Description: We are a staff of friends and family who are proud to bring you the best tasting cheesesteaks and hoagies in Florida. Our bread is shipped down par-cooked from South Jersey, then baked fresh throughout the day, so you can enjoy authentic flavor straight from the oven. Each day we slice our rib-eye by hand to ensure our steak is tender and delicious; we would never dream of serving that pre-sliced stuff! We have original Cheez Whiz to give your cheesesteak that real Philadelphia flavor, the same way we ate them growing up. If that’s not your thing, we also offer American, Provolone, and Swiss cheeses, all from Dietz and Watson, who also provides all of our Italian meats (for an unforgettable Italian hoagie that will make you think you’re right back in Philly!). We have put our hearts into creating sandwiches we are proud to serve, and we hope you enjoy eating them as much as we enjoy making them.

“Great late night food!”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

We came across this place after a wedding we attended, and it was around 1am. We wanted a snack and got fried pickles and funnel cak sticks... while the two don't sound like they go together, both were delicious!

“Good cheesesteak”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

This place was good. They serve their cheesesteaks with the recommended option of fried onions and cheeze whiz, which is actually the authentic way to make a philly cheesesteak. My wife and I have had a lot of cheesesteaks in our day, and this was among the best we've had.

“Great cheesesteak”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

We stopped here on our way out of town and I'm glad we did. We got there about 11:10am so it had only been opened for about 10 mins so we were the only ones in there but it was so good. I got a regular cheesesteak with American cheese and onions and my boyfriend got the bufflao chicken hoagie with a side a curly fries for both. It was absolutely delicious. The place itself is pretty cool too. It's so long and narrow that you can really tell the age of the building. Service was great and food was even better. Definitely recommend for a good cheesesteak.

“Real Philly”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

I visited Philadelphia a few years ago and got hooked on real philly cheese steaks. South a Philly makes them the right way and we never left disappointed. I worked downtown and ate here once a week. Family owned and great food!

“a MUST when in St. Augustine”
Reviewed August 24, 2012

South A Philly is crazy yummy! The staff is so helpful and friendly. Be sure to get the cheese whiz as it is the way to go. The bread is wonderful and all the sandwiches are wonderful. The iced tea is fresh brewed and they have a couple brews on tap. They even have Drakes Cakes for sale! After a night of pub hopping, this place will hit the spot!
