My son and I stopped here after a night cruise. It was late and we had the place to ourselves. The food was excellent! We both had the philly sandwiches with cheese wiz. You should try it! The service was excellent also. Fast & friendly.

The food & the service I have to give a 10, except for opening late, there's nothing I can complain about.. My fiance and I were there in st. Augustine for a day trip, we look at the reviews on TripAdvisor and talk to the locals and everyone recommended it for great sandwiches and the friendly atmosphere.. If you like... More

Thought we would have a taste of home while touring. This place fit the bill totally. After being spoiled for cheese steaks at their birthplace, this was a notable copy of the original! I understand that they actually have the bread delivered from Philadelphia. The meal was enjoyable and promptly served. The premises was somewhat on the darker side and... More

Fast, friendly and delicious. Loaded french fries, Philly Steak, and Italian sausage sub ( a bit spicy), all were yummy.

We've been coming here more often because we signed up for their specials via text. Tonight we both chose the cheesesteak with cheese whiz. It was fresh and hot with lots of flavor and the bread was warm and crispy in the best way you could imagine! I wish I had taken a photo, but it was gone before you... More

The South A Philly is located in Old Town on King Street in a corner building. The atmosphere is casual, however, it is clean and inviting. Several tap beers were recently added to the bottled beer, soft drinks and energy drinks already available. The current owner created their excellent cheese steak recipe and purchased the business from the first owner.... More

Being from Philly I can honestly say the cheesesteaks we had were perfect and authentic Philly style. Right amount of meat, fresh Jersey rolls, food was cooked fast and we ate at a clean, comfortable table. I would definitely recommend this place!!

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.
