Cheesesteak and fries don't get any better than this. Some of the best fries and one of the best cheesesteaks I've ever eaten. My wife order the chicken cheesesteak which was great tasting also. I really like the way they melt the cheese in with the meat and grilled onions' darn near perfect. I love fair fries and these are... More

Oh my, oh my!! Really good hamburgers but the fries are going to be one of those foods that I think about. This place is a total dive. We actually saw people come in look around and leave while we were there. Don't be like them. Take a chance just for the fries.

The best food! My husband ordered a chili dog and I had hot beef cheesesteak sub and we split a cheesy fresh cut fries with the cheese on the side. They do not serve ice water by the glass – only bottled. The place is PACKED with nostalgia. There are pictures, most signed, to the owner Scott. I don’t think... More

Great little dive restaurant/shop for a cheesesteak sandwich and chili cheese fries. We arrived right around closing time, but the server was nice enough to provide us with a seat to eat. Service was great and don't let the clutter inside the restaurant fool you with regards to the quality of the food. I've had plenty of cheesesteak sandwiches in... More

We were directed here by the trolley driver and I have to admit, we were a little leery at first. All 9 of us tried to sit inside this little dining spot in the middle of a gift shop and decided it would be easier to sit outside. The food that came out of that tiny little kitchen was unbelievable.... More
