Great sandwich shop. Gotta try the philly, best i've ever tasted. The staff was very friendly and are definitely trying to make you a great meal at a fast pace. The inside of the place is clean and nicely done.

We have south of philly at least once a week. As always the staff is friendly and accommodating. A secret: ask for cheese sauce for dipping fries!

They say they get their bread shipped in from Philly but I don't believe them, unless they get it shipped from Acme. But they have the rest right.

South of Philly offers the authentic cheese steak experience. With fresh sliced ribeye and imported Amoroso's rolls from Philly...that's just the beginning. We use fresh produce from our local farmer's market and every sandwich is cooked to order. We hand punch our fries using Idaho potatoes and fry them to perfection in cholesterol free peanut oil. We offer delivery, dine in and drive thru services.
