Getting a genuine philly cheesesteak in the midwest can be very difficult. Anytime I am in eastern Pennsylvania, I try to find a location where I can find the real thing. This was a pretty good sandwich. The staff was friendly, but oddly enough the customers we met were even nicer.

Cosmos Cheeseteaks are a must-have if you find yourself in, or passing through, Scranton, PA. Steaks, rolls, and all the fixins (onions, peppers, wit or witout wiz or your choice of cheese.) Easy access off I-81, PA 307 exit. It's our regular stop before a RailRiders game. JUST DO IT.

Coming back from va we had to stop for food, my wife found this on our GPS found out we could order on line was the best decision ever. We make it a point to stop and eat whenever we go through pa to go on a family vacation

A trip to a Scranton/Wilkes Barre Railriders game ended with a trip to Cosmo's. Excellent service and decent enough prices. I ordered the volcano chicken cheesesteak,which surprisingly wasn't available with beef. Still excellent and try the volcano fries too/ Visiting Scranton? What? The Electric City (Sorry The Office fan here)-Stop and try Cosmo's for a great steak and fries combo.....

Without a doubt, Cosmo make the best cheesesteak outside Philly. True story... To learn how to make a Pats and Gino's cheesesteak, Cosmo was caught digging through the dumpsters in Philly, trying to learn their secrets. He was caught, but Pat himself invited him in and taught him everything. Now, Cosmo has the special buns shipped in from Philly and... More

My family have only eaten here once.I placed an order for take out. I bought 2 orders of chicken tenders/ fries and cheesesteak sandwich. The cheese-steak was ok but one order of the chicken tenders was so burnt! and overcooked. I had checked the bag before I left and brought the burnt chicken to the attention of the cashier, they...

This was my first trip to Cosmo's, and it won't be my last. The fries are awesome. You can't stop eating them. My husband is not a fan of fries, and even he loves them. The cheesesteaks are also very good and extremely filling. The food was served quickly and the restaurant was clean. Wear your stretchy pants when you... More

Super friendly staff. Their cheesesteak was delicious and both the cheese fries and volcano fries were awesome! I ordered online from the highway and our order was ready when we arrived. I'm happy we ignored the negative reviews.
