Description: Thunderbird is family owned and operated since 1956. We serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner in a friendly environment with a hometown feel. Known for our cheese steaks, said to be the best around. Plenty of other good food options from salad to stromboli. If your passing through town stop in. Thank you.

Not romantic or very modern but the greatest ambiance for cheezesteaks, hoagies, pizza. Great place to talk with friends or family Same family for over 50 years. French Fries the best when crispy. Will match any of the other Phila steak places and even the White House in Atlantic City. Another favorite is Coke with choch syrup.

Open since 1956, I first went to the Thunderbird in 1966 while in high school. They made a superb cheese steak and a better Italian hoagie. A 45 year high school reunion found me near Broomall and we stopped and had a cheese steak and a black and white milk shake. Little has changed and the food is superb. Went back next day and had Italian hoagies. No need to venture into Philly to get the real thing, the "wit or wit out" is in suburban Delaware County on West Chester Pike. This place gets 10 stars!

Tradition still in place with old fashioned atmosphere, the old school service and nostolgic decor. Don't miss this local treasure.

My husband grew up in Broomall and so upon our visit to Philadelphia, we HAD to have cheesesteak & hoagie sandwiches at the Thunderbird. To be honest, we've eaten them for three days straight now and I'm feeling as though I need to eat a salad, but I've got to say … these things are heavenly. Good thing we are leaving tomorrow … or else my waist would disappear! Try them for yourselves … the restaurant is nothing to write home about but it's the most amazing food (and the staff is very friendly)!

This place has been around for years and delivers a very good and consistent quality sandwich. Good stop for quick lunch
