Was back in Philly for a family visit and made my annual stop at Larry's for a pizza steak. I have been eating at Larry's (old location on 63rd St.) since high school in the 60's and they are still the best steak sandwiches and hoagies. No cheese whiz here . . . only the best Provolone and Larry's pizza... More

The best cheesesteak in Philly!!! Soft roll, plenty of meat, onions, and cheese abound in this tasty delight!!! The French fries are crispy, too.

I was born and raised in Philadelphia, so I've enjoyed cheesesteaks since I was a youngster. I have yet to find a city in the US that can successfully mimic the tasty goodness of an authentic Philadelphia cheesesteak. When I DO make it to Philadelphia, I go right to Larry's, conveniently located at the St. Joe's campus. There's usually a... More

Classic cheese steaks in philly. On a college campus and made to order. The restaurant isn't always clean though and sometimes I've gotten cheesesteaks that seem reheated. I still like them.

The basic cheesesteak was tasty but not overwhelmingly great. The cheese was understated and not very rich. Good but not great.

I've had cheesesteak everywhere and Larry's is without a doubt one of the best. They don't use any of that Sh** you find at the famous places, but real authentic cheesesteak meat that doesn't turn to mush in your mouth like the other guys. Don't miss out on this place.

I hadn't been to Larry's in many years and was craving a cheesesteak today. Besides a 10-12 minute wait after ordering, I received a steak with very little meat. Your nickname is Bellyfiller, so I would have expected much more meat. I don't think Ive ever had less on a cheesesteak anywhere. The bread was fine (not as fresh as... More
