We don't eat meat often, nor bread. When we do, we come here - for hot and wonderful cheesesteak on a soft bun. There are other items on their menu; we always choose some kind of cheesesteak. Never been disappointed.

Went with my son for lunch and had the Chicken Philly sandwich which was awesome! Sat at the bar and bartender was great. She was very attentive and made sure we got everything we needed. Restaurant was clean and had a very comfortable environment.

We know a good Philly cheese steak, having come from that area. We liked the ones here. Rolls were fresh, meat was good, cheese just right. Service was fast.
