We were driving north on 81 and were looking for somewhere to stop for lunch other than traditional fast food. Saw this spot and took a chance. Had fabulous chicken cheese steak sandwiches. Been there since 1978. Clearly a spot that locals know and love.

i am from Philadelphia, so when I saw the name I just HAD to try them. Not completely philly style but they were still delish. There was quite a wait for them since the place was busy.
