My wife is from New Jersey and when she feels a bit homesick we head over to Philly Bilmo's to cheer her up. The Cheese Steak Sandwiches are superb and the Eggplant Parmesan sandwich is delish. They used to make Eggplant Rollatini that was to die for and the same sauce is in the sandwich. Friendly staff are always helpful... More

A friend of mine took me to Philly Bilmos - he said it was the best place for a real Philly cheesesteak... So I thought, "yeah, whatever, I'll humor him" and have to say he was right. Everything is fresh made in front of you, with top quality ingredients. I have personally gotten several people hooked on the place. A... More

Small place, simple menu, good sandwiches. Much more meat than chain places, huge piles of fries, good stuff!

Great food, can be quite busy, and take a bit of Time but worth the wait. A bit speedy but worth it! Food is always consistent in taste. Well worth the trip.

I absolutely love this place. Whenever I'm in Portland or Vancouver area for work I go there at least once. Usually twice. I've never gotten anything other then the cheesesteak and fries. It's made fresh and HOT and so cheesy and delicious. The bread is crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. I can't wait to get back... More

Love this place. Great Philly cheesesteaks made to order. Nothing old sitting around. Fresh and tasty. Better go hungry as the sandwiches are big. Wish they still sold Tastycakes! Miss those from Philly.

I stopped in at lunch for a cheesesteak and found they were having a special. For only a few dollars more I could have fries and a fountain drink. I was told the fountain drinks didn't work, and I could choose any option from the cooler. I ended up with a bottle of birch beer..a regional favorite of mine from... More

I eat lunch there every Monday and the sandwiches are great. They are full of meat and not huge loaves of bread with a wisp of sandwich meats. The service is excellent and the fries are very good. I believe this place has the best subs west of he Mississippi, at least of all the places I've tried.

They have the best pork sandwich. Its unique with the spicy mustard. The Philly sandwiches are also good but the roasted pork is my favorite.
