We don't eat beef anymore, but in our past lives we appreciated a good philly cheese steak. We ordered the chicken (mine with garlic) cheese steak sandwiches and these even surpass the best beef ones we've enjoyed.

Great sandwiches in a local setting. The Philly cheesesteak has tender beef and cheese and onions, peppers and mushrooms according to your taste. You might have trouble stopping after eating the small. So good.

I LOVE cheesesteaks! Wanted something a little more health conscious. I went with the veggie option It had just enough meat and cheese to make it enjoyable. I recommend it for those of you trying to keep your lab work in reasonable limits

This is just a little hole in the wall. At first glance I questioned myself about even going inside but very happy I did. If I lived closer I'd become a regular.
