One of the best cheese-steaks I have while I was in Philly... The flavor is delicious and the quality of service is divine.

This is a dive place, but they have delicious steak and cheese. It is right down the street from Jim's with no line. The only disappointment was that the tables were all dirty when we sat. There is a coupon on their website.

Ate here on the first day visit to Philadelphia. The sandwich was so good I ordered a second and could not finish it. Be aware that tour busses will deliver 100 people at once so be prepared for a rush.
