We had an hour to kill after arriving at the airport in Philly. Did a random internet search for a cheesesteak place near the airport. Took a chance on Looies and glad we did. Seriously, take a chance on a small local joint- you can...More

My Fiance' and I found ourselves visiting Gooey LOUIES again, the food here is very good and the guy with the glasses that works in the back is very humorous as well. Their corned beef hoagie is to die for. It's always so crowded here...More

Well, Gooey Looies have been around for quite some time and I've been frequenting for a while now when I first came here the corn beef special was the best (and still is) a hoagie was about $5.75 and now a hoagie is $9.75. Crazy!!!...More

The atmosphere wasn't great but the food was tremendous. One of the best (if not the best) cheesesteaks in Philadelphia. Come here for the food and leave to eat somewhere else, not the greatest place for families to eat.

They offer a wide variety of sandwiches that are cheap and delicious. Their cheesesteaks are packed and cheaper than the more famous steak places. Our personal favorite is the cornbeef special. So big you can't get your mouth around it. Check out their website to...More

The hoagie was delicious! Filled with fresh, lovely layers of ham, this sandwich can't be beat for the value! The service was friendly as well. Bring cash and ENJOY!

Yes their cheesesteaks are large. However, the meat is bland and the overall steak doesn't have that much flavor. The rolls get way too soogy. This place isn't a secret, so don't think you found the spot where all the locals get their cheesesteak. Fifteen...More

Born and raise in the South Philly neighborhood of Pennsport/ 2nd street....down where the Mummers clubs are located, we have hidden our favorite foodie place. This is the real deal in Philly cheesesteaks and hoagies. ANYONE who doesn't like their sandwiches must be a cra-ZY!...More
