I have lived in Baton Rouge for a few years and I was looking for a good philly cheese steak spot. I love their chicken philly because you can get it many ways. But I also love the customer service here as well. I came in at the last minute and the young lady told me to come in and... More

Had a really good lunch. Packed at 11 so I ran a few errands AND CAME BACK. good service and great food. Staff was on their game and hustling to get orders out. Not a PHILLY aficionado by no means but really enjoyed it!

The food is great. They are pretty busy so expect to wait 15 - 20 minutes or call ahead. The only thing I have a problem with is the hours they are open are a little odd. They close at 3:30 on Saturdays but they turn off the light and lock the door right at 3 so don't expect to... More

We called in a regular cheesesteak with fried onions only, a cajun cheesesteak with fried onions only and a chicken cheesesteak with onions only, a small plain cheesesteak (meat and cheese only), and 2 orders of fries. The sandwiches were hot. They dropped the fries when our friend arrived to pick them up. They were still hot and crispy after... More

We ordered a small classic and a small chicken cheesesteak. We made one steak a combo and split the fries. The combo came with a drink so we added a second drink.... More

Good food, not great. The meat was not sliced like I expected, but that's not a bad thing. It was fresh cooked/made, and the bun was fresh and soft. I would go again but not drive across town for it.

We lived in Philly for 7 years so we are always on the look out for a good cheesesteak. Everyone claims to have a good one but very few actually do. Philly Me Up is pretty darn close to a true Philly Cheesesteak. We ordered a chicken cheesesteak and a regular cheesesteak with onions and cheese only. They were loaded... More

I always want a chicken cheesesteaks from here when I visit my son in Baton Rouge. We placed a carry out order of 5 cheesesteaks...some chicken, some steaks with variety of toppings and vegetables. The order was perfectly prepared. They even waited until I arrived to drop the fries so they would remain hot. It is always delicious.

Great cheesesteak. The chicken cheese was my fav and I lived in Philly for 8 years. Just like Philly...maybe even better. The Cajun chicken and Cajun steak were also good and meaty. You may order them with or without onion, peppers and mushrooms. All prepared to order. We loved our first order from here but they have really odd hours.... More

By far the best philly I have ever had!! Only downside... They get pretty busy at lunch time so make sure you get there a little early. Everything is made to order every time! Love it!!
