Got cheese steaks to go. Very quick service and friendly. Cheese steaks were really good, tender meat.

I have ordered from here many times and never disappointed, better to call your order in unless you are eating there, takes a while for your order otherwise, but great food

We stopped in here to try the sandwiches. The staff didn't have coffee. Made some. It was terrible. Decor is dismal. The bread was soft, cottony store bread.

Finally made it to here for lunch about a month ago. Now Ive been there twice and love it. The steak Ivo is my favorite. Good portion of steak, could use more of the extras they put on it though always ask for extra. Great combination of American and cheese whiz. Sandwich and a soda costs you about $11.00 on... More

Really delicious, high quality ingredients that you don't necessarily expect from a steak and cheese place. Nice variety of sandwiches, and nice to see an involved Norwich business owner!

Bigger menu then expected. There is over 8 ways to get a sandwich and then you get get then on top of fries as well, I had the Bully on fries- with the extra meat and peppers, cheese.

I guess I wasn't expecting much. Its located in what used to be a local dive in a dicey neighborhood. However its pretty good. Sandwiches come in one size - bigger than a small but certainly not a large. A little pricey I think but it was tasty.

Love it. By far the best cheesesteaks in Connecticut and possibly within a 100mi radius or more. Truly a great product. The area may look sketchy but it is perfectly safe during the daylight and fine at night as well. Not much going on back there.
