Great authentic Philly cheesesteaks from these guys. I usually order the Mushroom Steak with extra cheese and it's always super filling and worth the average price of $10. It's a great alternative to other fast food places which you get tired of after a hundred visits eating the same thing. Regardless of which Philly you choose, you'll come out with... More

I visited "Philly's Best" Lake Forest with two of my local bear guys on Tuesday, August 4th. We got in near closing time, which was 8pm - we had no problem ordering our sandwiches and sides and the staff were nice enough to allow us to eat inside the restaurant past the 8:00pm closing. My friends had the "Mushroom Steak",... More

Born in Philadelphia and raised in Malvern, PA I know what a Cheese Steak should taste like. After moving to CA years ago I could not find a good cheese steak sandwich anywhere. Once I located Philly's Best in Lake Forest I had finally found a restaurant that makes an almost as good as in Philly cheese steak. My favorite... More

The Philly's Cheesesteaks are amazing! My personal favorite is a cheesesteak without onions, and with American and provolone cheeses served on just half of an Amoroso® roll. The meat is so tender and juicy!!! Such great flavor. There are more topping options (mushrooms, sweet peppers, onions or pizza sauce) to add to your cheesesteak. Philly's Best ships Amoroso® rolls directly... More

Nice limited outdoor seating. Good cheese steaks. Fast service. French fries are not the greatest but certainly acceptable. Nice selection of beers.

This is the real thing, authentic cheesesteaks (beef or chicken) on delicious Amoroso's rolls from the east coast. If you aren't in the mood for something hot, their cold sandwiches are made from the same rolls and Boar's Head meats. You should also say yes to the Philly pepper spread, which really makes for a flavorful sandwich. There are also... More

Philly's is the BEST, hence the name :) Can't beat it, great tasty comfort food. My boyfriend begs for it all the time, and it really hits the spot on a lazy weekend.

This is an ok place for lunch. Price is right, but would probably try a different restaurant within the same shopping center next time.
