Great philly steak sandwich. Great service in a very well kept place. Easy parking, good service. Makes everyone feel like family. Gives back to our community as well. Had a soda, philly steak and water ice for desert. You can't miss with this place 👍

This is the best place around to get a Philly cheese steak sandwich! After spending a lot of time in Philadelphia. I love Philly Cheese steaks and there are none like the ones at Philly's. They are just like the ones I used to get when I was in Philadelphia. I won't eat one anywhere else not that I have... More
