I tried the Ishka Steak (Mushrooms, American Cheese, Sweet Peppers, Pizza Sauce, and Onions). Seems like a pretty good combo but for some reason it was a little bland, bun was soggy, and the whole thing was not that hot coming out. Found myself reaching...More

Went there before the NFC Championship Game (Eagles/Vikings). Never had a true authentic Philly cheese steak (with the exception of Tony Luke's that I reviewed as well). This place was a bit trickier getting to but it was well worth the effort. Having the two...More

This is a great place to come if the line at Jims is too long. This location has very limited seating so don’t expect to eat the food here; most ppl get it for take away. The steaks are above average with finely chopped beef,...More

If you want to try cheesesteaks away from the more touristy places, you should go here. All the ingredients you'd want to throw on your cheesesteak are there for asking. Also, they make their french fries to order so they taste super fresh! The place...More

We held off on getting the cheesesteak, I’m told by another patron they are incredible but my wife who hails from the city of brotherly love thought it blasphemous to get a cheesesteak from any other place than that of her youth. So a good...More

Looking for a quick cheesesteak. The cheesesteak was decent. It was very large yet enjoyable. French fries were good. No coke products. The restaurant a little dated and a bit dodgy yet plenty of space. Order at the counter and number is called with food.

In town for a funeral, met a young man (Roy) that works at the Airport Residence Inn. I asked him where do the locals say the best Philly Cheese Steak is? Without hesitation he told me Ishkabibble's on South St. He was right, the best...More

Hands down, one of the best places we've visited so far! Delicious food and almost no wait! Only downside, there really aren't many seats inside, so we took our food to go. Will definitely go back!

I went with friends on a Saturday around 7pm. There wasn't a line and we got oit food really fast. You can dine in, it's a decent size restaurant with plenty of seating. The cheesesteak was dry and didn't have a lot of onions and...More
