Newly discovered, delicious restaurant! If you like Chicago style food, try out this small restaurant. We enjoyed their Philly Cheesesteak and Classic Flatbread. So Good!! Friendly personnel in a clean, sports-themed environment.

Large group from out of town nearby for an event and we all decided we were famished afterwards on a Sunday afternoon. A quick Yelp search turned up Wiseguys right down the street, so we all headed over. Walk up counter service where you order...More

This place has a variety of cheesesteak options and each one I've tried has been excellent. I visit this place a couple times a month for lunch, good food and desserts. If you like spicy, "the cartel" is the way to go!

Holy Cow. This place is phenomenal! I love their Italian Beef sandwich. I am not a fan of the peppers and have tried both the bell peppers and the Italian peppers. They really pile the meat on the sandwich. If you try it, make sure...More

Had pizza and wine, and both were very good. Service was good as well, and the value was excellent. I especially loved the cozy atmosphere. Doesn't look or feel like most chain restaurants. Will definitely return.
