They say they get their bread shipped in from Philly but I don't believe them, unless they get it shipped from Acme. But they have the rest right.

I eat out almost every meal so I expect good food when I sit down. I would really expect for just over $15 for a combo this would be one good sandwich boy was I surprised. The fries were cold and greasy. The cheese steak was just average very bland. Maybe someone was just complacent about what they were doing... More

What a great find in Baton Rouge. These cheese steak sandwiches were just like the ones you would get in Philadelphia. The steak was tremendous along with the cheese and onions. They were served on a fresh soft roll. My only negative was the building which needs a little up dating. Don't miss this place.

Great cheesesteak!!! I always get mine with pepperjack cheese and grill onions. The fries were hot and crunchy, just the way I like them. I visit this location at least once a week, just delicious! There is a wide variety on the menu, and I have listened to people from Philadelphia say it tastes like they are home. Do not... More

My son lives in Baton Rouge. On our recent visit we ordered cheesesteaks from here for the Eagles game. They were delicious. I haven't lived in Philly for 7 years and this is the best cheesesteak I have had since moving. OMG I think I liked the chicken cheesesteak the best. I never eat an entire cheesesteak but this one...

First visit and liked it. First Philly cheese steak even though I have been in Philly a bunch of times. Not a real fan of the bread, prefer real french bread, but then I suppose it would not have been a Phiily cheese steak with french bread, but one can hope. The fries were the best I have had in...

So, after a long time looking for a decent Philly cheesesteak in Baton Rouge, a coworker recommended I go to South of Philly for my fix. Right off the get, their menu offers a variety of different cheesesteaks. I decided to go with the classic cheesesteak. I must say, it is the best cheesesteak I have had here in BR.... More

This was my very first cheesesteak ever, and I've got to say I have been missing out. This place is really delicious. I got fries with my meal and they give you a lot! We went during Lunch time and they weren't too busy. There were quite a few people there, but service was very fast. We didn't wait long... More

I love this place, I find the service girls at the counter to be rude from time to time but that's my only complaint. The food is awesome and the kids meals are cheap and yummy! I can't speak for any of the other food because I can't bring myself to not order a cheesesteak! You gotta try one.

Description
South of Philly offers the authentic cheese steak experience. With fresh sliced ribeye and imported Amoroso's rolls from Philly...that's just the beginning. We use fresh produce from our local farmer's market and every sandwich is cooked to order. We hand punch our fries using Idaho potatoes and fry them to perfection in cholesterol free peanut oil. We offer delivery, dine in and drive thru services.
