Im not one to leave reviews but due to the (lack) of service our company received today I was not going to let this slide without a warning to others. Philly's Pizza is right around the corner from us so our company tends to order from there often. Today we ordered a Seafood Pizza because of how good it sounded... More

Stopped here with my family between the kids' sports games on a Sunday. The only nice thing I can say is that the cashier was friendly. The dining area felt and looked dirty. The chairs must be 25 years old and were built to last 5. Grimy tables. Stained ceiling tiles. What I could see if the kitchen looked even... More

My wife and I took our two grandchildren and ate in the small dining area because it was close to where we were staying. We had low expectations for our visit, and happily I can report both the food and service quality were much better than I imagined they would be. It is not fine dining by any means; it... More

I live close to the restaurant, but I can tell you without a doubt I wouldn't continue to order from them if the food wasn't good. I wouldn't go in expecting to dine like you are in Florence, but it's more than good to grab on your way home or order in some pizza if you are having people over.

We ordered delivery. The slices are huge. The cheese is very tasty. The sauce is alive with flavor. Nothing bland here. I was impressed. We don't have pizza like this at home. I loved it!!

This restaurant was recommended by the hotel for delivery and everything was excellent. The gyro was fresh and hot but the veg was still crisp. Pizza was so hot we had to let it cool before we could dig in. Super hot good is not generally eBay I expect with delivery. Definitely recommend!

During a recent stay at a local hotel we selected Philly’s Best Pizza & Subs for dinner. I had a hot roast beef dinner, my wife had a cheese steak and my son had a small pizza. The food was delicious and plentiful. The prices are not bad and they delivered our food very quickly. We were very pleased with... More

I'm an Eastern PA boy and these cheesesteaks are excellent. Perfectly toasted rolls, good toppings, very fresh, very delicious. I'll be back.

On those days when there is just too much going on, the week has been long and no one feels like cooking, try Philly's. They have something for everyone but we usually get Pizza and fries. The loaded pizza is really loaded but the pepperoni pizza is my favorite. Service is fast and prices are reasonable.

I hope their pizza is better than the Fresh Homemade Salad. I ordered the grilled shrimp salad with dressing on the side. The shrimp are minuscule and dripping in some kind of sickening sweet sauce. Needless to say I am extremely unhappy. Won't be using this place again!
