The green chili Philly is the go to my opinion. Don't be alarmed with the small coke and fry for the 12.00. I think it's well worth it on account of taste and portion size.. haven't tried anything else. Friendly service and local make this place a must.

If you're looking for an "authentic" Philly, this isn't the place for it, and I'll tell you why. For starters, their only choices for cheese are Swiss and Yellow American, two blasphemous choices for a true Philly. Their sub for whiz is nacho cheese--not the same but at least they try. Lastly, no Amoroso rolls. All that being said, it's... More

My kids are hooked on the Italian Ice and Green chili cheese fries here, and so am I! This place is a rejuvenated spot from the Itsa Ice on Lomas in the 90's, and we can't stay away!

We have eaten here many, many times. We love the food and the Italian ice. Clean restaurant, cute atmosphere and incredibly friendly service. The owners care about their business, and provide a great experience. We always look forward to eating here.

One of these days I am going to order something other than the Green Chile Philly. I am hooked on it, it is so tasty. So until that day comes, it's the Philly for me. Oh, and don't forget the Italian Ices.

Yes, very good sandwiches. Lived here all my life and didn't know of this place except their mobile ice truck, but man, my buddy turned me on to this place and great sandwiches and home cut fries. Apparently they have a monopoly with the type of beef they use in their sandwiches through their food wholesaler. Get the green chile... More

We ordered the green chili chese steak sandwich and found that it was not only good.... but AWESOME!! The staff was very friendly upon ordering, and actually came by the table to... More
