The chicken salad on a wheat roll was a mouth watering delight and the pizza has a taste that you will love .

I have been gone from the area for 50 years and we still will go out of our way to get to this place when we come back to the area. Everything is great but the Cheesesteaks and Special Italian Hoagies are to die for! If we would have had more time, we would have gone back and got more... More

Grew up literally 1 mile away from Phil and Jim's Hoagie Shop and moved to California when I was 26. When I come back home to visit family, I have them pick me up at the Philly airport and they know that we immediately head to Phil and Jim's to eat a cheesesteak while we are waiting for them to...

The food is GREAT. The guys behind the counter are always polite. The food is prepared quickly to order. Even when it is busy they seem to stay on top of things!

Some of the best cheese steak sandwiches in the Delco area. Great for a quick bite before an Eagles game.

The staff was polite and the food was ready very quickly. Their cheesesteaks and fries are very good, some of the best in the area.

This place had delicious cheesesteaks. The fries and the onion rings were very good. Portions are huge. Wanted to eat more, but couldn't finish. Great "greasy spoon" option. No sit down eating, only take out available. Wish they had the option to have beer. I was really craving a Yuengling and can't get it back home!

Sandwiches here are huge and a good buy. They have the best hoagie and cheese steaks around. Small establishment but has been in business a long time. They must be doing something right. People keep coming back for more and will travel some distance to get one of their sandwiches. Staff is friendly too.

Thank Diana M
