Count me among those who laugh when various renditions of cheesesteaks are marketed across the land as "Philly's". If one has been fortunate enough to reside in the Philadelphia environs at one time or another and taste a genuine cheesesteak, one accepts no substitutes. Admittedly...More

I have never had a bad thing or a bad experience here. Everything is always fresh, handmade and delicious. The portions sizes are awesome and honestly, I think they may have the best Philly cheesesteak around. The hoagies are excellent and a must have on...More

I've been going to Costa's for years and I feel that it has been getting more professional with the years. Professional in a good way... more consistent good service, improved decor, and nice food to buy from the shelves. It has always had good milk...More

Sure, they serve many other things. But when my son -- who has been out-of-town for a decade -- comes to visit us, then Costa's is the one place we go to give him his Cheesesteak fix. There is nothing better!

Whether you want picnic foods, authentic Italian items, or an old-fashioned milkshake at the retro counter, Costa's is exactly what you're looking for. They also have delicious (and very reasonable) breakfast sandwiches, Italian...More

We pulled off the highway on the way to the airport, hoping to find a great hoagie shop before we left Philly. Bingo, Costa Deli was it. Owner and his family were welcolming and I was excited to see the tripadvisor logo on the door....More

A family run business that looks like a 60's dinner. Mostly take-out but there are booths and a counter with chairs. Excellent milk shakes- made with real ice cream. Good steak sandwiches and hoagies. Friendly staff

Great food and knowledgeable owner. I'm Italian and I like that he carries specialty foods for Italians. His rolls are very good and anyone from Philly area knows it is all about the roll.
