Service was a little slow, but the sandwich was good. The sweet potato fries were a bit overdone. Good location downtown near the waterfront.

Went late on a Saturday night, parking in St. Augustine near the square is awful. Finally found something and walked the 5 blocks. My salad was very very good and husband really enjoyed the cheesesteak sandwich. Worth eating at if you are already near by.

Just was you would expect from a good cheesesteak sandwich. Tender and juicy and just the right amount of cheese

Recently went to "Jimmy's" in Philly and had a TRUE Philly Cheesesteak. Thus, to compare these 2 places it is plain as day that the St. Augustine location is not a taste of Philly.🙁 Sorry the sandwich was soggy and not up to the bar. I guess if your not from Philly it's ok to enjoy and dream of Rocky.

Very good food. Very clean self serve cafe. Very nice for a stop while visiting Ole Town. Mid afternoon meant no line and quick service. Try the Italian Chef salad!

We walked into this place at 1:00 pm looking to get a philly cheese steak , three employees standing at the counter and no one acknowledges us. finally I speak up and say "do we just sit anywhere ? " and his reply was " we're not really open yet ". what the heck does that mean are you open... More

If I was rich I would pay to have this food express shipped to me. The chicken buster has the perfect combination of quality ingredients. Burgers, cheese fries and funnel cake sticks were delicious! Staff was friendly and I will return everytime I visit St. Augustine. Best food of our entire trip!

Description
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.
