Good prices and lunch specials. Their Sicilian pizza is usually great but they don't always have it pre-made for lunch. Some of their other food is "meh." They could stand to improve their customer service skills but I don't think they care.

This is a totally self serve pizza restaurant with a medium size seating area. We tried the pizza and the sauce was so bad the kids would not eat....a rare event. The same sauce was used for the chicken pizza steak and the regular steak sandwich. The meat in each sandwich was chopped up so fine it was almost pureed.... More

They catered a party with reasonable prices and TASTY wings. They are crispy coveted with unique sauce and a little heat. Pizza is good and cheese steaks are excellent. There are a few employees who can be a little short with the customers, but does not reflect on food quality. Perfect spot to bring kids for pizza party. Delivery is... More

We have lived in the area forever but it has only been about 6 mos. that Phil's has become a go-to spot for pizza and cheesesteaks. Their food is great and we have never had a problem with poor customer service/rudeness as described here. As a matter of fact, we called around 8:30 one night and Phil's was getting ready... More

Pretty solid pizza pie. Sauce is on Sweet side. They advertise that they originated at the shore and it's pretty accurate, good shore like pizza with good flavor. Read reviews--I had good service. Everyone was nice, gentleman at counter recommended upside down pie. We also got dozen hot wings, sauce is sweeter on wings too. Didn't wait too long for... More

We have regularly ordered from here, even though they are typically rude to us, because the food is decent. During the most recent order, they were not only rude while we ordered (again), but after telling us that we had to wait an hour for our order, we showed up to find out they decided not to make it. They... More

The poor attitude and disrespect of Phil for his customers has trickled down to the rest of the employees. It's a shame, because they make a pretty good pizza, but I refuse to support someone who is rude to good paying customers. There are much better pizza restaurants in the area who make great food, give you your food with... More

I used to live in S Philly. This is the closest to good pizza in the burbs that I've had. Owner Phil should be a bit more welcoming warm and fuzzy with customers :)
