This place is like a mini sports bar, without the bar part. They do sell beer in the fridge though. My spouse always gets the cheesesteak sandwich. It's always good, filling and hearty. I get something different every time and it's always good as well....More

Prices were high, restaurant was not super clean, and nor much for Kids to eat. Sandwiches were good tasting but not a great or even good value. Nice place to cool off on a hot day, but nothing special about this spot.

My wife, son and I came here for a late lunch earlier this week. My wife and I both had traditional Philly cheesesteaks, while our son just had a cheese sandwich. The cheesesteaks were pretty good, but they didn't blow us away. We also got...More

Garbage not food. No flavor. Weak veg. Tasteless meat. Boring from my mouth to down south. Worst food I've had in st Augustine. Avoid avoid avoid. Potato skins covered in bacos. Gross. Have some pride in your menu. You should be ashamed and close down...More

I grew up in South Jersey and lived in Philly for numerous years while attending college and afterwards. This place had excellent food! The guy at the counter was great, but I didn't catch his name. He was very polite and the food came out...More

Our sandwiches had a nice quantity of somewhat gristly meat, but honestly were nothing special. The guy taking orders did not particularly seem to want to be there. Not rude, just very dry. Also, only 1 free refill given. Being aware enough of how little...More

Philly was good, they put a lot of meat and cheese on them which is what I like. The jalapeño poppers were really good too. Nice little place and clean. Would return.

This place makes decent philly subs, but not worth what they charge. Went twice and will never be back. Nothing amazing about this place to bring me back.

We stopped in to South-A-Philly to get some real cheese steaks; their menu looked awesome and they were right by our hotel. Despite it being almost empty, it took over 10 minutes to get two cheese steaks. I guess they were understaffed, but even so...More

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.
