We came here late one night because we had a Groupon. The lady behind the counter was incredibly friendly and helpful. She even helped us hit the Groupon amount (even though I think we went a little over but she let us slide) We had BBQ wings which were big, hot and juicy. I had a cheese steak which was... More

Nice little place. I had salad and Cheese steak and a coke. There was a group of us on business. It had a order at a counter type set-up, but they brought it out to you. Nice acoustics for business discussion and very relaxed.

Had a pretty good cheesesteak here, nice soft bun and lots of good quality chopped steak, not quite as good overall taste sensation as some others I've had in Philly, but was very happy with it!

A couple blocks from city hall, the place offer many options for lunch: pizza, sandwiches, salads, etc. The prices are good for the location, and the place is really clean and has many tables. I recommend the cubano sandwich. The service was great.

Do not visit! Walked to this local restaurant as it was very close to my hotel. While ordering I started a conversation with the cashier about where she was from. It was a pleasant 3 minute chat, or so I thought. When my food was served 15 mins later, the manger asked me to take my food and eat else... More

Many options of american cuisine to choose from. Daughter chose the grill cheese with fries and I had spaghetti and meatball. HUGE portions and very affordable and food was prepared ABOVE average. Better than what you would expect for the price.

Upon a native Philly's recommendation, we went to Pandora's Lunchbox for lunch, specifically for the Philly cheesesteak. I ordered it with all the toppings that it should have...well, when I got it, it barely had cheese on it, plus no visible grilled onions, and 1 or 2 little roasted slivers of red peppers. There was no wow factor! I was... More

I am still not completely clear on the difference between Stromboli and Calzone, but Pandora's seems to be an excellent place to get a fresh (made to order) and delicious Stromboli, in a simple, almost coffee shop-like kitchen. Beer selection is not particular ample, but you can wash your Stromboli down with the local Yeungling brews, and take in a... More
