Went here and had their garlic cheesesteak sandwich with their waffle fries and also ordered their breaded mushrooms and cheese sticks and every single thing was so delicious and at a great price! Would definitely be back!

We were going for sushi but it was closed so ventured here as a result. Glad we did. Cold beer and amazing cheese steaks and more to accompany the great staff who are busy ensuring everyone is happy. Definitely visit again.

Good food and quick service. The Philly cheesesteak had a lot of steak on it! The waffle fries were good, I just needed to add more salt to them. Overall, a great meal!

Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful
backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to
the Marina. Originally the location for the
Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose
remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much
of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a
world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a
jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city.

Jake's Steaks was started by a Philly native who has a goal to provide the best tasting cheesesteaks in or out of Philadelphia . It is a good sign when half the people at Jake's Steaks joint are from Philly. For the unenlightened, a cheesesteak consists of a heap of shredded beef and onion, tossed on a griddle, piled onto a uniquely chewy but tender Amoroso roll imported from Philadelphia and topped with Cheese Whiz, which melts into the sandwich. Jake's is tucked away on a residential block, but that doesn't stop local from popping in for a beer at the eight-seat bar or grabbing a table in the small but bright space, complete with a wallpapered photo of Philly's boathouse row on the Schuylkill River. Great place to watch the Eagles, Phillies, Flyers, 76ers, and Nittany Lions
