We are a staff of friends and family who are proud to bring you the best tasting cheesesteaks and hoagies in Florida. Our bread is shipped down par-cooked from South Jersey, then baked fresh throughout the day, so you can enjoy authentic flavor straight from the oven. Each day we slice our rib-eye by hand to ensure our steak is tender and delicious; we would never dream of serving that pre-sliced stuff! We have original Cheez Whiz to give your cheesesteak that real Philadelphia flavor, the same way we ate them growing up. If that’s not your thing, we also offer American, Provolone, and Swiss cheeses, all from Dietz and Watson, who also provides all of our Italian meats (for an unforgettable Italian hoagie that will make you think you’re right back in Philly!). We have put our hearts into creating sandwiches we are proud to serve, and we hope you enjoy eating them as much as we enjoy making them.

Great cheesesteaks!

We had the traditional cheesesteak (with cheese wiz), traditional cheesesteak (with provolone), cheesesteak hoagie (cheesesteak with lettuce and tomato), and the meatball sub. We also had regular fries and cheese fries. They have a super selection of bottle drinks as well as fountain drinks. The... read more

The best sandwich of Philly south is the greatest. Lots of shaved beef and tasty cheese. You cannot find any better.

Overpriced and the employee was not very polite. Got two philly cheesesteaks and he put so much wiz on them we could taste nothing else. Even the teenagers would not eat them. Spent 20$ on lunch and had to throw it away.

Employee at the register was very knowledgeable of their menu & preparation of their food. Four of us ordered the Philly style cheese steak sub (hoagie) and we were not disappointed. Mine was steak, provolone cheese, lettuce, tomato, mayo, fried onions, & green peppers on a delicious roll that was from Philly. I enjoyed every morsel. Although the food was... More

The food was great. I like the fact they had Herr's chip. You can only find them up north. I went back for a second time and just bought 2 bags of chips. They where short staff but they still got our food out hot and fresh.

Ordered 2 subs and they got both subs wrong. Zero customers so no reason not to get the simple order correct. Asked for a take out box for appetizers was told they have no boxes. ?? How do they do take out.?? Never be back Avoid this place.

Excellent cheesesteaks! Located in the historic district just steps away from the Lightner museum and Flagler College. This was our second trip and it was just as we remembered...GREAT! The only difference from our first visit was beer...for some reason they did not have beer due to some license issue but counter employee said beer will be back in about... More

Take it from this Philly girl, this is the real deal! Located in a cool historic building, the meat is chopped right, the cheese and bread are correct and they don't try to add green peppers! Service was really quick too!
