I visit Philadelphia several times a year and always make a stop at Fairmount Pizza. My daughter lives in the neighborhood and we enjoy walking to the restaurant and ordering for takeaway. Never mind the hype of Pat's or Gino's, I like the cheesesteaks at Fairmount best. I've recently been ordering their pizzas and find them to be great, too.... More

The place was a lot better a few years ago if you grew up in the neighborhood u understand over the years the price goes up and the food is no longer great or even good

Very impressed with the selection, speed and quality. The only downfall is that if you eat there, many seats/tables are in need of repair or are very dirty.

We got two slices to take out. The place was very crowded on a Sunday afternoon so we figured it must be good. The line was long, but we got our pizza within minutes of ordering. The plain pizza was cheesy and tasty!

This pizzeria offers higher quality food than at most pizza shops and at very fair prices. The menu is very lengthy, so hopefully you're not an indecisive type as it may take some time for you to pick something. Highly recommended.

This is a popular spot for a good reason, the food is good and the prices are modest. It's not fine dinning, and no beer or wine is available, but the food is good and the service is reasonably fast.

Quite closely located to the Easter State Penitentiary, far from downtown, but perhaps a good place to dine when you're on the way to visit the Penitentiary. Seems to be really busy at all times, many locals come here; but the service was fast. We tried pizzas, burgers and cheesestakes. All food was tasty and plenty.

What a hole in the wall find this place was, but awesome food! The Cheesesteak was the best we had while in the Philly area and they had really good pizza as well. Right down the road from the Eastern State Penitentiary. Highly recommend stopping by and grabbing a quick bite to eat.

Lunch stop of convenience en route to Eastern State Penetentiary, turned out to be a good find - really busy local kind of place, first Philly cheesesteak was really good. Pizza seemed to be the popular choice, but we both enjoyed our sandwiches - fresh bun, fast and tasty.
