The Best Cheesesteak and Fries with Service to Match

I had an absolute blast here. The seating area inside is quite small and I ended up sharing a table with a couple from D.C. The cheesesteak was beefy and wonderfully seasoned with the grilled onions and cheese mixed in. The bun was toasted and the flavor profile almost reminded me of a Krystal or... read more

If you love fresh-cut fries with the skins on, go to this place. Really tasty and obviously a serious fries place because vinegar's on the table. Fun ambiance, too. Tight space, yes, so get there early or be prepared to wait a bit.

This was such a great place to eat. I read on Trip Advisor how great other people thought it was...and it was. The Cheesesteak subs and fries are outstanding. The staff was so wonderful. Can't wait to visit again.

3rd time in town, but the first time eating here. I can easily see why the fries are so popular!! Some of the best I've had in a long time. Will eat here again before I leave town! :)

I crave this when I'm not in town and I eat here most times I'm in town at least once. This trip I've eaten here nearly every day just because I feel so welcome by the owner. I love this place, orangeaid, chicken salad bands fries are to die for.
