“Lunch with an old friend”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014

Their Philly Cheese Steak is the best. The grilled onions make it that much better. Portions are outlandish, big enough for two meals.

“Great Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014 via mobile

I used to always eat here when I was in town. I don't get there much anymore but will definitely continue the practice. Great Philly Cheese and excellent staff

“Great cheese steak sub, skip the pizza.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

The cheese steak sub was delicious and big enough to split. Great flavor, great quality, great value. As far as the pizza, it was no different than a frozen $3 pizza that I can get at the grocery store, not worth the money at all. We came here for lunch but I think it would be better at night because it had a great bar food atmosphere. We stayed at a nearby hotel and chose this place because it was so close and we were tired and didn't feel like traveling all around to get something to eat.

“Sports Bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

The philly cheese steak sandwiches were good and the fried macaroni was great. This was definitely a sports bar.

“Not bad, good bar food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2014

Pretty crowned in the evening, and the service was a little slow, but with at least a good attitude. The cheese steaks are pretty good all considered. Lively bar scene with lots of sports on TV. I would go back here, but not make a special trip to do so. If you aren't real fussy and don't have over the top expectations, might be worth considering.
