I live right by Claymont but only occasionally go there. It's good for a quick lunch but the food isn't anything to write home about.

Slow service but everything made fresh to order. A local tradition. Reasonable prices but not cheap.

The food is excellent but it is too expensive. It is on a college campus so I feel the prices should be a little more accommodating. But overall the staff is friendly and three atmosphere is great.

We always try to stop in when taking our daughter back to school in New York. The cheesesteaks are on chewy bread and full of steak and cooked onions. The cheese is just melted all over. It is very good and I usually have half...More
