The Cheese Steak Shop has excellent cheese steaks!!! Based on the Trip Advisor report, I decided to try it. They were easy to get to, with parking beside the restaurant. Their cheese steaks were delicious!!! They are a good size, with great tasty steak, creamy cheese, and are delicious! I'd definitely recommend it!!!!

I LOVE cheesesteaks! Wanted something a little more health conscious. I went with the veggie option It had just enough meat and cheese to make it enjoyable. I recommend it for those of you trying to keep your lab work in reasonable limits

This is just a little hole in the wall. At first glance I questioned myself about even going inside but very happy I did. If I lived closer I'd become a regular.

The place isn't much to look at but the food was really good. I only tried the cheese steak and it was delicious.

This shop makes great cheese steaks. They offer all sorts of toppings. Along with cheese steaks, they offer side dishes of sorts and other main menu entrees. It seems this shop also produces handmade burgers if I can remember correctly however I was unable to try one of them.

Philly Cheese steaks are just the best. nothin' like 'em. I have been to several of these shops, in SF as well as Berkeley and Oakland, and they have all been de-lish. My one gripe, the 7" is too small, and the 10" is too big, so I wish they would make an 8 1/2. You just can't please some... More
