Sat at the counter and within 5 minutes became part of several friendly conversations with the other patrons and staff. Cheese steak was the best I've had. There should be a religion devoted to the red pepper relish. So good! Don't be discouraged by the...More

Get past the locale and shop being dated! The food is the holy grail here, and you will leave very satisfied. The buns/rolls for the sandwiches are a treat unto themselves, but when you add your filing SHAZAM! Great service too!
