Cheese steak was the best in the valley but the employees were kind of "clicky" greeting their friends with joy but not overly friendly to out-of-towners

More of a bar than a sub shop but a decent cheesesteak. Good roll. There's nothing like a cheesesteak from Philadelphis but this was good.

A very nice laid back place to hang out, have a beer and a sandwich. I was there on a Friday nigh and they were setting up a DJ or bang, so it may get loud in there later in the evening.

Philly's Americana really really impressed my husband and I. It has a cool sports theme, tv's, pool tables, outside waterfront deck, great prices and food..the cheesesteaks are too die for. One of my ultimate favorites is called the Fat Walt, it is loaded with mushrooms, cheese, meat, bacon, and flavor. I've had other cheesesteaks from various places, including the popular... More
