I love cheesesteaks.... I've been known to travel an hour or two in order to satisfy my cravings, so I was happy to learn that there was a place close to home that actually prides itself on serving Philly Cheesesteaks. When you walk into the place the first thing you'll notice is it's small. The two times that I've been... More

Outstanding sandwiches, subs, hoagies...whatever you choose to call these delicious meals on a perfectly textured roll, you'll be so happy you gave it a try. The Philly cheesesteaks are just like the originals. This place never disappoints!

Good food. Service a bit slow but worth the wait. Can take out, eat outside or limited dining inside. Good variety of sandwiches. Speciality soft drinks in bottles are offered. Prices are fair for what you get. Food is prepared fresh, so no sitting under lights. I'm a local, so I go often. Authentic Philly cheesesteak right in a beaver... More

Out of all of the places to eat at in Beaver and the adjoining towns, I probably wouldn't pick Philly Originals first. They have a decent (at best) sandwich. The meat has been flavorless, had gristle in it, and charred, most of the times that I have gotten the sandwich; I never try something just once and judge off of... More

Philly's started out in Beaver as a little hole-in-the-wall, but as their reputation grew, they found a new spot on the downtown strip, and spruced up the dining area. The food remains incredibly good - my favorite is their Pizza Steak sub. Mitch can be a little abrasive to those that don't know him, but the food knocks it out... More

I always go to lunch at Philly Orginal. It reminds me of home. Best Philly cheesteak this side of Western Pa.

Great Cheese steak, you can even get it with Whiz! If you've never been to South Philly and haven't experienced Geno's or Pat's, then you probably can't fully appreciate the atmosphere. Best cheese steak in Western PA, hands down! I enjoy going to pick up my own sandwich behind the counter, and being told to " pay when ya done".

My wife and I were pleased to eat at Philly Originals. Together, we have both a cold and hot vegetarian sub sandwich. They were two of the best subs we have ever enjoyed. We learned from chatting with an employee that the owner is very picky about making sure that they use only good and fresh ingredients. We certainly recommend.

My husband and I live this place! The cheese steaks are awesome. They will give you terrible gas, but it's so worth it!

In town to visit friends and one wanted a philly sandwich. Waited a ridiculous amount of time to be served (only one employee, not very intelligent choice of the owner.) Almost left but waited another 20 minutes or so, finally got our meal, we were so hungry we ate some of it but it was tasteless, bread was hard and... More
