“I just showed everyone my Philly Cheese O-Face!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013 via mobile

Best Philly Cheese I've had in CA. I asked a local the best place for lunch. He was right!!! I'll be coming back the next time I'm in Seal Beach and so should you.

“A bit of PHilly in the west coast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2011

Even thougth this is a small place. the owner is truly from Pennsylvania and has the flavor of cheese steak subs down pat. He even has Tasty cakes, so do your self a favor, if you want to explore some casual food from the City of Brotherly love (where I am from originally) drop in for some delicious luncheon fare.

“Best cheesesteak in or out of Philly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2008

Huge sandwich, great price. The meat had absolutely no gristle. Perfect meat, perfect store-baked roll, perfect toppings. I've never had a sandwich like this even by Philly. Add the store label cream soda and a Butterscotch Krimpet (Do you know how hard it is to find Tastykakes on the west coast?) and you're in business. And, yes, water ice. Felt like I was back home outside of Philly. Very friendly owner and very clean store. Thought it was Christmas again. I want to go back now!
