I love Thunderbird and go there often but would NEVER order a hoagie from them again. The hoagie had no meat/cheese on it. I actually got out my scale (yes, I am a great cook) and weighed the meat and cheese which came to 2 OUNCES!!!!!!!!!!!!! They lost my money. Never again

Tom G, Owner at Thunderbird Steak House, responded to this review

Marilyn, I am sorry to hear about your hoagie. I publicly apologize. I am sure there would have been a swift and satisfying solution if you called us and informed the manager when it happened. Before panning us, which is fine, let us first fix the problem. The staff should have been alerted immediately. As you are a regular customer... More

I was on my first visit to the Philadelphia area, and this was exactly the kind of cheese steak experience I was looking for. Great food, great service, and reasonable prices. Listening to staff talk about Philly sports was the icing on the cake. Loved it!

If your in the mood for a quick bite before a movie or after, go to thunderbird. They have been around for a long time and are busy but worth the wait.

I love italian hoagies, but when you pop them in the oven for a brief time, Wow! Thunderbird's grinders are a real winner!

My daughter and I were on our way to Philadelphia Airport and traffic was very heavy around 5 PM so we decided to stop for dinner instead of eating at the airport. Drove about two miles and didn't see anything that caught our attention. I opened my trip advisor app and Thunderbird Steakhouse was first on the list. We had... More

We love this place! If you blink, you'll miss it. Small place with a cozy feel inside. I found it 15 years ago, but I know it's been there longer than that. I love the cheese steaks, and fries, you can't get one any better anywhere else in the area.
