I was an out of towner taken here by a long time high end Philadelphia foodie. I had recommendations for Jim’s (not Geno, who makes you order in English--not very accommodating to much of the world--and Pat’s, both of which seem like tourist traps). He...More

This is the best Philly cheesesteak and iPad in Philadelphia – and I’ve had several. Even better than Pat’s and Gino’s.The bread doesn’t get soggy in the bun.

Cheesesteak trio sandwich (with mushrooms and peppers), a bottle of water and a cherry coke cost us $12. One sandwich was enough to share between two hungry eaters. My husband has tried Pat's cheesesteak sandwich too but maintains that Cosmi's is much better: more generously...More

Love their steaks, but really love the hoagies. Plenty of meat and cheese and the rolls are always fresh. I always go there when in South philly

Looking for the top rated cheesesteak to take a friend from Spain to sample her first. We'd had all other famous Philly steaks (Pat's, Jim's, etc.). Glad we discovered Cosmi's! It is now our favorite!

Right at the corner between Dickinson and 8th street. Their burgers are amazing, cheesesteak is super! Way better than Geno's and Pat's. The owner and staff are very friendly. My favorite is their Smokehouse burger. It looks like a convenience store from the outside. They...More

This place is a wonderful anachronism. You step inside, suddenly you're in one of those places that no longer exist. Nothing fancy here, in fact when we saw the store facade we almost turned around!. But do go in, cheesesteaks are really good, staff is...More
