I love some Phillys! The food is excellent. The service is excellent. You get what you pay for and so much more! I suggest getting a belly buster if you're real hungry and want a challenge. The lasagna is my second best thing!

If you want a huge sandwich this is the place to go. Even a small individual sandwich is too big for me. I usually order a tummy tickler that has a small Philly Cheese Steak sandwich and as my side I get the out-of-this-world baked potato salad!

Have previously reviewed Philly's but on a return trip to Charleston (the greater CLS area) we certainly had to visit again. Very good - no doubt they set the standard. We arrived early, but within 10 minutes the little restaurant had filled up. We both ordered - what else - cheesesteaks - very good and cooked perfectly - as other... More

Good food, fast service. Sit indoors or out. Enjoy a hot delicious sandwich and cold drink then go right next door to Here Be Books and Games to browse your favorites. A great location. Lots of menu items to choose from and the food is always fresh.

Well if you are from the Philly area and want a cheesesteak, this place feels like home. They make great cheesesteaks and have a great menu to choose from including other sandwiches and pasta dishes. Yummy

Without a doubt the best cheesesteaks anywhere! I have tried cheesesteaks at many places in Philadelphia but these at Philly's in Summerville are really the best! From the crowd I know the rest of their food is great too. I just can't make myself order anything else. The have a great varied menu. Staff is always friendly.

Normally a pretty good place to go. I do NOT recommend going after 7:45 at night. The kids working are much too focused on going out to get drunk. (Per their conversation) They turn the phones off at 7:50 so you cannot place a to go order. We decided to go there to place our order and this is what... More

This place is the go to place for great cheese steak sandwiches. They load their cheese steaks down with loads of tasty shaved steak. Their bread is always soft on the inside and crispy on the outside. My wife loves them but I go there for the meatball sub. Good sized meatballs with the right amount of spice in a... More
