This fast food restaurant is in the Bourse building close to Independence Hall. The beef tasted so low fat, it seemed to be boiled. The cheesesteak was expensive at $10 and that was the price for the beef alone. If you wanted onions or mushrooms...More

I wanted to have a great phily since we were in Philadelphia, but it was a bit of a disappointment, it was not bad but it wasn't great. I've had better in other restaurants in other states. It was overpriced for the quality of food.
