So many good cheesesteaks in the area, but none can compare to the Mama's cheesesteak. Mozzarella cheese just smothered and mixed into the whole sandwich so every bite is Nirvana! T
They now offer a smaller size for the health conscious.

The ABSOLUTE BEST cheesesteak there is.
I am a Philly native and have had many cheesesteaks from many different places. After trying one from Mama's, I can't even fathom having another from anywhere else.
The steak is tender and moist and they roll the cheese in with the steak instead of putting it on top like most places normally do.
Not only is it delicious, it's also huge and can easily be shared by 2 - 3 people.
If you are visiting Philly, and want to try a true Philly cheesesteak, this is the place to get one.
Stay away from Pat's, Geno's, Jim's - tourist traps that serve sorry excuses for cheesesteaks.
After trying a Mama's, you'll be too spoiled to eat a cheesesteak anywhere else

As a native of Philadelphia and a lifelong resident, I have had them all and Mama's is far and away the best cheesesteak in town ( which makes it the best in the world, since real cheesesteaks can't be found anywhere else). They have an abundance of meat, and it is top quality meat. Most places use cheap meat which is ok, but when a place uses better meat, you can tell. This sandwich is huge and can be to ok much so the mini was a great addition. I can't say enough about how great the steaks are here but all the sandwiches are terrific. I have never tried the pizza because Mama's is all about sandwiches for this reviewer.

If you want a cheesesteak, this is definitely the place to go! Go hungry, leave stuffed!! Each sandwich is packed with thinly sliced meat and loaded with cheese. Worth the splurge, cause they are also filled with calories!

Lunch time and I am driving out of Phila towards the suburbs and I remember that Mama's is right off route 1. I had an original cheesesteak with fried onions, mushrooms and sauce and it was great! One problem is if you must go back to work afterwards motivation will not be high because you are so full.
