Forget what you know watched or heard about philly cheese steaks. Go to gooey's first. To find them is to go inside a compound on the corner of 2nd and moore. Look for the "mall" then its on your left near the middle of compound. If you're lucky you can see movie stars or Catch babe hefron in the mornings. (Band of brothers) hes there daily. See the pics.

“A sandwich you need help to finish”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2012

If you are looking for a sandwich that is overflowing with meat this is the place to go. They put an unbelievable larges amount of meat on ALL their sandwiches. Their steak sandwiches are EXCELLENT. The meat is tender and very flavorful. Their hoagies are the same way, They are packed with soooooo much meat that you can make several sandwiches from the one. If you are not familiar with the location it may be hard to find since it is located in a courtyard. Well worth the trip.

“Great service, great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012 via mobile

First off,I'm a Colorado guy and can't really speak to the comparative quality of the cheesesteak I ordered. I can just say it was delicious, one of the best sandwiches I've ever eaten. My wife ordered a turkey sandwich that was fantastic as well.
The real greatness of Gooey Looies was in the service. They recognized that we were out-of-towners and offered my kids water ice. Never had it before, but it was so good we ordered some for everyone. They also gave us a pretzel which, apparently is delicious with water ice.
The sandwiches, drinks, water ice, and freebies all totalled around $20. What a deal.
The one downside was finding the place. My directions but the location on McClellan st. Do not turn on this street, which is just an alley next to the building where the restaurant is.
Overall, next time in Philly, I will seek out this joint.
