A few days ago I was in the mood for a cheesesteak so I stopped by Costa's and was not disappointed. There were other people having milkshakes and they gave them good reviews but I can't handle a cheesesteak and milkshake together anymore so that...More

Sure, they serve many other things. But when my son -- who has been out-of-town for a decade -- comes to visit us, then Costa's is the one place we go to give him his Cheesesteak fix. There is nothing better!

This is the place to go - old-fashioned friendliness and fabulous food. Whether you want picnic foods, authentic Italian items, or an old-fashioned milkshake at the retro counter, Costa's is exactly what you're looking for. They also have delicious (and very reasonable) breakfast sandwiches, Italian...More

A family run business that looks like a 60's dinner. Mostly take-out but there are booths and a counter with chairs. Excellent milk shakes- made with real ice cream. Good steak sandwiches and hoagies. Friendly staff

Great food and knowledgeable owner. I'm Italian and I like that he carries specialty foods for Italians. His rolls are very good and anyone from Philly area knows it is all about the roll.

Sandwiches here are very good. Nice selection of hoagies and hot sandwiches on fresh long rolls. Could do without the owner pushing his pastas, cakes, etc. He is very aggressive to the point it gets annoying. I would come here more frequently, but do not...More

I believe in supporting local business, on a regular basis, not in one lump sum. Steak and chicken salad sandwich, one order of fries and two milkshakes..,,$30.00. I could go into Ambler and get dinner for two on that budget. Food was good, not the...More

If you live around Ambler and haven't been to Costa's Deli, shame on you!! They have been in business for over 60 years for good reason, their steaks and hoagies are fabulous!!! The brothers Costa, sons of the original owner have continued the tradition and...More
