Great food great service. We ended up here by mistake. We were going to delassandros across the street they had no restrooms. So we ventured across the street instead. We are glad we did. Cheese Steaks were great fries and onion rings were crisp and...More

This is where you want to go if you want to experience a local cheesesteak shop. It’s very small inside so don’t expect always get a Seat and the parking lot can only accommodate about nine cars. They have some of the best cheese fries...More

I wanted a cheesesteak, so I headed here. Full disclosure, I really came here because they take credit cards. I've been here before to get just fries and onion rings (both quite delicious), but I stopped in yesterday for a cheese steak. Mushroom, whiz, with...More
