“No need to go to Philly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2011

You can drive to Philly and sit with the pigeons at Pat's or Gino's or you can go to Giacomo's and sit in an immaculately clean eatery and without a doubt eat one of the best tasting cheese steaks you will ever eat. Don't get me wrong, Pat's and Gino's are pretty good, but, this place is off the charts.

“Deserves the title of best cheesesteak!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2011

My sister-in-law said we had to dine here since this restaurant won the best cheesesteak contest sponsored by the local newspaper. We're senior citizens so we've had lots of cheesesteaks in 60 years and we agree-these are the best! They were not fatty, greasy, or soggy and the combination of cheese, onions, sauce, and meat was perfect on the toasted delicious bun!
