All sandwiches are in Rocky style. A real recommendation when you are looking for a genuine Philly steak sandwich!

If you are craving a Philly Cheesesteak in Austin, check out Way South Philly. Sandwiches are great and service is fast. It is a great little food truck with tables outside so you can sit there or take it to go. Big portions. Highly recommend!

I only stopped at this food truck as it was the only one I could find open on a Saturday for lunch in the area. I am so happy that was the case. The sandwich is huge, and it is so flavorful. I normally would not order a Philly cheesesteak, but if this is what they really taste like when... More

A very busy truck on 6th with lots of custom and seating around the van. Very tasty sandwiches and friendly guys. Have loads of boxes games around for the kids to play. Not outstanding but did the trick

I spent a lot of time in the downtown Austin area over a three year period, mostly for live music and good bars, and there were many nights where I found our group at this same food truck park at 1 a.m. Every time I ate Way South Philly. The food is perfect for a late night, and I even... More

Has been in decline for some time. Apathetic employees and food quality have slipped. With my last visit I was too disappointed to go back again.

Stopped by this food truck for lunch. Had the chicken Paulie (chicken cheese-steak with mushrooms and cheezwhiz). Simply one of the best cheese-steaks I have had (and I have spent a lot of time in Philadelphia). The chicken was tender and seasoned nicely. The veggies were done well. And the bread was great....and with cheezwhiz top it off. A great... More

Went to South Philly last year just for the cheesesteaks, and Way South Philly is the real deal! Just as good as Pat's or Jim's in my book. I like the Paulie, wit wiz, onions and mushrooms.
