Stopped for the Philly Cheesesteak and it was really good. Asked for light onions and they fixed it just right. The bun was fresh and the sandwich served hot with just enough Cheese Wiz on it.

As a transplanted Philadelphian I have to say that South-A-Philly is pretty close to the real thing. This was my first cheese steak EVER outside of Philadelphia. If you know what "whiz wit" means then you know where I'm coming from. Here's what they do...More

First off, this restaurant is inside a large building that houses several businesses. If you are looking for a sign outside, you will be walking in circles! The building is just across the street from the bay on the SW side of town. We went...More

Dark, sort if depressing, ask hostess/waitress to warm up my hoagie and then after waiting a while had to go up to counter to ask for my food. She went on break and the only other person there was the cook. Food was ok.

Had two cheesesteaks and a chicken salad sandwich. The cheese steaks were good with a proper ratio of onions the chopped steak. They had cheese whiz which is also authentic. Rolls were not real fresh (think we were there right before close). The chicken salad...More

My husband and I treat ourselves to a South-a-Philly hamburger whenever we have a few dollars to spare. At 4.99 each, they are a good deal for downtown St. Augustine, and they are simply delicious--classic burger with trimmings. The fries are great, too. And just...More

I've had steak subs while in the city of Philadelphia. The subs from this establishment were right on par (be aware that Philly steak subs are on the blander side to begin with). I think this sub was actually a tiny bit better than the...More

We are a staff of friends and family who are proud to bring you the best tasting cheesesteaks and hoagies in Florida. Our bread is shipped down par-cooked from South Jersey, then baked fresh throughout the day, so you can enjoy authentic flavor straight from the oven. Each day we slice our rib-eye by hand to ensure our steak is tender and delicious; we would never dream of serving that pre-sliced stuff! We have original Cheez Whiz to give your cheesesteak that real Philadelphia flavor, the same way we ate them growing up. If that’s not your thing, we also offer American, Provolone, and Swiss cheeses, all from Dietz and Watson, who also provides all of our Italian meats (for an unforgettable Italian hoagie that will make you think you’re right back in Philly!). We have put our hearts into creating sandwiches we are proud to serve, and we hope you enjoy eating them as much as we enjoy making them.
