The food was good, but I thought it was too expensive for the amount that you got. I got 2 philly cheese steak's about 6" a piece and paid $16.00 This was not a combo thing either.

Believe it or not we are the least expensive Philly in town, however we are the best. We use top quality black Angus beef we actually should charge more.

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...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.
