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.

“Best Cheese Steaks”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

We stop at South-A-Philly each time we go to St. Augustine to have their Cheese Steak. I always get the "whiz with" and it's make the authentic way with cheese whiz and grilled onions. The steak is fresh rib-eye and the portions are very large and filling. Go with the sweet potato fries, they are great too.

The Philly cheesesteaks were awesome! Not greasy, not too salty, just perfect! The owner made you feel like a good ole friend! Thanks for the great food/service Mitch, you are the real deal! From a Jersey Girl!

“Love It, Lil Pricey Tho”
Reviewed May 27, 2013 via mobile

We Go Here Each Time We Visit St Augustine. Food Tastes Great. My Only Complaint Would Be The Pricing. For 2 Phillys, 1 Order Of Fries, And 2 Drinks It Was $27.

“If you think this is what cheese steaks are supposed to taste like, you are mistaken.”
Reviewed May 26, 2013 via mobile

We are locals and have gone to this place for years. To be honest, it used to be great. But, it is an overpriced dump now. It is pathetic the tiny bit of meat you get for $9. And the fries are a greasy disaster. It is clear business is waning and the owner is cutting corners. With so many great places to eat in St. Augustine, don't waste your time or money here.

“Great cheese steaks!”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

Wow! This place was great! The cheese steaks were awesome! I'm not an expert on cheese steaks, this was my first time ever eating them but I thought they were fantastic. We had lunch here twice on our three day trip to Saint Augustine. The staff was very friendly as well.
