Went on a Wednesday lunchtime in late September, only to find a sign on the door saying they would be closed until Friday. So went back on Friday, and the place was jumping. Got the basic cheese steak with onions, and it's a revelation. Very meaty, very cheesy, very delicious! Got to go to Philly Steak Subs every time we're... More

This place is the BEST. Every year when we go to Outer Banks we eat here everyday at least once a day (that includes everyone in the house) Super friendly, excellent food, and my Husband loves the Eagles decor....somethings can be overlooked :) I would recommend this place a million times!!! Great job!

Definitely a pub atmosphere but family friendly. The menu of Philly style subs is outstanding. Also a couple of craft beers that look as though only found here. All in all very, very pleased. Varied menu should satisfy anyone

This was a pleasant stop on our vacation in The Outer Banks, the restaurant was clean, everybody was nice, and the food was good. I paid $5.99 for a cheesteak with onions, and it was very tasty. My wife had a cheesesteak, and loved hers as well. Our daughters chicken fingers were great too! We would definitely visit again if... More

We've made this an annual stop for the past 13 years. Best Philly cheesesteaks outside of Philly. The large order of fries is more than enough for our group of 5.

This is a Philly joint. It tastes like the steak was made by people in Philly, which it was. Menu is ample with lots of variations on a Philly Cheese Steak. Not wholly new creations, but I am not looking for a Bacon Maple Cilantro Guac Steak, either. Prices are fair, and one could pay more for less here at... More

Sandwich was good but it took them over 45 minutes to cook two subs and 12 wings. Granted we called ahead and were aware of the time it just doesn't sit well that it took 45 minutes. When I went to pick it up the restaurant was half empty so I am assuming they don't have enough staff. Meat was... More

Sandwich was big but the meat didn't taste very good. I can't believe I waited almost a half hour for just one sandwich and it didn't wow me like other Philly cheese steaks I've had in Corolla and Phillys are supposed to be their specialty. Was not impressed.

Thank Philip P

Best cheesesteak on the beach! Family owned, family run business with a family-friendly environment! We have something for the entire group- cheesesteaks, subs, burgers, hot dogs, chicken fingers, and more. Don't forget to try a drink from the bar, or one (or two or three...) of the thirteen craft beers on tap! Thank you for a great first season! We had a great time and can't wait to see everyone next summer, see you in April!
