very good cheese steak. was there with family who had been there many times. i definitely recommend it. good quality of meat, just the right amount of fried onions and cheese.
a very good roll: thats what makes any cheese steak or hoagie. too bad its not closer to my home.

We have tried many cheese steaks in Philly and no one beats this place. The bread, meat, provolone cheese (they have other cheeses but that's my favorite) and the grilled onions all taste so great that you won't want to stop eating. They also serve pickles and peppers upon request. I like the banana peppers on my sandwich as well. This place is worth the trip!

If you are a fan of Philly food which you can only get for real in Philly then give Chinks on Torresdale a try. It's in a classic old storefront with soda fountain lunch counter. The cheesesteak is very good because the rolls are good and they cook the sandwiches in the storefront window on an iron grille. Give it a try....

Whether you live in Philadelphia or are just visiting, if you haven't had a Steak/Cheesesteak Sandwich from this place, you are missing a little bit of heaven! It is a must! It also is a blast from the past....fountain sodas (vanilla coke my favorite)...the best milkshake I have had in many years...egg creams (when is the last time you had an egg cream???!!)... banana splits...I LOVE THIS PLACE!

The restaurant has a 50's theme and each booth has a working juke box. I ordered a cheesesteak with cheez whiz and it was really good. I also got a strawberry soda that was good. Prices were reasonable and service was prompt and friendly. I will go there again.
