High school and middle school Boys for that matter love this place. My kids have had it for their birthdays, they call it in and pick it up. I get it for them all the time as a "treat". Would not dine in ..it's kind of ..dirty. But sandwiches hot and good. I actually ordered chicken and cheese only last... More

I was told by a friend that these were good sandwiches so we tried it and were surprised! Normally I wouldn’t have tried it but was glad I did. The sandwich was very fresh and the pepper/onion topping with just the right amount of spice and flavor. It’s a good fast food spot!

Lovely greasy sandwiches that are filled with beef, provolone cheese, onions, and peppers. There is no fast food that can compare with these sandwiches. French fries maybe yes, but you don't need fries with the Cheese Steak! Really great value compared to fast food or fine dining, plus you build credits towards future sandwiches. A feature I am using to... More

Its not like being in Philly, but its not a bad cheesesteak and its certainly better than the nearby alternatives of McDonalds, Jack in the Box or Taco Bell.

They have very good cheese steaks for the West Coast. But I originated in Philadelphia so I am spoiled by those and pizzas there, New York City, and New Jersey. Their hoagies are probably good but don't expect New Jersey ones. You can't find those anywhere but Jersey (tomatoes and other ingredients so excellent there don't ship well).

If you want a really good Philly style cheese steak and do not care about the atmosphere, this place is great. The style is 1960's hand-the-food over the counter and a rather worn out setting. But -- the food really is great! Service is fast, value is good. Get your own drinks (all you can drink) from the fountain. This... More

Had a great cheese steak sandwich. Resteraunt offers several variations & toppings! Fries were good as well. Definately will return. Atmosphere typical of fast food, but comfortable & clean! Great service! Amiable.
