we could enjoy this in our hotel rooms right across the street

This is a non descript pizza and cheesesteak joint located in downtown Philly. I came here because the hotel that I was staying at (Hyatt at the Bellevue) did not have a Philly Cheesesteak on their room service menu. As you walk in, you will see that there is nothing that stands out about the actual bones of the restaurant....The... More
