We went here, because Sonny's was so busy and it was hot. The cashier was rude, like she was doing us a favor to buy food there. She said the kids meal was 3.00 and I ordered. My total for me and 1 small child...More

Earlier this trip, I had a disappointing first Philly Cheesesteak made with hamburger instead of steak. Asking the locals, I found Campo's where I got the real thing, and plenty big. Highly recommended. The atmosphere? Small place with ordering line and inside tables. That's all...More

We ordered at the counter for our Philly cheesesteak. We must have entered nearing closing time as they only had one grill open and were limiting selections. The man behind us just left. We saw him eating down the street on our walk home. They...More

We enjoyed our cheese steak sandwiches with a good cold local beer. Be advised that they are CASH ONLY. It was our only taste when we were there so we can't compare but it was very good. It was walking distance from the Betsy Ross...More

I wanted to try Campo's because I never even heard of it, and I was born in South Philly. Well, it was in the magazine as one of the best and I had to try it. Ok, I like my steak not chop and secondly,...More
