Really good snack. A little high priced for a snack but it is in the mall so its to be expected. Pretty much all the items are good.

Cheese steak was the best in the valley but the employees were kind of "clicky" greeting their friends with joy but not overly friendly to out-of-towners

More of a bar than a sub shop but a decent cheesesteak. Good roll. There's nothing like a cheesesteak from Philadelphis but this was good.

A very nice laid back place to hang out, have a beer and a sandwich. I was there on a Friday nigh and they were setting up a DJ or bang, so it may get loud in there later in the evening.

the atmosphere is kind of like a small "dive" sports bar. The Brownsville sandwich is great with white cheese! It's packed with avocado, grilled onions, and jalapenos. Great selection of beers, but no full bar.

The food is OK. It's not good. It's not bad. It's OK. Service is not good. You've got Brownsville guys who have probably never been 50 miles from home going out of their way to convince you they're from Philadelphia. What a crock. The owner...More

Great place to satisfy great hunger. Only restaurant that makes a philly cheesesteak the real way, w/cheese whizz. And for that I give phillys Americana the awesome award. Also try the sweetpotato fries, they are something different and delicious. Great place for great hunger
