Hands down, one of the best places we've visited so far! Delicious food and almost no wait! Only downside, there really aren't many seats inside, so we took our food to go. Will definitely go back!

Normally, I look at restaurants for 3 things: 1) Quality of food, 2) Level of Service, and 3) Ambiance/cleanliness. The food we had was good. Ordered several cheesesteaks, as well as a grilled veggie hoagie, and their special cheesesteak w/ spinach cooked in. No complaints...More

Yet another stop in my continued steak due diligence.  Cheesesteaks are not their forte here despite the funny name.  Some of their other sandwiches looked like they might be decent, but I'm not going to bother coming back to find out.

This place was recommended by a local when I asked about the best place to get a "real" Philly cheese steak. It is a tiny hole in the wall place with little seating, but we were fortunate to be there when it wasn't crowded. I...More

All my uber and cab drivers told me to go eat there. Apparently it's where all the locals go. Very small place but the best Philly steak in Philly. In my opinion it crushes Geno's and Pat's which pretty much a travel channel tourist trap.

The chicken cheese steak here is amazing! So much flavor! The staff chatted with us while we were waiting for food to be made and were so nice! We had just tried a place a few blocks away that someone recommended and thought it was...More
