Fantabulous Cheesesteaks

Love this place. Great Philly cheesesteaks made to order. Nothing old sitting around. Fresh and tasty. Better go hungry as the sandwiches are big. Wish they still sold Tastycakes! Miss those from Philly.

I stopped in at lunch for a cheesesteak and found they were having a special. For only a few dollars more I could have fries and a fountain drink. I was told the fountain drinks didn't work, and I could choose any option from the cooler. I ended up with a bottle of birch beer..a regional favorite of mine from... More

You want a Philly... you are starved... tired of the same old same old go to Philly Bilmo's. I can't say too much about the quality and consistency of their Philly Sandwiches... Wow!

I eat lunch there every Monday and the sandwiches are great. They are full of meat and not huge loaves of bread with a wisp of sandwich meats. The service is excellent and the fries are very good. I believe this place has the best subs west of he Mississippi, at least of all the places I've tried.

They have the best pork sandwich. Its unique with the spicy mustard. The Philly sandwiches are also good but the roasted pork is my favorite.

Not the worst Philly but certainly not the best. Service is not the greatest nor is the selection. Quality if ingredients is average. Overall not anything special in my opinion.

The owner is from Philly and takes great pride in representing his home town. The cheesesteaks are delicious as is everything else on the menu. I highly recommend this if you are craving some Philly cheesesteaks!

We had read the ratings for Philly Bilmos on TripAdvisor, so decided to go there with some friends. We found ourselves very excited with the wonderful smells that greeted us. We chose the loaded cheese steak sandwiches. The food is made to order, and it took quite awhile to get ours, so it might not be a good spot to... More

A little on the spendy side but well worth that craving for a philly cheese steak sandwich. Serves bottled beer. Usually has a sports game on that you can watch while eating or waiting for your sandwich to be made.

I love the cheesesteaks here. I've tried both the loaded and the traditional - both were great. They are huge (so consider spitting even the smaller one) with someone else. I usually call ahead and take them home.
