Bought two of "the works" cheesesteaks -- the cashier repeated my request for no hot peppers, so he knew about the request. When I got home, both cheesesteaks were extremely spicy and burned my mouth badly. There were no hot peppers that I could see. It was the meat that was so spicy. They also had banana peppers (which aren't... More

Small menu, need a Philly cheesesteak fix, this is the place. They also deliver, the bread is so fresh and you can individualize your sandwich however you like!

The Philly cheesesteaks here are the most authentic ones around. You can't get a more authentic cheesesteak unless you drive up to Philly. We consider this place one of the best hidden gems in Bethesda and can't figure out why it isn't more packed every time we visit. The food is fresh, it tastes great, and they have a lot... More

Great cheese steaks at a great price. South Street is great for take out or delivery when you just want a simple meal that will fill you up. They are open late on the weekends which is great too!

Arriving late one evening, I ordered online and had a cheese-steak, Hot dog, fries and a drink delivered. It said online that it would take an hour to arrive, but it arrived in about 30 minutes. Food was still warm-hot: Sandwich and hot dog were hot (wrapped in foil)...fries (in a paper sleeve) not so much. Food was tasted great... More

Small hole in the wall place decorated with photographic murals of Philly. Eat in or carry out. Not just the murals will remind you of Philly, the rolls come from Amorosos' Bakery and the sandwiches are well constructed with generous portions and fresh ingredients. Reasonable prices.

Yes; that's what you'll ask yourself when you visit South Street Steaks in Bethesda. Are they as good as Geno's...Pats? Maybe, but there isn't the local color of visiting these two venerable establishments. For that, you'll need to make the trek to Philly. But if you want a REAL Philly cheese steak experience without the three-hour drive, try South Street... More

Great place with plenty of seating. The French fries are some of the best I have ever had. Thick and crispy. The cheesesteak was big and the meat was flavorful. The amount of steak they put on is quite large. Could use just a bit more onion and cheese whiz, but overall a great sub. Definitely recommend if you are... More

My kids and I love this place. Great cheesesteaks! I always get the Chicken Steak with the Works, and my son gets the plain cheesesteak, nothing on it except Cheese Wiz. The fries are great too. The only problem is that if I get a foot long, I always eat the entire thing in one sitting even though it is... More

Maybe the only cheesesteaks in Bethesda. The place is about as close to 'fast food' as you can get for Bethesda, but it is greasy and delicious. Their cheezwhiz is delicious and everything is very tasty and very filling. The fries are amazing and plentiful! This place is great for a solid, satisfying meal.
