Really great phillys. Don’t skimp on the toppings, we added plenty of cheese and peppers and it was absolutely delicious. I made the mistake of only adding cheese at first, but all the extras are what makes it! We also tried a chocolate soda (soda...More

Steve's is not the highest rated cheesesteak joint in Philly. However, I found it was great and appreciated the choices of cheese (I went with Wiz) and the available condiments for my sandwich. I would return!

Always go to Steve's Prince of Steaks when you are in town. Authentic feel to the spot and always cooked to order. One steak will fill you for two meals!

The steak was good. It hit the spot. The roll was fresh and definitely helped make the sandwich. I tried it and I will stop by again if Jims falls off...but Jims is better.

Visited in September 2018, and had the basic cheesesteak, with cheesewhiz. Service was good at a reasonable price. Sandwich was great. Just off Chestnut on 16th, close to city hall and Suburban station. Facility was clean. I recommend a visit.

I was surprised they go with a single slab of steak rather than the chopped fresh steak that the other places serve you. Bit dry and the cherry pepper relish wasn’t chopped. It was also $10 which was more than the larger cheesesteak you get...More
