I got carry away and can only speak to the food itself and not the service and atmosphere. The cheesesteaks were great and on par with Philly's. Though I personally, think the large amount of meat is a negative for the meat and cheese to...More

Want a great Philly cheese steak, this is your place. In a hurry, don't frustrate yourself. Don't get me wrong, the staff was very friendly just slow. We seemed to have 2 or 3 different waitresses, and I think it caused some confusion. The food...More

There is a huge selection of sandwiches, but the signature sandwich is the cheesesteak sub. It's humungous! It's so big that there's no way you can eat it all without a fork. Add the homemade chips and you have a sandwich fit for a king....More
