They are a little dive that serves the best philly in the valley, quick and fresh- Try the fried mushrooms, they are hand dipped not frozen and off the charts good.

This is a great place for a philly cheese steak. Great sandwiches. Place may not be well kept, but I go for the food and it's very popular.

When I visit my In-Laws in Sandy, Utah. The trip is not complete without a stop at the Phily. In fact it has become a family tradition to get me my 8" Hot Combo and Fries.

Terrible service. Overheard a young girl ask an employee if they had fry sauce, the employee said "we do but I'm not getting it for you". Service was also very slow, employees were not wearing their hats properly to catch hair from falling in food. Gross place.

This place is so filthy I refuse to go back (my husband really likes the sandwiches). It is absolutely gross, I don't understand how they are allowed to operate this way. The sandwiches have kind of gone downhill in the last couple of years, it seems they are not as tasty. But such a turn off to see everything covered... More

I had fond memories of this place from about 15 years ago. I was back in the area and decided to revisit. I arrived at about 11:30 am and best the crowds. The place is definitely a dive. It reminds me of being at your divorced alcoholic uncle's house. Not super clean. Horrible decor. Weird ways of doing things. A... More

The cheese steak is colossal!! Hey its a sandwich shop so don't expect fine digs when you get there only a good selection of well made and tasty sandwiches! When I went the place was packed with people lining up outside waiting their turn. You order and pay at the register than find a table or wait on the side... More

We were getting our laundry done next door and decided to get some lunch. Their food was pretty good. Definetly get your money's worth. You would never know that they have been there for 20 years, although, they do need a personality pick-me-up on their decor. I had the 4 inch pastrami sandwich and fried mushrooms. My husband had the... More

Very sub par. Meat wasn't hot after they made it, got cold way too fast. Asked for extra cheese and there was barely any cheese on it at all. Bun wasn't the greatest.
